U.S. Army Fails: Throwing Handheld Drones

The U.S. Army has its fair share of moments when they mess things up. Trying to get the “Raven” UAV to fly is no easy task for these guys.

The “Raven” UAV is a small hand-launched remote control operated UAV developed by the U.S. military. It was originally introduced in 1999 and now is used by a variety of countries.

It weights roughly 4.2 lbs, has a radius of approximately 6 miles and can fly for up to 60-90 minutes.

In this case, these guys would be lucky to get this thing to fly for more than 6-9 seconds.
