Just received this link from my professor. Pretty cool stuff.

I can imagine a possible future for that things... a group of quads flying together, all them positioning around the window, scanning and sharing each singular perspective of 3D spatial info. Each one calculates a patch for itself. So one by one pass through the role. It would be nice! :)

If only highspeed, HD cameras weren't so heavy. Then we could have a bunch of them on the quad, looking all around, and tracking the environment for attitude estimation. Kinda like an IMU, except with zero drift.

One day... :)

It's not really about the quad - it's about the software which can apply to many other platforms.

Must be able to reverse the thrust on those motors in order to do that kind of maneuvering...I wonder if they simply reverse direction of the motors on the fly?

I still think having it chasing the perp. down the hallway and hit him with a taser gun would be fun! LOL

Ah your right any quad can do that, its all in the software.

Years ago when I saw my first modern quad rotor craft, I chuckled to myself that it was just a cool toy and never could be a real RC. Well now folks I think well you know that nasty w word, well heck I'll say it wrong. Not only a serious RC platform but looks like this could be the future of short range surveillance. I've never thought of building a quad rotor before but it looks like it's going to get on the list. With the level of control and accuracy displayed in the video, I can't imagine any other platform to be used for getting into small places for remote surveillance. I'm very impressed.

Really impressive!!

That is incredible.

I imagine performing complex maneuvers like that also involves some route planning too, a lot of work went into this.
