Imagery from a multiwii quadcopter. Described by Forbes:

Someone going by the name Tretch5000 has posted a truly haunting FPV (First Person Video) portrait of Detroit that mixes the lush greenery of the city’s Belle Isle with the decay of abandoned buildings. He used a camera mounted on a personal drone similar to the ones the U.S. Military uses to soar high above the landscape and skip along the ground, taking in the city’s ruins.

    From the video description:

    Copter is from Multiwiicopter.com, 
    It's called (the Scarab QUAD X Stealth-FPV Reconn - ARF Electronica - Quadcopter)

  • Having lived in Detroit, the video was pretty interesting.  There's no end of amazing scenes there.  Capturing it with FPV is a great idea since most of it requires trespassing.

    Very cool :-)

  • Far from it! it's a TBS discovery frame... rest is TBD

  • That is indeed a very good video....from the looks of it, and looking at the shadow on the ground at 1:20, looks like an Parrot AR.Drone??
