World’s Largest Homemade Drone

Titled “world’s largest homemade drone” by the world’s most popular drone-lover and YouTuber, Casey Neistat, this one is indeed a monster. It’s hexadeca-copter with 16 31-inch carbon fiber propellers powered by 16 independent motors. This flying giant is 10 feet in diameter, weighing 165 pounds! It carries 16 batteries, capable of generating a stunning 1050 pound thrust at full capacity. It can produce strong enough electric current at any given moment equivalent to starting 10 v8-engined automobiles, and store 81 kilowatts of power, capable of powering an average American home for 40 hours straight.
