I feel the raw footage video is the best when it was viewing everything in forward motion as opposed to the final version being run backwards.   But that's just me. 8)

How many Transport Canada/MAAC rules did he break... if it were north of the border.

Amazing technology.

Actually this quad looks like under 250 gr. so no rules were broken!!

re: "...no rules were broken!!"

...but...given enough velocity, cardboard can be made to puncture steel.

Mass x velocity=trouble.  These small quads are starting to hit phenomenal speeds. :o

No question about that Frank. I just said it was legal, I never said anything about safe!!
Although not much can be considered safe these days!
Even an apprentice that goes dead stick can be dangerous if it lands on someone's face  ;D

Stephan,

We are on the same page. 8)  If something has no risk it can't be fun. ;)

What always worries me about these videos is that anything handled by an expert looks so easy.  We all know the amount of destruction required to achieve that level of ability.
