    How come the four policemen photographed together with the toy like they have just arrested a gang of drug traffickers with a several large heroine containers? Some engineering student might have experimented the toy.

    This is a JI Phantom 2 Quadcopter available in UK for 450. Must add a camera. Sri Lanka news reporters and the police need seem amazed with these kinds of modern day gadgets used for photography.

    Blame this on MR or Gotabaya too accusing them of spying on others

    Gamarala Friday, 05 June 2015 12:02 PM

    There is nothing sinister about this adult toy. Its not military drone, as long as these are not flown over secuity areas (it had a go pro camera) its OK. Locate the owner and give it back to him. Its an adult toy.

    This is a photography tool which you can buy for Rs.188,500/-. See below. Not an "Unidentified Drone".

    OZGuy Friday, 05 June 2015 01:28 PM
