    She'll be out tonight, I have some "props" to experiment with...I think total weight under 6 ounces with 50' of kite string to start. I'm thinking of using my channel 7 tilt to release the creeper for landing. Some LED lights or glow sticks could be effective too! ;)

    Pretty cool. I'd like to make a silver UFO out of my Phantom. Kinda like this

    Anyone know where I can get a foam UFO like this that's atleast 3' wide? Or maybe just where I can get a 3' foam ball and I can shave it to shape.

    The guy has a video on the making of his video. It is just a plastic ghoul from a Halloween store, but it is a friend's big professional octocopter that is flying the grim reaper. I believe he says the drone has a 30 lb payload capacity.
