So scary!

http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/old-town-chicago-drone-299640321.html

"A couple in Chicago's Old Town neighborhood say they're a little unnerved by an errant drone that wandered into their yard.

Noemi Kopp-Tanaka noticed the small aircraft Monday, and trapped it with lawnchairs until police could carry it away…"

Anyone here going to cop to owning it? ;)

Oh S.... I just modified the battery with uranium. I could not imagine it was able to cross the atlantic. Jokes aside, people call the police even if a strange fly is molesting them, or maybe it's just a set up.

Love the way they trapped it.

Sad they live with such paranoia.

Wow, what a perfect example of the perception many people have of these devices.

"Trapped it with lawn chairs" - reminiscent of a fifties sci-fi movie.

Until the public at large is informed by a trusted source as to what UAVs are and are not, this will continue to happen and hopefully lost quadcopters will only get trapped by lawn chairs and not smashed to bits as one "astute" commenter suggested.
