Well it’s Christmas, at least close enough. Are you looking for the perfect drone pilot present, then how about this, it’s simple, cheap, and appropriate?
  
  • Get a stone,
  • This should be about fist size.
  • One side should be slightly convex
  • The stone should not be porous in nature.
  • House bricks and concrete are not suitable.

  
Here are some perfect examples:

Now you have the stone, copy the following notification and print it out.

If you like the drone pilot then gift wrap both the stone and the note, perhaps even in a nice presentation box and put it under the Christmas tree. If you don’t particularly like the drone pilot then wrap the stone inside the note and deliver it through a closed window.

This technology goes back a bit; it originated in a guide to Mammoth hunting, so it is said.

Oh hell, I forgot to mention, to get it to work properly you have to update the SW* regularly, to do this simply connect the stone to the environment by placing it in an exposed position outside.

* = Stoneware

Laughter is the best medicine; it is nice to see people find it amusing. I do believe however, that this can also be used as a serious present.

That strange black thing that hangs in the German Bundestag is supposed to be an eagle. In consideration however, of the way the German politicians are behaving at the moment, then vulture is far more pertinent.

Haha - very clever. But you forgot to mention that it must be used in compliance with appropriate guidelines.
Can't use it in built-up areas (no sunlight), can't use it in populous areas (keeps getting kicked over), can't use it within proximity to airports or helipads (small rocks could get sucked up into a jet engine or rotor blade), nor in National Parks (again, those $*%#@ trees stop sunlight).

Aloha and Drone On!

Thank you, never seen this version before.

Like other forecasts this might also seem to not be bullet proof, a few other interpretations:

Can't see the stone | Someone just thrown a stone after a drone
Stone has gone | same as above
Stone is Wet | sorry didn't realize it was your weather stone, i just peeed on it - just have fun ...

Hi, KedDK, you are absolutely right of course. It is not bullet proof, it must be used with a degree of intelligence and technical understanding, and interpreted with a fine feeling for right and wrong. This is of cause what makes it so appropriate for drone pilots. Aside, bullet proof is not necessarily bullet proof, take for example the case of the unsinkable Titanic.

Ok Ked, you win, now I have a real bad conscience. But I did find this, it might be more suitable.
