    Seems pretty trivial. Aiming it though, might be a bit harder.

    Guns don't kill people. People who attach guns to drones kill people.

    Seems like the recoil would knock it out of the sky.

    Scary stuff. I don't think that any good can come from the public owning things like that.

    Imagine the potential threat there...if a group had 50 of those and used those at the Boston marathon, Disneyland...or any major public event for that matter.

    This does raise the spectre of what other harmful things drones can do. Shoot a blinding laser, drop a hand grenade (not the obsolete WWII heavy "pineapple", but the modern US kind that's like a baseball), release poisonous gas or powder, or biological agents, like a crop duster.

    Me too. I need to get a more advanced controller for my Phantom 2 so I can hook up stuff like that to it. In theory it would be really easy.

    Hey,
    Lets go rabbit hunting with it.
    I seen a few of these at the beach and one dude had it off the cliffs at Torrey Pines. He was up in the air with the hang gliders. Amazing views like never before.

    Down below is Blacks Beach.....

    Probably so! I sent the video to the park office, and they emailed back saying they loved it...but that drone use is prohibited there (no signs though). Oh well, at least they liked it and are willing to setup a professional drone/video shoot next time I'm there. Yay! icon_biggrin.gif

    I'd rather build a drone that pays people compliments. :-)

    Requires you to get certified and start a business. That's how people make money with a drone.

    I just had a thought - how would a small drone, at the limit of its carrying capacity, handle the recoil from a handgun?

    Quite well, actually.

    Are people actually this naive? The first time I heard about drones a few years ago, my first thought was "these things will eventually be shooting people." icon_confused.gif

    Drones don't shoot people; guns do.

    isnt it cheaper to just use disposable drone carrying say C4. No need to target, just fly over to the target and boom. They could be tiny, and plentiful. That is the future of drones for wmd
