Swedish Inventor Builds Massive DIY ‘Flying Chair’ And Somehow Survives Test Flight

An inventor and YouTuber, Axel Borg has always wanted to build a flying machine.

Well with the help of four enormous batteries, a chair and more tiny propellors than we’ve ever seen Borg has realised his dream.

Looking like a vast quadcopter, Borg’s flying machine is what is known as a multirotor vehicle thanks in part to the vast number of rotors that are being use to provide the lift.

Borg’s creation has taken him years to build but considering it has been his dream to fly since college we’ll cut him some slack.

The craft apparently uses the same control scheme as a remote control quadcopter which should make it relatively easy to fly, indeed Borg’s test flights show that he’s already pretty adept at handling this giant fly swat.

So how much did this flying deathtrap cost Borg to make? Around $10,000.

Considering that’s about as much as a perfectly good small car, we wouldn’t recommend running out and making your own anytime soon.
