    Criminals! It's registered though, is it not? I heard they must be registered before the MP even starts up. If so, maybe there's a way to trace it? For a thousand bucks I probably would have suffered and waited, but it looked pretty stuck from the vid. Nice VLog though.

    Person who has it would need to by the remote control. Better that he lost it. He was a bad pilot. Could have injured someone.

    You are going to see a lot of this, first time pilots in a hurry to fly and not having the first clue as to emergency recovery procedures, or how to fly in ATTI, or the rules, and what manual, I don't need no stinkin manual!

    He has another one on order. So bad pilots persist.
    His vlog is Casey Neistat styled and unfortunately his (Caseys) vlogs have inspired an outcropping of vloggers that think it is perfectly acceptable to fly recklessly to get that perfect shot.

    He said verbally that he was really bummed he lost his Mavic , but that its just a possession and he can just repurchase.

    I am sure one of those people who was gathered around when it was dry out hung around out of sight hoping the owner would leave. Then the wind picked up when he ( the owner) left the Mavic dropped from heaven for the new owner.

    So we have a case of transference from one bad pilot to a criminal pilot! Things are looking up ! LOL!

    Maybe even better right now: they can sell spare parts, high on demand without supply right now. I heard some repair centers even "butcher" Mavics for parts...

    Well, at least one should put a label with adress on it so if one finds a Mavic he CAN do the right thing...

    Flying without FAA reg. number or phone number is a big NO-NO in my book of flying...Again his not putting info on his bird just shows that he and others will fly over buildings ,people and when it falls out of the sky or gets stuck in a tree they can just walk away with no regards to property or injury and " no persacution......."

    If you don't hand it in to the Police, in the UK it is "theft by finding".
