Its illegal anyway, no gun is allowed to have a solenoid trigger, its classified as a full automatic. Hell that thing could propel itself if he maxed out the solenoid.Insanely illegal, or it will be soon. I mean this is a nightmare for so many different groups of people that otherwise disagree on nearly everything.
Show me, I think your smoking crack. The definition of a "machine gun", (there is no federal definition for "full automatic"), says the weapon is a machine gun if it fires more then one round with a single pull of the trigger. It says nothing about solenoids or any other electronic means.Its illegal anyway, no gun is allowed to have a solenoid trigger, its classified as a full automatic.

Not to mention the FAA. I'm pretty sure that any kind of "flying gun" would violate their regs as well, so that's at least two federal agencies that are probably going to be unhappy with him.This falls under the law that makes remotely controlled or automated weapons illegal. Making it airborne just compounds the issue. I bet the guy who posted this video is already talking to the ATF, and pleading ignorance to the law.
Same here! Well said!As a drone and gun enthusiast, I wanna both congratulate the guy on the absurdity and technical accomplishment of it, and also smack him in the back of the head for tarnishing the image of both in an age when they are getting a bad wrap as it is!
With people afraid that someone beyond visual range is going to kill them with a drone, now some serious law smack down is sure to ensue!
I would also like to see the video to find out how it compensates for recoil. Maybe using thrust direction adjustments or with a novel mounting system?Steve -
You might have seen it or maybe you can find it, I can't, I just looked. But there is a video that I think was from Feb 2015 that shows Germans with a rather large drone and it has an HK sub-machine gun attached. The drone was big enough that there was almost zero recoil.
