    Drone has been flying over our homes and then gas has been taken out of quads and other machines.  Be on the lookout.

    This is off Fountain House Rd in Dobbins.

    Time to set up the Trail Camera's. The person with the drones should be close enough to control it. I could be wrong, but I think they have to have 'sight' on it to control it.

    We have trail cameras on our property. They paid for themselves after catching ArborWorks coming on our property cutting down a tree. BTW, if I see the drone it'll be used as target practice.

    Higher end Drones do not need line of sight as they have a camera and you can use a smart phone/ Ipad to control them. A drone flying over your property is not illegal unless you can prove that it's intention is for illegal purposes (Beyond a reasonable Doubt). Shooting them down IS illegal and is covered under the FAA. You shoot one down with a firearm and you could lose your right to own a firearm. So get your slingshot and rocks ready.

    If it's illegal you shouldn't engage in it in the first place. If there is no evidence it doesn't mean you still didn't break the law, in fact you added a second crime to it. Shooting down a drone, 2) concealing a crime.

    New law. (Calif. Civil Code section 1708.8.)

    Last time i heard beyond a reasonable doubt was only used in criminal matters not civil matters.

    It did, but when people get held accountable on those technicality by the law they tend to feel they are treated unfairly.

    If you get caught shooting it down it will become a criminal matter of course they have to prove that too. So you will need to take the persons phone with the video on it when he comes to get the drone. And that is how a situation starts getting worse. hahaHa!
