Tech Video: World's First Manned Flight With An Electric Multicoptor

I don't know if i'd want to be surrounded by all of those open blades but it's still pretty cool. Is  that a Hippity Hoppity they used for the base?
At the end of October 2011, Thomas Senkel of e-volo made the first manned flight with an electric multicopter at an airstrip in the southwest of Germany. The flight lasted one minute and 30 seconds, after which the constructor and test pilot stated: "The flight characteristics are good natured. Without any steering input it would just hover there on the spot". This could be the future of flight, piloting a device as simple as a car. More information: www.e-volo.com
