    Impressive! But these things are just for spying, they aren’t armed? So no threat to birds of prey 😉

    PS – they’re actually small ornithopters, yes? Especially impressive!

    Just for spying, yes. But one countermeasure for the enemy would be to shoot-on-sight, which would be tough on the bird population.

    Ah, OK. Hadn’t thought of that! 🙁
