As stated, "drones are assisting in critical rescue operations."

It was good to see such a positive use of drones being demonstrated, showing their value and usefulness in several applications.


I will post a proper video link, later when it becomes available online.

Yes, but when you see this video, you'll be even more in respect of our drones.  
We are all fortunate to be here, not just the forum, but in this age of drones awakening. Still early.
I believe we have only seen the dawn of this drone era.

Good job, glad that you were available to help, and get our side some good recognition.
That's positive for sure, but most police forces have access to a variety of drones, don't kid yourself.
If the police that you helped don't have one, they will most certainly be acquiring some now.  ;-)


Which drone were you flying that day?

P4  He had attempted to break in a house about a quarter mile away. I spotted him running behind other houses.

Ok, well good news, you've made drone detective rank! ;-)

Hopefully that's a promotion and not a demotion? Haha


Talk about timing is everything? You were there, with drone in hand, when it mattered.


I wish we could have a whole thread full of good deeds and positive drone uses by our members.
There must be dozens of others, with reinforcing experiences...

Wow, you always make me surprised. Here is the coffee, maybe it's time to tell your story.
