Farmer builds homemade flying saucer [VIDEO]

Homemade Flying Saucer

Shu Mansheng, a farmer from China’s Hubei province, has built himself a UFO-like flying device which is powered by eight motorcycle engines attached to propellers.

The 46-year-old aviation enthusiast, who has only a basic school education, spent around £6,000 on his first flying saucer last year but it failed to take off. Shu was not discouraged by the bungle and started to work on his second version this year which he has now successfully flown–to a height of only two meters.

I know, the flying saucer doesn’t look exceptional, but you try building an aircraft with your own hands. I can’t even make a small kite with mine.
