    :ugeek: Very cool video of a rocket launching then descending to the home point. Cool stuff all filmed with a multi rotor. Maybe future hobbyist will fly these too!

    I believe I remember reading that Colin Guinn himself flew the S800 that recorded that.

    Yeah that's the one I was thinking of, and I remember it coming up around the same time as all the other drama with DJI v Guinn, so the timing could be an "intentional coincidence"

    Thanks for the history lesson on that vid. I had never seen it nor did I know that Colin was involved. Guess I'll go crawl back under my rock now. :D

    That was pretty cool to watch. Great vantage point to film it from.
    A couple of points came to mind while watching. First, I was impressed that the sound from the rocket was able to overpower the noise coming from the props! :mrgreen:
    Second, which one will the FAA go after, the "drone" pilot or the rocket pilot because isn't 325 meters higher than 400 feet? :twisted:
