Two Guys Make a Drone Using KFC Buckets

If you’ve never heard of The Magnus Effect here’s a little quick definition for you:  The Magnus effect is the commonly observed effect in which a spinning ball (or cylinder) curves away from its principal flight path. It is important in many ball sports. It affects spinning missiles, and has some engineering uses, for instance in the design of rotor ships and Flettner airplanes.  The force is of tremendous importance to all athletes who want to bend the flight of a ball.  As a spinning ball moves through the air, it spins a boundary layer of air that clings to its surface as it travels along.

So why did I even bother to share this definition with you?  Simple.  Without the Magnus force, there’s no way these two guys would be able to do what they’re doing in the video you are about to see.  While I think time might be better spent than creating a drone that flies because of two KFC Buckets, you can’t deny this guys have incredible creativity or the fact that this video is extremely interesting to watch.
