Cicada Saved From Bird Being an adult Cicada is a very dangerous life. There are many hazards to avoid from the time they come out of their long underground nymph stage. I often see Cicadas who have escaped a bird attack, sometimes they have a limb missing or damaged wings. The way Cicadas get around the constant threat of bird attack is by having huge populations so they outnumber their prey. But one short flight to freedom can spell the end of a life. Nature seems so cruel, but a bird needs to eat as well.

FAA Violation. FPV drone Pilot on Collision course with Airline. Near Miss. Some guy in the United States, an FPV quad racer flies in the Path of and Airliner. What a knob. Seriously. This is not a joke. Not CGI, this is real. For a 10 second moment of fame. Even if there would be no harm. You just cant get over this level of stupidly. What Drone U has to say. Drone U Leadership and the entire membership community want to join with other industry leaders to fully CONDEMN this reckless and criminal act.
Drone U and it’s members work tirelessly in making our skies safe for all users of the National Airspace System. This pilot's actions not only endangered the flying public, but has the potential to discredit an entire sUAS industry. It is the opinion of Drone U and it’s members that the pilot receive swift and just punishment for this example of irresponsible and reckless flight.
There is no excuse for this type of criminal behavior.
