    Have you wanted to get great action video but either didn't want to spend thousands of dollars or be forced to use a subpar camera?

    Do you want to have the most badass Drone at an event or the Park?

    Great Lakes Raptor Excursions is now offering Quad/Hex Copter builds. Aerial Video Drones by GLRE are not the DJI Phantoms you see flying all over the park. All AV Drones built by GLRE will be flight tested and will come with everything needed and labeled except LiPo batteries and Lipo Charger. Each build will be custom built and fully customizable to the customer’s needs.

    Note these are not toys; the Quad/Hexcopter is capable of very high performance flight and lifting quite a bit of weight. (3-7 lbs in addition to the copter)

    Flight time will vary based on batteries selected. Expect between 7-15mins depending on mAh size

    Builds take 3-4 weeks depending on parts availability

    Can you program it to follow you around with a beer? Nobody likes a spilled beer and we all know joe gets a little loosey goosey.

    That would be pretty sweet when you stop your beer wouldn't be all shaken up from the off roading. Then the cool factor when your beer copter descends with a 12 pack.

    Good idea, those flame wheel's are some amazing machines. I use a Trex 700 myself just because it flys a little faster.

    The Flamewheels are great fly really easy and stable and there is quite the aftermarket for them.

    Aluminum arms, Mounts for Larger engines, or counter rotating setups, etc.

    Next step, auto take-off & return from a charging dock mounted on the roof or in the bed along with a button on the dash to make it take off and record some footage then return on a second press.

    This is interesting. I was thinking of picking up a quad for Havoc II. I didn't know there were so many interested people here.

    I can do the return to take off but someone has to control the take off as of now.

    With enough programming I can make it follow a source unit. ie your phone. The programming is the intensive part.

    Let me know, If we can finalize it/order soon I can have it build and delivered to you at Havoc saving on shipping.
