Halloween Multicopter Fancy Dress Competition

I've decided to have a multicopter fancy dress competition for Halloween. Every year I keep telling myself that I'm going to turn a multicopter into something scary to scare the local kids, but I've never gotten around to doing it. This year I am definitely going come up with something and am hoping that others will join me.

More details of the competition here: http://drone-pilot.blogspot.fr/

I'll throw in 4 eRC Rapid Drive Speed Controllers into the prize mix. Sounds like a fun competition. I know the lighted flying skull and cape from last year was pretty impressive. Looking forward to see what everyone comes up with.

I think that I'm going to turn my hexacopter into a furry monster with spooky red LED eyes. I just need to clear it with my daughter to cut up a teddy bear to get the fur.

I've just started trying to build my Halloween copter. Just gathering a few materials together and trying to come up with some ideas.

I made a bit more progress on mine. It's a bit cheesy, but I'm sure the kids will enjoy it.

The copter that it's going on already has lights, but I might try and do something for the eyes.

At the moment I'm trying to find some material to cover the arms to make it look more spider like.

you could get some black pipe cleaner things and bundle them together to make legs...like wrap it around the first half of the arm and then bend them down so they look like spider legs...

I'm going to add a lost model tracker from FMKit to the prize fund. I hope that people are busy building and am really looking forward to seeing what people come up with.
