    For some reason I thought this was incredibly funny.
    Poor Brits... they have a bad Drone...
    We have a few bigger problems... The Stryker and the Osprey... and the XM-29. :fire:

    I'm sorry to say that I found this statement to be so funny it made me laugh very very hard.

    I refused to fly on the Concorde because of Lucas electrical components used on it.

    Lucas, Prince of Darkness!

    I wonder if they are a subcontractor for the SA80?

    If the phoenix is the "bugger off" then the SA80 is a "right bleedin bastard"

    There's plenty of guys there flying planes with wireless pen-cams attached, great videos.

    Oh, they reuse the planes too.:evil:

    Search the archives; I believe the popular name for the SA80 is the "Civil Servant":


    You can't fire it, and you can't make it work!
