Quadcopter amazingness

With the cancellation of the Lucerne launch due to water on the lakebed I just realized I haven't flown since Plaster Blaster in November '13!!  That's a bummer, man.  I'm not slacking, however, and just took receipt of an amazing DJI Phantom I RC quadcopter with GoPro Hero camera mount:
I flew it in my local park yesterday and, despite my lack of RC experience, I don't think I did too badly although this is designed to fly very easily (watch in full-screen, 1080p HD and stoke out!): I'll definitely be shooting liftoffs from above with that combination if only I could find a high-power rocket launch...

I love how afraid everyone is of drones when rc choppers have been around forever. Huge threat, we're all homing to die!
