First Person View Remote Control Plane

I've just come across this that I thought I'd show you. It's video footage from a remote controlled plane some guy has built with a tiny camera in it. Cameras in remote controlled planes is nothing new - this one's quite funky though - the 'pilot' wears a head set which shows the live video feed and that has a gyroscopic angualar sensor. The sensor relays back to the camera which way the pilot is poining and move the camera accordingly...

OK... that was quite a crap description. Press "Play" and all will come clearer - as for if you think it's as cool as I thought, well that's up to you!
