Mini Drones used in Afghanistan

The United Kingdom Military are using small drones to spy on afghan troops. The drone is small enough to fit in your hand and is controlled by one soldier. The upside to using this drone is that it is so small that it would be hard for the afghan troops to see the drone recording what they are doing. The drone is designed by a norwegian company Proxy Dynamics. The drone is used to take videos and spy on troops. The soldier uses a small mouse-like controller and receives its image and video feed on an hand-held device. The device allows troops to be more prepared about what lyes ahead of them when going around corners and into buildings.
