DIY Drones

I just ran into the ArduCopter and AeroQuad projects. It really is remarkable just how easy it currently is to construct drones. Sure, these aren't up to the standard of military equipment, but some of these are getting amazingly close. Another few years and the open source movement will have some readily available plans for drones every bit as capable of photographing things at a distance. It would be almost trivial for any nation to hire some decent engineers to piggy back on that to make a true army of them.

Here is an example, a pre-programmed 19km flight of a DIY drone:

I also refuse to believe any UFO story at all now that these things are flying around at night:
