These Drones and multicopters are dressed up and ready to trick or treat! via Make
Drones, or more properly “multicopters,” can be lots of fun. They are entertaining when flown in a traditional manner, but when dressed up (or towing) a halloween prop, things get much crazier. Check out these… drones in action creeping the neighbors out!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

Great ideas shared there! Haha, I liked how it followed cars like real stalker!
I also had a great idea to mask my quadcopter as an UFO. In that way you can get people off-guard. Besides that I have seen one guy once create a pumpkin and put it around the body of his drone. Now that did not look like flying pumpkin because of the rotors around, but it sure was an amazing idea. In case you are also the owner of this drone creature, did you try to also fly this drone to evening halloween parties? In this way it gives more meaning and makes everything more questionable.
Also the quadcopters needed to be used for such creature are not microcopters. I have a hard time believing these videos were taped on a microcopter. It is hard to attach the costume on small quadcopters and usually the propellers are not that far away from each other.
