A portable, tactical aerial vehicle assembled on the battlefield and operated to provide "over-the-next-hill" reconnaissance information to the battlefield commander. Powered by two small battery-powered motors, the Dragon Eye can remain airborne for approximately one hour. This combat worn vehicle continued to fly after a bullet hole was repaired with epoxy filler and silver duct tape was affixed to hold antennae in place and strengthen weakening joints.
