Yup, I know.  It is cool, but maneuverability is not the same as knowing how and when to avoid one obstacle without hitting another.  Ask deep questions about sensors/software to avoid hitting other UAVs and aircraft. Ask about automating the coordination of airspace between multiple aircraft that are flying like that little quadcopter.We're not there yet. We are engineering the building blocks to get there, but we are just not there yet.

This is the video of UAV aerobatics from September 2013:

This is the professional ace pilot, do not try it at home. It requires
years of daily training to pilot an UAV like this. And we certainly do
not need this type of flying for mapping.

It is just a visual demonstration how quickly this technology is moving

By the way, on eBee there is also a possibility to take over the
autopilot and pilot it manually.
