Drone in 3A on 7/2/16

Post by JPerkins323 »

So I was cruising east probably around 5 pm this Saturday headed back from the swimming hole just west of possum head. I was cruising along nice and slow at 1,500 RPMs drinking a beer and enjoying the glades when that white drone come up behind me on the trail, buzzed my head, pointed the camera right at me as I was still trying to figure out what was going on, seemed like it gave me a wink then flew off into the glades just as fast as I came up lol and as far as I could see there was no body els around! Lol for a second I considered pouring my beer out thinking maybe I had drank too much that day. But if any one has that video of me almost jumping out of my seat, you should defiantly post it up lol I'm sure every one would get a good chuckle out of it. I was in the '55 Chevy blue 0540 boat. Figured it was worth a shot. I got a kick out of it.

You did mean 7/2 and not 4/2 didn't you ?

I for one, hope it was somebody here and not from somebody else. Image

Yes deano no idea why I said that. It was this weekend. I probably exaggerated a little bit it wasn't that low but it did startle me and I'd love to see the video.

Heck, that ain't nothing but an easy typo on the number pad. I only mentioned it because your chance of finding that that person would probably be better if you changed it. You can edit that thread title in your first post if you look above the text entry box.

That hasn't happened to me, but I could see where it would be more than quite startling.

I saw 2 out at the test and tune early in the day. I assume 1 was Gladesman and I did see a lady/girl 4 boats down launch one. Long day so all I can say is it was a girl on a floating boat.
