On the YouTubes: To slip the surly bonds of earth, and see the roof of the Macaroni Grill

Is there anything nerds RC enthusiasts can't do? Check out these exciting aerial videos of Reston, as videotaped from a remote-controlled airplane. Either that, or the DRB has decided to ditch its zeppelin for a slightly more fuel-efficient form of aerial enforcement:

Watch breathlessly as the RC plane hurtles along the parking lot towards the South Lakes Starbucks! Will it become airborne before it smashes into the window? SPOILER ALERT: Yes, it does.

Here an RC plane soars high over the Reston Town Center. SPOILER ALERT: You can totally see the roof of the Macaroni Grill!

Those first two videos both end with impressive landings. SPOILER ALERT: This one's got what you've been waiting for: a bitchin' crash into a lake. It's totally like NASCAR's in-car cams, only with better sound effects.


  1. I think I can see Hoyts tent !

  2. My house can be seen in the first video at 6:35, woohoo!
