Somebody did blast an R/C model out of the air in Lubbock a while back. This was near a park that was a favorite with model flyers. There had been some complaints about the noise from neighbors, but the particular model that was hit was one of the relatively quiet phone battery electrical types. The flyer heard 2 shots and his model fluttered down into the street in several pieces. Police forensics determined that it was a victim of 12 gauge #5 shot. The cops combed the area but were unable to find the perp. I wonder if the shooter was a noise complainer or, given the model’s relative silence, some kook who thought he had spotted an Obammunist stealth drone.
