Some people thought our old header looked too much like the military's Reaper drone, so I had it redone more like the NASA Ikahana. It's not a perfect model, but close enough?

If you're not going to worship Major Marcy, you might as well use Vika 1.

There's just no pleasing some people

How about turning the header into rainbows and hearts and peace signs??? :D|

Honestly I don't see why some people are freaking out over drones, I loved the original banner and I like the new one as well. Why do people freak out and think drones are evil killing machines... In 2005 nearly 600 people were killed with blunt objects, like baseball bats. Should we put up posters that say when baseball bats are used to attack, people die?

I vote for the baseball bat, especially if somebody flies one

I wondered why the baseball bat was getting bigger......then it hit me....!

And any thing else , ppl will not associate this site with UAV , hobby or other wise, As much as I like to see some other UAV as logo that cannot be associated as evil , nothing comes to my limited imagination. I am also not an artist and so I will live with what is there now. May be some day in distant future, some gr8 looking peace time UAV will rise from ashes and we can have it , my 2 cent worth.

I made a vector trace of the Ikhana Predator B based on this image from NASA Dryden (it is mirrored):

I made 3 versions:

If you prefer it I can make an updated version of the header or send an email with the adobe illustrator file to Chris or whoever manages the website.

My personal opinion is that if we have to choose from an existing UAV and not something abstract like a logo, the Predator drones are the best choice because they are the most advanced and well known and also are the pioneering project on this field (especially if we consider the work of the great Abe Karim on the Amber, the Predators predecessor).

Is the 'Ikhana Predator B based on this image from NASA Dryden" a real image or artist impression , if so why is the letters mirrored like in Ambulance ?!! just wondering
