RC aircraft + onboard camera + virtual reality

Anyone here in to RC? Take a look at the video below, it's very impressive. They guy actually attached a camera to a gimbal in an RC aircraft, slaved to a virtual reality helmet on the ground so he can look around while flying. VERY neat idea.

That is increndible, I am not into RC stuff, but am massivly into flying, i love it and really want one of those things!!!!! I am suprised all that gear didnt effect the handling of the plane, but I guess with me not being into RC stuff i cant comprehend how light they are

Awesome man, exploring areas where you are not allowed to go Wink

Wow, I love the idea... must have been good at electronics to wire that thing up though.

That is about as cool as they can get, you'd hate to go out of range though Razz

If a company started manufacturing lots of those things and mass sold those Smile Lots of $$ for them, lots of fun for us.

EDIT: He should do a close fly-by to traffic - maybe several times - and just see how everyone reacts.

I was thinking more like put the camera on a helicopter and go round to people house's. Of course you could use it for perving (and that would make you a creep), but the intimidation factor would be through the roof. Just imagine some guy that owes you money, send a message to him.

While we're at it:

That has a gun on it, but its controlled by AI or something boring like that. Overkill if you ask me.

Wow, thats pretty cool :O!

That is a truly amazing video. I think that it is much cooler to maneuver that thing around then to try to maneuver one of the large people planes. If a company mass manufactured that there would be huge profits.

Omg what would happen if i get something like that Very Happy
