I am. The model has four horizontal propellers. The guy claimed
there was a piezoelectric gyro within which fed additional power
to the appropriate propeller to keep the rig stable. His controls
were simple enough and he flew it around briefly. My neighbor
has one like it, so it is evidently a kit of some sort. I cant find
a site that describes that rig, but here are a couple of interesting
sites for electric helicopter fans. The first one shows an electric
helicopter dropping a sugar cube into a cup of tea. {8-]

This is how I know the singularity is coming: we have so
damn much idle technology and money, we are doing silliness
like this with it. {8^D spike
