Some experts here may be able to answer that. Is this an off the shelf commercial RPV?

I think we ought to introduce R/C Combat to the US Military! A nice 1/10th scale combat ship run up to intercept the drone.

The picture I saw on MSN looked like a MIG 21 aircraft configured to spray chemicals. The clip was very short so I might be mistaken.

The news media operates on paranoid hysteria. Scare tactics have a big impact on the naive public. Like you said, "always worked, always will".
There's the truth and then there's the news. They are NOT the same.
