Default Should We Be Scared????

Should we be scared that Iran is getting into drones? LOL>> I don't think this will fly too well or too often! First it has Chinese engines on it, so we all know how those run! Probably won't stay running long enough to launch. Even if it did launch, most twins crash due to loss of an engine. Second is too much drag and guaranteed to wreck if it looses one of those reliable running Chinese engines!! LOL>>>>

Only on the steep vertical decent right prior to flutter and coming apart in the air.

Yes the second pic is an entirely new thing...

I don't look forward to small autonomous drones being commonly used as soldiers but its coming. I was fairly young when Robocop and Terminator came out. I never really thought I would live to see small roaming killing machines... but there is no denying its very close to reality now.

There is so much potential for good, and bad.... in some tech of our time..

I'm more concerned about American drones.
Soon to be flying over your house, operated by the police, FBI and who knows who else. There will be, in the near future armed drones flying over America,. This is already in the planning stages.
I am not concerned with Iran's drones.
