    I only have a few neighbors, live on a lake..... I am trying to find this tractor in the over growth woods my neighbors told me about, it was abandoned years ago when it was clear cut.

    That's what I was thinking too, seen a bunch of side job adds from Realtors wanting to hire people with drones.

    Something to do that might be fun...

    You first need to declare the reason for buying one, what are you going to use it for? It's like deciding to buy a car or a pair of shoes. They are driven, or worn for different purposes. Then set a budget. You can spend less than a thousand or many thousands.

    Rots'o'ruck, GI. I hear Federal prison can be educational. You own your land, but not the airspace over it. Add to this, the Feds consider drones "aircraft", which is why operators need to be registered. Shooting one down is seen as shooting down an aircraft over your land.

    Is it OK to shoot down a drone over your house? - CNN.com
    This is a trend. People have shot down drones in southern New Jersey and rural California as well. It's illegal, and they get arrested for it.

    Drones are replacing traditional aircraft and pilots for several jobs such as photographing real estate, checking out power links, police monitoring of traffic, etc.
