Watch this: quadrocopters perform amazing pole-catching acrobatics

Quadrocopters can do more than take part in elaborate dances — they’re making the jump into gymnastics. Dario Brescianini, a student at ETH Zurich’s Institute for Dynamic Systems and Controls, has programmed the mini-drones to perform stunts and juggle poles between themselves. It all takes place in ETH Zurich’s Flying Machine Arena, a space decked out with a motion capture system and wireless networking to provide the perfect testing ground for tiny airborne vehicles.
