Inside Drones (Nov 2nd, 2016)

Drones are great for aerial photography, competitive racing and new business ventures — or they can just be a sweet new toy. Any recommendations for the holiday shopping season? Hit "Reply" and let us know.


Now that drone technology is easily accessible to the average consumer, we can finally answer that pressing question: dude, what would happen if we, like, dropped stuff from really high up?

YouTuber Corey and his friend Dylan from the Funk Bros channel, popular for stunts like wiping out on scooters and jumping onto trampolines from the roof, built a remote-control mechanism onto their drone that allowed it to carry and release small objects in midair. Then they rummaged through their houses and a local 99 Cent Store, went out to a parking lot and sent a bunch of random items plummeting toward the pavement. For science.

If you’ve ever been curious about the effects of gravity on a can of Coke, a parachuted action figure, a Monster energy drink, lemons, a cucumber, scissors, pudding snacks or an old iPhone, these guys have got you covered.

Laugh all you want, but the Funk Bros have almost 800,000 subscribers and this video got more than 300,000 views in three days.
