Those are almost certainly antennae on the bottom of that thing. Given how small they are, it’s either snooping cell phone traffic or wifi.

Any whod like to be added to the RR ping-list, pls FReepmail me at Reaganite Republican -TIA
Any good duck load will be sufficient!
Shadows against a clear blue sky? Probably photo’d against a blue table cloth. I call BS.
On a side note I wish I had a drone that was also some form of wi-fi hotspot, I say that because of another news event on the Gulf of Mexico of the stranded carnival ship, Triumph.
From what I have been hearing and that itself is very sparse because carnival is keeping the passengers from communicating what is really happening.
There has been food fights, people are pooping in bags and sleeping in tents on the open deck, no running water or sanitation, no cell phone usage. The very few who are getting out have used sat phones or relayed messages to a passing ship, they are literally prisoners.
Seeing as how these buffoons already shot up three innocent people who do not even come close to the description of Dorner, the denizens of CA should be afraid. Very afraid.
check out how high they have to fly... if they fly below a certain altitude they are in violation of FCC regs. If they are over your property, and your land is a certain acerage (5 acers here in VA.) you can shoot it down....
I can hear Ron Silver from the grave “Hey those are OUR drones now.”
“I am perpetual/I keep the country clean.”
If I were to get something like this and just have it hovering over say ... police headquarters or a federal building or maybe the neighborhood of some high profile politician how long would it take the laws to get changed?
think that is a concern look at the future
Awww. You mean you don’t trust your government? Government is really nice people, they would neeeeevvvveeer violate innocent citizens’ rights. They would never snoop on people without a warrant. They would never violate our rights.
Wierd, unknown word at Free Republic.
It looks like a hobby helicopter that can carry a compact video camera. I saw one demonstrated that looked similar a few weeks back.
On the other hand, Oakland is a longstanding Holder city with a pretty bad gang problem so a few well-placed hellfire missiles on that city might be considered urban renewal.
FUBO & FAD
Looks like one of these.
Not US military, for private sale. Located in Greece.
Hmm. In Oakland, they call that a drone. In my neck of the woods, we call that a “target.”
I’m sure the military models are hardened, high flying and fast making them difficult (or impossible) to shoot down with small arms, but the thing pictured here would be a sitting duck. Think what a net would do to that thing let alone a few rounds of 556.
