Half-Life ‘City Scanner’ Drone In Real Life #HalfLife

Kudos to the maker Valplushka for not only building this thing IRL but for also finding some great abandoned spaces and field settings in which to stage the video that really gives the City Scanner context. Full specs on the drone below. And I’m already looking forward to the next installment!

Made from scratch in a life-size copy of the drone City Scanner of computer game Half-Life 2. The length 80 cm, height 55 cm. The base frame for quadrocopters scheme is made of carbon fiber Profile 15X15 mm frame size 39 cm. Weight: 1771 g. Flight time 11 minutes. The main materials used are: carbon fiber (carbon), expanded polystyrene. Flight Controller DJI Naza-M Lite without gps, motors AX-2810Q-750KV Brushless Quadcopter Motor, Afro ESC 30Amp, three-bladed screws 9 “Battery: 3300mAh 4S 30C.
He did two months, not regularly, at home. Stable flies, almost like quadrocopters classical scheme, but still fly better in the absence of wind.
Video shot on the GoPro camera 3 of Black, mounted in Vegas Pro 13.0, no processing, no special effects were used.
Initially, the flash has been installed, but quickly burned out, had to put the effect of the game, but I plan to fix this problem in the near future, and set the camera to the video transmitter.
