Shu's innovative spirit is worthy of our admiration, said Ding Kai, an employee at a local drone maker in Wuhan. Ding is a friend of Shu, and has provided technical support for his friend's flying saucer project. He said that Shu has achieved his dream of flying thanks to his great learning ability, but added that test flights of homemade aircraft should be conducted in compliance with the law and under safe conditions.

His spirit is certainly admirable but the result is doomed to not as happy as he expected!
