Neat. A human carrying multi-copter. But the big questions, how much can it carry for how long, how fast, how far? The robot announcer noted at the end 'an optional pusher propeller can be added'. How do multi-copters handle high speed? Like any new technology, it doesn't seem very useful yet. I'm sure it will evolve.

Hi
High speed i could do with out as just being able to rise above land bound vehicles and not have to use roads to get to my destination would be a real treat, range imho would be more important
Take care my friend
Yours Hank
