A Fraserburgh man is searching for his £1500 drone after a technical hitch caused it to go missing during a flight on August 3.
Kristopher Taylor was flying the hi-tech Phantom 1 Drone behind the leisure centre in Fraserburgh when it stopped responding to his commands.
Kristopher said: “This is an extremely rare fault that can occur in maybe 1 in 10 thousand.
“It’s designed so it would land safely on a roof or in a garden or anywhere.”
Kristopher is making an appeal to anyone who has seen the white drone with red stripes which is fitted with a go-pro at the bottom.
The Phantom 1 Drone can fly up to a mile away from the operator.
Kristopher said: “It flew in a north-east direction.”
He added: “It was from behind the leisure centre over to the direction of the library when I saw it go down. it could be anywhere within 200 to 300 yards.”
A drone hunt of over 30 people turned up to search for the missing unmanned aerial vehicle.
A Facebook post asking about the whereabouts of the missing aircraft has also garnered 500 shares.
Anyone with information on the missing drone should contact Kristopher on 07482233669.
