    The news media has succeeded. Now drone owners even fear themselves

    Oh hey, DJI stands behind their products, don't they replace every bird that crashes due to stupid flying? (not insulting you here, just poking a little fun at all the "my phantom flew away and DJI only wants to give me 30% discount crowd...):D

    No man should have his privacy invaded, even by himself.

    I'm not sure what could be more fun, flying my craft or trying to shoot it down, interesting thread none the less.

    Actually you Should have waited until Labor Day Monday, then you could have used the excuse. You shot it down, because it was following you. ;-)

    Bury it and move on... Next?

    So what happens when you miss and the bullets goes where? Maybe into somebody walking on the street. Then what do you do???????

    Since you are well aware of the problem, why would you be part of it? You are making more work for the volunteer moderators here. This is not the first time you personally have drawn the attention of the mods. Would a warning help, or maybe a short vacation?
