Quads at Olympics opening ceremony
« on: February 10, 2018, 17:56:05 »
Did anyone see the opening ceremony of the Olympics? Did you see the Snowboarder and Olympic rings in the air. They were created by 1218 quads!!!!!!

More info: https://www.wired.com/story/olympics-opening-ceremony-drone-show/
All 1218 controlled via computers not with each other, they all have gps and 20min flight time.
Looked very cool, even cooler once I found out it was quads  ::)

I just got a silly image in my head of 1200 random people being asked to stand there and frantically waggle the sticks on X9D's that are being handed out, while an intel rep's loudly trying to convince a group of police officers that they "Really ARE all being flown line of sight........ Honest".  :whistling:
I need a pay rise........ Though I'd settle for a reduction in the amount of hours I need to work to get the same money.
