Welcome to some weekend fun and entertainment with drones. We spend a lot of time scouring the web for news, information and more on all the great drones around the globe. In our travels, we encounter some fun and funny stuff, and we want to start sharing that with you. Today we will be taking a look at unique, home-build drones that are not your normal quadcopter design, you might even call them odd drones.
No matter what the title says, we refer to this as our Good Idea / Bad Idea series, we just figured a new name was in order, suggestions welcome. Let it be known that we do not endorse or recommend anything we will post here, sort of a “do not try this at home” vibe, but somebody tried it, it was interesting or funny and here it is.
Next up in our series, let’s explore some fun with drones that aren’t ordinary at all.
Before we begin, let’s get a few things out of the way:
Drone legal and safety
This video comes from a Freefly employee showcasing his love of drones and tinkering with electronics. Daniel has essentially created a flying stick (aka bicopter) using spare parts from around the office.
This video comes from Bd stupidscience, it shows how to make a tricopter out of household materials. It goes to show that it doesn’t take much to build a drone that is flyable.
Good idea / bad idea wrap up
As always, we officially recommend you do not try this at home. We want you to always fly safe, to obey all drone laws, but also to have some fun. Of course, if you do try this, please share the details, it’s always fun to see some shenanigans.
If you think this entire series is a bad idea, let us know in the comments below. Otherwise, enjoy the crazy antics caught on film.
