    Been in the cards for awhile now. There've been multiple close calls between drones and commercial aircraft taking off or landing at airports in the UK and US. The airports are responding with drone frequency jammers, but that's a dicy gamble since you can't jam that many freqs without impinging on emergency services. If I were Obama, I'd start taking the train.

    well terrorists have not been using drones to fly around airports. rc radios have a limited band they operate on and they only have a range of less then a mile usually unless they have z whole different setup.

    To me with the better commercial drones this would happen one day. Sadly it looks like it has happened!

    Man up and be a martyr. No virgins for you using drones.

    reserving space for the hijacking of an ISIS drone by the US Military and it's subsequent use against those who launched it.

    Until then, say hello to our little friend.

    That does sound pretty cool honestly.

    A Quadcopter carrying a 0.5 lbs of HME might be effective propaganda, but one Mad Max VBIED carrying a ton of explosives is still magnitudes more dangerous.
