DRONE CONFRONTATION: Cops called on drone pilot in SoCal for just doing his job. Watch what happens!

DRONE CONFRONTATION: Cops called on drone pilot in SoCal for just doing his job. Watch what happens!

I was flying a drone capturing aerial photos of a construction site for a client when a neighbor approached in a hostile manner, using profanity and called the cops stating he felt uncomfortable and that I was somehow invading his privacy. I refused to leave before completing the job.

I am a Part 107 drone pilot and this flight was conducted under 14 CFR Part 107.

I was parked on a public street (NOT PRIVATE PROPERTY) and maintained visual line of sight of the drone as it flew above the construction site taking orthomosiac images of dirt.

    Just because you don’t agree/understand with someone flying drones, doesn’t make it illegal.

  2. Peter Park on December 20, 2021 at 12:07 pm

    Just leave him alone…LOL
    what a douche bag

  3. Danger Doberman on December 20, 2021 at 12:09 pm

    I’d be like, "make me". If it’s not on anyones property or in retricted airspace then I’ll do what I want. Then again I’m not a professional so you handled it well. PROPS to you. Pun intended 😀

    The white dude is an npc

  5. Ramajama on December 20, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    “Nope, just leave him alone.”

    This guy is just ignorant and it’s not even about privacy. The guy was never in his property. Just like the pilot said if he wanted to be civil his acting more like a racial phobic maniac. Privacy my ass! If he was white that guy would not have acted that way. He would start a conversation and thought that was cool. So BS this guy was not being racist. Look carefully, listen carefully, and the white guy is being racist. His body language and his attitude.

    *The most hurtful part of this l bet is when the low life said you look 40 to 41 when he damn well know you look above 30 to 31.*

  13. Capt'n on December 20, 2021 at 12:24 pm

    It could be the camera angle, but I’m very "uncomfortable" with his posture. It doesn’t look healthy.

  14. Assault Corgi on December 20, 2021 at 12:28 pm

    Nice

  15. Parish Bananarific on December 20, 2021 at 12:29 pm

  16. Benjamin Dover on December 20, 2021 at 12:32 pm

    "Go and read The Sun Newspaper about it" hahahaha that’s like saying "go and listen to what the teletubbies have to say on this!"

  17. Serge. Crispino on December 20, 2021 at 12:33 pm

    I had 100% respect for you until you mentioned the fact that you are Philippino – the guy that confronted you seems to have some kind of mental health issue – you engaged with him with empathy and respect but you tried to reason with him – 99% respect for you but you turned it around to make it seem as though you where the victim.

  18. UZI VLOGS on December 20, 2021 at 12:33 pm

    Entitled ass.. hahaha 🤣 This will be here forever and people will remember how s*** he is.

  19. Camba619 on December 20, 2021 at 12:38 pm

  20. Ogrematic on December 20, 2021 at 12:38 pm

    Have you ever used a partner to watch your back while you fly?

  21. Sol Armande on December 20, 2021 at 12:39 pm

    What a fucking Chad. Sorry you had (have?) to put up with people like this.

  22. Dan Scheele on December 20, 2021 at 12:40 pm

  25. Ashley Reese on December 20, 2021 at 12:43 pm

  26. Peter Park on December 20, 2021 at 12:44 pm

    He is afraid of a drone but not of Facebook? uh???

  27. Jason F on December 20, 2021 at 12:44 pm

    Nicer than I would’ve been. Great cool factor for you sir!

  28. Maximas Romulus on December 20, 2021 at 12:45 pm

    ✨If he called police on a relative of mine who was committing NO crime. The Karen would feel much more uncomfortable. Especially after he’s swallowing and craping out his own teeth for about a week. ✨

  29. Abdellah Maghfour on December 20, 2021 at 12:45 pm

    A fucking karen

  30. Farshad Farhadi on December 20, 2021 at 12:46 pm

    Felt so satisfying thanks for sharing

  31. Ry 52 on December 20, 2021 at 12:47 pm

    Good job. You must get harassed all the time doing your job. People are idiots, just ask nicely what he is doing an be polite and civil.

