I don't understand why they have a quadrotor, yet also have all four of them pivoting, and apparently in multiple axis each... it sure looks neat, but I'd have to almost certainly say it's fake. Also fake, getting a nice close look at the SMG on there, there's no apparent magazine, and I can pretty much guarantee the recoil from an automatic weapon, especially one magically light enough to be carried on something that small, is going to provide a kick far exceeding what is shown in the video. Having fired automatic weapons, I'll say if you're not ready for it, it's about like holding a pressure washer at full power, it'll make you start taking steps back if your footing wasn't ready. Also, the barrel is very low and firing tangent compared to the CG, which couldn't be worse for providing a torque that would try to pitch the aircraft in a forward roll.
The only thing to applaud here is some very nice special effects and slipping computer graphics into real footage *almost* flawlessly. At high quality and full screen, it really looks unnatural when flying. The "first person" view when firing also shows almost no reaction to recoil during automatic fire, when it should be showing distinct and abrupt effects to the point of aim.
