    Default Quadcopter video of an an erupting volcano

    Hello,

    With the interest in quadcopters at FLEM, this may be cool to some:

    I'm surprised the copter wasn't brought down by some of those blasts!

    Don't think I'd be willing to risk a bird that expensive on an active volcano...

    That was amazing! I would never risk one of my ships like that.

    I read that he attempted this with another quadcopter the Blade 350, and the volcano ate it.

    Probably melted - lots of plastic.
    That's why I haven't flown mine yet.

    (OK, not really - but it sounds like a cool excuse...)
