    read it earlier on yahoo
    good for her and a good shot to boot [:D][:D]

    I have also read there was a law or trying to get one if you shoot one down and the owner / operator is licensed there considered a pilot its a crime felony ? like taking out a aircraft [:(!][:(!]

    I'm a big fan of RC aircraft, but it bothers me that fellow enthusiasts somehow feel it appropriate to inflict a fun hobby upon the rights of others.

    Snooping with a camera on private property should not be protected, hovering would in my opinion open the craft up to kablooey.
    Why don't we go to school and work on the weekends and take the week off!

    Someone should offer to mount it for her so she can hang it up over the mantle! Nice shootin', ma'am!

    Here it's illegal to shoot down a drone. It shouldn't be but it is.

    Invasion of privacy. I did not ask you to fly that thing over my home and take pics of whatever you want. Both barrels..

    My brother has one. Not a toy, can fly hundreds of feet in the air and miles from your location, has advanced photo and video capabilities.

    We fly ONLY in rural areas, great for scouting and looking at you duck blinds, etc.

    They can present a definite invasion of privacy, some are toys, but one with a camera buzzing around the beach, public areas, etc should be dealt with the same way one would deal with a perv walking around with a mirror on their shoe.

    They question just how much airspace a person can claim over their own property. I figure if you can down one with a 12 ga. loaded with #7 1/2 shot, it was in your airspace.

    Very close to where I grew up....I use to deliver parts out there when I was working summers in between college semesters.

    Kinda makes me miss home...[}:)]
