Black Hornet: micro flyer has a big job

Nov 14, 2013 1 Comment by

This is serious RC! The Black Hornet nano drone, which can be carried in a soldier’s pocket, has an onboard camera that gives troops video and still images of hard-to-access places. Weighing only 16 grams (0.56 ounces), the Black Hornet looks like a tiny toy helicopter but it’s really a nano-size piece of military hardware.

    Debra, can I get in touch with the inventor? I have some other ideas for his technology that might open this to an entirely different market.

    Thanks, Grant
