You call that a surveillance drone???? A stark WHITE camera quad is a surveillance drone??? What cheesy little two bit Mayberry Police Department or
Agency would be using THAT piece of crap?
Now the quads are NICE ...for a consumer. They are fairly good for a corporate customer. They are crap on a cracker from the perspective of Government
or Police and sure as heck, not a nice BRIGHT white to show up against ANY background.
It doesn't even make sense for media, because media wants to cover the story...not BE the story..and you couldn't have THAT thing over a field or
crowd without, as this one did, becoming the whole center of attention.
I very nearly bought a couple of these a few years back when I had money to play with and was looking at a little aerial survey business.
They were $5,000 to $8,000 for the base unit when I was looking then with both flight beyond L.O.S. capability and automated hover mode for stability
in photography or filming.
These aren't Government units unless we've become a 3rd world nation....and they are celebrating destroying someone's very expensive equipment. Just
my thoughts...but I don't see the amusement in criminal mischief.
