Popular Mechanics has predicted and featured something like that every 6 months since about 1944.

And what if a bird hits your props and they get so out of balance they cut your head off!!!

When Obama's nanny state gives me my free one, I'll just trade it in on a good horse.

Looking at the guy flying it, that's going to be hell on your neck trying to look ahead for any length of time.

I love how it's for covert military use and rescue ..... I reckon the sardine flying it would need rescuing more often than not ..... you ain't going to get much in that fuselage in the way of rescue, though I guess you could rapidly extract small items in it. Leave no ration pack behind.

Probably easy to shoot down as well once in range of the ground.
