What can a Black Hornet drone do?

What can a Black Hornet drone do?

The latest Pd-100 Black Hornet 3, which FLIR Systems also calls the Personal Reconnaissance System (PRS), weighs less than a tenth of a pound and is just under seven inches long. The complete system comes with a docking station for two drones that keeps them protected when not in use, as well as a hand-held touchscreen device and a controller.

The most obvious difference between the Black Hornet Nano and traditional UAVs like the Global Hawk, MQ-9 Reaper, and new Loyal Wingman, is the size. Prox Dynamics AS, the Norwegian company responsible for creating the Black Hornet, made it its mission “to develop, produce and sell the world’s smallest and most advanced” UAV. At just over the size of a soldier’s finger, the miniature unmanned helicopter seems to have delivered on that promise.

    I would have a problem to spend 200.000 dollar for such a tiny thing

  2. Pappy on May 23, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    Now it’s possible to be a fly in the room.

  3. Raphaël on May 23, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    "16 grams and 4 inches"
    I… what?

  4. Krum Sotirov on May 23, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    "only $195 000"! send me TWO! I mortgaged my home for less than 80000.

  5. TRiCALS on May 23, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    195000$ for one piece ??? Chinese companies can make 195000 of these with that amount 😂😂

  6. Pauls Computer Lab on May 23, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    the price is really a joke… when you see how many countries use them -> there’s the problem of today’s world.

  7. King Shango Sound on May 23, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    price adjusted for US defense budget

  8. Silver Fletcher on May 23, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Why do you not use this Black Hornets to kill or to hit Putin? It could be the right thing to carry out such beneficial task.

  9. Music on May 23, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    What a blatant scam

  10. Shawn Johnson on May 23, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    They should fire nerf darts from it

  11. squashedmike on May 23, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    That’s the most expensive piece of plastic i ever saw!

    It’s only worth $500.00

  14. Roger Dickinson on May 23, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    Ridiculous price

  15. GoFlyFPV on May 23, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Mini 2 much better range

  16. Bill Somrak on May 23, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    What a waste of $200K. This thing would be blown away in even light winds, or rendered difficult to control .. especially by novice/n00b operators. Not only do I fly UAVs, but I’ve been flying RC aircraft for almost 60 years. We’ve all heard the military waste stories … $500 hammers … $500 screwdrivers .. etc. This is even worse.

  17. Ricky Spanish on May 23, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    Legend has it that one flew straight up a hippos ass and left via its mouth.

  18. David Scruggs on May 23, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    Tax waste at it’s finest! While in the USMC, we had a cleaning kit for the A-6 DRS camera. It’s cost was $24,000.00 and consisted of a thin fiberglass case, some foam and 2 spray bottles and 4 dust brushes. All this could be purchased at any big box store for $10.00….!!!

  19. Corban Eells on May 23, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    I would like to have heard audio of it in operation.

  20. Turtle Beach on May 23, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Why is tbis thing so damn expensive
    It can’t be be because of the parts right ?

  21. Serdar on May 23, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    190k drone vs $100-500USD 3d printable DIY drone with battery of your choice and camera of your choice. Tell me why I’d get a fancy 190k drone if I was military.

  22. Teague on May 23, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    That tiny piece of plastic costs probably $10 to make.

  23. Flesz on May 23, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    I want to go to military now
    I always liked controlling remote devices
    Got a remote controlled turle when I was a kid

  24. Joe Smoe on May 23, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    Cost affective? Who ?what? Where?

  25. Vince on May 23, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    Watch for mini drones equipped with explosive charges and facial recognition software. They will be able to pick a person out of a crowd and fly directly to the target and blow up at the targets forehead. They can also be programmed to seek individuals with certain military uniforms. War is gonna change drastically in the near future.

