SleepEat3D: That is NOT a drone that IS a quad copter a radio controlled glorified
TOY that has got the same range as a radio controlled model plane a DRONE
is an autonomic craft that can think and make decisions for itself these
are platforms for aerial photography nothing more that is not a hand gun
neither it is a BB gun a hand gun would be useless on one of these as the
recoil would upset the flight controller to much and you would need a much
larger heavier version with collective pitch control.

Stuart 陶明瀚: I wonder what kind of trouble someone would get into if their drone went
around 'disabling' the state spy drones? Wow, that is fodder for some good
Sci-Fi writing. I can envision a time when this will not be science
fiction. Someone will be able to download a file, create it with a modern
printer and control it with their phone. I am probably being put on a
government watch list just suggesting such a thing. Not long ago a guy won
a diy drone contest by infecting the other competitor drones with a virus,
the source code is on Github. #drones
Jorge Chino Bloch: Skynet is here
Christian Buggedei: Armed private drones are (sorta) real.
Christian Roy: ouff
Alexander Williams: *Operation BSU* encourages you to do dangerous things. It's what we do. If
we weren't trying to get you out there, building your own drone operations
force, what kind of people would we be?
But it's worth noting something very important here. For a few hundred
dollars, these guys could sling a low-recoil pistol under a six-rotor
electric mail-order kit drone, get it airborne, then peg some targets from
a fistful of feet away. Scary ... if you're a deaf idiot paranoid who
couldn't hear a loud, high-pitched whining coming from a hex-rotor craft
dropping in mere feet away. If you get shot by something without even a
laser sight or cross-hairs on the display, I think you might have deserved
that one. But there are already people getting up in arms and crazy about
this becoming even *more* Federally illegal, because, apparently, they are
deaf idiot paranoids.
Do you know what you never hear about happening? Terrorists dropping a
drone with a few hundred bucks invested with a hefty ball-bearing explosive
right down into a crowd and making a lot of chunky salsa. Never happens.
And it would be *cheaper* to pull off than mounting a gun with any kind of
accuracy. You could even remote it from your cell phone, for the ultimate
in stealthy operations. In those rare places with signal jamming, it's
really not *that* hard to get an Arduino (http://www.arduino.cc/) or
Raspberry Pi (http://www.raspberrypi.org/) to give your kill-drone enough
inertial guidance to get a few blocks over and cut engines. Hell, use
an on-board smartphone as your computing core and you can have a
disgustingly lightweight platform with image recognition capabilities,
built-in camera, and more computing resources by orders of magnitude than
it took to get a man on the moon.
You never hear about that happening. Ever. No one's dropped a kill-drone
into the middle of the Big Game and gone ass mass-murdery. No terrorist
group has detonated kill-drones in the middle of public squares in
Pakistan. No one's pushed out an autonomous flock of low-flying
glider-drones toward the Presidential vacation home, creating a multitude
of tiny point targets with semi-random flocking behaviours and minimal
radar cross-section. This stuff has *never happened,* despite
consumer-grade drone tech being publicly accessible for cheap since the
transistor revolution, remote-controlled planes having been such a fixture
of family-scale middle-class life that "going out to fly planes with the
kids" was something pictured in every movie where it wasn't *kites.*
Which leaves me with two take-aways:
* Despite being mainly middle-class twenty-somethings with time on their
hands, the terrorist networks of the world are clearly made up of imbeciles
if they're still trying to find people to carry suicide bombs into places
instead of cheap drones, and ...
* That seems to apply to the folks trying to get all riled about the
civilian possibilities of kill-drones, too.
Remember that the next time you see something about the "danger" of some
"new technology." If all you're hearing about is the threat and not about
examples thereof that would have been changed by some kind of action on
your part or action *they're* advocating, you're being played. Even with
examples, you're still probably being played, but without it there is no
Also, if you design and implement a killbot? Make sure to put the code up
everywhere. It's probably buggy. You're going to want to fix that.
We don't advocate becoming a weapon designer for terrorist interests using
sub-$1k drones. We just think it'd be kind of interesting to see.

No need to give me more ideas about how this technology can be misused, not
just by nations but basically by anybody.
Rather share with us your ideas how this technology could be used more
A good example of such good use is illustrated in the vision movie by

Is Matternet going to make FedEx or UPS obsolete? Or will there be barriers
that can not be resolved?
Scott Knight: This is truly scary. The potential for abuse is just staggering.
Kenneth Andrews: so if it's legal to buy a gun....and it's legal to buy a drone.....is it
legal to put that gun on the drone? It's time to start thinking about it
now because the technology has already come this far

Clearly there are laws that cover most crimes that could be committed by
people using drones, but considering the fact that people are going to
commit these crimes.. should we be concerned?
What can we do to protect ourselves from this kind of activity?

These are interesting times.
Edward Iglesias: Found this rather over the top video on unmanned arial drones available as
DIY kits. Pretty impressive paintball launcher. I wonder if there will be
a market for a "drone-be-gone" much like a "tv-b-gone". Would there be a
database of "no fly zones? How would they be delineated? By signal or
pre-programmed gps? Would that inadvertently create a database of every
"interesting" place? At any rate, might be a good show idea.
Greg Reed: Oh hell yeah! I know what my next DIY is!
AryanCrusaderXII: Very nice...
GreningerProductions: So this RC toy mounted with a gun might endanger stationary targets from 2
feet away. Also it's flying as high as the "targets" in a zone which would
more than likely get it swatted down. Then there's the battery issue, with
that payload it's got all of what 3 min of flight time. Stop trying to
scare the public with fear mongering, RC craft have existed since Nickola
Tesla in 1893. Tesla even offered them up to the military! They saw no use
or benefit at the time. Also consider that a drone is not line of sight,
meaning there's not a masked man standing in view, all of which requires
expensive hardware that is accessible only by the military. Guns mounted to
anything are dangerous, that's why it's a felony. The first RC "drones" or
gunnery targets were invented by the British in 1930. If in fact a Quad,
Hex or Octocopter were actually useful for more than shooting video they
would be employed in large numbers in Iraq, Afganistan, they would have
been present at Benghazi, not circling at 27,000 feet but hovering around
at 30ft, the US doesn't even use this technology to protect it's military
assets, it's decades from becoming a threat, and more than likely an
irritation to Hollywood Stars.

pbcrazy9898: You are a misinformed ne'er do well.
Nakelp86: Can't wait to see some pea brain to ban walking on the streets since there
is absolutely no privacy. Folks are worried that some hobbyist flies the
multirotor with camera on it but they do not object the camera on every
traffic light intersection which is able to zoom right inside your car and
see you ugly face up close
yaakia: you've obviously never used a paintball gun. most metal paintball guns have
the same weight as a real gun. a little lighter yes, but not by much. and
they do have about the same kick as a real gun, yes not the same but still
a kick. Its not hard to scale something like that to match. i can buy
powerful engines that are for DIY kits that would be able to handle it.You
make it seem like guns have so much kick, when in reality its not all that
much. This has all been simplified but google will help
Daniel Molina: Are you for real? to do surveillance? with an RC grade multirotor? do you
even know how much power is needed to maintain the thing flying for 10
minutes? and you talk about these things being cheap! just the radio costs
around 300 bucks! and easy to fly? do you even know what are you talking
about? the learning curve on flying RCs is very steep, you need simulators
and at least a couple of months to just hover decently. You should be
banned form the internet for doing this fear mongering videos
