AerialMediaPros broken into
Hey guys, I am copying this from RCGroups. It's not my stuff, I copied it here to help Patrick out. Please keep a lookout for this stuff.

Aerial Media Pros BROKEN INTO Please keep eyes and ears open for RTF XM8 Skyjib & RED
Hey guys,

It saddens me to have to write this. But I am hoping somone will see or hear something in the next days to follow. Last night between 8PM and 8am In COsta Mesa CA, someone broke into our shop, and pretty much wiped us out. The perp came through a window, and cut them selves pretty bad. So chances are they are bandaged up pretty good right now. The worst part of all of this is that we had just cxl our insurance last month, because they would not cover us for Aerial work. What a big mistake. To all the other business owners out there, Please learn from my mistake and make sure you install CAMERAS, and have adaquate insurance.

The items stolen are not your average copters, and can easily be made out. They are some of our custom builds. They also got our RED camera with lens's. If anyone sees or hears anything about the following items, Please call us at 888-557-6791, or call the Costa Mesa Police department directly at 714-754-5252 CASE# 13-229

OK, here is the stuff we have found missing so far.

This has been a major hit to us, But our spirits are high, and we will not let this stop us from moving forward.

It's not my stuff. I just copied it from RCGroups so everyone here could keep an eye out for it as well.

It will turn up sooner or later.
Specialized stuff will not blend in very good.
I just wonder how many skyjibs there are in the us.
I guess less than 100.
