Quadcopter Fall Colors

I decided to expand my R/C hobby into quadcopters -- that is, I ordered parts and scratch built my own. The frame is an impressive 2.2 pounds with four 11" propellers. After tuning for a while, I finally got brave and mounted my old Creative Vado camera to the front and took it for a test flight. The results were stunning. (Turn your volume down if you don't want to hear prop-noise.)

Unfortunately, my luck did not prevail and on a follow-up flight a couple of days later, I crashed hard into the sidewalk. After rebuilding the frame, I'm still tuning and plan to upgrade the firmware on the controller board before I get brave again. Patience. Perseverance.
