These little aircraft puckering devices have revolutionized aerial video production.  Since they are battery driven, would it be possible to use for aerial surveillance when the SHTF?  Clearly we use drones in a military setting but what about the endless consumer models that keep adding range and altitude as prices keep dropping? From a homestead perspective, it seems plausible to launch one around the property line or down the main access road to check for intruders but why not strap on a thermal cam and run a fleet of them at night?  If the grid was up, transmitting and viewing would be simple.  Grid down and it would still be executable with a solar set up.  But what about weaponizing?  I can’t see any uses due to weight of possible weapon attachment, can you?
