While out driving Monday I saw Drone hanging from the powerlines in Burlington, IL.

It is on the north side of Plank Rd. Just east of Main St. It looks to have a deployed chute.

Not sure of brand but not a Phantom.

Good luck.

With a telephoto lens the drone in the wires would no be too far away
for a picture.

Whatever you do, “DO NOT” try to retrieve it. Call the Power Utility. It’s not worth taking the chance. The line is almost for sure energized, and should be treated as being so. There are no second chances when it comes to high voltage.

Drove thru this area last week and it was gone. Hopefully returned to it's owner by ComEd when they fished it out of the wires.

Not too far away for a picture, but when driving past not practical. I'm guessing here but probably not that many drones lost in the area that visual id would be needed.
