Video: Amazing RC 3D Ballet Viewed From Quad Copter - Awesome!

I was sent a tip by AirPigz fan 'Eric' about this incredible video that's on the Hobby-Lobby youtube account (the RC Superstore, not the craft store) - wow this is great stuff! There are two elements that make this video so awesome. First; it's a really slick view riding on a Quad Copter. You see the grass flutter when we first takeoff, and then as we mosey about the RC model flightline you get this interesting view moving around and over the activities. It has a little of a Terminator feel to it... small VTOL robot scanning around the environs.
 Then there's element #2, the really cool part. It's shot during a Profile Brotherhood event (ProBro) in Nashville recently. The ProBro is a gathering of flyers with predominantly profile fuselage models with very high power to weight ratios. These guys love to fly 3D. If you don't know, RC 3D flying is all about doing cool stuff while hanging on the prop. The extra special part of this video is that there is a boatload of these models all flying at once, and we're moving all around them with this awesome camera view. It's like a freaky cool ballet of aircraft hanging on their props, and we're right in the middle of it! It's a little hard to explain, but I found it to be stunning. Watch it now!
