Looks like that thing fits in the back of a car.
I wonder how accurate it i to shoot? Does pilot fly and shoot?
With a mufflers and a pistol silencer, it could be a deadly weapon.:smoke23:
I can see it now your own Air Force ,That thing is actually scary with a camera showing gun sites etc. you could go hunting from your living room
Try this one out.
Armed Heli - Video
Strange that. Too much time on their hands. Sorta like...me.:duh:
They really need to add the "Blue Thunder" theme to the video.
But I really want one.
I doubt it would be too accurate. They need a stabilized mount for the gun...
I'm sure if someone really wanted to develop this you could add a gyro-stabilized gun mount, and use some pretty simplistic computer programming with a laser range finder and camera to dynamically overlay a distance-adjusted set of sights onto the image a user would see on a remote screen.
Kinda neat watching the heli's response to recoil. I wonder if there are any legal implications for a remotely fired gun? Or perhaps an airborne, remote control gun?
When I saw the second posted video of the helicopter firing full auto I was worried about this...if they didn't have an actual class 3 stamped weapon they could be in serious trouble.
I hope these things are not susceptable to stray radio signals. I could see lots of trouble if a ham radio or cell phone (or even a competing RC unit) takes over.
These are interesting contraptions as well. I prefer my .45 on me and something much much bigger on my helicopter.
