    LOLZ, That’s NOTHING. Wait until Amazon sends drones to carry packages…haha, who are the field techs going out to find these things when they get shot down or roped in? So stupid. Then disable the gps by shoving it in your microwave (faraday cage) and then….well, I guess you got yourself a drone. Idiots.
