You knew it was coming.
I think those are the landing gear.
I`m thinking about getting one just for
checking the cows quickly at calving time.

FBI has already stung a home-grown jihadi, Rezwan Ferdhaus, who obtained two autonomous GPS-guided drones and scoped out an attack on the Pentagon and Capitol with the drones loaded with C4.
