If you are a lover of the peaceful use of drones then this video would certainly make you anxious. In a video, that has been released to the youtube, an 18 year old student of Mechanical Engineering has shown how a gun can be fixed on the top of a custom made drone and then displayed its fire power. The drone is standing in the trees and fires four shots. Amazingly, the drone has sufficient control to re-position itself after the recoil.
This video entitled as “Flying Gun” was released on July 10 and to the date it has received more than two million views. This video has not only attracted the fascination of the viewers but also ire of the security authorities. The 18 year old student and his father are adamant that the footage was made at the family estate and that they have not broken any laws.
However, the security authorities are taking the issue seriously. According to them, their foremost duty is to protect the public safety and they deem this video as alarming. This flying gun video can be regarded as irresponsible which can be subsequently adopted by the terrorists or other bad guys. FAA has also got involved in the matter and launched a probe into the fact if any laws have been broken and if there are any criminal statutes involved.
