Drones and haters of

Drones are already an advantageous game changer for our war on terrorists but we haven't seen the backlash yet.

Something like this but with more range:






Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses. Big Grinnie

Exactly... just needs more power... where's Tim the Toolman when you need him?

There should be a way to equipt GrammaBears mower with one of those expandable fish nets. With a push of a button, she can snare one or two drones. Wink

This is not a new problem. When I was flying helicopter 25+ years ago, aircraft modelers would try to reach our altitude which was typically around 700 ft AGL. We'd climb to the maximum altitude allowed which was 2499 ft MSL or we would bust into class B airspace. Biggest threat to us was loss of the tail rotor.

I'm not a big fan of government regulation on what people want to own; but where one person's rights intersects another person's rights, then we have a conflict. If you want to own one, fly it in the desert and stay away from aircraft.

In ky it wasnt the neighbors drone. It belonged to some punks in a car who were hovering it under the shooters neighbors carport and over the shooters backyard privacy fence and pool at about 10 ft. According to all witnesses.
Man shot it down with birdshot from a shotgun.
He was then threatened by the drone owner and friends but they left when he threatened to shoot them if they came on his property.
Drone owner claims drone was at 250 ft high, blatant lie. A shotgun would not be able to damage a butterfly with no 8 shot at that altitude. Nor pose any danger to anyone the bbs fell on.
Man was charged with criminal mischief and wanton endangerment. I expect those will be dismissed. He might get a fine for firing in city limits if that.

Since I retired from the US Customs Service, these are the drones I miss most:[Image: drone_jpg_475x310_q85.jpg]

A relative in a rural area shot down 2 drones on their property last year. Turned them over to the National Guard since their training camp isn't far, rather than the sheriff (who is understaffed). Posted a sign that said "drones found, pickup at Camp _____. " Hasn't heard a single one this year.

There are plenty of places to use drones for fun and it's not a big effort to ask a property owner for permission. We used radio controlled airplanes for years without incident.

But I bet your RC planes did not contain cameras for spying on your neighbors!

Now this is a drone - QF-4. Now building them out of F-16s.

BTW, the FAA did use a radio controlled 707 for some fuel test.
