    Experimental Rescue Drone Successfully Drops Flotation Device To Two Swimmers

    Gear  /  Video
    This is the onboard video from a Little Ripper UAV that's currently being tested as a lifesaving device on Australian beaches. In the video, the drone successfully drops a floatation device to two swimmers who got stranded in the rough surf at Lennox Head in New South Wales, Australia.
    "The Little Ripper UAV certainly proved itself today, it is an amazingly efficient piece of lifesaving equipment and a delight to fly. I was able to launch it, fly it to the location, and drop the pod all in about one to two minutes. On a normal day that would have taken our lifeguards a few minutes longer to reach the members of the public."
