This Carbon Fibre Racing Drone Is Virtually Indestructible

A sampling of the drone’s horrifyingly futuristic potential: University of Cincinnati engineers have developed AI-equipped military drones that, in test, can destroy human pilots in combat. The USPS is testing out home delivery via tiny propellered machines. And on IndieGogo, Aerodyne-RC is hawking the impossibly lightweight, weather-resistant Nimbus, built tough enough that you could crash the carbon fibre aircraft into a brick wall.

We don’t recommend using it for tactical surveillance, but you can mount a GoPro on it all the same.
