I had a drone hovering around my house last Summer, Thought it was a swarm of Wasps at first what with the loud buzzing noise, Live very rural so ran for the shotgun but on return it had gone. I did wonder if it was burglers having a look so it made me very edgey. Do not agree with them at all except for the emergency services.

Drones need to be properly controlled. They are a great tool especially for carrying out inspections of dangerous buildings or difficult locations

Indeed great potential in sar and firefighting  especially  the new heavy lift versions,  though regulation is needed

You can get small GPS collar trackers for that, comes with an app for your phone too

Thankyou, yes you can.  A friend of mine has one for one of her cats Reuben as he goes off on hunting trips into the woodlands.  They are excellent, she can pinpoint Reuben quite accurately to bring him back home.  They are expensive though which is the drawback.

They can be pretty useful for various things but like many things some people just have to be idiots with them. 😕

yep. I have seen wonderful footage from them from where I used to live, but it always takes 1 or 2 to spoil it for people who use them for a bit of fun. 

Our world in a nut shell.

Accurate summary, I'd say.

Agree for the S in SAR to an extent, but as for the R bit it's either shank's pony or a full blown chopper...🚁

That presupposes the ankle isn't likely to become detached...

I've generally found that manoeuvring them onto a stretcher makes for a better trip for them and us!

Unless of course they can walk, in which case, they walk!
