Airsoft Predator?

Just wondering if anyones built an air recon airsoft RC Predator? I rember when I was a kid there were kits (built mostly out of styrofoam) I was thinking it could add to a game as a prop that could "crash" during mission after flying over a large sector of the feild so everyone knows what it looks like. You could even have a halt in some info for a team until recapture is complete. Just thought it would be kinda cool.

I've thought about this. I saw a radio controlled helicopter toy that was very easy to fly and had a real-time webcam on it that transmitted the image back down to Earth. Don't recall what it was called but it was very cool, around a thousand bucks and manufactured in Saskatchewan. It would make a great reconaissance tool or objective for teams, provided there was a competent pilot for them to "commandeer".

The main issues I see with R/C aircraft and airsoft are twofold.

1. They can be very dangerous. The prop's spinning at thousands of RPMs and could cause injury if it hits someone, not to mention the blunt force of being struck by an object that large.

2. How do you prevent idiots from shooting at it?

Was it the Dragonfly? I believe that was the original name, but there are plenty of alternate monickers floating around. It has 4 props arranged in a square, gyro stabilized, and a freefloating webcam on a boom.

Yes, that's it! Very neat little toy, I'm seriously considering buying one for airsoft ops as a possible admin-operated asset. Team captures "helipad" and an admin flies it around for them as aerial recon. Just have to make sure that everyone is advised of the consequences of shooting at it.

whats next, is someone going to build a model aircraft carrier and put it in a puddle? It'll make for good SEAL deployment scenarios

What I was more thinking of was a cheap styrofoam glider type RC air craft that was large and have easily repairable model. I wasn't really thinking actual recon, just large and if it were actually crash not hurt anyone.
