    This is a video from the Royal Burgers' Zoo in the Netherlands of a chimpanzee knocking a quadrocopter out of the sky with a long stick. It proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that chimps are infinitely more coordinated than I am. I still brag about that one time I killed a fly... / Continue →

    From Youtuber Olivier C (who also brought us the R/C Millennium Falcon and TIE Interceptor quadrocopters -- but NOT the speeder bike one) comes this Star Destroyer quadrocopter. It looks legit. Want to place bets on what Star Wars ship he'll make next? $50 says he makes Boba... / Continue →

    Drone hobbyist Chris Anderson taught a group of 14-year old boys how to program a drone's movement using the Tower flight control app, and they immediately ran out and drew this penis. I can't say that I'm surprised, I would have done the exact same thing. Except PHOTOREALIST... / Continue →

    This is a video of the impressive TIE Interceptor quadrocopter built by Youtuber Olivier C, who also made that Millennium Falcon quadrocopter. Clearly this guy has a thing for Star Wars and quadrocopters. So, if you were ever looking for somebody to make you a custom Star War... / Continue →

    These are a couple videos of a homemade R/C Millennium Falcon quadrocopter. It is most impressive, especially the LED light effects in the back -- that was a nice touch. Plus if you squint your eyes and shake your head a little while you watch the videos you can almost convin... / Continue →

    This is a video of a quadrocopter with two Roman candles attached shooting at some guy wearing a crash helmet. He gets hit several times. He also screams like a sissy. Seriously? They're just Roman candles -- how many times have you ever heard of somebody getting hurt by a R... / Continue →

    A TGI Friday's patron in New York got an unsuspected surprise after a drone carrying mistletoe (intended to encourage restaurant goers to kiss) hit her in the face and cut her nose. Hey -- still better than losing an eye. Unless you want to be a pirate, in which case rocking ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a hawk attacking a quadrocopter and crashing it. It brought me great joy -- like watching a frienemy fail to achieve. I'm just happy to know that when the time comes, I can count on the support of my avian friends to help keep the skies free of autono... / Continue →

    So apparently a drone crashed with a payload of drugs, cell phones and cigarettes while attempting to be flown into the maximum security Lee Correctional Institution in Bishopville, South Carolina. No word if a group of LARPers found the wreckage while playing a round of Rescu... / Continue →

    The AirDog is a GoPro toting quadrocopter drone that uses a body-mounted tracking device to follow you around and film whatever the hell you're doing. Which is probably some EXTREME SPORT. Or getting hit in the head with a quadrocopter. The drones are currently a Kickstarter... / Continue →

    This is the R/C quadrocopter outfitted with a custom glowing eyes ghost costume built by Alton Porter to scare trick-or-treaters this year (previously: this less impressive one). That would probably work on me. I'm not that afraid of people because I'm a really quick shooter/... / Continue →

    This is a beautiful quadrocopter tour of Bodie, California. In the late 1800's and early 1900's Bodie was a prosperous gold-mining town. By the 1940's it was a ghost town. Will business ever pick back up? It's unlikely. Will my mom ever remember to pick me back up from sch... / Continue →

    This is some beautiful footage of Niagara Falls shot with a GoPro camera mounted to a DJI Innovations Phantom quadrocopter. It's really awe inspiring. You know, a lot of the time it seems like Mother Nature is just out to kill us all, but then a video like this comes along an... / Continue →

    This is a video of a mind-controlled quadcopter being piloted through a balloon obstacle course. Impressive, but I'd like to see somebody try to fly it by me while I'm swinging a broom handle. University of Minnesota biomedical engineering professor Bin He has been working on... / Continue →

    Because what better way to start a Monday than with some weird/depressing news, Dutch artist Bart Jansen had his cat Orville (after the Wright brother) taxidermied and turned into a flying quadrocopter after it was hit by a car. You know, because that's how you show respect fo... / Continue →
