Default Please help with an investigation

I am an investigator with MUFON. We investigate UFO sightings. i have a video from a witnesss of an object i believe to be a RCaircraft. The object appears to be 100 yards from the camera and flys back and forth a small area also making an occasional oval pattern. there is no sound of a power source but there is a loud continuous beeping sound. the sound is much likethe safety alert of a commercial truck in reverse. the lights appear to be LED's and are bright blue and red that go on and off. the video is not good quality so thats about all the info I have. Whatever it is it isn't a toy like you might fly inside your home but a larger model.

Can any of you help identify this type RC copter. a manufacturer and model would be perfect. I know nothing about your sport so parden any dumb statement.

Thanks

welcome to the forum

I think it would help, if you could post the video. it's kinda hard to guess what something is without seeing it

The video cant be posted and isn't on youtube. I was hoping the beeping would be unique to one model.

No clue on the beeping sound. As he said, post a video and great things may happen. You can download it on to photobucket if you don't want it on a main stream web site.

The video cant be downloaded because the witness wants to remain anonymous therefore the video can't be made public.
Is it possiblethe beepingwas their "lost model alarm" configured with amanual switch on the controls. I saw that someone had done that on a you tube video.
Does that sound feasible ?

Sounds like he isn't too serious about getting to the truth then. Transmitters with a timer can make a countdown sound or maybe a low battery alarm.

Beeping can be anything. But our aircraft, be it fixed wing or rotory; fuel powered or electric, you are going to hear the sound of the rotor or propellers (motors or engines) more than the beeping. That is until the aircraft crashes or lands and all moving parts stop, then you will hear the lost model alarm.

Never dealt with a lost model alarm, so I am assuming on how loud they are.

More probable it's a charger or something in the back ground beeping. You ask if it's feasible without giving us 1% of the needed information to make an educated guess. So yeah I guess anything is feasible. Or it could be martians...

Obviously it was a UFO stuck in reverse!
