    Somebody has too much money and free time on their hands lol....pigeon shoot? Surveillance drone? Snipers? Really? I'd wager money that the shooters where his guys, plan b if they couldn't catch any "pigeon abuse" on tape. (why don't smileys work here) Or the whole story is bs - who would send air recon for pigeons :p

    Good shooting...the article says drones are completely legal. Not according to the FAA.

    This is just a simple RC aircraft with a camera attached. I dont think it falls under FAA jurisdiction as long as its not flown in an airway or terminal control area and below certain altitudes.
    IMHO the guy could possibly be cited for flying it over a highway.
    Glad it was taken out. Maybe the plantation should get an RC of their own and stafe the heck out of it next time.
