Short clip of recent DIY Drones Fly-in

Chris needed to do some prep for the upcoming SparkFun Challenge, so he asked if anybody wanted to get together for a Memorial Day fly-in.  I drove up with Andreas and Charlie Burtoff; there were about 15-20(?) people all together, although I didn't actually count.

Here's a shakycam of Andreas flying the Zii, a hex, some of the flyers, and Andreas with his fine-looking FPV mask.

  1. That is just so cool! Drones have actually been intended to be used for military surveillance, but it is so nice to see how modern-day geniuses have been able to customize drones into something fun and more of a hobby. I think it is okay to use those drones as long as they are not used to invade some other people’s privacy. :)
