After neighbor shot down his drone, Kentucky man files federal lawsuit
will be nice to get some actual case law around this stuff.
Well hallelujah! It is about time this law breaker and the judges actions be overturned. He needs to be charged with several crimes in this case, not let off. If they are gonna been hobby craft "aircraft" I want the same protections as full scale aircraft.
I'll betcha the "drone slayer" ain't worried about his personal info being publicly available on the internet, lol.
That was one of the issues a caller to the NPR radio broadcast I referred to in my thread "Drone Discussion on NPR Radio with the FAA" was about. Whereas, this lawyer Ryan told the audience and the caller that it could be considered legal to shoot one down!?
From what I understood in the article, the guy that calls himself the 'drone slayer' has shot down a few drones that flew over his property. You have to ask yourself one thing…..if he doesn't want drones over his property, what is he trying to hide?
Also….he doesn't own the airspace above his property, so let it fly (providing the person flying the drone isn't using it peep on the owner or using it to find out ways to trespass on his property)
I do not agree with shooting down the drone and am not siding with the individual at all. Based on other articles I've read I think the plaintiff is wanting the Feds to clarify some points. What constitutes airspace? 80 feet, 10 feet, 6 inches? There is also an increase in hovercrafts. Would they be able to skim a few inches through your yard? As someone mentioned in another post, what about kites?
The Feds (FAA) have already clarified what constitutes "airspace" and that begins the moment any aircraft leaves the ground, so ANY height. What needs to be clarified is what is "personal airspace" around private and public property (different issues between private and public areas in my opinion).
What about the stray bullets. I assume he misses also. Feds and staties have a dim view of firing weapons into the air.
Apparantly not. The judge let him off. Not Guilty.
Wow, ah nothing like consistency in the law..
Tks for the update
I say the bullets are Unmanned Projectiles that eventually fall out of the sky.... Oh wait so it Phantom Drones. Well Drones fall out of the sky "less often"

How righteous was it to shoot in the air in this crowded neighborhood and about 600 yards from a airstrip?.
Justice for a man in New Jersy. Funny thing here. Over bearing gun laws is probably the reason this case went the other way.

Interesting logic, if you can call it that. Most likely some obscure loophole in the law or he had Johny Cochran. Lol
