Jeez, I never sent my $500 quadcopter out over the lake that we are right next to because I didn't want some failure to cause me to lose the thing.

But that's because I was spending my own money instead of someone else's.

Citizens of Montgomery County should be on high alert tonight; the sheriff's office's ability to fight crime has been crippled after this tragic accident while they played with their helicopter over a lake. I mean, trained with it over the weekend.

Typical sensationalism. The drone doesn't cost $300000, the entire system does. The helicopter can be replaced for a few thousand dollars. Even if they find it, it is probably a total loss due to water damage.

You're asserting that the drone part of the drone system is the least expensive part?

$300,000 is the price of the SYSTEM, including training for the operators. The actual cost of the helicopter is probably a few thousand dollars, the most expensive component that was lost is probably the FLIR, which if it is good will cost upwards of $20,000.

So it's a few thousand dollars, plus $20K for FLIR, plus whatever other options? That's sounding like it's getting pretty expensive pretty quickly.

Too bad the expensive training didn't mention not flying it over large bodies of water.

My point is that they didn't lose a $300,000 drone -- it is substantially less than that.
