Black Hornet: the 18 gram drone

US Special Forces are testing out the PD-100 Black Hornet 2 drone.

18 grams, 25 minute battery life with a range of two miles.

Regular surveilance cameras with additional thermal camera capability.

Designed by the Norwegian company Prox Dynamics, the drone’s miniscule size and embedded technology make it an ideal tool for covert missions.

The British military began implementing the device to soldiers in 2013, and now the US military is apparently showing interest.

The stealth device can be flown autonomously with its GPS autopilot feature or it can be manually controlled.
