Don't usually upload a lot of flights but I had been dreaming of this one for a while so I wanted to share.  Enjoy!

Great flight and great skills ! What kind of material are you using ? Is that a GoPro 3 ?

Comment by LanMark on March 6, 2013 at 8:35am

very nice.. what are you running? fpv? 5.8?

ballsy move with the ferris wheel, I think we would all like the know more about your setup.

Very cool video! But if he was a really good pilot, he'd try that with the wheel spinning, right? Only kidding, of course...

Ok.  That was impressive.  Please share with us your odds of hitting a rotor on that ferris wheel.  Especially in an area where you would not have been able to recover the multirotor.  And please provide hardware details.  My FPV skills suddenly feel very substandard!  :)

Wow very skilful , well done we all envy your skills. I too have a landmark I want to fly around but I am not skilful enough to do it justice, but soon I will be :-)

One of the best videos I've seen!! Great control, smooth footage, just fantastic!

Awesome video!

Anyone have any issues with flying near salt water and rust? I live in an extremely corrosive environment near Micronesia and am wondering what is going to rust first on a 3dr arducopter? Suggestions on sealing stuff up?

if you can store it in a dry environment then you probably are fine.. since the exposure to the elements would be limited to your flight times.  But good question though.. motor wires are coated.. but the outer housing/bell of the motor could rust maybe... seems like most things are coated to prevent that sort of reaction to the elements.

wow.. never heard of Micronesia (sorry).. nice little geography lesson for me.  Yeah I could see how you might have some harsh conditions.
