In this paper about robocopters the author discusses the challenges of the integration of robotics, artificial intelligence, digitalisation, virtualisation and multicopter aviation technologies driven by the consumer market. After a linguistic decomposition of the word robocopter the robocopter will be defined as a “flying tool” or “flying robot” using, as a multicopter, the typical aviation technologies of a helicopter. A comparison shows the current differences between helicopters and typical unmanned multicopters. From an economic perspective, the quadcopter is most successful as a camera drone, driven by hobbyists like drone racers and photographers. With the use of first-person-view (FPV) glasses during a flight a philosophical dimension occurs, because, in our consciousness, the idea arises that “I am flying” instead of the drone. In Austria, a license from the Austro Control agency is necessary to legally store pictures and videos on a microchip on a drone; therefore, the legal regulations for drones are discussed in a short overview. Robocopters as flying tools with an extended level on autonomy are the next step in automation. But there is also a danger, especially in military applications discussed and shown in various video examples.
