Tiny, Pirate-Hunting Helicopter Is the Newest Terrifying Way to Get Tased

Illustration for article titled Tiny, Pirate-Hunting Helicopter Is the Newest Terrifying Way to Get Tased

You thought the semi-auto shotgun taser was scary? Ha! Have fun avoiding a nice zapping with the Shadowhawk, a 7-foot mini-copter that shoots stun batons at bad guys. Or shotgun shells and grenades.

What an embarrassing way to die, right? But you can't hold it against yourself—the Shadowhawk is a sophisticated little devil: capable of speeds of 70 MPH in heavy winds, all while recording live video footage. Kit Up! reports the diminutive dogfighter is currently looking for pirates in Africa, as well as American criminals. So if you rob a deli and hear a buzzing sound nearby, hold onto your pants, because there's a chance you're about to get hit with a kinetic stun baton launched from a remote-controlled helicopter.
