and one more story to get the RC world in trouble with the press...


NEW YORK - Two men accused of flying a drone so close to a New York police helicopter that it was forced off course to avoid crashing have been charged with reckless endangerment, police said on Tuesday.

The close call took place at 2,000 feet (610 metres) high in dark skies near the George Washington Bridge just after midnight on Monday, said Det. Annette Markowski.

The drone was "circling and heading toward an NYPD helicopter, which forced the officers to change course to avoid collision," Markowski said.

The drone got within 800 feet (244 metres) of the helicopter, which was operated by two police officers on routine patrol, she said.

Arrested and charged with first-degree reckless endangerment were Mendoza Wilkins, 34, and Castro Remy, 23, both of Manhattan, she said
Life is either a daring adventure...
...or nothing.

Re: Drones in trouble - Again - not good

let's just ban pizza while at it
and sandals god i hate those

while a few incidents occur with drones they will ban the entire thing .....
this makes me think

In quebec politicians steals 4 billions out of the poor's pocket and get away with it without paying 1 cent

the poor then forget to pay a simple 56$ parking ticket = jail time and bad credit for the rest of his miserable life

Wanna play street hockey with the kids and make them enjoy the benefit of being active? WRONG police were called it's illegal to play in the streets

Want to relax and feel free going on a motorcycle ride ? you need to be back before 9 pm cause certain streets are not welcoming the motorcycle passed a certain time frame and you will get police on your tail.
