RotorConcept SWAT Copter Looks Like it Could Do Serious Damage

Every time I visit CES, I like to dig around looking for something other than the usual big-brand announcements, and this year is no exception. My favorite off-the-beaten-path thing of the year so far? The ID-1SWAT copter from RotorConcept.

This bad-ass flying machine isn’t one of those cheap little plastic helicopters you can buy at your local hobby shop. This beast can fly up to 1 mile away and 2000 feet into the air. It’s even got metal CNC rotor blades, so you don’t want to stick your finger in there unless you want to risk amputation. Flight time is as high as 15 minutes per charge, too.

The thing was designed by IgarashiDesign, and is based on an awesome flying machine concept they did a couple of years back. The big blue beast looks like no helicopter I’ve ever seen. Never mind the fact that the gyro-stabilized copter is strong enough to lift a 7 oz. payload, the gyro-stabilized chopper also has a wireless video camera on board, so you can use it for not-so-secret spy missions. (It’s not the most inconspicuous thing you’ve ever seen). Check out the video I grabbed below to see it in action:

The guys are RotorConcept are taking CES orders for just $299 (USD), but they list the regular price for the SWAT copter as $499. Hopefully, that’s just to make the CES price sound good, and the price will drop on their website at some point. Either way, head on over to RotorConcept’s website for more details and more video footage.
