Is it a Bird? Is it a Plane? No, it's the Army's Latest Four Million Dollar Spy Drone Disguised as a Hummingbird, Measuring Just 16 Centimetres
A pocket-sized spy drone disguised as a hummingbird has been unveiled by a major Pentagon contractor measuring just 16 centimetres and weighing less than an AA battery.
The mini spy plane can fly up to 11 miles an hour and took five years to develop at a cost of $4million.
Army chiefs hope to use the drone’s tiny camera to spy on enemy positions in war zones without arousing detection and eventually deploy it into both rural and urban environments.'
