RC quad helps surveying buildings destroyed by earthquake

As you might have heard, a few days ago a strong earthquake hit the North of Italy, destroyed lots of industrial buildings and caused several deaths. On an Italian news portal there is a video of a RC quad (cannot recognize the model, but maybe someone else can) used to survey collapsed buildings, trying to spot survivors and assess damage.

Unfortunately the embed code from the news site doesn't work here, so if you want to see the video you have to go to the site (from second 42 to 57): http://video.repubblica.it/dossier/terremoto-emilia-20-maggio/il-ca...

Interesting, I don't recognize that one. It looks simple and small, not like a "professional" SAR drone, but it only has a GoPro on the bottom.

The funny thing is that the propellers are pointing all down. And doesn't look the one depicted in the image on the SUASnews site
