Idiots like this completely ruin the perception of drone pilots.
Somehow he managed to violate literally half of the rules listed in Part 107:
Violated 107.5 (made a fraudulent or intentionally false record of registration)
Violated 107.7 (didn't have any of the legally mandated documents in possession)
Violated 107.9 (most likely didn't report the crash as required because a matrice of any kind is >$500 in event of total loss)
Violated 107.12 (no RPIC certificate)
Violated 107.13 (aircraft was not registered with a real registration)
Violated 107.15 (continued flying after in-air collision)
Violated 107.19(d) (literally didn't follow any regulations)
Violated 107.23 (reckless flying over obviously open-air assemblies and deliberately attempting to sabotage other aircraft)
Violated 107.37 (failed to give way to other aircraft)
Violated 107.39 (flying over obviously open-air assemblies)
Violated 107.41 (flying in controlled airspace without authorization)
Violated 107.43 (same as above)
Violated 107.49(f) (flying over people uncategorized)
 
I agree 100%. Reckless people do nothing to help the drone community.

A M300/350 RTK could do some major damage to people on the ground.

I guess luck and well-built drones saved the day.

Also who has the money to possibly damage their drone by hitting anything with it?

Who are you complaining about? The big drone or the small drone?
 
The pilot needs to be made an example of FOR SURE!
Let me ask a question of the maker of that video-Are you 100 percent SURE That is Mr. Ramirez- looks like him to me too- BUT Maybe its his twin brother, or his cousin, or just some guy that looks like Mr. Ramirez- Has Mr. Ramirez confessed? I ask only because you just accused Mr.Ramirez of gosh knows how many crimes and you did it on YouTube. sooo......I'm NO Saul Goodman BUT Dude.....

Great job finding this scumbag. Please let us know what you hear from the FAA.

It's fairly uncommon for the "Reporting Party" to get any type of update other than "We are going to look into it." Just like most other investigative agencies, it's not productive to "announce" the details of an investigation and there are privacy issues etc at hand.

I'd say we should ask @Vic Moss if this one has come up in any of his FAASTeam meetings.

The FAA doesn't publicly report on any active investigations, and rarely on completed ones.

Many time they invoke the Pilot's Bill of Rights, which keeps the outcome private.

Great work. Very impressive. I love animals, too. I hope they get these guys.

Agreed. Let the FAA and other law enforcement handle it. For reals, if this guy is wrong, he could face charges himself. Bottom line if ya see something horrible film it for proof, report it to the correct authorities and move on.
 
Trying to ram a Matrice with a Mavic 3, lol.

Be smart and strap a small net under that Mavic 3 at least... or just shoot it down 😆

PS: That's why I never stand still more than enough time to take the pic, static drones are an easy target and sets off the people around, while a moving drone is more prone to be seen as just flying by.

Amazing. Maybe a record of the most FAA laws broken in a single event?Hope they get this guy.
Not a fan of FAA coming down on pilots usually - but this guy deserves all he gets...

Also love to know what equipment the SHARK people are using. ....

*** Hadn't read all the comments. I see its an Matrice 300 RTK possibly. Nice...
