FPV goes very wrong, plane kidnapped, then....

Hilarious. This is why you want live video/telemetry in your planes!

"One of my 1st FPV attempts didn't turn out so well, it was found by some teens whose first thought wasn't to find the rightful owner until they discovered a camera on-board. A couple hours later I recovered the plane with the help of a local garbage collector and here is the edited down version of the video I found recorded after the whole ordeal had ended. "

  • Funny vid, However, you could have caused an accident with possible fatalities.
    Very irresponsible flying and one of the reasons the FAA is getting nasty with the rest of us.
    Lucky you just recorder kids picking up trash off the sidewalk and not blood and guts on the street.
  • Although we do not condone flying over a populated area you have to admit that was rather funny. Another one doges the bullet......... FOR NOW!
  • Why are you flying over such a populated area?
    Lucky you didn't hit a moving car and couse an accident
    This is why police act the way they do and people make laws
    not funny I think he should lose his plane just irresponsible
  • that is too funny.
  • Lol, that is a great video, little turds trying to steal the plane. I would have gone back and given them a talking too after seeing the footage. You need to put a label on the plane with contact details and reward offered.
