Flying bathtub

After their first manned drone failed due to the weather affecting the batteries and the overall low center gravity design, the twins figured a bathtub would be a viable solution. The bathtub was modified to fit a welded frame and wooden propellers were used. A German aerospace company called Exabotix provided a flight controller and helped with programming the drone; they also allowed the twins to test their invention inside a company owned basketball gym in the city of Niedersachsen. A test run with 154 pounds of tiles was conducted to see if it was safe. Once the drone proved to be capable of flying stable with weight equivalent to a grown man, one of the twins geared up and sat inside the flying bathtub. The DIY invention was controlled by a separate pilot, and it flew about 5 feet high.
