That has got to be the best quad video I've seen yet! 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.
