The ScanCam 200 is the eagle eye you would want for surveillance security of your property. Out of all of our helicopter projects, this one has the most stylish launching mechanism. The autonomous perimeter security system is actually a small UAV quad-rotored drone. ScanCam 200 can be remotely launched from its mailbox like climate controlled hangar any time of the day or night.
Capable of autonomous launch, flight, and landing, the quadrotor drone takes off and sends out live video feed to its remote operation center. The drone surveys the ground below from the air and can navigate on its own from one point to the other. When the mission is completed, it returns to its hanger or a predefined landing spot. The mailbox-like hangar is also the docking station where ScanCam 200 recharges its battery and waits for its next launch. Although it’s a commerical product, we’re posting it for your DIY helicopter inspiration.
