I have a quad similar in size, it gets 10+ minute flight times easily and can handle over 20 mph winds. Doubt it could carry any significant
ordinance, but it might be nice for reconnaissance and/ or painting targets. Guys on RC Groups have already equipped them with cameras and even micro
APV (aerial video platform) capable of POV (point-of-view) flying. IE, you wear goggles and fly via the point-of-view image broadcast from the quad.
And this kind of capability is available to hobbyists like myself, one can only wonder what the military is playing with.

Your wish has already come true:
These things fly awesome!! Flies smooth as butter in a living room or garage, but has no problem flying outdoors in heavy wind either. It's a really,
really great flyer. I've flown many planes and several helis, but this is my first quad and I love it.
