Here is a 3 minute video of a human lifting turbine drone using an EB2 for the flight controller. Don't worry, I'm not doing free flight tests (yet!). For now, it's just a (very expensive) flight simulator.
Next phase is using Intel Edison controllers embedded in the gloves and helmet to provide body gesture control via ROS. Also planning to use VR to provide the "Iron Man" style HUD and to simulate flying over Mariner Valley on Mars. Anyone want to go for a ride?
