PD-100 Black Hornet

PD-100 Black Hornet is the name with which Prox Dynamics has named its mini helicopter, a small drone that is currently being tested by no less than the United States Navy in reconnaissance work. Among the most striking details, it should be noted that this device, despite its size, is equipped with three cameras with which you can record and send live video as well as take any type of photography.

According to a number of experts, specifically those in charge of testing the device, apparently the PD-100 Black Hornet stands out above all for its size, ideal to be practically invisible when it is in flight, without a doubt a characteristic that makes it really useful for use in surveillance and reconnaissance tasks.

Regarding the camerasIt should be noted, just as the manufacturing company does, that one of them points directly to the front, another has an angle of 45 degrees with respect to the ground, while the last point points directly to the ground.
