Video: Drone controllers at work

For non-pilots, these controllers are in Nevada and each are flying a drone thousands of miles away in the combat zone in Iraq and Afghanistan, their left hand is on the throttle controlling the drone’s engine.

Note all the buttons which perform various tasks without removing the hand from the throttle. The right hand is flying the plane.
Watch how it’s done – speakers on & watch in full screen!

This is modern warfare.

Note: This is a training scenario
