Looks very cool!
Wonder how they maintain hover on position while tilted in forward direction.
Maybe the duct fan can reverse the stream?

Yes, they are using ESC's that can run the motors backwards but only the motors in the pods.

I could see a niche FPV market here, i want to build one of these and try, but i can barely keep a regular quadcopter in the air, let alone something more complex like this

That is a really cool idea. Thought it was neat before their lights turned on, then wow.

Was wondering the same thing at first. They have 5 props. Two lift props are on the front spar between the nacelles.
