Palm-Size Drones Buzz Over Battlefield

The ‘Black Hornet’ is a small drone that weighs just over half an ounce. Small enough to fit in a soldiers pocket and as easy to operate as a radio, this little spy camera can fly for about 20 minutes. Up close it looks like a tiny helicopter, in the air it might look like a dragonfly. At about 30 ft it is almost invisible.

Using GPS technology the ‘Black Hornet’ can find a target and return home.

Unveiled to the public just recently, ‘Black Hornets’ are currently in use by British forces.
