Through the generosity of The Dean we have three new toys: Parrot AR.Drone quadrocopters, which will be used for recruitment. The Dean issued a challenge: a hundred bucks to the first to fly. So while Southern Man was teaching his Friday morning lab the Finance Department rose to the challenge...
RS and JM fly their copter.
Southern Man was not far behind: after lab he broke his out and got it up in the air as well.
A little video from the 'copter of a few of Southern Man's programming lab students.

Sadly Southern Man managed to break a gear on his during a later flight so replacement parts are on order. Quadrocopters are fun!
