    If I saw that thing come at Me, I'd do my best to bring it down. Just sayin'.

    If you make the field add some rules to avoid that it would be really cool, though.

    Yeah, this has been talked about before. It always starts the debate of whether or not to shoot it down. In my opinion it would be a dick move to shoot at a £278 RC Helicopter but the field could have rules about that.

    If I were playing milsim I would not have a problem shooting down any kind of UAV.

    Being Milsim, UAV's fly way above your head and in the real world a SAM would have to engage it.

    I say, play like its a real UAV'S where standard assault rifles cannot engage it

    Not all UAVs. Take the Skylark for example it is about the size of a large RC plane and does not fly nearly as high. Although it has the ability to soar high in the sky, the camera used for surveillance restricts the user from effectively being able to see its target. Therefore, keeping it well within the range of infantry fire.

    The UAVs that your thinking of are types like the MQ-1 Predator, MQ-9 Reaper (formerly the Predator-B), and the RQ-4 Global Hawk. All of these and many more can fly above the range of small arms fire. But these are very, very big aircraft. With wingspans over 100 foot long. The UAV's that the OP is talking about are drones that can fit in your backpack and be launched in minutes. Now these can be shot out but many times you'd be too focused on advancing or on the mission that you'd never notice the drone watching you. And if you do notice, it's be very hard to shoot it down.

    I would use it for scouting and I could let our sniper run it for extra overmatch if hes board. But I can have it be relayed to me as well. I could run an ipad in my PC lol

    I agree that this does fit in the classification of backpack launched drones. Those fly within range of small arms fire. I do think that a field would make a rule about not shooting it, but it wouldn't last long because theres always going to be "that one guy"

    I've seen one used as a drone and it worked good against the other team if it quiet and u can sneak it around it would be amazing but if It gets spotted game over
