Possibly a criminal using the drone to prospect remote homes in your area for burglary opportunities.. On the other hand, there could be an even more sinister motive. You are a public figure because of your YT channel and known for your pro-freedom and pro-American opinions. You live in Oregon, the same state as Portland aka antifa central.

Federal law says anything coming across a property line- like a tree-can be cut off. Some states vary- but between 500 and 2,000 feet you "OWN" airspace within your property. Please ask local county clerk in your area. One time I had a drone hover near my kitchen window--- so opened window- shot it down with a shotgun. reported it; they came and got the drone parts. I own mineral rights- I also own Airspace; I learned. They left with the drone parts. Never heard anything back-after 2 years. Possible invasion of privacy; 2 year's now; nothing.... nobody ever complained. Learned a lot! Now consider drones as target practice!! Not worried anymore about it..PS -Not a drone since!

That was a poor decision to chase him down and engage him that way. That is a good way to get into a fight/shootout and end up in prison or getting killed. Your best bet would have been to fly your drone after him from your property and get his license that way. Getting into a fight or chasing someone down serves no purpose and in that case you are the one that is at fault for instigating the situation even if he flew a drone over your place.

Technically you can't. It would be destruction of property. Not that I necessarily agree with it, but the law as it stands today, you have no reasonable expectations to privacy in any area that can be viewed from a public space. If he'd used the drone to peer into a window or the like, then you'd be justified in reporting it to the police as that would be crossing the line in terms of your right to privacy. The government flies surveillance devices over you all the time and look at more than this guy does. It comes down to where you have a reasonable expectation to privacy. While the property may be designated as yours the air above it isn't. Now if you'd been cleaning your smooth barreled shotgun because it has no rifling ballistics, and while cleaning said rifle, you accidentally downed it.....allegedly because you don't recall, that would be different. The law is all about wording and perspective

Actually the FAA doesn't own anything. They're a government agency and as such they can't own anything on behalf of their own accounts. They can control or govern what moves in the airspace above the united states, but they don't own anything. The other thing is the FAA only controls the airspace above 401 feet. Anything below that they have no jurisdiction.

@Palmer Organic Farms he has no lawful or legal claim to airspace above his property. The government flies drones and other surveillance devices over people's property all the time. As long as the device wasn't used to peer into a window or X-ray into his home where there is covering, then you have no reasonable expectation to privacy. The FAA controls everything above 400 feet. He owns the land and the house, not the airspace because lawfully no one can deed airspace to him

Archery or crossbow arrow with a trailing streamer made of flexible steel leader will bring down those things and [barring camera footage] they won,t have evidence that you shot it down. Except on approach to and takeoff from a permitted airport manned aircraft are required to maintain 700 feet between occupied buildings and themselves. I,m sure there are similar regulations pertaining to unmanned air craft as well.
Jim Måned siden
Sorry, if he was flying above your tree tops he has every right to fly over your house and private property. The FAA maintains that they control ALL powered flight rules from ground level up. And unless he was committing another crime like peeping Tom he was doing nothing illegal. And to be specific it is always a federal crime to shoot at, interfere with, or knock a drone or any other aircraft (yes, they are legally aircraft) out of the sky. And going up to him and intimidating him could land you in legal trouble. And, the 400 ft ceiling is the highest he can fly, not the minimum he has to fly. He broke no laws and owes no explanation. If you WERE a drone pilot you would know this.

If you have a part 107 license, you would know they can fly over your house. The fact you were armed further agitates the situation and proves you had no fear of their motivation. Shooting a registered drone is the same a shooting at a registered aircraft. Punishable by prison and fines. I don't agree with people flying over houses but it is legal.

He drove away. He went his separate way. You went your separate way. And that was basically it. Absolutely nothing is going to come of this unless you have video of the drove and can positively link it back to the operator. Even then probably nothing will happen. I doubt the guy will return and it's likely not the first encounter he's had. Although drones are becoming problematic they cannot legally be shot down. The FAA considers them aircraft no matter what local laws are in place, Title 18 of the United States Code 32. The FAA is the final authority over all airspace above ground level. I understand your frustration. Good video. Thank you.

