Re: Looks like the RCMP is getting into FPV.

Yeah, saw this in the newspaper this morning. Over $30,000??? Is this heli really that advanced or is it like the old story of the government paying $1,000 for a toilet seat?

For that price. I can build 4 of the exact same rigs. The gear they use is available to anyone. You get a nice case for everything though.

I have a feeling that cost covers the heli, camera/camera mount support, maintenance and training.
Current models: Hobbico Nexstar Electric, Parkzone Spitfire Mk IX , several micros/small helis. Nothing nitro/gas.
