Robot Quadrotors Perform James Bond Theme

Robot Quadrotors Perform James Bond Theme

I came across this clip & made the University of Pennsylvania which is similar to the Rockstar Drones clip below, but also has a Making of video.

Watch this clip, then view the video on how it was made. It's a shame they don't go into details about how they control the Quads's

Pilot landing at an inland airport of Queenstown

Pilot landing at an inland airport of Queenstown 

A pilot landing at the inland airport of Queenstown, New Zealand, recently put a GoPro camera in his cockpit, recorded in stunning HD the last minutes of his flight, and posted it on YouTube. The video, shows the plane skirting sunlit mountain peaks and forbidding valleys and piercing a thick blanket of clouds above the runway.

The landing would be all but impossible if the pilot were not relying on a digital GPS-based navigation system, called Required Navigation Performance (RNP), first designed by an Alaska Airlines pilot.

Inside the Cockpit of a Typhoon Jet

Inside the Cockpit of a Typhoon Jet

Top Gun fuelled a generation of wannabe fighter pilots, but the film was the closest many of us will ever come to taking to the skies in a jet - until now.

An amazing and somewhat nausea-inducing video has been filmed on board an RAF Typhoon jet that reveals exactly what it’s like to sit onboard a supersonic fighter plane.

During the six-minute virtual trip, the pilot is shown flipping upside down as he soars across the Lake District and Welsh valleys in the UK between 250ft and 40,000ft.


Rockstar Drones

Rockstar Drones

KMel Robotics presents a team of flying robots that have taken up new instruments to play some fresh songs. The hexrotors create music in ways never seen before, like playing a custom single string guitar hooked up to an electric guitar amp. Drums are hit using a deconstructed piano action. And there are bells. Lots of bells.

A 380 Airliner the world first very large flying RC model of this type

A 380 Airliner the world first very large flying RC model of this type

This A 380 RC Model with 4 operating jet turbines, built to Airbus drawings, flew for the first time 2 years before the original Passenger plane.

This video documents the Safety tests taken before the 65 kg model was safety certified to fly.

Following this the successful maiden flight was observed and the full German licence for models more than 25 kg was given.
The wing span is app 5.8 meter.
The builder / pilot is Peter Michel from Germany. At that time he had successful built and flown many Passenger Airliner Models.
