Here's New Year's video taken with a RC helicopter high over the hills surrounding the Pepperdine University campus. In the foreground are the hills above Pepperdine and the campus itself. In the background is the Pacific Ocean and Malibu Lagoon.
I took the video with a UDI U13A helicopter (affiliate link):
The video quality is not outstanding, but the helicopter flies well and is very resilient. I've enjoyed it so much I bought a second one (after the first met an untimely demise in a free fall from 400 feet).
If you are shivering in the northeast right now filling out your law school applications, you might want to take a close look.It was near 80 degrees today at Pepperdine, with a warm breeze gently swaying the palms outside the law school. There's no reason why you need to study Contracts in a miserable arctic tundra!
Disclaimer: If you are prone to motion sickness, you may wish to take some Dramamine before watching this video.
Also, you should know that one RC helicopter and one law professor were slightly harmed during the filming of this video. Here is a video of helicopter harm.
