Amazing! How exactly is that done? Is it a remote control plane underneath? It couldn't be a helicopter.

I want one! Can I have one?

Yes, yes it could be a helicopter.
Now where are the design plans?

How would you react if you saw the symbol of death heading in your direction?
Joggers and walkers in Louisville, Kentucky, were left running scared after a prankster spooked them with a remote-controlled skeleton.
With Halloween just around the corner, American joker Tom Mabe used his squawking Flying Reaper to swoop down and stalk his victims.
'We have had a lot of fun making this. 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.

Night time would be wickedly awesome. Have this thing swoop out of the pitch darkness of night, people already terrified by the glowing red eyes... only to see the ghoulish "reaper" take shape in a streetlight?

Yeah, that might make more than few people crap their pants.

While really cool I'm guessing there is a reason why they used those cheesy sound effects and not the real sound, because its probably as loud as a leaf blower while flying around and probably actually didn't scare anyone.

That being said I want one!

Long time fan of Tom Mabe, wish he would do more prank call stuff

Could be pretty silent if the reaper was suspended well below the helicopter itself.  Sure you lack micro control, but even better if something gets tied up with the damn thing.

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?

The cosmetics (skull and cloth) are probably very lightweight. Probably thin wires to keep the loose cloth bits from getting in the rotors? I assume this is a quad-rotor configuration, like most RC "drones"

Suspended from a line?

If all of the victims were so scared then why did they only look back once?  Not a one looked back after after starting to run.

It looked to me like they took some footage of a cool reaper prop swooping around on a cable and edited it over staged scenes of outdoor activity.

Because that dead head wasn't a sticker on a Cadillac.
