Even if you destroy the structure completely, as long as you keep the fittings intact you can very easily cut yourself a new airframe out of foam board.

Pretty tough... far from bulletproof though.

I saw this design on diydrones a few months ago

I wonder what's its weight

As an Israeli innovation, that can't be far off.

Weakened men boiled soup made from the leaves of lemon trees picked in the Greek Orthodox compound--gathered under the menacing sight of a remote-controlled sniper rifle bolted to the top of a crane at the edge of Manger Square.

I can definitely imagine a future UCAV that is basically a mid sized quadrotor with a 22LR rifle, where the idea is that it would not shoot from the air but fly to hard-to-reach concealed positions in order to be more accurate.

100 metres would be a realistic range for 22LR according to the Russians, more than enough stand-off and with a good suppressor it would be practically undetectable.

Research isn't a waste of time ;)

but fly to hard-to-reach concealed positions
Yeah same conclusion here. Though I think you can get good enough stabilisation in flight

flight starts at 1:18

Impressive!

In that case, ditch the rifle, fit one of these, fly right up to the enemy and shoot them in the face.

Nice find... though not this particular UAV, but the site itself

It seems there's a lot of interest in UAVs and money invested in them. Have you considered making custom parts for them ? Like for example gimbals/pantilt units?
