Here's a video from a few weeks ago when a friend and I went flying in an industrial park outside of Stockholm. Hope you guys like it. Cheers

Here's a video of a quick flight I did the other day. The location is Fårö, an island in the Baltic Sea outside of Sweden. The pillar-shaped lime stone rocks are a result of erosion during the ice age. An interesting fact for for some is that the Swedish director Ingmar Bergman lived on this island and made many of his movies there.

The rig is a custom tricopter with a 375 mm motor diameter and an OpenPilot controller. Check out the video info for the exact setup used.
