    Default Flying Helicopter Drone Visits the Horses!

    Look how close this helicopter drone gets to the horses about 2:05 into the video and the horses' reactions! You may have drones visiting your farm and not even know it! These things cost about $2000, can go anywhere, and are easy to use remotely.

    Nice looking horses.

    Wish they'd kicked the thing out of the air and stomped on it.

    How many flies have horses kicked out of the air and stomped on?

    Yes folks, the following conversation was recorded in the near future:

    "Hey, let's go check out that nice horse for sale at Flying Acres Farm!"

    "Sure. I'll get the drone fired up and we can take a look how he moves around in the field while waiting for the pizza delivery!"

    I wonder how legal it would be for the horses' owner to shoot that thing out of the sky. It is harassing livestock!

    Well you had better practice skeet or clay pigeon shooting with a gun first. It's hard to hit a moving target if you haven't done it before, particularly one that is capable of dodging quickly.

    It's certainly not illegal to fly a drone over your property. You don't own the airspace.
