    I debated putting this in Videos, but that all seems to be the beautiful scenic ones people themselves take, this is someone else's very short video off youtube, of what appears to be a phantom being collected by a racing truck.

    Would have been better if the quad came back and hit him in the head :lol:

    That's because it never hit it. The "operator" (or idiot in this case) managed to keep it to the side of the road because as the truck passes him to can see the quad continue to gain altitude in one piece. I think either we were duped because this is a fast moving piece of video and the drone is out of shot as soon as the truck enters the area, or someone saw it and thought the drone was obliterated. You would have seen it "come from together."

    Very good possibility. After 10-15 views, one can see the quad in the air away from the truck in one piece. 1/8th of a second view, but can be seen.
    Guys still an idiot.

    I was thinking the same thing, since it didn't seem to collide and surely the video would have shown the remains!

    It's alive, but he's lucky it is, and lucky he didn't cause a crash or some other problem. Such a knob...

    I had to see what was up with this truck. Came across this.

    A little something for the gear heads and, well, it just doesn't get any better than the Outlaws. :cool:

    Uh, no, that totally hits! Listen to the sound. You can hear it get hit. It clips the side of the cab and you can see it spinning off. Note the sudden direction change that happens at the same moment you hear it hit. Also you can see it's going the wrong direction for the pitch it's at.

    Well, I am back to what some others here also are thinking. He did hit the truck, but on the side. That just bounced it off in the odd direction it is going and still in one piece.

    Have you accounted for the second shooter in the grassy knoll?
