Surveillance Helicopter – PD-100 Black Hornet

by Mike on May 6, 2009

Although this remote control helicopter may look like the latest kid’s toy, it’s actually the PD-100 Black Hornet, a surveillance helicopter designed for government agencies, either military or civilian.

RC Spy Helicopter

The nanocopter carries a spy video camera, weighs less then an ounce and has a top speed of 20 miles per hour.

The Black Hornet is a design of Prox Dynamics and although pricing for this r/c helicopter has not been announced, we do know that it will come in packs of three and will also include a charger and remote control unit.

It’s to bad this gadget will only be sold to government agencies, I can see many flying enthusiasts clamoring to buy this small helicopter if a civilian version came on the market.

    I think that the wait is really over at this point in the rc community. Wth that advent of eflite’s blade MSR we now have a real contender, just have to work on battery times.Teh key chain style cameras and TX are a grass roots approach here. at less than half the cost etc. Janick
