"We were operating a small unmanned aircraft that looks similar to a helicopter Wednesday June 23rd, near Desert Ridge High School at Crismon & Baseline in Mesa. The aircraft looks very similar to a hobby type radio controlled helicopter. It has eight propellers in an octogon configuration. it is an expensive piece of equipment that we lost communication with at about 7AM. We believe it may have been able to fly as far as 2-4 miles north and/or west of Desert Ridge High School
near Crismon & Baseline Rd.
We are offering $1,000 reward for the return of this aircraft.
What, no doggie tracking collar?!? I feel your pain, my first UAS was a flyaway - since then I ALWAYS have some sort of onboard emitter (RF,ultrasonic,visual) for emergency tracking purposes. May the Force be with you in finding it.
