Mexican drug cartels are turning consumer drones into flying suicide bombers.

An article in Small Wars Journal summarizes the recent arrest of four men in Guanajauto in Central Mexico, approximately 189 miles northwest of Mexico City. The men were traveling in a stolen car with an AK-47 style rifle and 3DR Solo commercial hobbyist drone. The drone carried an improvised bomb via a string. A radio frequency detonator would then set off the bomb remotely.
