Doesn't look like any typical antenna. As I look at it more closely, I honestly do not believe that it is flying on it's own power. That wire on the top seriously looks like a tow line. Also the fact that you can not see any power source or flight controls.

If the reaper is powered by ducted fans, he could show the guys in the vid a above a thing or two about setup
If it is somehow heli controlled -I sure hate flying near people not to mention chasing them with my bird. Even if its a quad. Even if the reaper is being towed.
Nice trick though. Got a laugh out of it

The eyes would make perfect ducts for the fans.

Dont' see how it can be a quad. With all fabric, how would you keep the blades form chewing everything up. Also the angle at which it flies, doesn't compare to a quad flying which has to be angled forward.

I don't know how it would fly with a quad inside though. There has to be air coming into the tops of the rotors and the thrust coming from the rotors can't be blocked or lift would be dramatically affected. That looks like all that fabric would be blocking the thrust. I don't know. Pretty cool though. Maybe there is a helium bladder inside and directional thrust is coming from a small ducted fan that is moved thrust vector style?

You can see the tow line when it turns towards the camera at 9 seconds into the video. It helps if you have a high def monitor.

You can see it pretty good at 20 sec also, and a couple more places when you look closely.

Exactly what I was saying. That thing on the head is not an antenna, but a tow line. Also look at the angle that it flies. Does not fly like a quad.

Here around chicago a guy has a 4 foot tall flying witch on a broom. The top of the broomstick has a prop and the witch rides it with ther legs swinging loosely. Her cape is the wing like a paraglider.
