I had a thought today - how long before the first assassination attempt via drone by a civilian or terrorist group? I think it's just a matter of ability and motivation coming together. I say within 5 years.
That's going to have a profound impact on regulation.


Hi Russell,
Wow, you’re right. Hadn’t thought of that. I tell ya, we have such a soft underbelly in this country and are so vulnerable to terrorism.

My understanding of the available hardware / software is that would be entirely possible.

What they call “FPV” (First-person view) is now readily available for model aircraft enthusiast. Real time in flight video down linked to the pilot. Many of the multi rotor model aircraft could easily support the weight of a gyro stabilized handgun bore sighted to an onboard video. Mission success wouldn’t necessarily be guaranteed but highly probable. Hmm… wouldn’t even need to be a gun… grenade or pipe-bomb then, as in horse shoes, close counts.

But, ya, just a matter of time<ng>

Regards,
Tom Charlton
