That looks mega, can you get live video back? Would be nice to have it hovering round at shows, see how big the queue is for Combe for example

As said, same as any other RC plane/helicopter ie: Use your legs!


Or, if you wanted to be technical then you could track it using a wireless card with a directional antenna and software like inssider (this is obviously on the basis that the drone still has power and is transmitting).

Controlled via an iPhone or iPad?

Do you not own a sub standard mobile phone? how do you plan on using this to its full capabilities?

I reckon this would be a good way for farmers to check round their sheep at lambing time

My indoor rc helicopter got boring really quick. Fly upstairs. Scare the dog. Land on a small surface. Put it in the cupboard.

I had a 20quid indoor helicopter thing and the novelty lasted months. I can see something like this being timeless tbh

Will it fly to a point automatically? Following the car would be fairly special if you can update where its due to go to.

Where are all the houses?

You need to turn off the youtube video stabilizer. Looks like it was filmed under water.
