I can hunt from the privacy of my own home! How long until we have civilian models armed with a stripped down AR-15 with 30 round magazine?

You know they said the same thing about scissors.

In the event of an emergency, your drone may be used as a flotation device.

It has been done.
I know this guy that started w/ model rockets 40 years ago. You know, explosive warheads are prohibited,,, Even in Texas thay frown on 4oz of C4 as a payload. And he moved along w/ remotes over the years.
Ten years ago, he had video of somebody firing a 4/10 from a quad and it survived.
Latest video was shot from on board a quad w/ rockets, smoke bombs and a BB autogun.
Or so the CSB goes.

Heh. I would have gone with 'That's an odd looking bird.'

"What the fark are these humans doing now?  Can't they just use binoculars like normal primates?"

When are we going to start the drone strikes on funerals over here? America: We'll free the shiat out of you!

Moose to drone:

"Quit farking around, Rocky!"

Harassed wildlife doesn't usually walk up and sniff at its harassers.
 
2013-01-08 01:44:31 PM
Yes, leave it to the Norwegians to immediately spy on a moose. The Danes would be trying to figure out how to locate more beer.
 
2013-01-08 01:55:09 PM
It's fun to know that European nerds sound about the same as American nerds.

I think we can kiss the rest of the wild tiger, rhino and snow leopard populations goodbye now.

Just imagine how much more effective he would have been at harassing wildlife if he exchanged the tight cargo shorts for a drone.

I considered that; but, I felt that the mosquito comment was funnier.

A little Googling tells me that for under a hundred bucks, plus maybe some dead-simple electrical tomfoolery to extend range of the RC signal, you can get a flying thingamabob of one sort or another that can reliably carry a video camera half a mile away, and bring it back. That's not even getting into remotely high-end stuff or advanced tinkering.

The implications for raunchy teen sex comedies are staggering. Wake up, Hollywood.

This stuff is available commercially. I spent a hell of a lot of time watching this guy's videos.

Moose probably thought it was just flying squirrel.
 
2013-01-08 02:51:46 PM
It would have been much funnier if the moose had followed the drone back to the camp.
