Large model airplane:  $2,000
GPS and autopilot system: $1,000
Explosives and shrapnel: $25

Of course, if you wanted to get fancy, you could make a jet powered one for $5,000.  It would have a greater payload capacity, but much shorter range.

Operational altitude is 80 to 100 meters.    You'd need a *VERY* tight choke, and have to be right under it, to have a decent chance of hitting it.
