    Let's see, anti-war protesters thought they saw tiny UFO's buzzing around and spying on them and meanwhile the federal government can't keep track of 3,000 illegal weapons shipped to Mexico in a truck? Is there a comprehension disconnection or is it just the drugs?

    From the link:
    They'd get blown off course by wind outside. To be most useful for spying in closed environments, they'd have to operate in silence. The versions considered in the article, going into caved, flying in and out of collapsed structures seem to be hype for sales, maybe to stimulate interest by potential purchaser/investors with an eye for some present unknown use. Reminds me of the way manufacturers of small drones have seeked to generate markets where surveillance is a work product like sheriffs departments, border patrolling, etc, in lieu of or in advance of sending in people.
