When you're working with hundreds of pounds of cable or rope, such drones are not up to the task.  And most of us have seen them fly out of control if the weight of the cable shifts unexpectedly.

They used fishing line.

That would make sense.  
The weight of the cable itself would be too much.  But its great seeing new and more ways in which our UAVs can be used.

It would be great if they could do this outside controlled conditions.

Multiple drones and loads of string. What could possibly go wrong?  

Very impressive though, like something out of a scifi book.

Next is a 3D mounted printer; you could even do the supports!
