    This is some quadrocopter footage of a tornado in Hutchinson, Kansas. It's crazy how the sun is still shining so bright on one side, and the other side looks like beginning of the apocalypse. Also, when I heard 'drone footage of a tornado', I thought it would actually be a li... / Continue →

    This is the larger than full-scale R2-D2 quadrocopter built by Otto Dieffenbach (who also made that awesome Snoopy one) to show off at San Diego Comic-Con, which apparently started today and doesn't start July 30th like I thought, which explains why it was so easy to book a che... / Continue →

    This is a video of the quadrocopter built by Otto Dieffenbach to resemble Snoopy and his flying doghouse. He did a great job. Snoopy's head even turns from side to side for ADDED REALISM. Apparently the quadrocopter was built to promote both San Diego Comic-Con and the upcom... / Continue →

    This is a video of a portly drunk man swatting a $1,350 DJI Phantom 3 quadrocopter out of the sky and breaking its 4K camera and three of its props. Apparently the man, who is a neighbor of the folks filming, told them if he flew it over his house he was going to be pissed off... / Continue →

    This is the Incom T-70 X-Wing quadrocopter built by Star Wars fan and French quadrocopter hobbyist Olivier C (previously: a TIE Interceptor and Millennium Falcon). Does everybody already own a quadrocopter by now? I still don't have one. Do you have one? Can I play with you... / Continue →

    This is a video of a quadrocopter with roman candles attached chasing after two dudes in the snow (previously: this version). The screencap above was taken right before red shorts takes a direct hit to the back. Obviously, they encourage you to not try this at home. Obviousl... / Continue →

    "Hey McFly you bojo, those boards don't work on water!" "Unless you've got POWER!" This is a video of Catalina Alexandru Duru traveling 275.9 meters (905-feet, 2 inches) on a hoverboard. Except not the kind of hoverboard you imagined, this is more like a quadrocopter you can ... / Continue →

    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 →
