new airho-err....I mean us gov' uav!

The us gov has a new uav, its a giant air hogs plane!
It even uses thrust differentiation! I'd imagine that with jetscream guts and some 3mm foam this would be an easy scale plane.
Somebodys been having too much fun!

LOL, they even call it "Battlehog". That sounds like a name Airhogs would use for some kind of AA dog fight set.

All the more appropriate, since Air Hogs is releasing a twin
engine EDF plane this week! See thread, AH "Screamer" / jetscream.

Hey that's a really cool find, sonicjet. How big is the box? (only partly a joke, as most of those kind of UAVs have special field containers). The mind boggles at considering the number of alkalines required, charge times, etc. With Hellfire missles on board, this would make a very Black Friday for anyone on the wrong end of it ....!

Hey, and with the VTOL capability, it could still be used as a back yard flyer.

With all the recent fuss over defense corporations (e.g. Lockheed) filing lawsuits against toy/model manufacturers over trademarks, maybe AirHogs ought to sue the defense corporation
