Fying drone with paintball pistol...

This is kinda scary although the video itself is a little over-dramatic. I'm glad most criminals aren't this smart.

Interesting, but still overly dramatic. I can't really see one of the kit multicopters carrying a real hand gun let alone being able to handle the recoil. It's possible, but not easy. Back in 2006 some guy was able to mount a Saiga to his rc helicopter

Nevertheless, I've been wondering if it would be possible to mount a Kingman Trainer to a multicopter but I didn't know someone had managed to do it. Thanks for the share.

A remote controlled Helicopter that could hold a water balloon full of paint might make a fun bomber for a scenario game. That would all depend if you could avoid the AA fire.

Back in the late 80's one of the rc mags had a how to on adding paintballs for "bombing". It was an extra servo that fit in a block with a rotating plug similar to a power feed plug. A standard 10 rd tube fit into the other end of the block. You could set your servo to drop one ball (full rotation) or drop all the balls (bomb string). The warplane RC guys loved these things and I think someone started selling a kit.

I can't view the above youtube links right now but, FPSRussia recently did a quadrocopter with a firearm video. It was impressive.

The biggest problem with flying drones in scenario paintball is that most of them fly within paintball range, and I'm not sure how the rules would handle them (i.e. allow them to fly and shoot with impunity or, can they be shot down?). Then, there's the issue of what happens if it falls down on an unexpecting player? If it's powerful enough to hold a water balloon or paintball gun, you probably don't want one to fall on you.

I don't think you can get insurance for flying radio controlled aircrafts over the heads of people. Definitely a big no-no in the RC world.
