Don't think that the prototype went sideways.

Won't go forward because not enough power to overcome friction of the drums?

Try it on wet grass--heard that  you can land a plane with floats on that.

the reason it's going sideways is probably because both "screws" are turning the same direction, whereas the "screws" in the youtube video spun opposite directions, I.E. both "screws" turned inward.
