Yeehaw! Southern police departments in Houston, Texas and Miami-Dade, Florida are fixin' to take in the Honeywell Micro Air Vehicle (or MAV) for a
crash course in law enforcement. The remote-controlled drone video tapes everything it sees and acts as an eye where police can't easily go. It's
easy to lug around as a backpack since it only weighs around 15 pounds, it takes five minutes to deploy, can zip around at 50 knots, and hover 10,000
feet in the air. Good gravy! Honeywell says the MAV is incredibly easy to operate. The drones will give police officers a surveillance option as the
drone can peer through windows (or fly through open ones) and hover around corners.
