    A remote-controllable hexacopter gets a birds-eye view of SpaceX’s most recent Grasshopper reusable rocket test.

    Emerald Robinson: SpaceX's reusable rocket prototype, Grasshopper, recently made another successful test flight. But what's really the hot topic with this rocket this week is this video. A remote-controllable hexacopter captured this video clip as the 10-story tall Grasshopper conducted a half-mile ascent and controlled descent. The company says that it is looking forward to a point where the reusable rocket can be tested in a real configuration.
