You’ve probably seen earlier versions of this drone bouncing off furniture and walls, and that’s the point, it bounces off and keeps going.  The gimbal system allows the enclosing cage to rotate freely, and the counterrotating propellers cancel torque.  Steering is accomplished by vectoring thrust from the propellors, using movable vanes.  The net result is a very robust machine, that can be sent into the unknown, like a disaster site, with a high expectation of survival.

Want to learn more about their gimbal system? Check out this post by Flyability co-founder and CTO Adrien Briod:
