FTFA: What was thought to be a UFO flying over Leicester, England has been proven to be merely a flying model quadcopter controlled by a local hobbyist in a park.

It wasn't thought to be a UFO. It was a UFO. And now it is an IFO.

Hint to idiots everywhere:

If it got helicopter style landing gears and few propellers, it's human made, or at worse made in China...

They're also for pizza delivery:

Although that would be an "hexcopter" since it has six rotors instead of four.
And it doesn't need a remote control or won't need one since it's from the university's AI research group working on autonomous vehicles and (soccer-playing) robots.

FTA: They reported that, "Several witnesses in the area reported observing a strange flying object hovering above the Barwell and Burbage Common areas of the region. Object was said to be carrying blue, red and white lights and behaving strangely."

I LOVE ripping dumbass "UFO = ALIENS!!!" types when they mention that the alien craft they saw was courteous enough to use running lights.

I have the Parrot AR Drone.. very fun.
I plan on upgrading to the x650 next

My drone has a cool set of LED's at the bottom.. and It can reach pretty damn high up.. at night, you might think it was something fishy.

FTA "They were too small to be any kind of aircraft or helicopters."

Clearly not. They were too small to be any kind of manned aircraft, however.
