It's taken some work to make it happen, but it's great fun,' he explained.'It flies with the help of a remote control helicopter but you rig it up in a really brilliant way. It has to be quiet so people don't hear it.'He added: 'Wherever there are people, we will go. We have since managed to make its eyes glow red and we are going to go out at night and scare people.'The best bit is when you sneak up on people. We fly it about 200ft in the air and then drop it down so it's right behind them.'A video of the puppet in action has racked up more than 150,000 hits on YouTube in less than 24 hours. http://metro.co.uk/2013/10/24/video-flying-grim-reaper-stars-in-epi c-h alloween-prank-4160011/
MelGoesOnTour: I totally cannot figure out how this could be a helicopter. I fly r/c and just can't figure out the logistics. Anyone have a theory?
