Two self-described techies are mourning the loss of the their new drone which went missing over the weekend as they flew their latest toy over the Panhandle.
"My buddy was showing off and took it really high and lost control of the signal and it just floated away," says Max Johnson, who isn't the owner of the drone, but was at the scene when it disappeared.
"We believe it fell over on Oak Street between Masonic and Clayton, possibly up Page Street," he adds.
What makes the loss even more devastating is that they had a "pretty expensive" GoPro attached to the quadcopter. Being the overly equipped tech bros that they are, the duo used their other drone to fly above the crash site, scanning for the lost gadget.
When nothing turned up, they papered the neighborhood with flyers, offering a reward to anyone who returned the drone. Johnson wouldn't say how much the item cost, nor would he reveal how much they are willing to pay to get the gadget back.
And at this point, they're losing hope, he says, adding that SF Weekly is the first one to call regarding the quadcopter. "I'm almost certain someone picked it up and kept it," Johnson says.
So if you happened to come across a drone that doesn't belong to you, and you could use a little extra money and some good karma, then call the above number. Max and his buddy would really appreciate it.
