The "Charlene" Quadcopter video is CG. Its is modeled after the quadcopters in Call of Duty. http://gizmodo.com/5904277/this-quadrotor-flying-machine-gun...

This RC heli is real though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJinbQNSNVU

Actually I am pretty sure

Actually I am pretty sure that is real.(and I have seen it before now) There isnt anything about it that is beyond us or anything. We have model helicopters and what not. To take it step further isnt terribly hard. He might say advanced, but I would say only reasonably and mostly because its basically new and someone had to make it mostly from scratch; most of the from scratch being the programming.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

It's definitely fake

It has no shadow in static shots, it has horribly fake "muzzle flash" and no recoil when firing. Not to mention that drone is a concept from the Blackops 2.

Why couldn't the rotors be programmed to anticipate

the gun firing? The rear ones could slow down and the front ones speed up or something like that, to keep the craft level?
