"Watch your step or DIE," the video caption reads as Swedish engineer Axel Borg climbs into his homemade "multicopter."
Essentially a chair on a simple frame connected to eight gas-powered propellers, the contraption roars like a dozen lawnmowers before lifting off the ground.

Borg manages to hover several feet up and turn around a few times in what looks like a remote wooded area of Sweden. This chair is meant for the outdoors. He's been working on the multicopter for more than a year, documenting the progress on his Amazingdiyprojects YouTube channel, UPI reported.
Navigation is shaky, not surprising given that the multicopter contains a hobby-grade R/C controller, as Gizmag pointed out. Fortunately he was using remote control when it crashed during a test flight in January (video). In a different video where he fills up a gas tank strapped to the seat, the caption reads: "I love electric. However 30 seconds from depleted to fully recharged, with 100 percent power to the very end, is useful in this application."
Besides creating this wild machine, Borg's other terrifying projects chronicled on YouTube include a flying firecracker, a homemade compressed air BB gun, and a fireball maker. I feel for his neighbors.

Describing a day full of flights in a recent video, Borg noticed that the multicopter picks up a lot of dust. "I also had a pretty close encounter with a tree, which was interesting" he said. "Other than that, it was uneventful, which is really, really good considering...lots of things."
Did I mention that he's not wearing a helmet? Another one of his video captions reads,"Having this much fun should be illegal. Oh wait...it probably is." Then there's a smiley face emoticon. Seriously, kids, don't try this at home:
