Got UAV ?

Having something like this "eye in the sky" might be useful, and good fun for the kids. hmmm...

  • 4:3 Real-time video from remote control helicopter or aircraft.
  • 16:9 720p HD video recording of up to 5 hours onto 16GB SD card, supporting post flight data transfer.
  • Separate real-time GPS navigation data download available.

  • Radio-Control signals up to helicopter/aircraft locate the control station. --> Move transmitter away from high value items. 
  • RF video broadcast can be seen by anyone viewing same frequency. --> Minimally Encrypted Video downlink.
  • Loiter time. Cycle time to land, refuel, relaunch. --> Multiple units.
  • Daylight cameras.  --> Night-time sensors.
This vendor appears to have run out, for now. But FYI - The gear is out there.

I'd think this should seriously go on a Prepping list.

It would also be interesting to modify it to drop water balloons or shoot soft air 6mm BBs.
Then, you and your friends could shoot BB at each other with airplanes and helicopters.
If you got a stiker that could bust primer caps that would be even more fun.
Sound Like Fun?

I LIKE IT!!! That is a superb little piece of kit for so many theoretical uses.;) Paint the bird a light matte grey, and good to go.
