Russia: See replica of Half-Life 2's City Scanner drone in flight

Russian Federation, Svetliy, Saratov Region
May 29, 2016 at 14:49 GMT +00:00 · Published

A resident of Svetliy in Saratov Region showed off a full-size copy of the City Scanner drone from the legendary Half-Life 2 video game, Wednesday.

Valentin Demchenko made his own City Scanner using mostly carbon and geofoam. The drone, which took two months to build, is 80 centimetres (31 inches) in length and 55 centimetres (21 inches) in height, and can stay airborne for up to 11 minutes.

Demchenko said the idea of constructing a flying replica of the City Scanner came to him after he realised he wanted to make something "impossible." He addressed an online fans forum asking whether the idea would be interesting and received a positive response.

The City Scanner is a flying security camera used by one of the organisations in the Half-Life 2 video game.
