2700 feet up? I have a feeling they will make an example of this clown if they catch him.
Here's hoping they do. F'ing moron.
I'd like to know 2 things... how did the pilot see something that small at ~400mph and how/why did he have to climb 200 feet to avoid it?
Pilots manuver around birds everyday all day. Just saying.
Passenger jets don't 'manuver' around things... not like that. That's like saying aircraft carriers manuver around fish.
JerkyNuts, was it you??
I keep saying these people testing how high their P3 can go is stupidity and dangerous and everytime I do I get bashed and made fun of on this forum. It wont be until a quad takes down a plane, thats when these morons will take it seriously.
Nah, more likely our boy KillerKut. He lives around there.
Oh and yeah. Haven't clicked the link yet, just read the link description.
Using the RTH workaround, is the p3 actually capable of 2700 feet? Also, wouldn't this be close enough to the no fly zone that that app would have landed it anyway? I don't think this is going to be p3, doubt we'll ever find out.
There's no way a pilot saw a 350mm size drone from more than 500 meters away. They are travelling about 70 - 100 meters per second on approach. That would give him 5-7 seconds to react and climb 200 feet. NO WAY JOSE. Had to be a bigger drone.
What's the farthest you think you can see your drone on a clear day with line of sight?
I bet that it was KillerKut. He specifically talked about flying 3000 feet up around LaGuardia, but that he could do it safe because he was "smart".
I like it when the high flyers say they KNOW THE TRAFFIC PATTERN!
My highest flight so far is 96 meters, 315 feet. I have my Altitude limit set at 120 meters, 394 feet.
Who said it was a p3 or anything made by dji? Plenty of drones capable of that height
I had a p2 up at that height very very stupidly when I first got into this
Considering a guy on these boards specifically boasts breaking the height limits in this exact area with his P3P, it's hard not to be suspicious.
Ah it could be anyone, how many drone owners are in the area and I'm sure there plenty of people who fly that high and aren't a member of any forum. Bit too much of a risk for a witch hunt mate.
Sure, but it doesn't matter which one it was at this point. If you're on the island of Manhattan and you're putting your bird up to 3000 feet and then showing off pics on a community board? You're the enemy of our hobby/sport/whatever. It's these actions that will BAN drones. They're all the same to me.
Uhh...no, they don't. Commercial planes just either ram or grind up birds. You can't immediately make an avoidance turn on a 747 just for the sake of a bird.
