$80,000 rescue drone for Labrador

"A $5,000 drone could have been purchased in place of the more expensive unit, but Blackmore said the higher expenditure stems from a situation where SAR was searching for a young person with autism and the search carried into the night.

The cameras were the selling point. There is no other helicopter in the province that has infrared capabilities, Blackmore said, adding that the daytime optical zoom camera can zoom in on Brigus from where Wednesday's demonstration was held in Paradise.
That's just over 75 kilometres in distance. "

I like that there are so many options in drones now.

helicopter and drone almost collide

I'm going to venture the drone pilot was at fault; flying too high, in a restricted area, didn't inform anybody.
