remote control devices on the field
So now the ability to have a drone at a lower cost is becomming more affordable. Remote control helicoptors are at or under $50 for the holidays. Wifi hotspots allow commnecting a camera phone to a laptop is much more affordable. I've made a small servo mounted turn table that mounts under the the helicoptor that holds the hard case holding the camera phone.
While moving, the camera phone can pick up 40-60' in distance solid objects (distinguish a man shaped object in a tree line). It's blurred at some points so you have to stop to count the number of advancing troops. It works well for using things that I have at home.
The issue is making some sort of lower shield under the coptor so it breaks paintballs and doesn't break the rotors. I'm looking at making a frame out of coat hangers and have a sheet of plastic larger than the diameter of the rotors, but it might hurt the flight capabilities. I've shot down my other smaller remote control helicoptor several times with out the rotors breaking, however it's a three shot kill, meaning that if you hit it three times in a row, it's going down.
Anyone use "drones" in scernario games?
If so, what do you use to make a drone?
Any games allow drones?
