said by Gone:
Tell me, when have you ever built something so elaborate or - dare I say - so cool?
You mean bought off the shelf parts and assembled as such?
Gone, not trying to bash his technical skill set but hardly something new or original, there are many quad-copters out there and this was more of an assembly project. I would have been impressed if he actually designed it and made it himself, all of it; in short he built a Heath-Kit.
My point, I am just disgusted that he would rather sit at home then spend time with his kid. Hell that project it would have made a good Father-Son project, a teaching experience as well as bonding experience.
In short he should be less of a child himself and be a parent a bit more.