  32. Brown Sgr on December 20, 2021 at 12:47 pm

    Karen’s brother?

  33. Wicky Woo on December 20, 2021 at 12:48 pm

    The only thing that came out of that whiny Congee Spoon’s mouth was "wah wah wah wah wah na na na boo boo" (The whiny guy who called the cops).

  34. Truong Le on December 20, 2021 at 12:48 pm

    You handled that amazingly! Well done, I wouldn’t have been able to keep my composure with what that guy was saying.

  35. Michael Meier on December 20, 2021 at 12:49 pm

    „He‘s probably about 40, maybe 41“ 😀

  36. Marcus Orillius on December 20, 2021 at 12:49 pm

    I hate these odd people that fly their spy toys over ur house, probably looking for someone to spy on. Grow up

  37. Bosun21 on December 20, 2021 at 12:53 pm

    The guy is just a massive Karen

  38. MrHillhouse on December 20, 2021 at 12:53 pm

    I would have loved it if the officer had put the douche bag in his vehicle and then asked the drone operator if he wants to press charges for verbal assault and harassment. Poor douche bag would have shit himself.

  39. Leonard Barker on December 20, 2021 at 12:53 pm

    Good job wasting taxpayers money KAREN

  40. thebarak on December 20, 2021 at 12:54 pm

    A few cones around your car and a high visibility vest and surveyor signage would help keep the Karens away.

  41. John Robertson on December 20, 2021 at 12:55 pm

    Love it…! Cop at 5:22 rolls his window down…”No…leave him alone”….lol

  42. kejorafall on December 20, 2021 at 12:55 pm

    cop was pretty simple, "leave him alone"
    Doesn’t even get out of his car,
    Just leave him alone
    Nice

  43. P. Clark on December 20, 2021 at 12:56 pm

    Typical entitled white dude 🙄

  44. Marpasa Marpasa on December 20, 2021 at 12:57 pm

    Some body could help me?…There are some criminals that for some time I think they are using a drone in the attic where I live and in the crawlspace, in addition to tracking me they are poisoning me with different kinds of gases or poisons, the question is, is there any way to block them with the same technology that they use? I appreciate your help … little I know about technology …

  45. Kenneth Albritton on December 20, 2021 at 12:57 pm

    Aaaaand back to his mommies basement he goes with his tail between his legs.

  46. NUETRON 98 on December 20, 2021 at 12:57 pm

    I would have loved it if he would have flown the drone a few feet over his head hovering and following him with it. 😂

  47. Bossman Jenkins on December 20, 2021 at 1:02 pm

    Fuck drones.

  48. Daniel Munoz on December 20, 2021 at 1:02 pm

    To all those complaining about "reverse racism" and "playing the race card" … as others have mentioned, he did not accuse anybody of being racist, he just wondered if the thing would have been different if he weren’t Filipino … and I would just say that I noticed two things during the video:

    When asked on the phone for a description of the person, the guys first words were "He’s an ASIAN guy … ", which says a lot … for the police coming, I think it would be more relevant size and clothes, as from a distance facial feature will not be that recognizable

    Second … to all those that say that the guy’s concern was privacy … it was not … he was concerned about having this individual outside of his property … when told that he could see the footage to address his privacy concerns, he clearly said that he didn’t care, and then insisted about parking across the street … and that the neighbors would not be happy either … privacy was just a justification

  49. stealthmanx2 on December 20, 2021 at 1:02 pm

    Get so sick and tired of people saying I feel uncomfortable. That is the new snowflake "stranger danger" line and I am tires of it. This guy was minding his business and this jack wagon went out of his way to be just that, a jack wagon. He wasn’t to uncomfortable to get in his face.

  50. The Locust on December 20, 2021 at 1:04 pm

    You were totally in the right and legal….then youbpulled out the race card! Give me a break! That dude was an asshole no matter what.
