A different kind of drone delivery

Dec 02, 2013 3 Comments by

In other news this weekend, four people were arrested in Morgan, Georgia, for trying to deliver contraband material to inmates at the Calhoun State Prison.  Police commented, “After we gained consent to search the car, we found the helicopter and I don’t know exactly how much it was but probably about one or two pounds of tobacco rolled up.” People try different methods of smuggling,  but the mini-chopper was “a surprise. I’ve never seen a helicopter.”

    This type of article should not be further disseminated. It will only harm our freedom of hobby use. It only takes one chicken little to declare RC appliances will make the sky fall and that will be that. Maybe not in the liberal USA but in many other countries.
