Octo-copter transport truck

Advanced Tactics' ( AT ) autonomous Black Knight Transformer might not be compact enough to get swallowed by an aircraft's engine , but it still comes under the guidelines of the FAA after completing its first flight . The huge and unwieldy-looking monster is lifted by 8 motors that swing out from the frame for flight -- though sadly , we don't get a glimpse of the transformation . Engineered as a transport system for modular payloads , AT desires of someday seeing its creation floating a boat by adding to an amphibious hull , or carrying cargo without the need for a human pilot . In the video clip after the break , the Transformer slowly putters about and then demonstrates a low altitude hover . Future iterations might see the Black Knight hovering on station for up to 19 hours carrying 150lb ( 68kg ) of ISR gear or delivering up goods with up to 1 .75-ton weight limits .
