Half the Military’s Robot Copters Are Crashing ....

Believe it or not, this is not all bad news ....


Evening was falling at the desert landing zone near the U.S. Marine Corps’ Camp Leatherneck in southern Afghanistan when the dragonfly-like shape of a robotic helicopter appeared on the horizon.

It was June 5 and the buzzing K-MAX unmanned cargo copter was angling in with a full load of supplies for the troops.

“No one was injured as a result of the incident,” Capt. Matthew Beers, a Marine spokesman, tells Medium.

Ci vorrebbe un qualcosa che porti il pilota "a bordo" del radiocomando il gps non basta, pilotare un elicottero con un carico sotto è complicato non è una gru in un cantiere.
