Yeah they left this thing in a shaddy area on purpose. They new it would get jacked. What brain surgeon left a silly looking pos on the side of a road in a place the redidents are unlikely to be going more then several blocks from their homes. Look up the address on a crime map. Its the freaking hood. Left in shit paris or montreal area same would happen.

Yeah brain surgeon did you read that the pilots last job should be trying to see an 18in square thing while trying to line up a run on a fire? The elevation of that run is whatever it HAS to be. So what pilot should have to waste time re align path take out drone then circle back to make its run? You don't understand the process do you?

What you can't see you can't avoid and what you aren't in control of can avoid you. So drone is above flight path gets sucked down. See how that's a problem. I thought this site was for people who knew shit like math and physics. Pilot should 100% not be having to watch out for drones while navigating a helicopter in a fire zone.

Yeah I'm sure they can come up with a solution. The law isn't going to stop drone dicks. Its not even going to make is possible to destroy them with any kind of ease. What it does is protect fire fighters who, when able, can destroy them from being sued by the pin heads flying them.
