Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

People who attempt to shoot down unmanned drones are putting the public in danger and could face prosecution, the Federal Aviation Authority has said.

The unusual clarification by the FAA was made after a small rural Colorado town said it was considering paying bounties to anyone who shoots down an unmanned drone.

The ranching and farming community of Deer Trail, 55 miles east of Denver, said it might give its 600 residents the option of buying a $25 hunting licence to shoot down unmanned aerial vehicles.



Considering the surveillance the average American is under by their government........... :banghead:
Let's be careful out there.

Considering the height at which any of the actual government drones will be flying - and the average ability of an uneducated american to distinguish between a drone and a manned aircraft...
One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.

The story really relates to model drones altho'; they did not specify as such but  cracked on about  privacy etc.,..therefore..probably meant  models,  as some people fly them in the street over there  (here as well, which  could invoke  the ANO  for prosecutions if  neighbours complain.)........

 How responsible is that? Condoning people to shoot at models possibly in built up areas when they are going to have no idea where the spent round is going to end up?

I believe that the proposition was made tongue in cheek to publicise the town in some manner I cannot recall. Bizarre to say the least, given all that has been said above. The image of a flaming UAV is a very real prospect given how LiPo are quite happy to become all incendiary at a mere nudge.

That said, it really doesn';t bode well to give people ideas. Particularly in a land that advocates shoot first, ask questions later.

It was Deer Lake and the offer of a bounty was apparently, serious as they offer bounties for wolf tails in that place..so a UAV would be no problem!! :rofl:

I just read the other day about Colorado State in the US was going to try and pass a hunting law for drones.  Drones are here....been here....and willing to bet stay here. Maybe some new laws or rules are needed to protect the innocent in any circumstance but the drone is a tool. It only does what its told. It is artificial inelegance controled by human intelegence. I do believe the pilot is responsable for it and its actions thought. Just the same as the pyrotech shooting the fireworks off. Or the same as a lumberjack if he drops a tree onto any person or personal property and creates damage or personal injury. As a pilot you need to be responsible and take responsibilty for your drones actions. Botton line. You fly it!....you buy it!
