Toy drones used to record pro-Morsi sit-ins

Supporters of deposed Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi have found an innovative way to publicise their sit-ins – using toy drones. A camera is attached to the remote-controlled toy, which flies above the protests at Rabaa square and films and photographs people. The small drone is banned as a propaganda tool, but activists have brought in some from outside Egypt. Al Jazeera’s Jane Ferguson reports from Rabaa square, Cairo.

    not really…no. it couldn’t carry much….and sophisticated targeting systems are built into the missiles themselves… that’s why they cost so much. If you were a rocket scientist you could make it carry a small amount of high explosive. that’s about it. but that really wasn’t the point now; was it?

    Good job, Egypt army. Fire these pigs from their workplaces (if they have any, that is) once the footage is viewed and they are identified.

    Egypts economy was in disastrous condition after 1 year of Morsi’s "rule". He card more about gathering jihadists for Syria and other places than about his country. LOL!!! There is footage of that punk ass shaking hands with Israeli military officers and politicians, BEFORE he became "president". Now, things are in the right order again.
