  1. Dear readers,

    A typical hobby plane can be purchased online on Amazon.What a big deal in this new invention?

    In India NAL is already developing tiny planes for survival may 2 decade before.In west there are nano size flying machine some even smaller than domestic fly.

    I would appreciate,if team focus design small flying machine could be used in hostage crisis ,enemy terrain,rescue mission,disaster zones etc with more flying capacity and data acquiring.

    Jai Hind
