The aircraft weighs just 18 grams and is available in “day” and “night” versions with different cameras. With a range of up to one mile, the Black Hornet provides a live video feed to the operator on a chest-mounted display. The total system, including two aircraft, a controller and the video screen weighs less than three pounds. The controller has been optimized for single-handed operation. The Black Hornet is a restricted product, and is only sold to agencies of friendly governments, such as: the military, law enforcement and firefighters.

  19. Arki Tekto on March 8, 2021 at 12:26 am

    adverse in weather condition? this thing will just fly away, they just make it look army stuff to make a sale. Mavic mini is far better than this one.

  20. CarbonGlassMan on March 8, 2021 at 12:27 am

    It’s only sold to governments, but it’s not hard to make your own. There are plenty of tiny quadcopters that give live video feed, have a range of miles, and can give the user situational awareness. Hell, a tiny airplane is great for that. It flies faster, stays up longer and is quieter.

  21. Bern C. Prasertsri on March 8, 2021 at 12:27 am

    With all due respect to the VP and the interviewer having mentioned tactical operation background.
    Some things that should have been asked were: What transmission system does it use? Is it WiFi? Is it OcuSync? Is it some other transmitter system that’s worthy of its cost? …Because if its WiFi, that 1mi range becomes 1/4mi range in an urban environment or even less the lower the altitude. Might as well throw money in the rubbish, if that’s the case. Also what is its maximum velocity and ceiling? What is its crosswind stability capabilities? Flight time of X minutes at what power consumption rate? It is good technology and ideology. But the right questions need to be asked and the technology needs to be implemented for it to be practical.

  44. Elliot Huh? on March 8, 2021 at 12:54 am

    Will this come with all the cool stuff the US gov offers free citizens for their drones? Like remote ID, geo fencing and no fly zones.

  45. Mario Mirdita on March 8, 2021 at 12:55 am
