If we weren’t done with the FAA with the NPRM, I guarantee you we will be now. The idiot even put this on Facebook for a little while but i guess the marijuana wore off a little and he realized he’ll be going to prison so he took it down. Make sure to watch it to the end. You’ll see the drone prop blades in the corner of the picture. Luckily, some people screenshot it and they’ll track him down. How stupid can people be?!?

I've said it for years, quadcopters will end this hobby. The FAA should make them illegal...

A guy ran into an H-60 in New York, during a TFR, flying beyond line of sight, and damaged the blade on the helicopter.

Yet we aren't done.

That would be like closing all bars because one person drives drunk and causes a wreck

I hope you're right Andy. I put this in this forum because it was sort of jet related. Feel free to move if you need to.

problem with that analogy is many dont fly RC planes so they have no problem banning us.

That being said this could have been so bad. The pilot is not even looking forward when flying in formation like that hes looking at the plane next to him. Could have hit the drone easy taken one or 2 planes down in a crowded neighborhood... people are so dumb.

Seeing this really pisses me off. These ridiculous drones and the idiots that fly them have NOTHING to do with our hobby. Why should we be held accountable for them!!!!

The best case is for them to track this guy down and fine the ever loving snot out of him.

Then make a press release.

What do you say to that... I read your posts before I watched the video and thought could it be that bad? NO!! ITS WORSE!!!!!!!

Yeah great video shot but thanks to this moron the FAA has more ammo to ruin our hobby.

Thanks buddy, mean it...

I wish I had the tools and resources to catch these guys and turn them in. I wonder if the video can provide his location based on the surrounding buildings. I’m sure somebody knows exactly where that is. It wouldn’t be hard to stake out the block and watch for a drone user carrying gear or loading a car or even fly it outside. If he feels comfortable enough to get on the roof he must live there. No people in the video on the roof with the guy.
I want to CSI the heck out of that video!!

Unbelievable.

And this guy is a professional?

Wow. Beyond dangerous. Take down an F-18C in a populated urban area? That should be treated like a direct attack on the Navy.

I say put him on the flight deck of the nearest carrier after telling all those boys that this guy directly attacked all of them and their families.

Then film it.

That would be just about square.

OP needs to be clear... the guy who uploaded the video is just a re poster not the idiot who owns and flew the drone.

It is not his video or drone. He posted it to expose the pilot. So please don't call this number.

Yep. It just shows how truly ignorant and oblivious people are when they do something this reckless. Unfortunately we are going to have to pay the price for their stupidity.
