    July 26, 2015, after his daughter reported seeing a strange drone hovering nearby, Merideth grabbed a 12-gauge shotgun, stepped onto his porch, and fired at the object once it crossed over his property line. The drone went down, and, according to Merideth, its owner soon arrived to retrieve it. “Four guys came over to confront me about it, and I happened to be armed, so that changed their minds

    They were checking out his daughter in his pool

    I don't get it. Why spend all that money and endanger airplanes or people on the ground just to take videos above the clouds? NASA's website has plenty to watch. It's basically the same thing every time. 1 second of seeing earth get smaller followed by 2 seconds of whiteout then the sun ahead and the clouds below. It's potentially very dangerous. To get that high that quick it must have needed a lot of explosives to power it. More inconsiderate me, me, me mentality.

    Doesn't take that much height to clear low morning mist/fog. No big deal

    Yah but it looked cool.


    This was my thought as well, that cant be real even though some drones can go pretty damn high.

    Heres a video of one called the Phantom 4.

    I've got a couple cheapies that I had fun with for about an hour or so. Most of my local parks have banned them already. I don't really need to see what my yard/house looks like. Since I can't use them anywhere and I'm not a creeper spying on the neighbors daughter the fun has passed.

    Besides the obvious military/police/search and rescue/news uses I think we're coming to the end of regular joes being able to use them. They're going to cause more trouble than they're worth.

    Quite a climb rate. Pretty sure these are going to be used for something really bad in the next few years.

    I also think if I owned a farm or some sort of property with lots of land they might be useful. Want to check on the cows? Just send the drone out.

    It seemed really fast like the vid may been sped up but impressive nonetheless.

    FWIW, as of December of last year, everyone is required to register their drone aka UAS ("unmanned aircraft system") with the FAA.
