I have sheer morbid curiosity as to what would happen if we stacked like 6 or 8 500 outrunners on there..

Here's some of the biggest ones i was able to find on youtube so far:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdAiRWHdDGY - uavframe.com 6-rotor lifting 10.5 kilos?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g56wwlp4p7s - 6-rotor Mikrokopter lifting 15 cans of beer  - doesn't seem to be entered, just a random video

Let's beat the non-entered video, and enter.

I like this idea... Dan Burroughs has an octocopter I think. I think the sport board will take the additional motors, right?

I don't get it.. have they already announced first place prizes, or is that just who's leading?

Matt, I've seriously been thinking of getting into building a small airplane or other such thing after you mentioned those carbon fiber arms you were able to get ahold of.
