Someone hit the drone with a rifle shot. Give that man a ceegarr ! Seems drone season is underway. Sounds like a lot of fun to me.

I can guarantee only one thing ...... if I own the property..... and it's flying over it .... to me it's invading my privacy and trespassing on my property..... and it's fair game at that point. They didn't respect someone else's rights but thought they had the 'right' to invade someone elses..... suffer the consequences .... learn a life lesson.
On the other hand, I don't think I would ever be seen at a live pigeon shoot for any reason.

Chief Justice John Roberts : "I don't see how you can read Heller and not take away from it the notion that the Second Amendment...was extremely important to the framers in their view of what liberty meant."
In the spirit of "turnabout is fair play," I wonder how the bunny huggers would react if someone flew a helo - manned or unmanned - over their private property, took pictures/videos, and then posted those images on YouTube. I bet the screams would be deafening and the ACLU would come running.

One of my company's numerous products is a backpack-sized, soldier-launched, battlefield "drone" = UAV. testing them, even in tethered flight, required an FAA pilot's license - I kid you not.

I believe it is illegal to harass wildlife and game with a drone, but I don't think boxed pigeons qualify. Drones don't need taxidermy!
I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.
This just in: The Supreme Court has amended there ruling that corporations are people and added so are drones......

There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
I fly these for fun. My GPS module even gives me HUDS.Do I need to get approval from the FAA to fly a model aircraft for recreation?
No. FAA guidance does not address size of the model aircraft. FAA guidance says that model aircraft flights should be kept below 400 feet above ground level (AGL), should be flown a sufficient distance from populated areas and full scale aircraft, and are not for business purposes. 1, 2
If I fly a UAS for business purposes, such as new technology development, am I required to get approval from the FAA?
Yes. There are presently two methods of gaining FAA approval for flying UAS: Special Airworthiness Certificates - Experimental Category (SAC-EC) for civil aircraft, and Certificates of Waiver or Authorization (COA) for public aircraft. 1, 3
