Amazingly agile little flying machine~!!

Also, I think your work syncing the action up in-time with the music deserves praise, especially that little crashing montage! Really awesome work, friend :3

Oh~! Little question!! Whilst flying the quadcopter, are you able to see the live camera footage at all? Or are you manipulating it entirely from a ground-level vantage point?

I have a second camera below the GoPro at the same angle that's a repurposed security camera, that's transmitting at a lower resolution, but in real time. I'm wearing video goggles to see the feed, so I'm entirely flying in first person :P Here's a video of my smaller one, that's kinda the quality I'm getting live:

That's really cool

Do you get disoriented or dizzy at all? With all those movements I'm sure I wouldn't be able to take it...

I started out flying fixed wing aircrafts, and planes need some sort of forward momentum to stay in the air, so that kinda helped a little. I still faceplanted on my first flight because as I was descending, I was leaning more and more and more forward until I lost my balance :bungee:

But you get used to it... I prefer to sit while flying, some can even stand while doing that kind of stuff... it's all in your head :P
