Forget about all the bad things you could do with one of these planes and imagine for a minute some of the good things. There are agricultural UAV's operating in California as we speak. http://www.thecalifornian.com/article... HoneyComb is working to give farmers better information about their fields and crops so that they can use less fertilizer, fewer pesticides and pump less water. This means less spray on our food and less farm runoff in our rivers. Farmers make more money by reducing overhead and waste while we get better food. If that wasn't good enough there are well paid jobs operating these UAV's and a host of other positive environmental impacts from precision farming.
