    It sucks. I don't want everybody watching me when I'm sitting on my closet.

    An important must see. I was just wondering why PBS decided to make infomercial-propaganda for the Military Industrial Complex.

    I just watched that PBS video. I wouldn't call it propaganda. They showed the evil side of drones--lack of human intelligence, domestic spying, constitutional rights protest, inexperienced pilots and accidental deaths.

    These damned things are evolving way too quickly and being deployed way too rapidly. I had to provide my drivers license yesterday to buy cough syrup for my daughter.

    What plans are in place to stop suspected attacks by Japanese monsters?

    I fly a quadcopter and sometimes take videos from it. It's a fun hobby and I hope to make some impressive videos eventually. There are already FAA limitations to flight, such as an altitude rule and distance from airports. I could see that there should be some privacy rules regarding filming too, but it seems that this "new" thing scares some people. I just consider it an extension of my video tools. Here's one of my videos;

    Needs more Wagner. :) I guess it becomes an issue when flying them in suburbia, over your fence into your neighbor's yard, to watch the hot wife (who always makes you cookies every Christmas) as she lounges poolside. Where did you get yours?

    Jeff: you ever fly that thing around Hemet, CA?
  21. Jeff Jacobsen Member

    No, I'm up in South Dakota now. And I would be afraid to crash it on their property if I did. Would be fun though :)

    Mine has the arduino controller, but I'd rather have the Naza, which is more stable (since I wanted it for photography). The controller sends more or less juice to each motor, which is how it changes direction. Pretty simple in a way, but it does take a while to learn to fly it. My friend who's flown r/c helicopters for a long time took to this immediately.

    Nice. I was looking at kits two weeks ago. Would definitely want to build my own micro quad—even if just to terrorize my dogs in the house.

    Stay away from Parrot. It's not bad for the low end and there some excellent modders, but the company is total crap when it comes to admitting to and fixing problems.

    170+bucks! You can get a copter that is carbon fibre chassis an shit for $60 something and pick up a tiny USB camera that weighs nothing to strap to it and have a bunch of fun for a lot less.

    Tiny like that with all the controllers and receiver? Linkies?

    I didn't think I was? I was asking Jeff about his quad and it's controllers. I do appreciate your input, though. :)
