Just a few days after Halloween, there is still time for a spooky project!
Though we are now a few days late for Halloween projects, this project is too cool to pass up! Michael from Utah Aerials created a remote control ghost that flies around his neighborhood, haunting pedestrians from the skies!
The project is based off of a KKMulticopter platform and a couple of powerful servo motors. Michael used our Pocket AVR Programmer to get his code onto the microcontroller. Then, Michael attached everything to a custom aluminum frame and added his ghostly exterior. The results are pretty dang cool!
Check out that video! SparkFun - helping people find new ways to frighten children since 2003. Nice work, Michael!
I love it!!!!
I love the video, although it was obviously staged. C?mon, scare some kids for real!
Also, it wasn?t the only flying ghost this year:
What camera did you use to capture the video?
That's awesome. Very clever. I might have to copy this for next year. At first I thought the noise would give it away, but I bet it could add to the creepy effect at night.
Very cool work! I've worked on quadrotors before, but I've never seen the 2-motor + servo arrangement before. How much time/money did it take to put this style of KKMulticopter together?
Throw some spooky lights on that bad boy!
