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.

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.
