Even if you destroy the structure completely, as long as you keep the fittings intact you can very easily cut yourself a new airframe out of foam board.
I know... that's plan B

As an Israeli innovation, that can't be far off.

Weakened men boiled soup made from the leaves of lemon trees picked in the Greek Orthodox compound--gathered under the menacing sight of a remote-controlled sniper rifle bolted to the top of a crane at the edge of Manger Square.

One of my favourite sites to keep up with weapon development :)

I can definitely imagine a future UCAV that is basically a mid sized quadrotor with a 22LR rifle, where the idea is that it would not shoot from the air but fly to hard-to-reach concealed positions in order to be more accurate.

100 metres would be a realistic range for 22LR according to the Russians, more than enough stand-off and with a good suppressor it would be practically undetectable.

Heh I waste too much time on such stuff...


Research isn't a waste of time ;)

Yeah same conclusion here. Though I think you can get good enough stabilisation in flight

flight starts at 1:18

according to the Russians
and Israelis

Impressive!

In that case, ditch the rifle, fit one of these, fly right up to the enemy and shoot them in the face.

Nice find... though not this particular UAV, but the site itself

It seems there's a lot of interest in UAVs and money invested in them. Have you considered making custom parts for them ? Like for example gimbals/pantilt units?
