Effective props are an important part of LARP – with them we can better create an atmosphere and feelings of immersion and being there. The Grim Reaper in this video was made for a prank, but looking at it in the air all I can think of is what a prompt. Flying beasts are hard to do so when one turns up it is all the more convincing.
How is it done? The Grim Reaper model is supported and controlled by a remote controlled helicopter. With helicopters and quad-copters are getting more cheaper and easier to use all the time. Perhaps more people will use this as inspiration for a new generation of LARP flying terrors.
