Black Hornet PRS

The following mods are recommended for use with this mod.

CBA3 & ACE3 mods are recommended for interacting with the Drone.
Summary of the information from FLIR:
The Black Hornet PRS gives the dismounted soldier an ability to have immediate covert situational awareness (SA) of their surrounding area and the target they are moving towards.
Autohover is functioning but is a little weird due to the small size of the Black Hornet PRS.

If you would like to help, contact W. Nichols.
Contributions & Credits

Thanks to OnlyAnderson for his permission to use his mod as our base to get this one moving forward; as well as providing us with the original model from his files to see what we could do to make it work in the manner that many of us have wanted for a long time.
A huge shout out to the following people for taking time and working towards a common goal. You all did a great job and it has been fun.

3D Model - ToxicSludge Thanks for building the 3d model of this drone. Without his help I am not entirely sure we would even have a version to the point it is at right now.

Lastly for the people that have spent time working on the configs and doing proof of concept work on the original mod; you guys have been a huge help. They are as follows:

Lewis - early configs for the concept work on original mod

theebu - Final config work

W. Nichols - Flight Model Dynamics & Code Repository + Builds

dedmen - Intercept/C++/Python Libraries

Thanks to Mr. Mustache (A3 Hub Discord) for his additional screenshot with the drone being released near the vehicle.

I've not worked on this mod in quite some time. In the beginning it was me being stubborn in attempting to get it to function properly. We got some great things out of this as far as being able to pack it in a bag without a drone backpack and we got the size correct. But some how we have never been able to overcome the issue with steering sensitivity. We've looked at it from every angle and whenever we thought we had it beat it always creates another issue somehow.

The guys with SPS have apparently found something that works and their version is locked to BLUFOR like mine. Please feel free to drop by their mod (SPS BlackHornet PRS) and use it. I use it myself in some missions.

This thing is cool but incredibly hard to steer. Can someone tell me how to decrease th sensitivity of the steering?

Hello, I liked the mod I am interested in updating it, it is possible that I can upload this mod in a mod pack where I test things and upload it to the workshop (without earning the merit), obviously I will wait for your permission.

@Engieman It has some weight issues with it. I have not updated it in a while and have been thinking of pulling it off the workshop since the SPS guys have a version up as well.

how do you use the mod when i put the drone down it seems to be stuck in the ground
Nichols  [author] Feb 28, 2020 @ 6:03am 

No and no plans for it to do that...its only meant for close area situational awareness and final movements into a target location.
