Anyone spot the flaw,,It's the helmet,,if you crash and you get ripped up by the blades the helmet is kind of a joke, still I liked this for its capability to actually get off the ground.

You guys might want to consider a roll cage for the operator, might be better and offer more of a illusion of safety, to be placed under the blades in the center to give better stability as would offer a center of gravity, like what a helicopter has.
