    Why do you label him as a creep??? If the fellow doesn't fly drones as a hobby he probably knows nothing about the forums or how to try to get in touch with the owner. I blame the prior owner who apparently (I'm guessing) hadn't cared enough to put an "IF FOUND..." sticker on his bird.

    I think the problem is he is trying to sell it. It obviously is NOT his property. It would have been better to just post... Found - Phantom Quad - please call bla bla bla. The right thing to do is attempt to find the owner before deciding you going to make a quick buck just because it ended up on your property.

    You're right. I suppose he should have done that first. Didn't realize that Craigslist had a lost & found section.

    +1 and I am sure this is what msinger meant when he called the guy a creep.

    I emailed the seller and asked it they reviewed to video to see where it originated?

    someone could ask him for the serial number, saying maybe "to check how old it is" and send it to dji to see if they will tell the owner?

    I've sent him an email explaining that I'm a moderator of this group with thousands of users and we'd like to try to get this bird back to its rightful owner. I haven't heard back yet, but I'll keep on it...

    Thanks for the heads up Ifly...

    I'd imagine the rightful owner is just sick to death wondering where it went. First thing I did with mine was label it with contact info and installed a GPS Tracker on it.

    Hope the owner is found.

    It looks like he pulled the Craig's list ad... That doesn't sound good...

    Here is the response I got from the person who listed it on craigslist:

    It must have malfunctioned a.k.a a Fly-a-way.
