Dubbed SkyJack, this new contraption uses a radio-controlled Parrot AR.Drone quadcopter carrying a Raspberry Pi circuit board, a small battery, and two wireless transmitters. The devices run a combination of custom software and off-the-shelf applications that seek out wireless signals of nearby Parrot drones, hijack the wireless connections used to control them, and commandeer the victims’ flight-control and camera systems.
You wouldn’t download a car… when you can order anything to your house via hijacked delivery drones. Welcome to the future, where music, microcode, movies, and high-speed drone delivery pizza are king.

This is where it all starts.
