Thanksgiving turkey quadcopter shenanigans

The challenge: can you build a flying turkey that drops pumpkin pie bombs? That’s the question that Utah Aerials asked themselves and they did manage to make it happen. Of course they’re not starting from scratch, but adding a little holiday cheer to an existing quadcopter in the form of a spray painted turkey fuselage. The cheapest pumpkin pie they could find was hung from the copter with care, and dumped thanks to a servo motor. Check the video after the break to see if they were able to hit their balding-bullseye or not.

Seems like the wicked witch music should have been the background for that video.

    As god is my witness I thought turkeys could fly…

    Turkeys can’t fly. Arthur Carlson proved it.

    I just loved the flying ghost for haloween, but this turkey was useless. Sorry… It would be cool if looked like a turkey (not like a quadcopter), sounded like a turkey and moved like a turkey. (not like a quadcopter)

    @Steve You are corret. While the domesticated turkeys often cannot fly, wild turkeys have no problems flying.

    well I know our turkeys can fly up to tops of trees, that is where the nest for the night, so nothing gets them.
