Pretty good RoF and stability on that test mount.
Amazing what you can do when the test mount is bolted down and ballasted by earth...

Hence the qualifier of "on that test mount," but it's still a pretty good performance.

For the inevitable robot revolt/alien invasion (which ever comes first):

Dependance on cheap quadrotors will grow and when the quadrotor is downed by a sophisticated adversary, in the first 30 seconds of combat, the squad will be mentally lost. In the next 30secs the mortars will rain down from where the quadrotor took off and the squad will be physically lost.

A squad needs a armed, endurance fixed wing craft which does not break the horizon until far away from the squad.

Then an second armed UAV, multi- (10-12) shot VTOL, is launched when a target/squad mission is established by data from the relatively higher flying, EM hardened, fixed wing armed RSTA bird.

The fixed wing armed/RSTA bird is largely to defend against mortar/short range artillery/ UAV launch sites and threat UAVs themselves.
