    Aerial Video of NYC, Taken With an RC Aircraft

    Okay, not the usual kind of aviation video - but I still like it a lot. It was posted over at our forum, and I thought that you guys might be interested in this.



    HD version / 720p available.

    WOW!!! I am stunned! This is AWESOME!!!!
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    Wow, very cool and as Highheels mentioned, the range on that R/C must be heavyduty!
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    Well they do thanks NYPD, TSA and Park Rangers. I could see Homeland Security being interested in this considering how close they came to a number of landmarks.

    cool video but i've gotta say it's one of the stupidest ideas i've seen in some time. the harbor and rovers are home to a lot of uncontrolled flying and i personally would not like to get a errant RC airplane through my windscreen!

    @mario wouldn't doubt that the technology on that airplane is similar to some of the UAVs in use in Iraq right now.
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.
