looking for rugged, approx. 8' winspan to carry 5-10lb. payload
The bad guys will get their information where they can find it. And if that
is on a news group like this, then this is where they will look. Though I
doubt they have or will find anything here they don't already know, why
leave cheese lying around for the rat to chew? Continue to do your thing
and leave the intelligence stuff to the intelligence people.
On a similar note, an article in the August 7 L.A. Times had this little
"Remote-controlled planes are "no longer a hobby-shop business," said Maj.
General Wilbert D. Pearson Jr., commander of Edwards Air Force Base. "It's
now a serious military operation.""
The article name was "Unmanned Aircraft Gaining The Pentagon's Confidence"
and the author was Peter Pae. It also stated that a third of the military
fleet of aircraft may be remote-controlled by 2010. Looks to me like more
laws, rules and whatever are just around the corner. And considering who
made the statement and where he's from, the guys in Kalifornia might be
among the first to find out.
Wonder what hoops the AMA is lining up to jump through for this one? Might
pose some good questions for the candidates as well.
