Had two nice big crashes today with my Blade 180QX. Fortunately, I caught them both on video. Unfortunately, the second broke two propeller arms, so I’m out of commission till replacements come in.

Here’s video of the first crash.

And here’s the second, more spectacular one.



In prep for an upcoming project (and because it’s ridiculously fun), I bought a Blade 180QX multicopter. It’s very easy to fly for someone like me who has no experience, and it comes with a nice camera (although not with the required micro SD card).

I shot this video this evening from Boise’s North End, taking off from North Junior High. I got a nice shot of the foothills, downtown, and the capital building. Be warned: the propellers are really loud.
