I was instantly suspicious as well. The item in the photo looks like a bad mockup, like that Iranian jet.
- It has one rotor, and a tail rotor. A coaxial unit would be easier to fly. Flying fixed-pitch or collective pitch model helis is hard to learn! OK, maybe it has an amazing autopilot and stability control. Or maybe operators just have to put in the time to build skill.
- The rotor disc looks pretty small, out of proportion to other models I am familiar with. Proves nothing and I am not a helicopter designer, but...
- The listed run time and speed imply battery technology that is about 10x as good as you can get with hobbyist grade lithium polymer batteries. Is there a light battery available anywhere, at any price, that can store power 10x more densely than the lipos used in model aircraft? Add in the GPS, autopilot, and the long video transmission range and you really seem to be talking about magic, not batteries.
I bet the specs on this thing are BS, if it flies at all. But even a drone that can only fly short distances for short durations could be incredibly useful for looking around corners. And that sort of performance is available dirt cheap these days, so I am sure we will see more stories like this.
