  • isn't it illegal to fly rc helicopters over state roads???? Also this activity puts drivers at risk. I say hunters and property owners should show up with their RC's the same time these harassers show up and all go flying at the same time. That will make the police stop these asses from harassing property owners with their unsafe toys over state roads.
