Working of the Black Hornet
This drone comes completely pre-assembled. All you need to do is take it out of the box and you can start flying it. It works exactly like a small remote controlled plane or a PS3 game. You have the controls and you can fly this drone at a speed of up to 10 miles an hour. It usually stays in the air for up to about 30 minutes. You can either fly it manually or you can simply plug in GPS coordinates and the drone will fly to these coordinates in auto-pilot mode. The coolest part about this drone is that it can take real-time video through the cameras that are attached to it. The video is transmitted to the screen in your hand.
The Black Hornet is priced from $30,000 to $50,000 which is a hefty price for a civilian. But this little drone is quickly getting very popular and is being used for various military missions as well as by search and rescue teams.
