Obviously need to sort a way to ID the beast (so it doesn't go into the wrong hands) and arrange a handover
Drop me your email address and I'll get the holder to get in touch (it was found by a mate)
Cheers

Yeah, Malling Rec is really out of the way, isn't it?
A tool's toy.
Go and spy on cows in the countryside if you must indulge yourself.

Sorry not sure if I can direct message but my email is info@ukjoncollins.com. If you drop me a line I'll let you know the model. It's highly unlikely anyone else lost one yesterday!
Oh and "local" how about you drop me a line and we can pop down to the pub and have a chat about whatever it is that seems to upset you in private.

Drones are a bloody menace. One crashed in the grounds of the place where my friend was having her wedding reception yesterday (nowhere near Lewes, so it wasn't yours). There were children playing and people having photographs taken, so it could easily have hit someone.
They spook dogs, horses and people and the sooner they have to be registered and the owners licensed the better.

Most model aeroplane enthusiasts pay for insurance and club membership in order to minimise risks to the public. They also have to follow a training programme to be certified to fly unaided.. I can see the attraction of multi rotors but the larger ones have the capacity to cause real damage and injury to the public, not least by distracting drivers etc.

The kind of drones you're talking about have plastic rotors and the motors will cut out when they come into contact with anything solid. More chance of getting injured in the park by a dog running, some have cameras, some not. Lots of alarmist nonsense here by people who clearly have no clue what they're talking about.

I would have invited you to tell that to Fimber the police horse Crock of lies - but you can't because he was killed by a drone.

As problems go drones are way down the list. Personally I don't know anyone who's been inconvenienced by, hit by, killed by, videoed by or in any affected by a drone. Are you sure there aren't more pressing problems in the world?

So Local, I do hope you take up Jon's offer above. Brave keyboard warriors like you detested on Internet forums.

Maybe I should have specified that my comment was about quad copters of some weight and size rather than the micro toys sold for a few quid.

Jon / Towney -
Why would I waste my time going out and drinking with people who I disagree with? In my opinion, drone users are sad cases who impose their little hobby on other people - which always seems to be a cry for admiration. If you want to twiddle buttons or whatever is involved, I was suggesting you simply head off into the middle of nowhere to do it.
Oh, but there'd be no-one to spy on and no-one to show-off to, would there?
So what's keyboard-warrior about that?

You posted that drivel on an INTERNET FORM. And you seriously have the balls to accuse people of being sad, flying a drone, spending time on a form, people in glass houses?

I don't have a drone and neither do I want one, but the footage those things take is outstanding, I have a friend who films combines working with one, and the shots he gets are amazing.

It's called multi-tasking, chum. Takes about a minute to post on this forum whilst discussing it with my family, cooking or watching TV. Perhaps you have to concentrate for an hour to type each word?

The irony was totally lost on you I see, my point was what is sadder flying a drone or posting on a forum... And you've pointed out you've taken time out from family to do it. As I said people in glass houses?

Good grief. Can't you read what I said? We view and post on this forum as a family, rather like sharing news and other sources of things to discuss from the TV or radio. So whilst you might well be a loner posting on here as - in your words - sad person, I am not. Whereas back to the original subject, I would maintain that it is desperately sad for a grown man to be playing around with a toy flying machine that allows a camera or video camera to potentially annoy and snoop on other people and/or their property.

You're not winning the argument here, "posting as a family"on Lewes forums does not make you a good judge of what is "sad". doing it as a family activity makes it even sadder, Maybe you should go outside and experience life, go to the park and fly a drone? Or maybe educate yourself and watch around Britain by drone on iplayer.
