If you did, please send me a PM
If nobody replies before the week is out, i will say i lost my p3a just north of harvard.
Plus 1 for having a contact number on the airframe.
Hopefully the real owner will respond..
Doubtful. Probably afraid of the consequences (did drone caused accident/personal injury?). Which raises a good hypothetical question. What would you do if this happens to you... Would you claim your lost drone not knowing what damages it might have caused? Is it worth the the legal consequences that you recover probably damaged beyond repair drone?
I think I'll do the right thing and own up to it... But who knows?
No damage nothing. Perfect, found with the motors running? Strange..
Its mine. Flew from Canada with modified battery.
Not mine, but nice try. Obviously you must be an FAA investigator trying to identify the owner of an unregistered UAS so that the Harvard Square privacy liberals can prosecute the owner.
Just kidding. LOL.
Kudos for trying to help out. DJI had been reluctant in the past to help get these lost aircraft back to their owners.
Good question. I wonder how many would own up to it. To me, a pilot should not even lift off unless they are willing to be responsible about what may happen. For me, I have my name, mobile number, and AMA number on my P3 body, separately on the gimbal (since it so often detaches) and also in a README text file on the SD card. I have also been meaning to add it to my batteries since they seem to eject.
Would analysis of the internal sd card give the flight info and can it be accessed by anyone other than DJI?
+1. I have also printed Reward Offered on the label with my phone number. I include more detailed info on a QR code printed on the label.
This is why I name my SD Card my phone number.
Not only is my name, email and phone on every card (both as a text [readmeiffound.txt] and readmeiffound.pdf!), but a mention of a reward as well. I keep the reward money stashed in my hard case.
+1 for a very honest guy. Very pleased owner found...
Did he say what happened?
+1 for honesty.
Thanks for making the effort to find the owner. I guess this shows it doesn't take a Harvard Graduate to fly these thing.... orrr.....does....it...?
I still would be intrigued to know what happened
Me too. Did the owner find out through the forum here?
Was there info on the memory card?
Were Wanted Posters plastered around the campus?
Maybe he decided to keep it.
