At this point, I am sure the FAA is aware of it and even if the guy whose drone got shot doesn't want to pursue this that is not to say the FAA won't.
I do think Mr. Allreds attitude is exceptionally enlightened and I wish him well.
Interesting point with his All Care insurance for DJI, if they do decide that Mr. Allred is covered it would be up to them to sue the duck hunter - drone assassin in civil court if they so desired.
My guess is that DJI will "duck" (pun intended) coverage - act of God or misguided duck hunters, perhaps.

Note to new DJI Inspire 2 pilot Mr. Allred, don't start out by flying your multi-thousand dollar quadcopter over a lake, frozen or not, even with the full coverage insurance you are just inviting disaster.

Best Regards,


Do not use your copter to harass a hunter. Almost every state has laws that get you a misdemeanor for doing such. I am sure this dork knew he was bugging the hunters. he had it comming

utah code.
