Love it!

I wanna do this so bad, but not sure I have enough time to pull it off.

Come On Rob, Sleep when you're dead!

THIS is a childs' worst nightmare! Well done! I thought about using some screen cut into a circle strapped to the arms and some dimable LED's to make my quadcopters glow. The idea would be to have two of them in the air, turn one on low, go to full brightness, then make it "disappear." Meanwhile, the second one is ~100 feet down the line, and the lights go on, making it "Teleport" across the fields by leapfrogging them ;) I scare enough people as it is, who think it's a UFO with my running lights on the arms, I'd imagine some very frightened people!

Child's worst nightmare, Heck that will scare the crap out of most people. You should give it a test flight in a graveyard.

Wessie, I'm already burning the candle at both ends...

Oh man, graveyard, *not* on Halloween night, I'm sure you could completely freak somebody out.

Would also be cool to make more of a "Dementor" looking thing that is barely visible.

Hahaha I love it!!!!  Now all you need is a Rover dressed up as something! :)

I think i'll do the same sort of thing with my y6, but extend an arm between the front two to hold the ghost out in front so the copter is hidden behind, and extend the back arm and put the battery back there for balance.

seems like the quad could just have a fishing line sort of connection where the ghost is below... to keep things simple.. then you probably could get a Dementor sort of thing going on.

Yeah, i was thinking that's gonna be the easiest route.  I think i'll do that.  Doing a demo at the airforce museum saturday.  I'll post pictures.

Best use of a Quadcopter yet.
