At Columbus Gun Club, there used to be an RC flying field adjacent to the trap range...on second thought, I'm not going to finish this story.

The point of view I'd really like to see is the one OF the copter and its video feed of it heading for terra firma...maybe spice it up with a "mr. Bill" claymation pilot deploying his chute and screaming OH NOOOOO after jumping and finding it was his back pack with his underwear and toiletries flying out,,,that would be too cool

The claim is $4000.00 in damage to the spy copter. With Bob Barker's one million he donated to the nut ball's to stop flyer shoots they will just buy another. I guess the price is right. My question is are they stalkers? May you defend yourself from their peeping tom actions. Every report portrays the shooters as the vilians. They were not the ones flying the spy copter.

The last time I heard, TRESPASSING and INVASION OF PRIVACY were still crimes. Any legal minds want to comment on this?

It would appear that the action would indeed constitute trespass of airspace over the private lands of another due to the closeness of flight and the act of interference on the activities of the land owners.

Don't think a DA is going to take on this one...

Your little copter suffered mechanical difficulties spiralled out control and has struck a blind, black, war disabled veteran and has caused immense suffering and permanent damage. You may pick up your equipment after showing undisputable proof of ownership.

Way OT, but I worked at the Bureau of Engraving in Ft Worth, a while back and there was a R/C airstrip that just to the south of it, the airstrip was there before the plant, one evening there were a bunch of fellas out there flying their airplanes and one strayed over the fence. They had a radio frequency jammer or what ever they call them inside the fence and his plane wouldn't respond to his radio, and it ended up flying into the side of the thermal oxidizer, and punched a hole in the stainless steel coating that held the insulation on the oxidizer

He went to the front gate to reclaim his plane, they got all of his info and told him they would get back with him

The last I heard before I quit is the feds were trying to get $49,000 out of him to reskin the oxidizer

Presentence have already been set, and air space is considered private and described about twenty different ways in them. It is very hard for law enforcement to get a warrant for the purpose surveillance using any sort of UMV and if it is considered private space for warrants it just about covers everything else.

The courts are not lenient for warrants in sky space because of the law enforcements so called "abuse" of the "spy Planes" Another words the ACLU gives the advantage again to the bad guys.

In the real world, the ACLU supported the rights to privacy. And always has.

semperfi909 : That is a can of worms if their ever was one. Right to privacy at what expense? That is the question that I am not going to go back in forth on as I believe law enforcment should be allowed to do thier job. From a one sided view you could say they support everything that is bad going on these days from protests at a soldiers funeral to burning the flag, porn, the word God. And yep I have a one sided view, mind like a steel trap when it comes to the ACLU.

I have to admit they do serve a purpose, but they tilt to far to the left and no wonder as they are all graduates from the same thinks tanks, our universities. Information about ACLU and private property, anything I am missing, your thoughts?

Sort of off topic, but a few years ago a RC flying club used to fly during the summer months, in the large field North of a large local high school.

One pilot lost control, and crashed his plane on the roof of the school.

Well, no one reported this, and he did not recover his plane, so after extensive water damage from the punctured roof, they found him, and I believe he was forced to pay for his mistake.

Don't we all have to be responsible for our actions?

Model Airplanes clubs and their members belong to the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) and are covered by a $2,500,000 general liability policy.

Claymuncher - I see no can of worms. There is a legality under current statute or there is not. There is a right granted by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights or there is not. The courts decide.

I wasn't aware that selective application of statute or access to the rights of the Constitution and Bill of Rights was an aspect of living in the United States.

I was also not aware that law enforcement was exempt from any criticism or restraint.
