File under “don’t try this at home”…
Strapping roman candles to a FPV Quadcopter and filming it while firing off potshots at your buddies seems like an automatic qualifier for a future Darwin Award, but it also makes for great junior-high humor. Capturing both the offensive and defensive perspective, all that’s missing is Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries.
This video is a few months old but seems to just be gaining traction online. And while we’ve seen unmanned aerial vehicles flown through fireworks, this is the first time we’ve seen one actually shooting the fireworks.
The video also has some ominous undertones as weaponized drones are certainly nothing new, although usually not this harmless.
While we’re guessing it’s gotta be illegal to do this in some way, we’re glad someone did it. In this case, according to the YouTube post, it was “Canadians after a few at the cottage.”
