Marco Robustini wanted to test the accuracy of the ArduCopter code. So he decided to suspend bottles from his multi-copter, to find out how it would cope with huge variations in weight and trim. As you can see it handled things pretty well.

Note: Multi-copters are not toys and deliberately unbalancing one could prove more than usually dangerous, even for makers.
