Well, of course they’re flying here in the U.S.! How else are the UAV pilots going to learn how to fly them?

Point taken, though. Border Patrol has been using UAV surveillance since well before 9/11.

I saw a video last year, (can’t remember what site it was at), of some guys building their own drone type jobs but they had firearms mounted on ‘em and were flying around shooting up a storm! The video also demonstrated them firing from a hover! Now that is getting scary if just some advanced RC hobby guys can build ‘drones’ that can zoom around and take out somebody on the ground with gunfire from above. I don’t remember what sort of range they had/have as I don’t know anything about the RC hobby. Anybody involved with the RC hobby that might know anything about these homemade ‘drones’ I saw?
