    After seeing Tom Mabe's video of the flying reaper.. I tried the same thing with Freddie the skeleton.

    Works!!

    About six minutes battery life....
    Motors do get slightly hot :)
    Great way to make traffic stop in front of my house.

    To Do List

    Make string longer
    Find out some way to stabilize the spin
    Get hexacopter for more payload weight

    6 minutes is actually pretty decent when you consider most of us with gimbals get around that time (or less).
    that thing must be pretty light!!?

    It was very light... head and shoulders were styrofoam and the fabric as very thin.

    I hollowed out some of the foam to save weight.
