Flying People in New York City!!

Greg Tanous and I were talking last week about his RC design the RCSuperHero. On Sunday he sent me an email and told me to keep an eye out for a video that was about to come out on YouTube. That was 2 million views ago! The SuperHero video was released as a form of viral marketing for the new move Chronicle and it looks like it worked! Congrats Greg and here is the video:

I'm pretty sure they are on here somewhere, I think on the same thread as the surfer guy. I'll look later.

These are cool by themselves, but with three at a time that is just way cool.

Flying for commercial gain, surely against the AMA rules, I think people better be careful what they wish for as they receive payment for flying at shows etc and the AMA non payment position is so clearly defined now.

Senate joins House in passing FAA bill, exemption for aeromodeling

There are going to be some clear definitions created soon for UAS flight.

It was a clever idea though and has worked well.

A can of coke or a meal would would have been valuable consideration.
