Think those fancy unmanned aerial combat vehicles are only for the armed forces? Think again! All you need are a handgun, an RC helicopter and a lack of common sense and you too will have the ability to smite your enemies from on high like Zeus tossing out lightning bolts.
Jim Simmons, presumably unhappy that his previous shootings required him to get off the couch, rigged up a Springfield 1911-A .45 caliber automatic to his toy helicopter, just for the hell of it. For those of you not familiar with guns, this type is favored by law enforcement and the military for its stopping power and shootability. If you absolutely must have a flying handgun, this is the one.
While you may think a remote controlled helicopter shooting blindly as it flies through downtown or wherever is hilarious enough already, Simmons hooked up a camera to the helicopter so he could, you know, aim and make it harder to argue against premeditation.
If you've ever flown an RC helicopter, even one not carrying a sidearm, you're likely well aware of two things they do very well: crash and explode. Often simultaneously. Combine that with the inherent difficulty of control, and an armed helicopter seems just as likely to take out its owner as anyone else, though if it was caught on video it would clean up on YouTube.
