The Flying Chair

Let’s be honest: who hasn’t at some point wished for their own personal flying machine? But while most of us lack the motivation and, let’s face it, the technical know-how to make such fantasies a reality, no such barriers exist for Swedish engineer Axel Borg, a.k.a. the brains behind YouTube channel Amazing DIY Projects.
Using eight petrol-powered heavy duty propellers, a tube lattice frame, a hobbyist R/C controller and a seat, Borg has assembled a pair of home-made flying multirotors. “What I have done is to combine various, easy-to-source parts and materials in order to fulfill the old pipe dream of backyard flying,” he tells Digital Trends.
