The device with remote control has 2.4G radio transmitter and carried out live recording of the event which was monitored on a black berry phone.

Here is what the inventor has to say (Excerpts from PunchNG);

He said, “This type of drone, if fully developed, could be used by farmers. You can deploy it to fly round a farm of about 20 hectares and you will monitor what is going on on the farm right from where the remote control is.
“It can be used to monitor traffic situation and in case of flooding,  the drone can monitor the area.
“I spent over N20,000.00 to build this but I can do something with a bigger capacity and which will stay for more hours in the air if fund is available.”
In a related development, a group of final year students of Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma also developed a car as their undergraduate project. The car is names ESCKANLLANTE .
