To the Moron Flying the Quad Over I-290 Elk Grove Village IL
I will be the first to admit, we do a lot of dumb stuff here at Big Squid RC. Sure we launch things off roofs, sure we crash planes into cars, sure we drop quads out of the sky to hit them with a shovel, but we always do it as safely as possible.
This morning, on my way into the office near Elk Grove Village in Illinois on I-290, I spotted a large scale quadcopter about 150 feet OVER the 4 lane highway grabbing video footage. I would of snapped a picture, but I was busy trying to drive! This was much larger than a 350 size, all black (from what I could see) and flying with traffic right over the highway. Come on people! This is why we can’t have nice things! This is why there are going to be so many laws in a couple of years you’ll be lucky if you can buy something bigger than a 180 size! Don’t be stupid! Use some common sense! At least try and meet a couple of guidelines! For a second I thought this could almost be a police drone because there was an officer about a mile up the road, but I can’t imagine they would be that careless either. If that thing goes down in rush hour traffic, it’s going to be a big pile up!
Does Big Squid RC really need to be the voice of reason here?
