Very cool stuff.
Surprised they didn't have them before.

The Israel Defense Forces is equipping its forces with a new range of spy drones small enough to fit in a soldier's backpack, including one that weighs less than a can of soda, the army said Thursday

The Israel Air Force has frequently used larger unmanned spy planes to track and target Palestinian militants during airstrikes. The new mini-drones would also give army forces in the field on-the-spot access to aerial intelligence.

This is one time when saying "we're smaller" is a good thing.

The fly is still a little ways off but it will be great when it's introduced. Especially if it can get 1 1/4 mile range.
