    I had toy tanks, soldiers, and every implement of destruction a boy could have when I was below 10 years old and I have yet to shoot anyone. This is BS. Toys are toys and kids will be kids. Lot less influence than teaching them how to wipe out a building of people with a trainer video game.

    I too had toy soldiers, built model battle ships, and planes. We played war all the time with only a few minor injuries due to dirt clod grenades. Toys aren't weapons they are just toys. Boys and some girls like them it doesn't mean they are any more violent or likely to become so.

    I think the issue here is not the toy but the idea and pricipal it represents. Many people are standing against the use of drones....kinda the reason you dont see nuclear bombs as toys to play with.

    G.I. Joe! Yooooooo Joe!
    Remember the cartoon? Man those guys good and bad couldn't shoot the broad side of a barn. Entire conversations were held in fire fights.

    @fayban Many people stand against both religion and political correctness alike and neither of those have gone away. I understand what you're saying but I think it's part and parcel of the uber liberal bunch who snivel about things they don't like just as much as the right who snivel about what they don't like. We're a sniveling nation.

    I'm not bothered by their reaction. Controversy makes these things almost as valuable as gold. I'd suggest buying as many as you can get your hands on. When people like the moron who made the comment, "'Love the idea of teaching the value of killing folks from a distance," start calling for the product to be banned, value will skyrocket.
    I have friends that are collectors of stuff like this, you'd be blown away at the value of some of those things, especially if they are still in the package.

    Google " R/C Predator drone" and you find them. I've been thinking about getting one to fly around my small town to get the locals all excited and worried.

    A serious comment. What's the difference between some pilot flying a U2-type silent plane, guiding aloft at 50,000 feet and launching "smart missiles" and a drone, other than saving the flight-time of the pilot, saving on fuel, cutting back on risks even more. Although a U2 type plane flying at that altitude and gliding would have absolutely nothing to worry about insofar as shoulder-fired heat-seeking missiles are concerned.
    What is the difference between that and a submariner launching rockets from under the sea, or launching torpedoes at an unwary enemy ship? The only difference is humans not being DIRECTLY involved. One is still "killing at a distance" and not really witnessing the results of what one has unleashed. War is hell folks. Our enemies regularly behead non-combatants for allegedly teaching Christianity; for providing villagers with immunizations against Polio; for just driving supply trucks; for translating for us. I didn't think we belonged in either Iraq or Afghanistan but if the President and the Congress are determined to fight a war, then fight to win. Our enemies don't play by the rules, as we have all witnessed at the 1st World Trade truck bombing and subsequent use of hijacking and using passenger planes as guided missiles. Methinks these folks protest too much.

    There is no difference... Those who are objecting to this TOY are objecting because they think it gives them some sort of moral high ground in the 'teaching of violence to the next generation' debate. What they fail to realize is that kids will 'play war' with sticks and stones. The choice of implement is irrelevant...

    Do they think we should get rid of toy planes, tanks, ships, GI Joe, and army men? Or for that matter toy guns, swords, and knives? It's a toy. If you don't like it then don't buy it!

    This is insane. People are dying from real drones, al quada bombings, there is a raging debate about deficit spending, AIDS, unemployment through the roof. But let's focus on whats really important. They made a baaad toy.

    I have also done this in the past! I wish there was a way to go back and change your vote. Also sometimes after reading comments and discussion my mind may also change on certain matters...

    @PoliticalSpice. Sometimes people have presented facts (or explanation of their opinions.) I may not have known previously. I am not closed minded to everything that goes against my ideas and opinions. I am interested in why others opinions are what they are. I don't really find any of that troubling. What I do find troubling is your interest of how and why I may or may not change my mind.

    I feel they or used to protect us from those that would like to kill us. Like the police, fireman, military do. It the ones we kill that hide behind women and children all the time as shields and propaganda. So when a Dron or military strike they die. It's their fault not the dron or military. Men don’t use women and children as shields

    Toys are toys, let the kids play. Heck even in China, where all guns are banned and websites like Remington.com and Winchesterguns.com are totally blocked, the kids can buy toy guns, gun puzzles, wooden gun cutouts, plastic swords, all kinds of toys. Meanwhile, back at the Liberal Loony Farm called the US, Hello Kitty bubble guns will get a little girl branded a terrorist, and an "L" shaped piece of paper will get a little girl suspended.

    Well, it worked out for the retailers. Toy "Predator Drones" that were $8 on Amazon are currently up to $44.88. My fellow Americans, see how the free market works whenever there is a threat of scarcity? Remember that whenever radical environmentalists and their leftists brothers try to tell you that that increasing or reducing energy production has no effect on gasoline prices, or your electric bill.

    I loved the line about killing people from a long ways away from a remote location. If you are going to kill people that's the best way. Duh.

    The problem being real drone technology isn't as high tech as a person might like. It's not kids playing with this toy that bothers me; it's adults playing with its slightly larger and far more deadly counterpart.

    "Love the idea of teaching the value of killing folks from a distance,' says one critic of the product"
    Because killing folks right up close so you can see the carnage is so much more humane. What a f#$%ing asshat.

    I'm not, but I know a whole lot of attractive, curvy MILFs in Albuquerque's Far Northeast Heights and Foot Hills who'll be very concerned when they sunbathe nude during the spring and summer. At least with the Albuquerque P.D. helicopter, "Blue Blunder" they could hear it coming and either take cover or cover up. With these drones, if their owners equip them with cameras, there will be no expectation of privacy, even behind their fortress-like walls. Poor little beasts!

    "Absolutely no need for a sense of morality or conscience is required to operate...just like the real ones."

    Seriously? A toy that should have a sense of morality or conscience when played with? The same can be said about my old Legos.
