The quad looks nice and stable, but I must have my own test pilot:)

Is that a load bearing chicken.

That has got to be the best quad video I've seen yet! :D All the rest are boring vids of hovering quads. But yours...there's drama, suspense, action and of course humor. Thanks for the laugh.

I have added light to the quadrocopter for better visibility and orientation. White in front becouse that is easy since cars have white light in front, and the 3 other green. The light is 0.5m Hobbycity LED strips wrapped around the booms.
