Bowling with drones 3/13/2021

Mike Ives for The New York Times:

A drone flies into a bar, swoops through an adjacent bowling alley and crashes into the pins.

The drone’s operator, who shot the 87-second video in a Minneapolis bowling alley last week to rally support for the business, didn’t expect it to be viewed hundreds of thousands of times on social media, or to win high praise from Hollywood directors.

But it was and it did.

It’s a great video; this pilot makes an outstanding flight through the bowling alley — but definitely needs to work on the landing. I love FPS drones and have been wanting to build my own for years. I’m glad to see this is getting the attention it deserves.
