Prom Quadcopter

Hey guys,

My friend is going to ask this girl to prom and wants me to fly my quadcopter up with a sign saying "Prom?"

He's also wondering if I could somehow get roses to drop down or get handed to him.

I was thinking a servo to drop the roses... or just the tilt mechanism from my gimbal. The simplest way may be to just have a long string tied to a basket with the roses in them.

Do you guys have any good ideas? He's going to be asking Thursday so I want something this quick to setup and reliable.

SAFETY is also my #1 concern. I don't anyone getting cut up from this "happy" time.

Thanks.

last Thursday we sent in the first pitch of the day at a Minor League baseball game at the somerset patriots stadium in Bridgewater N.J. using the bottom half of a drinking cup mounted to the camera gimbal on our octocopter...It is much easier to just dump it off the gimbal....
