That is the best example of of how not to operate a copter that I think I have ever seen. Did you ever think what would happen if that thing malfunctioned and tumbled down on someones head. Maybe you should use your head a little bit and not post dangerously irresponsible flights on a public forum. Or at least post a disclaimer that you are not in the US. I really love my hobby and don't want it banned. And no, I didn't enjoy the video.

+1 Greg, just why I said at least 500m from structures etc etc for the latest T3 and that was flagged as too harsh by some.

Its not quite the same size but last years S-100 crash and fatality demonstrates that GPS have issues. We are all playing at the cutting edge lets be careful.

Can you teach it to get some Dr. Pepper?  I don't drink coffee but I sure could use a Dr. Pepper.

The whole thing looked a bit... no, a LOT staged. I'm assuming there was no GPS flying going on.  They flew out the window in manual, came back, put a coffee on it, then restaged it and flew back in the window in manual.

I have a spirit glider and if you  launch it from the top of a hill when it gets lower than you are there is no way of telling  how high it is off the ground when you are looking down on it I noticed the same visual effect as the hex was descending before they blacked it out  I am with R.L. a LOT staged !

Staged or not, and I think it was, is irrelevant. Who would fly in such a congested area above crowded sidewalks. I sure wouldn't want to be liable for a broken windshield or stitches in some random persons head.

I have to agree with Robert,  a lot looks staged, coffee cup is empty, just for starters, we dont know what is below could be trees or a roof top. unit in the distance have trees out front. I would not fly from that height in that area but that's me, I have had enough failures to know better ;)

As soon as i saw the pic video from the main page I knew you were in a for a blasting by the community re safety...but putting that aside for a moment, I did enjoy the video and it does express a dream many of us have that flying robots will be capable of tasks like this (and much much more) in the future.

Warning: Your coffee may be hot... And falling...


Lol.  Entertaining, but a little too staged ;)

Christ sake can't someone enjoy a little fun without someone butting in with stupid non-exisistant safety issue! If the dam things are that unreliable they should be banned!  I think the odds of being hit by a car are a hell of a lot higher than having a hexacopter fall on your head! You need to get a life and quit whining!

Sorry but I am so sick of people whining about issues that have no significance in life. I can think of a hundred other dangerous issues you could be using to scare the public with...
