We spend enormous amount of brain power and talent to come up with a new technology with endless useful applications like drones and then some brain-dead, thoughtless and selfish moron goes and spoils it for the rest of us.  Too bad natural selection is slow to solve this problem.

Thanks for posting it.

It's interesting and good for us that the owners specified that she doesn't expect it to be an RC aircraft (model airplane I assume she means), as those hobbyists know not to fly near airports.  That's a very clear distinction between rule (as law) abiding RC hobbyists and the those who are making a bad name for the hobby.

Right on!  I hope the authorities see it that way!
