    How about arming a RC Chopper or a RC Plane with a slingshot. I think anyone could built it esp thoses who has the knowledge(remote control, camera, electronics etc.)and the resources like some video I found they arm their RC with rockets(fire cracker).

    Maybe it could be done, but it'd be a one shot deal and not very accurate because the contracting bands would throw the chopper way off balance if they don't just crash it. And where could you put a SS on an RC chopper?

    That seems like a accident waiting to happen. The slingshot has a lot a recoil and will throw the heli off balance. Also Reloading mid air is going to be quite hard.

    Maybe something like this instead of a slingshot?
    At least go steal this guy's laptop to get some ideas.

    I would be surprised if no one is launching drones with big slingshots.
    Model Airplane/RC air guys have been doing that since the beginning.

    I think autonomous ammo would be pretty sweet.:D

    I'd have to agree that some kind of gun with a more typical magazine would be more handy than a ss.

    As a rc heli pilot myself I'm sure that unless u went for a huge nitro powered heli the concept would never work as would throw the balance off so bad you would most likely ditch the heli.

    Maybe you could mount a Nerf-gun to a quad/hexacopter? :)
