Quads on BBC Countryfile

Did anyone see the interesting (but very brief article) on Countryfile (Sunday 13th Jan) showing how Staffordshire Police are using Quadcopters to search for Deer poachers on Cannock Chase?

I watched it again on iPlayer and tried to work out what they were using but the shots were too dark - looked like some sort of custom job though with bespoke Ground Station software

Some of these Police forces using these are paying (or I should say, the Council Tax payer is paying ) up  £10k  each for the "Pr"o gear that has mushroomed on the back of  FPV !!
Let's be careful out there.
SAFETY is.. NO accident.

Claims >25min flight times - it does look pretty light - too light, those arms barely look thick enough to hold the motors, but then I guess they';re not doing flips!
