Jared Reabow’s sweet multirotor is made entirely of laser-cut parts, other than the electronics, and it took only 8 hours to build, including a dinner break… he built it for a BBC interview.

Jared’s octorotor (“the Spider”) packs 8 Donkey ST4010 brushless motors as well as 40-amp electronic speed controllers, plus four 3000-mah Zippy Flightmax LiPo batteries and an ArduPilot Mega 2.5 flight controller. [via DIY Drones]
