    I never thought it could be done...

    But there ya go.
    Perhaps their next experiment will have a better success story...

    Good find RedHotPoker!
    Love the Mythbusters. Leave it to Jamie Hyneman to put a circular saw on a drone.. LOL Good thing Adam wasn't involved. He'd a lost a finger or two. All those guys gotta do is have Kari Byron in any video for it to get millions of hits.;) She's the HOTTEST geek in the world! Sad to see them all leave Mythbusters.

    Kinda disappointed in Jamie.

    'Wind' and quad hover stability notwithstanding...

    Having a spining blade hanging down with no way to force it against the object means it (blade/shaft) would simply be flung off the object once it made contact with the toothed disc.

    Ever see a 2 x 4 or similar dropped on a running tablesaw?

    No real difference to his implementation.

    Luv the Guys anyways, saw them on tour in May.
    The four-barrel paint ball machine gun was awesome!
