AR Drone... would they use it?

Post by Alfisti on Tue 23 Feb 2010 - 23:26

New gadget for the iPhone using fratelli... the Parrot AR Drone:





I must have one...

Ok, seriously though, I think it'd be a cool gadget that Monty or Jethro could use... range I imagine could be a bit limited, but on the upside, since it's controlled by the iPhone you can sit in a cafe and pretend to be sending a txt or checking the internet rather than needing to conceal a bulky controller.

Bit noisy.

Makes sense. I have used "hand deployed" drones in some of my OC fiction as support for multi-fratelli operations.

It looks fun, but it's hardly discreet... I wonder how practical that sort of thing is.

"Anyone hear buzzing?"

"Pull!"



Although with drones now controlled by iPhone I'm having visions of CIA agents sitting with a frappucino in the Pentagon's Starbucks and bombing a couple of NW Frontier outposts before getting back to the office...!

I'd think Marisa's fingers would be inflicting the damage, not taking it. Wink

Fernando has access to anything in the CIA Supply closet, but prefers to access the KH-series satellites up above. No need to fill out requisition forms for them or waiting for their delivery. More fun is swiping Hubble from NASA for those really close views of the neighborhood... But then they come screaming at Fernando and must send a shuttle to right Hubble again. And you thought those Shuttle flights to Hubble was just for upgrades...

Oh, no dispute there...it's not the first time Marisa has disabled an expensive piece of equipment, I doubt those blades are very stout. Still, anyone who had ever accidentally leaned on the fan shroud of their engine bay and stuck a few unfortunate fingers in the fan knows it still hurts like a bitch.

Never tried it with the car's fan... but have run my hand through a model plane prop once or twice... fortunately only little ones though. I remember one of the blokes at the club caught his hand in the prop of one of the big 3D Aerobatic jobs. Shattered just about every bone in it. Which is why kiddies we don't wrap pieces of cloth around our hands when dealing with rotating machinery.

The AR Drones look sweet, though my network isn't quite up to the task of piloting one unless it could broadcast past that damn I-beam running through half the house...
