21st Century Pilotless Airwolf Stolen

OK, it's obviously not Airwolf. According to this Israeli newspaper the Steadicopter was recently stolen a few days after the completion of its test program and final test flights. According to the article:

"Steadicopter CEO Tuvia Scgl told 'Globes' today that he had no doubt that industrial espionage was behind the theft. "We're convinced that the thief was working for our competitors, because he went directly to the helicopter's location, and broke only the guardrails to that room.

'The helicopter is unique. No other company in the world has succeeded in operating such a flying machine, capable of independent flying without remote control. Many companies have tried, but none of their tests worked.'"
