It is truly amazing how far technology is getting.

I can tell you, I started getting into R/C aircraft about 15 years ago. You would get laughed right out of the store if you wanted long run time battery power stuff. It was too heavy, too big, too impractical.

Now battery power is the standard and the planes/helis run just as well as the nitro and gas stuff for the average user. If I can get a fully acrobatic helicopter that I can run in my living room, I have no doubt that the military has some ridiculously crazy stuff.

I've flown R/C models on and off since '81 and converted to electric power in '07 (also flew control line models way back in the late '50's / early '60's). The improvements in battery and motor power density (vs. weight) have been quite dramatic. I agree that the govt. would have really over the top versions of unmanned aircraft (large and small).
