Looks like helicopter landing gear to me. They might double as some kind of antenna.

Aircraft is a hexrotor. Quadrotors are more common, lots of hobbyists are flying them. It is possible this one is a hobbyist’s.

Hobbyists is what I was thinking. There are some pretty amazing hobby craft flying. Some feature put you in the cockpit cameras. They also displat GPS info on the operators screen. Some screens are built into goggles!

I’d like to have one!

Of course there will soon be outrage over people flying them around neighborhoods. Can you imagine one hovering over a sunbathing babe or outside a bedroom window?

There are some small ones going on sale next month that will home in on you and follow you around recording what you do. Several could fly in formation around you.

Look for a ban soon!