    The biggest conspiracy and the biggest lie in history that assassinated Christians and enslaved them generations, is the story of the crucifixion of Jesus, son of Mary, peace be upon them.Then they distorted the Gospel and the Torah, and deprived themselves of the Holy Qur’an, which they were unable to distort because Allah pledged to preserve and protect it until the Day of Resurrection.

    Allah loveth not the utterance of harsh speech save by one who hath been wronged. Allah is ever Hearer, Knower.

    If ye do good openly or keep it secret, or forgive evil, lo! Allah is ever Forgiving, Powerful.

    004.150 Lo! those who disbelieve in Allah and His messengers, and seek to make distinction between Allah and His messengers, and say: We believe in some and disbelieve in others, and seek to choose a way in between;

    Such are disbelievers in truth; and for disbelievers We prepare a shameful doom.

    But those who believe in Allah and His messengers and make no distinction between any of them, unto them Allah will give their wages; and Allah was ever Forgiving, Merciful.

    The people of the Scripture ask of thee that thou shouldst cause an (actual) Book to descend upon them from heaven. They asked a greater thing of Moses aforetime, for they said: Show us Allah plainly. The storm of lightning seized them for their wickedness. Then (even) after that) they chose the calf (for worship) after clear proofs (of Allah’s Sovereignty) had come unto them. And We forgave them that! And We bestowed on Moses evident authority.

    And We caused the Mount to tower above them at (the taking of) their covenant: and We bade them: Enter the gate, prostrate! and We bode them: Transgress not the Sabbath! and We took from them a firm covenant.

    Then because of their breaking of their covenant, and their disbelieving in the revelations of Allah, and their slaying of the prophets wrongfully, and their saying: Our hearts are hardened – Nay, but Allah set a seal upon them for their disbelief, so that they believe not save a few –

    And because of their disbelief and of their speaking against Mary a tremendous calumny;

    And because of their saying: We slew the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s messenger – they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they slew him not for certain.

    But Allah took him up unto Himself. Allah was ever Mighty, Wise.

    There is not one of the People of the Scripture but will believe in him before his death, and on the Day of Resurrection he will be a witness against them –

    Because of the wrongdoing of the Jews We forbade them good things which were (before) made lawful unto them, and because of their much hindering from Allah’s way,

    And of their taking usury when they were forbidden it, and of their devouring people’s wealth by false pretences, We have prepared for those of them who disbelieve a painful doom.

    But those of them who are firm in knowledge and the believers believe in that which is revealed unto thee, and that which was revealed before thee, especially the diligent in prayer and those who pay the poor- due, the believers in Allah and the Last Day. Upon these We shall bestow immense reward.

    Lo! We inspire thee as We inspired Noah and the prophets after him, as We inspired Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and Jesus and Job and Jonah and Aaron and Solomon, and as We imparted unto David the Psalms;

    And messengers We have mentioned unto thee before and messengers We have not mentioned unto thee; and Allah spake directly unto Moses;

    Messengers of good cheer and of warning, in order that mankind might have no argument against Allah after the messengers. Allah was ever Mighty, Wise.

    But Allah (Himself) testifieth concerning that which He hath revealeth unto thee; in His knowledge hath He revealed it; and the angels also testify. And Allah is sufficient Witness.

    Lo! those who disbelieve and hinder (others) from the way of Allah, they verily have wandered far astray.

    Lo! those who disbelieve and deal in wrong, Allah will never forgive them, neither will He guide them unto a road,

    Except the road of hell, wherein they will abide for ever. And that is ever easy for Allah.

    O mankind! The messenger hath come unto you with the Truth from your Lord. Therefor believe; (it is) better for you. But if ye disbelieve, still, lo! unto Allah belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth. Allah is ever Knower, Wise.

    O People of the Scripture! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning Allah save the truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah, and His word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers, and say not "Three" – Cease! (it is) better for you! – Allah is only One God. Far is it removed from His Transcendent Majesty that He should have a son. His is all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allah is sufficient as Defender.

