Nein! Didst thou not see me grasping it triumphantly in the picture above, which may or may not be Photoshopped or an imposter that came in the mail? It lives I tell you! Look - I even put a headlight on it earlier tonight:Pilotsteve... needs a hobby- which leads me to think that the drone is still in the tree.
Nice guess, Rev! Unfortunately, that one couldn't be the right choice because the drone was lodged in a tree within three nautical miles of an airport with a published instrument approach procedure, which in turn made it Class Delta controlled airspace. Since it's illegal to fly unreported aircraft in such areas, I decided not to let the firemen know about it. They tend to gossip with the cops, who share the same building.I'll bite ... I'll go with the firemen training exercise story!
