    Got a QuadCopter? Person flies into whitehouse

    Get ready for a firestorm of federal regulations now... Some idiot, probably drunk after 3 AM, loses control while flying it in front of the White House. Now we all have to pay.

    Questions about a QuadCopter abilities as a buisness tool

    I got a call from a friend who is in the same business as I with an idea to use a quad copter equipped with a high resolution camera (stills and video) to take images/video of the outside façade of high rise buildings that we inspect.

    Another Quadcopter Build

    Yes, another one, I have a problem, leave me alone. :D Actually, I just bought a new FPV specific frame (keeps the rotors out of the camera view) in the form of the Hoverthings Flip FPV to transfer my existing electronics over to.
