Watch a drone do backflips without spilling a single drop of soda

Drone Tricks Video

Over the past few months, we’ve seen a proliferation of increasingly compelling and downright cool video footage of drones showing up in odd locations and engaging in all sorts of crazy behavior: we’ve seen a drone get utterly demolished after crashing into a jet ski in mid-air, we’ve seen a drone pull off absolutely incredible aerial maneuvers and we’ve even seen a drone equipped with a flamethrower cook a turkey.

The most recent addition to this ever-growing list of drone videos come to us via which managed to inject a bit of Physics education into their awesome drone video. As you can see below, the video begins with a cup of orange soda being placed atop of a drone. Impressively, the drone manages to take off while simultaneously maintaining its balance and orientation in such a way as to not have the cup of soda go tumbling towards the ground.

But wait, it gets even better.

Shortly after take-off, we see the drone do a number of flips mid-air, with not one ounce of orange soda spilling to the ground. All hail Physics! Centripetal force is taking care of business.

According to a thread on Reddit, the video was recently filmed at a drone convention in Norway.

Our lone complaint is that the video has a few too many quick cuts. It’d be nice to see the flip take place in one continuous shot. Either way, it’s clear that the drone era really is upon us.
