    It's truly not difficult. You can even buy kits at diydrones.com


    Tightly regulated? Not at all. You can get actually quite large with a homemade drone before it even falls under regulation. Even at that point, I don't think the terrorists care what the regulations are.
    True. But what makes this scenario unlikely is that RC 'drones' easily purchasable by commercial users have been around for years, and in fact have been used in a few attempted terrorist attacks around the world. The reason they have not become popular is that if you have managed to actually acquire enough usable explosives to carry out an attack, it makes much more sense to use conventional vectors for delivery (car, package, mail, etc) than it does to risk it on an airborne delivery. The difficult part as you mentioned is getting explosives and not getting caught in the intervening period between when your raw materials are acquired and you begin planning your attack.

Dont get me wrong, I know we have enemies, but is this war on terror really worth...
    No. As Ron White said: "Get a helmet. If we tell you to put the helmet on...put it on."

    How many people are trained SF that could handle a bomber? You can only panic so much. Hence my lack of panic over guns. I carry concealed. That is about all I got. Nothin much else I can do. Body armor is hot and heavy in Florida.
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    I found lots of stuff like this. I don't know how powerful or reliable it is but it makes you think.
