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!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

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.
