Mikrokopter mania

A friend of mine showed me his new toy last week. The new thingie was a so called “mikrokopter”. It is basically a classic unidentified flying object. 🙂 It is a flying cross with four rotors on the four ends of this cross. It is radio controlled. So far I have not written anything extra. It could have been a definition of any radio controlled models.

But this is something special. First of all it is equipped with very high tech navigational stuff like GPS, altimeter or speedometer. Thus it can be navigated very precisely. Besides that mikrokopter fans usually put high quality cameras on the top of it and they can follow the route of the flying mikrokopter with the help of video glasses, so they can have the feeling of real flying. (See the below videos)

Mikrokopters look the best when they are flown in dark. They are usually equipped with different color lights, which truely gives them a UFO oufit. The following videos show the mikrokopters in action.

    Do you know how far these can fly? And how long they can usually stay in the air?

    Sounds like real fun, but probably very expensive, isn’t it?