    The Messiah will never scorn to be a slave unto Allah, nor will the favoured angels. Whoso scorneth His service and is proud, all such will He assemble unto Him;

    Then, as for those who believed and did good works, unto them will He pay their wages in full, adding unto them of His bounty; and as for those who were scornful and proud, them will He punish with a painful doom. And they will not find for them, against Allah, any protecting friend or helper.

    O mankind! Now hath a proof from your Lord come unto you, and We have sent down unto you a clear light;

    As for those who believe in Allah, and hold fast unto Him, them He will cause to enter into His mercy and grace, and will guide them unto Him by a straight road.

  27. MATTHEW GIBBS on May 23, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    cost per unit 1 million dollars and arrives where its needed with no controller or no batteries. the usual

  28. j cottrill on May 23, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    195grand seems a bit expensive for that little thing these companies don’t even break out the Vaseline for the fucking they give poor old Uncle Sam which ends up screwing us tax payers

  29. LinKongDa on May 23, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    USD$195,000!!!! that can be destroyed by a rolled up magazine? NO freaking thank you.

  30. Jurassic Coasting on May 23, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    the price is made up

  31. nic farrow on May 23, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    How do you manage to get so very little information into such a very long video? You could’ve said all of that in 30 seconds

  32. Cornel Furdui on May 23, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    Wow Norway 👌👍✅😲❤️

  33. gby0x7c1 on May 23, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    "Powered by very small rechargeable battery DeSigNeD to rotate both horizontal and vertical rotors" – WOOOW, such a unique design! Rechargeable? Amazing! Both rotors at the same time? Impossibly advanced! Definitely worth 200K!

  34. bodstrup on May 23, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Where did you get that video game footage of visible green laser rays from a rifle ? – Unless very dusty, you do NOT see the laser beam – only reflections from surfaces.

  35. Kilroy on May 23, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    Sorry but no. These can’t fly in even a light breeze. They just move with the wind. Also due to the size, the battery will just not last.

  36. Bobby on May 23, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    I bet you I can get it stuck in a tree. Happens all the time

  37. Alain Koch on May 23, 2022 at 7:39 pm

  38. rj hinde on May 23, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Well, this video and many of the comments did not age well. We now know a LOT more about how drones will be used in warfare. If you have to choose between one of these, or a couple of ATGM or MANPADS and a few budget consumer drones, this thing won’t ever see real action.

  39. uelude on May 23, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    Not sure about sending these to India given they’ll just reverse engineer it or give it to the Russians or Chinese who definitely will and mass produce them for a tiny fraction of the price. False economy selling to Putin / China pals India.

  40. DodgingRain on May 23, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    There is no way a drone that size should cost $200k, just ridiculous, perfect example of defense companies raping citizens

  41. Jorge A. Rodriguez on May 23, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    ¿Que que puede hacer? Pues lo mismo que el helicóptero que esta en Marte.

  42. EVMANVSGAS on May 23, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    Someone needs to release a new one for about 5k each right now.

  43. Jurassic Coasting on May 23, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    where is it in Ukraine or any front?

  44. sparkyindahouse on May 23, 2022 at 7:47 pm


  45. Alain Koch on May 23, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Advantage of DJI mini2 vs black hornet:
    Dji mini 2: less weight, 10x more range, 30% more flight time, obsitcle avoidance, warranty, better camera, foldable, 500x cheaper
    black hornet: its black

    US conclusion: lets go with black hornet! its better to pay 199600 USD more for an inferiour drone then to spend 5 USD on spraypaint.

  46. Mach1 on May 23, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Amazing war industry manufacturing paychecks on the fly.

  47. Jerry Hill on May 23, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Strong gusts of wind or continuous winds must be its biggest challenge

  48. lDeadPirate on May 23, 2022 at 7:49 pm


  49. OLEG on May 23, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    The Chinese will be able to make such a drone for 1000$
