ZeroCorpse: Would it not just be easier for them to buy a bunch of remote-control airplanes, strap IEDs to them, and just fly them around and smash them into the drones?I mean, I'm no military genius but I came up with that in a couple seconds. I see the hobbyist RC planes around here all the time. Some of them are very tiny, and some are about half the size of the real thing. They fly easily enough. Some have cameras in them. I'm not even an RC hobbyist and I know all this.So it would seem to me that a bunch of loonies who know how to make IEDs in their cellar would make the obvious leap of logic and use RC planes to deliver their payload and patrol their skies.Not that I want to help these assholes, but I can't believe they haven't thought of this.For that matter, I don't know why the military spends so much on the drones when they could do the same; Load up regular RC planes with a payload and have soldiers and pilots handle them from a remote location. I could cut the drone budget by millions, I'm sure, and get the same effect.The terrorists would not believe that a 1/3 scale model of a Piper J3 Cub is going to kill them.
Abuse Liability: Do even bad journalists right this way?
FullMetalPanda: What if we were being lied to this whole time and the drones are actually being piloted by naval trained dolphins? So even if they hacked the drones, nothing would happen because the dolphins are inside flying the drones?Study it out!
