Those of y’all that attended this year’s Kinetic Sculpture Race may have been struck with a sense of paranoia due to the presence of a ominous aerial presence. Never fear, citizen. It was only Humboldt County quadcopter titan Chad Johnson capturing your image for the rest of time.

More importantly though, he captured this year’s glorious crop of racers at various stages of the race. Check out the pair of videos from day one of this year’s race below featuring action from the Arcata Bottoms and Dead Man’s Drop. More to come.
