Okay, not the usual kind of aviation video - but I still like it a lot. It was posted over at our forum, and I thought that you guys might be interested in this.

Well they do thanks NYPD, TSA and Park Rangers. I could see Homeland Security being interested in this considering how close they came to a number of landmarks.

cool video but i've gotta say it's one of the stupidest ideas i've seen in some time. the harbor and rovers are home to a lot of uncontrolled flying and i personally would not like to get a errant RC airplane through my windscreen!

@mario wouldn't doubt that the technology on that airplane is similar to some of the UAVs in use in Iraq right now.
