Other than the fact that they're ungodly expensive, and that owning/using one would likely get me thrown in the klink without any sort of release date, I think they're great! They have a full scale replica of an Air Force UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) hanging from the ceiling of the Smithsonian Air & Space museum, and I took a few snapshots of it on my visit to DC back in March, and I needed a hand towel to keep the drool from becoming embarrassing.

I think I would need 3-4 hand towels if I went there, it is a shame they have it so high up that one can not see it up close.

If I get to see one of these I would need a box of tissue, but not for drool  innocent
Edit: link removed

I would love to build a drone, maybe someday. I have a feeling my son will build one before I do though  Smiley

Interestingly enough, I did a Google Image search for that image, using the filename, and MY image, above, came up. Smiley

Don't think my budget will streach that far. Do they have an RC version with fireworks?
