I am not sure if I like the word Drone, but I thought you guys would get a kick out of this.

Looks like they based the flight platform on a Walkera.

I noticed Walkera, too. The servos tipped me off.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

this may be the smallest in open format, but it is not the smallest in the world. The Brits use one called the Black Hornet.. it is mostly useless outside, but in the right weather conditions, its pretty BA. I got a chance to fly one.. most expensive heli I have ever crashed .. its weird to watch a screen and not the heli.

Brushless outrunner tail motor? Suspect same for mains. Very compact design and gear noise appears to be eliminated.

What I found most interesting was the apparent lack of pitch links.. The blades have rollers on them and the disk below the rotors is the swash.. And the links are connected underneath..

Probably uses an elastomeric hub which would dispense with feathering spindle, links, screws and the like in favor of a one piece unit=very light.
