The Grasshopper Climbs Higher and Higher...

As an unmanned Hexacopter hovers nearby, the Grasshopper test vehicle soars toward an altitude of 744 meters (2,441 feet) above McGregor, Texas, on October 7, 2013.

Just thought I'd share these screenshots from SpaceX's newest video showing its Grasshopper test vehicle soaring to an altitude of 744 meters (2,441 feet) above McGregor, Texas, on October 7. This remarkable footage was taken by an unmanned Hexacopter that hovered near the experimental Falcon 9 rocket stage during its flight. Good stuff.
