Carpenter Builds Wooden Quadcopters
In this short video produced by New York's Binghamton University, school carpenter Jim Johnson talks about his newfound passion for building and flying wooden quadcopters around campus. What's cool about these quadcopters isn't just that they're made in his woodshop, but that Johnson flies them using a mounted Go-Pro and first-person control rig. In the video, you can see Johnson sitting on a bench wearing a head-mounted display for seeing what his copter sees, and a homemade radio transceiver next to him. Definitely got a little bit of a Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson) vibe from this guy!
