Who is responsible for recovering a drone?


An Ohio filmaker’s quadrotor drone was blown by the wind into a statute atop a courthouse.

Stuck: Video producer Terry Cline got his flying helicopter camera drone stuck in a rooftop statue in Marion, Ohio last week

Needed. Clear rules on the rights, duties and responsibilities for recovery.

The Onion, America’s finest news source has the rest of the story.

After a week of back-and-forth about who was responsible for retrieving the device, how it could be done and how much it would cost, it took nothing more than a man hanging out of a window with a long pole to fetch the 2-pound, 9-inch device, which is equipped with a camera and cost $1,500.

Are we chicken little’s or what. And the A.P. was the source.
