I just saw the movie yesterday, and one of the things I walked away from the movie with was I wonder who's gonna be the first one to build a tri-copter body kit that looks like this thing....

I talked to Gary Gress and he's working on a 250 version of his heli, with prop shrouds. We just need to find somebody to build the bodies. Here's what he said: "...most of the hardware for a prototype is already here. The 4" dia rotors are ringed - so no seperate shrouds are required. A much simpler (and cheaper) gyro module - for this model only - is in development." "....The paramaters are: 4" fans (from Hobbico's Quantum Flyer), and an Align T-Rex 250 landing gear."
