    Look what happened at work today. We broke a 176 million dollar RC plane. Wonder if the operators jump out of the chair in front of the joystick right before impact?

    Navy UAV crashes.

    i heard on npr that the navy got them from the airforce or something. the air force unloaded them because manned aircraft are cheaper to operate......the good ol' expendable meat servo.

    I hope it didn't have anything to do with the network outage we had today? and I thought I was having a bad day at work
