Model Airplanes This striking MQ-9 Reaper scale model aircraft or, drone aircraft as it if often called, is a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle.) The MQ-9 Reaper is crafted from Philippine mahogany wood and is an impressive aviation gift. The model aircraft arrives fully assembled and includes a display stand.
The MQ-9 Reaper was designed and built by General Dynamics, and currently there are 57 MQ-9 Reapers worldwide. Unlike the MQ-1 Predator that was mainly used for surveillance, the MQ-9 Reaper has been upgraded with more powerful turbo-prop engines and more advanced weaponry. Both the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy that use these remotely piloted aircraft consider the MQ-9 Reaper a hunter-killer combat vehicle.
