I agree! Kids can be close enough with their parents to call them up drunk or stoned. I'd be cussing up a storm if I saw this, just out of the blue outside of my house. That's just a normal reaction in some people who are caught by surprise. I don't understand the need to condemn anyone for that here.

What doesn't make sense to me is, if you want to fly an rc plane, why would you do this in a crowded place over a hotel? Why not take it to an empty field or something more out in the open? It's just something to consider..

Basically in order for this to be hoaxed, all of these people would have had to agree together to create it, time it, and agree to upload their videos the same night. OR, both sitings are rc planes, and the coincidence of all of it taking place in one night is just.. coincidence. Not sure what I believe at this point. It seems to me that it's neither one of the two.

I can't believe I missed this! I live in College Station, but unfortunately didn't get to experience this. Cool video, maybe next time something like this happens I'll be there to see it...

You didn't miss anything. The movements of these lights match many terrestrial items, so are probably LED kites, LED R/C Heli, real copters, etc. When it makes right angle turns at high rates of speed, then it might be something to see. These videos in the OP show nothing amazing or otherworldly as much as we'd like them to.

it has one crucial element missing:
extreme acceleration.

the acceleration of the objects are soft, very lifelike.
they move without purpose, having fun, like a dance. (extraterrestrial crafts are not dancing. they stop, hover, inspect, an then get to another point with crazy precision and speed. they are efficient)
blue and red lights are specific for human aircraft to distinguish the sides.

100% man made.
other than that all bets are open.

to me that is one of the best video's of the last year or so. It didnt sound scripted to me,and the RC helicopter idea just sounds silly. One of the best videos i have seen on here for a long time!

Personally I liked the video for a number of reasons:-

1. RC planes with lights explanation isnt really relevant as those orbs looked rather close (dipping behind houses not very far away) so the filmers would have heard the noise of the engines as those things are extremely loud and would seem louder at night with not so much ambient sound around.

2. The very intense colour changes also caught my eye. There was an interesting quality to the intense blue.

3. Also the orbs hovered on occassion, RC planes cannot and RC helicopters cant swoop and go straight up and down at that velocity

4. Probably the most telling aspect to lead me to believe this may be genuine, was the kids remark about the dogs in the neighbourhood going mental. Animals being extremely noisey during UFO sightings is recorded the world over and unless your into the subject, wouldn't know this is the case. These kids didn't strike me as knowing anything about the subject.

All in all i'm going to give this video my backing.. The only beef I have is why the kids didnt run over to the houses and beyond to get a better/closer view. I'd have been sprinting in that direction sharpish!!

Im not Mr. R/C Guru, but I have seen plenty of videos from those that are! A couple of things you said need some clarification.....

1.) Most R/C planes can easily hover like helicopters

2.)R/C helicopters can do practically ANYTHING in the hands of a skilled pilot!

Kites go right out the window when you realize that they weren't filming in a hurricane. No kite can gain that kind of altitude that quickly.....I still think the sighting video has several possible explanations and I look forward to reading the other debunkers' posts. I'm not buying the kite thing though.....

Its a rc plane because news tells me it is

I'll admit to being vexed by this video. Many members have given up very good explanations, RC Kites being the best I think.

Still, how does something which only stays in the sky under it's own forward motion, hover? I know, given it's flying into a breeze, a small craft can remain wholly still. In fact, I've often witnessed entire flocks of birds simply not making any ground against a sturdy wind(hilarious, BTW).

The trouble is that this state of immobility never seems to remain for long. Breezes and winds frequently change strength, though they may be constantly blowing. Therefore, in order to achieve a 'perfect' hover, the person piloting this would have to give and gain acceleration in time with the wind losing and gaining strength. These lights do not seem to jerk back or forward suddenly at all, which is what would inevitably happen, considering how difficult it is to predict the falling/gaining of wind speed. Even the best of pilots would get unlucky sooner or later.

This is also the reason why birds fight against the wind. Even though they may be often held at bay, they occasionally gain a few feet as the wind dies down for a moment.

