This is a scratch-proof quadcopter.

This quadcopter has four 1″ square woody arm, each 36″ (900 mm) long. A pair of central copper strips connect the motors to the battery. The motors and battery are mounted on the bottom of the drone, as far from the rocket’s blast as possible. The metal disk at the center is placed to absorb the rocket’s blast. Here is the video.