So how low can it go legally? There are also laws against aircraft flying too low. If a drone "flies" at 5' off the ground, I'll just grab it out of its "airspace" and deposit it into the dumpster.

I live in a rural area and have barns and storage buildings and I've had a lot of things stolen over the years. Often it takes a long time to notice something is missing and figure out that it's been stolen, not just misplaced. Usually, you suspect it's someone you let onto your property to do some work. I've never seen a drone flying around, but I suspect your drone guy was looking for something to steal.
D D Måned siden
Legally? ABSOLUTELY NOT! The drone is regulated by the FAA whilst in US airspace and it is someone's personal property. You have no right to destroy it and will be a court case waiting to happen if you do. If you feel the operator of the drone is breaking the law by flying within 50m of your property without your permission then call the police. It does sound very dodgy - he may have been scouting your property. You should have asked to see the footage - if it was just landscapes and the mountain then you could have apologised to pilot and moved on but if it showed pictures of your home... I would have called the police with his licence number there and then!

Running isn't a crime nor is it admission or guilt of a crime. People usually run because they're afraid of what they're running from. You're telling yourself this to justify what you want to do but also know the thing you want to do is wrong. So you'll tell yourself something to make the action ok. Lawfully or legally he has no claim on the airspace above his property

It's inappropriate to spy on people on private property. It's important and wise that you called this trespasser out. If we don't have boundaries people would be spying each other and privacy would be a thing of the past. Especially out in rural areas, that's just complete horse sheeite. He should be ticketed and have to pay a fine.
Sam Yaza
Sam Yaza 29 dager siden
If he wasn't on his property then he's not trespassing. Flying a drone over someone's property, while I agree isn't cool, it isn't illegal to do. You have no reasonable expectation to privacy if what you're doing can be seen. If he's used the drone to peer into his home or flew it into his home, he'd have every right to destroy it.

That wouldn't hold up in court. Shooting something down doesn't mean only using a projectile based device. If you use anything in the form of a device or process that results in the failure of the targeted device, you're liable. That would be like if someone was to use a radio-wave based device to disrupt someone's pace maker and they die. You're liable

You say your a drone pilot and you do it for a living but do you have your Part 107? Hope so since you use it in furtherance of a business. So many NOpostrs don’t and it’s just a matter of time until it’s a problem. The guy flying over your house is more of an ethical problem than a legal one, I recently re-upped my part 107 license and nowhere does it say you have to be a certain elevation to fly over a house, just not over 400 AGL. You might have a local case if you can prove he violated your right to privacy but he violated no federal laws. Was it Would you have been in some hot water with the FAA if you shot the drone down....most likely. So I’m not sure road raging on country roads is a safe and or appropriate response.

Shoot drones first apologise latter. Had something similar happen at night about 3 months ago.. Called the cops, drone was flying about 1:30 in then am buzzing several houses in my area. Went out side when I heard the chime like a blue tooth shutting down. Found a drone the next day caught in some blackberry's. The next day cops came by again and got the drone haven't seen heard anything since. Think a might have seen the guys down by the freeway inside an old rest stop about 350-450 ft off the back off our property. Not sure if was them But I had my dogs, my SRB and perimeter lights turned after hearing that noise. I'm pretty sure who was ever down there saw me. I'm retired military and so are my neighbors on either side. No problems since. Only reason from was in one piece couldnt get a clear shot on it. It buzed my minor daughter window on the 3rd floor.

So I'm an ex-subscriber and I still see the odd clip in my feed hence why I clicked to watch some of it. The paranoia displayed in this clip is the reason I unsubscribed as I cannot relate to this. The mindset of this guy is one of wild paranoia and mild fear of strangers, maybe its legit because of previous encounters, maybe its a result of fear mongering on TV and youtube, but its worrying thats this maybe now normal behaviour for many people living in the States.
