    FIRST LOOK: Wheeled Variant Of India's Nishant Drone Takes Off



    Panchi, the wheeled variant of India's first operational home-built surveillance drone Nishant, took off for the first time today on a 20 minute sortie. The platform has taken its time. The Panchi was unveiled for the first time in Feb 2009, and a photograph of the Panchi, still designated Nishant at the time was seen on a tarmac in 2010.
