Imagine you are a pilot coming in for a landing and that ghost or skeleton comes flying at you. But scaring people in the park is just so tempting ...

Maybe even spooking the windows at the retirement homes. Seeing if you can invoke early vacancies.

Can't find the article, but I've seen this one on weird facts -

In 1994, LA Police arrested a man for dressing as the Grim Reaper (complete with scythe) and standing outside the windows of old people's homes, staring in.

LOL I so need a better quadcopter. I just have a cheap $80 version and I doubt it could lift that weight. I have a perfect reaper too.

How much of that is a setup? Would people really run scared from something like that? Like....that it's really a ghost or demon? Is that kind of ancient belief so prevalent?


My only interest in getting away would be to avoid the quad's rapidly spinning blades, though a lot of those quads weren't moving terribly quickly in the first place.

Yeah, even the small ones have a distinctive motor whine due to having multiple motors & blades. Even if you flew it 100 feet up, you'd still hear it pretty clearly.

There was a link to a behind the scenes video on one of the Reaper videos where the guy said he had the hex at over 150'.

Ok....so there's still not much reason to run.


"The hell is that thing? Sure not a bird. RC helicopter or quadcopter maybe? With......oh, Halloween decorations on it. Ok then. Ahhhhhh....look at me running away. Oh no."



Oh well, still amusing. I think I'd prefer a Millennium Falcon though. :D
