Burglars use low-noise helicopter for recon and surveillance

Burglars use low-noise helicopter for recon and surveillance

Police in Tapai, Taiwan report on two men using a remotely operated helicopter equipped with a camera to commit more than 10 burglaries. In what sounds quite similar to much current research on UAVs, the burglars used a low-noise helicopter to fly to the window of an apartment and send surveillance photos back to their computer. If the photos revealed there was no one in the apartment, the men would allegedly break in and carry out the burglary. Following the arrest of one man, police are still searching for the second burglar.

You can find some more info on DIYDrones or the China Post.

Technology is like a knife. We can use it for cutting vegetables or for killing humans as well.
