Here's a Drone Flying Between Two Tesla Coils

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you sent a metal-cage-enclosed quadrotor soaring between two Tesla coils? Of course you have. And here lies your answer in all its highly dangerous, lightning-spewing, nightmare-inducing glory.


Details on what's happening are sparse. Who are these men? Why did they set out to recast Powder with drones? And can they do it without the cage next time, please? We may never know the full story, but that's okay. For it remains awesome. [Live Leak via Digg]


It is NOT a drone. It is a radio-controlled model aircraft. This is a REALLY IMPORTANT distinction because the R/C hobby is increasingly under attack by ignorant state legislators because of the mis-perception that they are flying "drones" that spy on people or that might even carry weapons, when they are NOT.
