Drones 2020 The Good Guys
Drones 2020! Drones are doing remarkably well for us humans both as great toys and tools. Soldiers use them in battle for short range reconnaissance, missile attacks, spying on enemy positions. They are used in delivery of small packages, search and rescue operations, filming and photography and just about any kind of flying for fun, professional work like site survey for builders, geographic mapping and more. Featured below are several drones of 2020.
Drones The Bad Guys
Drones could play the bad-ass character as well. Take the role played by the military drones called the Predator and The Reaper. These guys could deliver very hot cargo like Hellfire missiles that could turn a good sized target into ashes or millions of pieces. Now that is a bad bad drone! Meaning too bad for the target or the receiving end of their payloads. The Predator and Reaper drones can carry 4 Hellfire missiles and two additional 500-pound bombs. They can fly as high as 60,000 feet and be in the air for better than 30-40 hours! Sad to say they are NOT powered by batteries…yet!
Drones 2020 The Better Guys
Now let us take a look at the better drones. Okay, drones can do many constructive things. They can take pictures, deliver packages, carry human passengers, create super aerial videos, spy on shady neighbors, catch intruders, serve as sensors as for weather monitoring. I mean the uses of drones are endless in the hands of really creative minds.
