We are RedLine Empire. Our technology is better than yours. And if it's not? We'll either steal it or blow it up. Our Black Widow drone is used in the field by many skilled Recon Commandos. Armed with anything from just a camera to the mighty "KABOOM" micro-rockets, we make use of these "defensive" capabilities for offensive means.
4TH WALL Commentary: Based on the DJI Mavic Pro Drone, this was a surprisingly fluid design. After I got going, it flowed. I really enjoyed this category, and hope you enjoy the drone. :-)
CATEGORY 12: Drone (MILPO)
A modern air force needs new kinds of reconnaissance, the kind that can be controlled by a 10 year old...
For this, you will build a remote-controlled drone-type VTOL aircraft that meets the following SPECS:
1. Your Drone does NOT actually have to be remote-controlled but it MUST look like it. There should be an antenna on the craft and you need to build a hand-held control device. These can be any scale.
2. There must be exactly FOUR helicopter-like rotor blades to provide lift and power. These blades must rotate and also swivel in some way so that thrust can be re-directed.
3. Your Drone must carry a camera on it's underside that must be shown in at least two positions. This camera will have an SD card for it's files which is removable and will be shown both in and out of the camera.
4. Your Drone will also have at least one way of defending itself. This could be a gun, laser, blowtorch etc. or anything you can think of that causes pain. Please identify and describe it in the write-up.
The Black Widow has many different configurations. This configuration includes the KABOOM micro-rockets, as well as an experimental "Hyper-Wave" compact antennae and I/O combo module.
The Black Widow's rotors rotate for maximum aerial agility.
Required Camera position 1.
Required Camera position 2.
The remote by itself. The red button is for KABOOM, and the blue button is for click.
