Eight months after it was grounded following a crash, an "Eitan" UAV took of for a successful test flight Thursday, signaling the drone’s return to combat deployment, the IDF spokesperson’s office said Thursday.

Over the past eight months the IDF has carried out a battery of tests to determine what caused the January 29th crash outside Gedera, and found a technical malfunction in the adhesives on the aircraft’s wings.
