    Quadcopter Tech

    I don't know if anyone here is interested in this sort of thing but it's a quick look at what is possible with racing quadcopters that I've seen at the moment

    Obvious parallels to the Star Wars forest racer whatnot scene

    Ignore the sound

    Early days yet and they are really flimsy but some good possibilities when it comes to nipping across to the next valley looking for deer..

    The military have been using a variety for a while. Saw a neat electro prop glider that the squad launch from a tube, wings spring out, off it goes. Deer and other game probably aren't as onto it as your average jihadi so why not?

    Looks good @308

    What's it like under recoil and is it any good on the carry?

    Cheers
