Hummingbird

Junk bot project that has taken over a year after I lost some key pieces, bits found during another project so I immediately returned to finish it.
I started out going for a comical " Batteries not Included" type flying bot but as I got towards the end of the build it started to look a bit more nastier.
Confirmed nastiness added after looking at the bot from "Hardware" and a touch of the Imperial drone from TESB
I now built it to be a flying military / Police drone that could be used to open doors with its array of tools and sensors , observe and stun victims with it's stun gun.
It is full size and so it can enter premises and not set off motion detection equipment , is ultra silent and can send back images to a smart phone in the field, nicknamed Hummingbird because of the way it can hover almost silently while working on door locks








Build pics

Main body was a table lamp with the top of a Powerade bottle glued to the base , I got the arms from an old cheap bot toy and at one stage had the tail from a toy helicopter glued to the back, then I lost one of the arms for over a years so it that time it sat in the half done box.
As per usual one years later while looking for summin else I found the arm and immediately halted current project to finish the bot
Added greeblies from an Apache chopper kit broken toy cars and an asthama inhaler thingo made a cool motor
The drill bit was the finishing touch as the bot still needs to be able to crack the old style door locks the drill can be used to core out locks.
Painted flat black with Gunmetal dry brush work and a couple of decals from the goody box
