Flite Test: ArduCopter 3DR Hexa Waypoint Rescue!

The awesome team at Flite Test do a practice rescue mission with ArduCopter, equal parts entertaining and impressive:

Josh gets stranded so we deliver rescue supplies with the ArduCopter 3DR Hexa autonomously using waypoints!

Even though the ArduCopter 3DR Hexa is equipped with FPV, we wanted to deliver the supplies to Josh using only the waypoints and line of sight.

Setting up waypoints is as easy as clicking where you'd like the 3DR Hexa to go!

Chad was shooting aerial video with this AnyCopter Hex customized it with the RCTIMER 2-Axis Brushless Gimbal For GoPro.
