I did, no criticism meant. I enjoyed the video. Are you saying I wasn't modern 20 years ago? :-)

@Darrel None here either and what you accomplished back then was revolutuonary. By modern I meant recent. The "drone" phenomena. Most hobbyist drone flyers dont even know what AP stands for :( Love that set up by the way, great pic.

Parrot's AR Drone in 2010 was the first consumer drone to be released. It has most of the technology that we use today, including the 6DOF sensors, ultra sonic altimeters, lipo bat, and brushless motors. It runs on a linux controller, with a wifi hotspot to your phone. 

It's funny, they were way ahead of everyone else, and never became more then a toy. I guess DJI had a better vision of the future.
