APM at the heart of the World First...

...Crowdsourced 3D-Printed QR Code Live Streamed Via Go Pro To A Smart Phone Or Tablet Device Drone Delivery Ticket System Project ...

I was asked to bring this crazy concept to life in just 2 weeks. 

I started with my TBS Disco Pro and tried to talk them out of actually lifting a 3D printer - nope, they wanted a flying 3D printer.

I went through several flight controllers NAZA, KK2 before finally settling on the APM. I'm going to document this fully over the next week.

In case it's not clear this is about getting cynical creative people to a new event.

  • Hilarious!

  • I like the high five guy.

  • Hilarious. "Nano that technology..."  "Guess you have to catch the next bus."  Hints of Silicon Valley + Steven Colbert + ?. Worth watching more than once!

  • Well flitetest did flying blender ( http://flitetest.com/articles/Will_it_Blend_ ) and toster ( http://flitetest.com/articles/flying-toaster ) some time ago :)

  • Superb.

  • hahaha this was the most i've laughed in a long time :p

  • No worries mate.

    I must admit when you first told me that you needed to make a 3D printer fly... I truly thought you might be a few mAh short of a full charge.

    The results though, as they say, are like totes amazeballs bro!

  • Thanks Quadzimodo - and thanks for dragging me out to fly/crash it in the early stages. I probably wouldn't have made it in time otherwise.

  • Yep, a total game changer!

    Well done Ian.  This is just outstanding.  So many fantastic quotes I could not list them all. Funniest thing I have seen in ages.

    Looking at the number of views accumulated in just 2 days I expect the event will be a huge success.

    Love the Twitter handle:


    Can't wait to see what you come up with next!
