  1. Why do we always find a way to remove humans from everything we do? Its depressing and boring. Im sure no one will ever find a way to hack our drones and turn them against us….

  2. Can this drone handle ATC communication autonomously? If not I don't see how this system is flying autonomously.

    Don't get me wrong, I like the progress, but it looks like that the plane was flying itself while you do remotely the ATC community 'by hand'.

  3. U.S regime tests out yet another military drone? don't see any "huge" accomplishment here as the video seems too imply

  4. I'll never fly in a passenger plane without a pilot… I want some one in the front trying to save his own life in case of something going wrong.
