Butterfly
About this creation
What better way to for an unmanned reconnaissance drone to remain undetected than by imitating nature? Of course, most butterflies don't fly at 80 miles per hour.


The Butterfly Drone primarily relies on speed to get to and away from scouting positions, which is why its standard flight setup doesn't have its propellers in a helicopter configuration.
All 4 wings are variable-pitch, giving it high maneuverability at speed.

In storage mode/powered off.

Each third of the fuselage contains important components; front; navigation/controls; middle, batteries; rear, weapon system.

The camera has full rotation to the left and right, and can lower a bit as well.



The camera with removable data card.



The tail has a flamethrower. It's not very effective against armor, but can still hurt infantry and some buildings.

It can also double as a distraction for heat-seeking missiles, as well as making pretty fire tails in the sky.

The Butterfly does have VTOL and hovering capabilities; useful for getting somewhat steady camera footage and quick takeoff/landing.






The big levers on the sides are to move the wings; middle levers control engine thrust; white button cycles through camera settings (infrared, video/still photo); the grey button turns the flamethrower on/off; silver button for entering/exiting hover mode; middle-bottom lever is camera controls; red button, on/off switch.
There's a small screen for the camera feed.

As the banner says, I like it! It feels very similar to an alternate build of a 3-in-1 Creator set. You can build a quadprop plane, some second model of sorts, or you can build a butterfly drone! Very well done.

A really nice idea! I've got one for you! ;-) Recently, I remembered the existence of one terrible insect. Maybe it'll inspire you! I would be really frightened by some weapons or vehicules based on those terrifying caterpillars! =): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pine_processionary

I thought this CAT would work well for your theme - very nice job integrating the rotors!

Great idea, love how you integrated the rotors so they don't ruin the wing shaping.

Nicely themed drone! Reminds me of the Atalanta, but lethal ;)
