DSLR video + RC helicopter = awesome

Man, is it a great time to be alive or what? I can’t tell you how badly I wanted a radio-controlled helicopter as a kid. I think I would have sold myself into slavery to get something like this rig:

    For the really exciting footage, we need to get the Canon 5D strapped to one of those UPenn QuadCopters

    It’s amazing is a computer stabilized, electric helicopter is a $50 toy at the mall now. We had to make do with the Vertibird

    “Man, is it a great time to be alive or what?”

    couldn’t agree more with that statement, with such software tools as garageband, amplitube and some incredible r/c vehicles (i have 2 emaxx trucks) in every shape and form, it is a great time..all i have to do is find time for all of them…

    These things are so cool. I wish they were around when I was a kid. I will have to wait till I have a son so I can get him one of these.
