Default Re: Drone crashes on White House lawn.

Doesn't look like this one takes crashes very well.The $62 (ud81?) on amazon takes hundreds of crashes.... I found this out the hard way when I learned how to fly mine. I would recommend getting the cheap one to learn and then upgrade once you get a grip on flying it.

This had to be a Govt. drone. How in the world would a private citizen get a drone close enough to crash on the White House lawn? I think your safe in your negotiations, Nick.

I bet it was Ben Gates and Riley Poole. Those crazy kids are always up to something.

Did anyone in the DOJ go to class when they taught Drunk is not a defense? This is #3 for this week.

You can't get drunk, kill Obumma and get away with it...

I imagine part of the new regulations will penalize you for Operating Drones Drunk.

In my opinion, Drones were fine until someone equipped them with a camera. Even though most would use them professionally in this business there will always be that person who will fly it over the neighbors pool and get some cheap shots.

I will always vote for my privacy.

If you cant properly inspect a residential roof without using a drone it might be time to do something else.

Why are you worried Frank. Are you hiding something??? Most people can see their neighbors back yard without a drone.
Whats your secret?

I cant see your neighbors back yard. However, if I was inspecting your neighbors roof 2 doors down from you with a drone and caught your wife on video in your back yard with your other neighbors 14 year old son and put that on facebook, you just might put a gun to your head. I would hate that Sean.

If your on a roof with a camera you could do the same thing Frank, being Paranoid is rampant at times.
I am sure when the internet started same arguments where discussed . I know because I was one of them lol. I hated computers . Besides that if a wife is caught in the backyard with a 14 year old there is more of a problem than a picture . Also it would save thousands on a divorce case . also every do a search with google you privacy was gone a long time ago

Don't be stupid Wayne. Privacy is something people take very seriously.

There are far too many irresponsible people out there and you know it.
