Wow, check out this cool Mr. T Flying Halloween Ghost. This contraption is guaranteed to put the scare into some kids in your neighborhood! Have a close look at the ghost above, those aren’t fancy shoulder pads, those are helicopter blades. With a bit of electronic magic this ghost can fly through the sky. 🙂

Thanks Michael.

“Mr. T is a built on a very simple aluminum frame. There are two Turnigy motors driving counter rotating propellers, that are able to move forward and back under the control of some old servos. The motors are powered by a pair of Turnigy Plush 18amp speed controllers. The KKMulticontroller (I ordered the PCB from them, soldered on the components and programmed the microcontroller with a SparkFun USBtiny.) sits in the middle between the props, while the battery hangs below. It’s important to balance the craft properly so it will fly straight (or straightish in this case.) That wire on the top is just to give the head its shape.”
