Glasses: [Jtech Photonics](https://jtechphotonics.com/?product=laser-safety-goggles-for-445nm-lasers) (3x 25 USD)
Black Balloon: (Dollar store close to Halloween or Amazon)
PWM controlled relay (8 USD)

Total: about 2500 USD + transmitter (100 to 500 USD), including the quadcopter and the motion capture equipment.
Most of this is reusable for many other projects if you have a quadcopter lab.
