A drone takes off from atop another drone.
But hey, at least we can launch drones off of drones now, right?
The intrepid team over at Flite Test did some quadcopter tinkering, resulting in a bite-size, remote-controlled Helicarrier. Capable of terrorizing the skies of your local neighborhood (or South Park), the mini-carrier is big enough to serve as a flying runway for one of Flite Test’s smaller single-engine creations.
The video of the two takeoffs can be seen here.
The Helicarrier drone was not cheap, using four $130 motors, and a total of $1,000 worth of hardware. And even then, you can see the craft struggle to some degree with balance and weight, even with the smaller drone on top being a lightweight.
