Looks like we're sending a quadcopter to Titan. Should be interesting. Drones invading everything from games to space now.

I assume they have taken into account the differences in Titan's atmospheric differences being 98% nitrogen with methane and hydrogen rounding out the other major elements. Also I would hope they looked at the magnetic make up as drones usually use electric motors. I dont see them using any combustion based propulsion as that would require an oxygen source witch would be heavy for a Q-Copter to carry around. Gonna be interesting to see. As much as I am a huge proponent of NASA and funding their research I would say we have a lot more pressing issues some of this money could be going towards at this time.
