If You Find Aliens, Who Do You Call?

Let’s say your house is on fire, or overrun by a gang of psychotic raccoons. You don’t hesitate—you take out your phone, and you call the fire department, or animal control, and then firemen/raccoon-wranglers are promptly dispatched to your home.

The hefty, eight-armed Freefly Alta drone is capable of carrying a lot of weight. So in addition to a camera, the folks at YouTube’s rctestflight channel put 1,000-watts of LEDs on board, and a smoke machine, unintentionally creating the perfect way to fake an alien encounter, or a UFO abduction.
