Whooping Mothra and Friends at Maker Faire


Got the chance to fly my Tiny Whoop around this awesome metalwork sculpture at Maker Faire. I had no idea it made so much noise and spewed fire until after I whooped it. I thought about trying for some smaller holes, but I didn't want my whoop to fall inside of it, as I didn't know how easy/hard it would be to get it back if it did. Also sorry about the video quality, I should have setup my base station in a better spot.

Also, my apologies to the artist for not remembering the actual names of each sculpture.
