@Sanjib: Hope to own one if I could...I am sure now that making this on my own would remain a dream...because I guess I was never as serious as these folks!! :)

Everyone devotes time to the hobby/activity in which they are most interested. I've got too many things on the go at the moment, but I do hope one day to build a large hexacopter to play with...

@Max: Very true!! I had a wish to make an RC airplane (I am fond of the flying machines). I told this to many of my friends and colleagues who possess similar interest, but alas...I could not fulfill that wish and it remained a dream. In 2006 I bought one RC plane (having two electric motors, not a gas engine one) but I hardly flown it 5-6 times before I crashed it to an advertising hoarding. I changed my plan to make a copter so that it hangs in the air and does not have to attain speed as an airplane to fly (less chance of crashing :))...but again it remained a dream. I could not find a stable toy so far. But now I see a lots happening around it and engineers making this a serious hobby/work. That is good!! Hope to own one if I could...I am sure now that making this on my own would remain a dream...because I guess I was never as serious as these folks!! :)

@Sanjib: Amazing!!!...how are these drones synchronized?

My understanting is that there's a central controller sending out streams of commands -- the drones are just responsible for being in the right place at the right time.

I LOVE this stuff!!!

Amazing!!!...how are these drones synchronized? Any idea if there is a wireless communication between these robots which is maintaining the order...or is there a central computer/controller that is commanding these drones and maintaining the order (most probably)? The control is also superb for these drone copters!
