It's easy to get consumed with all of the design, development, and testing of DIY UAV's. Add to that the daily barrage of "drone" media happenings/hype and it's easy to get in a rut. Sometimes it's nice to just fire up an aircraft and take it for a spin. Nothing like getting a little air into the lungs and "under the props", so to speak. Did just that yesterday and made a little video of a TeensyFly Hexa outfitted with a LisaMX autopilot getting some exercise. "All work and no play ...", well, you know how the saying goes. Enjoy.

Public Labs camera mod?

Dave Giles no this is just a bit of iMovie video filter, that's a good idea though. :) I do plan to fly the Public Labs NIR camera as one of the payloads for this airframe.

Ah! Looks like you used the Negative (or X-Ray) filter when using VLC's colors filters for playback. When I play with the VLC filters, the thickness of persistent vapor trails that day really come through.

If you tinker with the Raspberry Pi, the Raspberry Pi NoiR IR camera board looks interesting. It's cheap, too. Only about $25-$30 for a 5MP sensor with the infrared blocking filter already removed. 

5MPixel Omnivision 5647 sensor
Still picture resolution: 2592 x 1944
Max video resolution: 1080p
Max frame rate: 30fps @ 1080p
Size: 20 x 25 x 10mm