Do I think these things are alien spacecraft? No, but right now I don't think that 'RC Kites' is a suitable explanation.

ok so i just registered to post this and contribute to this topic,

im a very experienced RC user, i use planes helis and cars, and yes they have great range depending on controllers, receivers ect.

ok so as a rc experienced user i can easily say these can be rc planes or helis, but i doubt it highly,

ok for the reason that it cant be planes,
planes are not made to hover, they can hover (seen in this video)
if you added a few multi-colored LEDs to a plane yeah sure you can do this, bring to planes in a fly that close to the other, your in for some damage most likely, and you would need no winds at all at that height, as fliping the plane may occur, and the direct up and down movement is not likely for a plane.

now with helis this behavior may be true and you could do it but, the amount of LEDs to make it that bright, you wouldn't see which way your tail or anything is facing so flying 2 that close is dangerous, and a close to 7 minute (i think) video, flying that high you would want a good battery in that heli. and if they was helis you have to be stupid to fly them that close of a night, even of a day if your really experienced, now the reason im taking helis out of the question is because the speed they drop at behind the house's no way in hell if you turned off the throttle and let it drop that low and fast would you be able to slow it down before it hit the ground, and it flies back up meaning it didnt crash, so as a experienced RC users im ruling RC vehicles out, no way in hell could a heli survive that drop that fast!

btw if you have any questions about RC planes or helis, just ask i should be able to answer it.

ps. they are on the phone for sure, as at one point you can hear another female slightly in the back ground off a small speaker! just listen closely the whole video!

how close are you to the airport? one comment was made by a group nearby

on Oldenburg Lane, college station (TX) and that is here:

quite close to an airport. Im not saying these were aircraft.

But it would be nice to triangulate a better position as to where these were in the sky.

Guessed you missed the video I linked above. RC helis can move straight down at over 100mph and instantaneously reverse direction and go straight up at over 100mph.....Being a "very experienced" RC pilot you should know that. Also, isnt an rc kite just a slow less manuverable RC plane? My point is that kites would not be able to do this regardless of what motor, ESC setup etc were used. It COULD be a heli or a plane set up for 3D flying flown on a FPV (first-person view) setup but you would hear it. Example: the second video I posted above of the RC heli doing the acrobatics is an ELECTRIC model and it is very loud and makes a very distinct sound. You would hear that noise long before any LED's I've ever seen would appear that bright. I agree that its probably not an RC craft of any kind for THIS reason, not that the craft aren't capable of these manouvers we see in this "sighting" video. I'm leaning more toward the CGI explanation If I had to choose.....

I tried to get at the sound issue of flying R/C craft below, watch the second video of the acrobatic R/C helicopter. This is a VERY noisy machine even though it is electric powered. I think you would hear that noise prominently on the video as no LED is bright enough that you would see it this brightly without hearing some telltale noise.

Also, it is not difficult at all to remove some or any audio from videos and replace it with....whatever! But, this is second on my list of possible explanations behind CGI....

I live about 40 miles away from the location in question and I since I fly R/C planes on a daily basis, I watch the wind pretty closely. If I'm remembering correctly, we did not have more than 10mph winds that day here (Houston) and typically there is not much difference between wind speeds in College Station and Houston unless we have a disturbance like a cold front or tropical wave which we didn't that day. Hope this helps!

yes i understand your point, of the speeds, (no i didnt see your video) and cant say ive heard of RC kites before (in Australia) anyway.

but like you said they would have to be a very skilled pilot to be doing maneuvers like that, especially in the dark, which also has me wondering, why would they fly of a night, normally you would want to see exactly what your aircraft is doing. im not saying your wrong, but yeah you Americans do things differently to us Aussies, but again like i said before, flying 2 helis or planes in that matter, so close to each other.

I'm Just sayin'.....a kite with a motor and no string is just an rc airplane made out of a kite! A kite, even with the best Motor, ESC, lightest Rx, best Tx (etc.) would still probably not be able to fly "3D" this well. The whole "RC kite v. RC airplane debate is a moot point....they are the same thing except a rigid airframe would "hover" better than flimsy plastic or cloth stretched over a couple of dowels.
Either way, here is a link I wanted to post showing another acrobatic helicopter. This one has a nitro (gas) engine for sound comparison as well as a demonstration of what RC helicopters are capable of when someone who knows what they are doing takes the sticks:

Sorry if this is getting a bit off-topic but I thought it was pertinent stuff! ;-)>

I live here in East Texas and I know exactly how they could of staged it.A local metro area of Tyler/Longview has just what the name implies Longview.This is Texas and you could be back 400-500 ft.back filming while your buddies run around on little stages n trails swinging the light on a hand held tether.come on! People put up live plays with effects just as similar. Total hogwash in my book.The kids are reading scripts.It's so obvious.
