Radio Controlled TerroristsThe homegrown terror geeks took a bizarre turn this week when the government arrested an American on charges that he planned to blow up the Pentagon and the U.S. capitol with a model remote controlled helicopter .
Gerald bought a model helicopter for $6,500 and kept it secreted away in a rented storage facility ( his bedroom ) in Framingham, Massachusetts. He said his friend, who was an undercover FBI agent, gave him the money to buy the toy. He had plans to buy other military-style model aircraft too.
There is no information to indicate Gerald was connected to a foreign terrorist organization. It appears he was radicalized watching videos of model helicopters flying on the internet.
He was given the opportunity to back down, but he never wavered from his intention -- thanks to FBI encouragement -- to carry out subversive flying.
''The MCPX helicopters is so awesome for the fact of it's durablility and small size; makes it very easy to learn on with confidence, and not nearly as scary as large helicopters'' ... Gerald said
