Default Rado Control Roach

Found this on the news today. This dude goes into place where a dog can't. Sends back info on folks that are buried in earthquakes. I wonder if we could put one of these guys in the cockpit of a plane.

Crank is always good for a off the beaten path post. Maybe that roach would have helped me find a 50cc size plane I lost a couple of months ago.......

David - First I heard about that. Was it a fly away, or go down in a forest? Few years ago in Miami, a guys large Extra went in, and looked like it was only 800 - 1000 ft. away. Never found it, he had his buddy's slow flying J-3 looking, then a chopper. It should have been a simple find, everyone had sight on it.

I hear, and could probably find where the CIA has some kind of mini-helicopters, they can go right in someones house if window is open, and look around. Area 54 has flying saucers, so anything is possible. I think the next major skirmish we have, where things get serious, we are going to see some real stuff, as amazing as the Stealth planes were at the Gulf war.

Here is a Fire Ant. You can see its head, it has choppers. We have 'em too, I use a service, has to spray about every 30 months. More active in wet weather. To have some fun with ants, just go to a pile of them, take a cup of that pile of ants, put it on a pile of ants about 10 or 20' away. They will destroy each other, it is total war.
