    I saw this posted today on my local police department's Facebook page. Not good for the local phantom pilots like myself.

    Hmm.. "We want to talk to you". Not, "we would like to help you out by returning your property." Sounds ominous. Don't do it!!! :D

    Sounds like one of the Deer Park residents is claiming whiplash,

    But that is a Phantom 1 pictured... and if they really want someone to come forward they should delete that last sentence. Just saying. :expressionless:

    The cops say "dji 4 propeller drone" so it's not confused with dji drones with 5 propellers.

    Yeah I had to reread that as well . First thing I though is that's NOT a Phantom 4. Then I realized that I was reading something that a layperson (cop without a lot of drone knowledge) was stating in a way that reflected the drone having 4 props and not the model of said drone.

    If he wanted a fair fight he should have gone somewhere else.

    If I was the owner and wanted it back, I'd just claim it and refuse to answer any other questions.

    Should not be any different then a baseball or football landing on someone else's property.

    I believe they said it was a "4 propeller drone" and not a DJI Phantom 4.

    Yup, you guys are right... the way it was written I saw P4. I wouldn't expect someone to say they saw a 4 wheeled Chevy... it's a car right? They typically have 4 wheels. :D
    I doubt anyone is going back for a cameraless P1.

    go claim it! whats the worst that could happen....
    "because we want to talk to you". yeah right.
    most likely no registration # on it.
    if it was mine- i would go get it. but my lawyer would be right beside me.
