Illegal Businesses Beware.
New Zealand.

Could this guy be flying over someones marijuana grow site? Or maybe it is someones still site. I would run like hell too if someone just shot down my drone.

I don't see how you can say that this pilot was perving. Looks like he is flying over dense forest/jungle. He is not even flying FPV as far as we can see from the video.

Maybe discovering all these illegal businesses is one reason everyone is so upset... just saying. ATF will probably soon be using these MRs with FLIR thermal imaging cameras to shut down the Moonshiners TV show.

As someone else noted it might have been a hunter annoyed by the drone scaring off the game he was hunting. Pretty good shot.

Either this guy KNEW it was likely his drone was going to get shot down or this is a setup. A shotgun blast THAT loud, just took out your expensive flying craft and you don't make a peep. You just start running? There has to be more to this story.

Marty,

If someone, in the middle of the forest, just started shooting, what would you do? He has a shotgun/rifle, you have a radio transmitter. My first option would be to run. You don't know if the shooter knows where you are or not. He could have been observing you for quite a while like a sniper.

You never know, but my first choice would be to get the heck out of there..... but, he did go back and recover the drone. Maybe he got some help and was packing when he did the recovery. Don't know, facts not in evidence.

There are a lot of loose threads to the story... and you are right, it could have been completely made up.

The drone belongs to Lou Bloomfield a professor of physics at the University of Virginia. It appears he teaches UAVs topics at the same university. Can't say if this video is staged or the real deal.

I've already been doing that for many years. Always carry where legal...and maybe sometimes where it isn't... Personal safety always.

So if you're a registered pilot and someone shoots down your "uav". The shooter could face severe penalties.

seems like the FAA opened a larger can of worms

I thought that the drone shoot down in Kentucky was under appeal.

Telemetry positioning data and video prove the drone was 200+ feet in the air and over the shooters property for less than 2 seconds. It was not over his property when shot. I cannot believe that the judge got this one wrong.

This latest video was in New Zealand.
