Has has anyone been to the Grand Canyon. My parents are taking me there in a couple of months and i think that we are going to go on the Skywalk. Is it worth it? Oh and can you film with a quadcopter there?

While that would be awesome if done right. I believe the the national park service has outlawed RC Flight in the national parks.

I haven't been there since I was too young to remember, but I would definitely find somewhere else to fly: http://home.nps.gov/news/release.htm?id=1601

And I wholeheartedly agree with that stance. I don't want to be buzzed by a quad while I'm experiencing pristine nature.

Yeah, it's too bad for the morons...it's kind of like how more and more parks with hiking trails are not allowing dogs. If you have a well behaved dog it's not a big deal, but if your dog is a terror or barks the entire time it ruins the experience for everyone else. Ask me how I know after a backpacking trip to the Smoky Mountain area.
