New patented tilted coaxial VTOL
Interesting coaxial monocopter UAV build, with the motor mount providing roll and pitch. I wonder how yaw is done with a single motor though?

OFM Hyper 330 Ultimate FPV Racing Quadcopter | Only Flying Machines
Interesting tilt mechanism to keep the body level during accelerated forward flight. Is the added weight worth the effort? Might be for keeping the FPV video camera stable and staying aerodynamic, compared to a tilt stance regular quad with compensating video camera gimbal.

Zippy, but surprised it isn't a tail sitter. Though if it really carried hard drives, then it really would be a packet copter of sorts. Maybe an update to RFC1149?

IROS 2013: Should Quadrotors All Look Like This? - IEEE Spectrum
Interest variation on the Y-copter design. Claims propulsion efficiencies over traditional quadcopters, mostly through a high efficiency achieved through using larger slow blades for primary lift (long blades moving a lot of air slowly are more efficient than a fan that moves a small amount of air fast)

Prox Dynamics - Welcome
Makers of the PD-100 Black Hornet surveillance microUAV, used currently by US army groups as a short range tactical scout, looking around corners and exposed spaces. Small so man portable, not luggable, and the soldiers seem to like it as it is simple to deploy and operate. Self stabilized too. Probably also cheap(er) so can be considered more expendable, which makes a soldier more likely to want to use it. Roughly the size of your hand.

Hexapod Hexcopter
Interesting proof of concept for a walking/flying hybrid drone. Next step is on the fly splitting/joining of the two main parts, so you can have either an ad-hoc hybrid heterogeneous drone, or in the more general case a UAV/UGV hybrid that can do autonomous launch/recovery of ground assets.

Fly Your POV Around with Your Own Personal Quadcopter | h+ Magazine
