Honest question, is there actually any practical combat use for these sorts of things?
Obviously they're not very stealthy, they're probably too heavy to carry around and they probably don't have much in the way of fuel. I honestly can't think of anything other than maybe jetting up something that you can't be bothered climbing.

flying past windows
Or lift off far from the target building and then land on it, helicopters also need to go up at some point.
This looks like a cool and compact piece of tech, flying people could probably also be useful in non military scenarios of searching for wounded people after a disaster and quickly applying first aid, like bikes but without the restrictions of the roads.
It all comes down to cost, fly time and how hard is it to control this and land.

That seems to make the soldier very vulnerable, up there in the sky with no cover. Poor choice of technology for crowd control. A Muslim wouldn't even need to hit the soldier, or even use a firearm, to do tremendous damage to him. Fire an arrow or slingshot and hit the hover device, and the soldier comes crashing down to the hard ground.

Honest question, is there actually any practical combat use for these sorts of things?

The video says, for the uncivilized amongst you, that it's mostly special forces who have taken an interest in it, and that the technology belongs to a private company: Zapata. Their website is so broken unfortunately that I can barely extract any info from it. Takes forever to load and there are FAQs without answers on the page. Bottomline: I still don't know how much it costs, weighs, or how far in development it is.

It's not arms free. On most photos there's a controller in the pilot's left hand. (And also a M16 prop because July 14th amirite?)

Camden Gonzalez

Looks cool, but for it be useful in combat operations it could benefit from some armor on the sides, putting a rotor and same big ass blades at the top+ a much stronger engine so that it can fly faster. Could possibly be made to carry multiple people and even some ammo.

Jordan Morris

not rescue then, but a similar functionally to motorcycles, quickly arriving at the scene to apply first aid, and flight could achieve that better due to a lack of obstacles.
Whenever there's a major earthquake, send a bunch of people on these things to scout the area, look for wounded and help them out, and then mark the spot for proper rescue.
Not really a combat scenario but armies do often send aid in catastrophes, and compact flying machines to stack up and take to the scene sounds pretty darn useful

Raimi later admitted that roughly 50 hours of footage was filmed of Dafoe's performance as Norman Osborn, with barely 1% of this making the final cut. 'We just had reels and reels of it,' the director said, 'I would say cut, but he would just keep going deeper and darker, bringing all of these ideas into it that weren't in the script. For example, a sub plot of Norman's father being an SS officer, or the idea that the Goblin transformation represented Nietzsche's Ubermensch. So after I while, I stopped saying 'cut'.' Other actors recalled Dafoe's usage of multiple props to aid his performance that he brought himself, presumably from his own home. 'He had this large green dildo he loved to wave about,' Tobey Maguire remembers, 'sometimes he would bring it out of nowhere and slap me across the face with it. During fight scenes when we were grappling on the ground he would tease it around my 'beautiful asshole', as he called it.' James Franco also recalled him having 'this large, antique bullwhip... we asked where he got it from, and he would only say that it was a family heirloom. Some prop guys on set said it must have been from at least the 1800s. On a few occasions when I fucked up my lines, he would threaten me with it, telling me to give him an excuse 'to pay out like old Buck Dafoe did to the little negro boys'. Another actor from the film, who requested she remained private, said Dafoe always had a copy of the Quran lying around on set, and some PAs caught him 'poring over it repeatedly' in his trailer.
