Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

Anybody have any experience with these, such as the Preditor? I was casually looking for job openings in the aviation industry and found a job flying these things (as a civilian). How cool would that be? It says you need at least a private and instrument rating, and that a commerical and instructor ratings is preferable. It also mentions that you need 2 years flying UAVs or something copareable. Do you think R/C planes count? By the time I graduate college, I'll have ten years full scale flying experience and 6 years R/C. The job also requires travle up to 6 months away from home, and the ability to abtain a sercurity clearance. Sounds like pretty cool stuff to me! May not be the best for a family life however. What do you guys think?
