Ok…Ok… The CyPhy PARC Drone (I hate the lose use of that term) can’t really stay in the air forever. Almost, though. The PARC hexacopter is what is known as a Persistent Aerial Reconnaissance and Communications (PARC) drone. That basically means that it can stay in the air recording video day and night without the need of more fuel or a battery.

So how does the PARC spy copter work? No magic here, sorry folks. It uses a tethered power/data source via a microfilament line. This tiny, very difficult to see, line feeds the copter electricity while sending video data back to land. If the line should break the PARC has a backup battery so it can land safely.

The CyPhy PARC is perfect for watching your drug house or your meth lab office 24-7. No mention of pricing or availability yet but I want one.
