I'm helping some of the NMSU Capstone students cut a mold for a UAV they want to build (I have the closest free CNC machine for them to use) The UAV is probably going to do something very important (roll eyes) like see what effect butterfly flatulence has on the Ozone layer.

The mold is a no brainer so I'm going to offer them a few suggestions to add a little zip to they're drone.

Neat! Might be nice in tight airspace......"15Whiskey, you have slow traffic in front of you at 1 mile at 4 oclock, you are number 2 for landing. Acknowledge?"
"Tower, this is 15 Whiskey, acknowledge traffic at one mile, handled and now clear. Request immediate clearance for landing."

The Tiger turrets are a good start but if you want to get it moving at a good clip you should face the flak battery aft as well. Every gram of thrust helps.
