Ya almost had to see it coming......the potential evil uses for these things are scary.  Figured registration and regulation of sorts were just around the corner.

Probably the only ones made here would be too expensive for most of us to buy...

The Michigan State Police bought one for $175K...

probably not made in China but I'll bet many of the components were still made there.

What Are Drones Dropping Into Prisons?

A drone crashed inside a prison in Oklahoma. The drone was carrying contraband, such as: hacksaw, blades, drugs, and superglue. Authorities confiscated the unmanned vehicle and its cargo.


“Officials in Oklahoma claim to have halted the first attempt in the state to smuggle contraband into a prison with an unmanned aerial vehicle.

A drone hauling mobile phones, drugs, hacksaw blades and other items--all of which were hanging in a bundle from a fishing line--crashed at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary before prisoners could grab anything, officials announced on Tuesday.

The drone is said to have run into razor wire on prison walls, mid-flight on Monday. Its operator lost control of the UAV, and the drone crashed into prison grounds.”

This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

I stopped by a park the other day where I saw a guy practice flying his new drone.  My first time right up close.

If they figure out a way to "hush" those things then the possibilities are endless.

I wonder if what happens to the errant bullets would be a consideration.

Not to me.
Going for the gun isn't always the answer.

A safer course of action would be to let it land and confiscate it.

That way evidence wouldn't be destroyed, nobody would have to suffer from collateral damage, and the cost of replacing those bullets would be saved.

That applies to you, you cannot own one.

If you hear a buzzing sound above your shack, it's probably a drone checking on you.....
