just enjoy it!
That is the best example of of how not to operate a copter that I think I have ever seen. Did you ever think what would happen if that thing malfunctioned and tumbled down on someones head. Maybe you should use your head a little bit and not post dangerously irresponsible flights on a public forum. Or at least post a disclaimer that you are not in the US. I really love my hobby and don't want it banned. And no, I didn't enjoy the video.
+1 Greg, just why I said at least 500m from structures etc etc for the latest T3 and that was flagged as too harsh by some.
Its not quite the same size but last years S-100 crash and fatality demonstrates that GPS have issues. We are all playing at the cutting edge lets be careful.
Can you teach it to get some Dr. Pepper? I don't drink coffee but I sure could use a Dr. Pepper.
The whole thing looked a bit... no, a LOT staged. I'm assuming there was no GPS flying going on. They flew out the window in manual, came back, put a coffee on it, then restaged it and flew back in the window in manual.
I have a spirit glider and if you launch it from the top of a hill when it gets lower than you are there is no way of telling how high it is off the ground when you are looking down on it I noticed the same visual effect as the hex was descending before they blacked it out I am with R.L. a LOT staged !
Staged or not, and I think it was, is irrelevant. Who would fly in such a congested area above crowded sidewalks. I sure wouldn't want to be liable for a broken windshield or stitches in some random persons head.
I have to agree with Robert, a lot looks staged, coffee cup is empty, just for starters, we dont know what is below could be trees or a roof top. unit in the distance have trees out front. I would not fly from that height in that area but that's me, I have had enough failures to know better ;)
As soon as i saw the pic video from the main page I knew you were in a for a blasting by the community re safety...but putting that aside for a moment, I did enjoy the video and it does express a dream many of us have that flying robots will be capable of tasks like this (and much much more) in the future.
Warning: Your coffee may be hot... And falling...
Lol. Entertaining, but a little too staged ;)
Christ sake can't someone enjoy a little fun without someone butting in with stupid non-exisistant safety issue! If the dam things are that unreliable they should be banned! I think the odds of being hit by a car are a hell of a lot higher than having a hexacopter fall on your head! You need to get a life and quit whining!
Sorry but I am so sick of people whining about issues that have no significance in life. I can think of a hundred other dangerous issues you could be using to scare the public with...
