While browsing the web I just found this campaign on Indiegogo:
Carbon Flyer: The Ultimate Crash Proof Video Drone
Even if I don't like the D-Word it's a very interesting little 'always there' flyer. There have been some similar campaigns in the past but this one seems to be one of the most robust and most advanced for me.
by Cyrus Farivar DUBLIN, Calif. — At the headquarters of the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office (ACSO), 34 miles east of San Francisco, Sheriff Gregory Ahern formally announced on Wednesday that his agency had finally acquired two drones just one day earlier. Once approved…
JR, a premier manufacturer of RC helicopters of all sizes and applications for over 20 years, knows a thing or two about rotorcraft. To prove it, they have just announced the release of their first entry to the multi-copter market – the Ninja 400MR. This high-quality, aerobatic 3D quadcopter kit is sure to turn heads wherever it goes. With four independent brushless outrunner motors turning fixed pitch propellers, the Ninja is designed to reverse direction quickly. The Ninja is a very agile model with a very wide performance envelope. And yet it retains a level of simplicity and is also lightweight, for unreal performance in the air!
Central to its incredible flight characteristics is a custom-tuned, 6-axis gyro stabilization flight control system that plugs directly into an XBus-compatible receiver for simple setup and operation. The core of the Ninja 400MR’s construction is a beautiful carbon fiber main frame with four main aluminum arms and low parts count. A beautifully airbrushed polycarbonate canopy protects the Ninja from both the top and underside, as well as concealing and streamlining the radio equipment and battery. The body attaches to the chassis with body pins and clips in a manner similar to that used on an R/C car. This allows for easy access to the battery.
This comprehensive kit requires only an XBus DMSS receiver and JR DMSS transmitter, a 3S 2200mAh battery, and a few hours’ worth of assembly time to get it in the air. Own a multicopter that stands out ahead of the rest, the Ninja 400MR by JR.
