Looks like that video is down now, but even without it, I'm calling shenanigans. This fellow could distinguish the wingspan and model of a drone from the ground at night time? Why would they military drones be doing circles around Daniel Island? The only logical explanations would be a) they are in transit, or b) they are being tested. If they were in transit, they wouldn't circle around repeatedly, and if they were some special drones being tested, they would be over a secluded area with unchanging weather conditions (like the desert). So . . . is the implication that these are military drones burning thousands of dollars worth of fuel per hour, for the express purpose of spying on suburban yuppies? Shenanigans.
"Charleston needs more bike lanes. Good luck.
I do wonder who's paying the rent for this office. Donations?"
While this article failed to mention it, other coverage has stated that the first year's rent for that space was paid by an anonymous donor.

I saw this same exact thing back in 08 flying over the Charleston harbor and the same thing was spotted in New York the day before Hurricane Irene hit. Weird.
"According to Heindel, the aircraft had a V-shaped or triangular 'stealth-like' construction and a wingspan of 30 to 40 feet."
That size is way beyond recreational. That sounds like the US drone that Iran brought down: http://edition.cnn.com/2011/12/12/world/me…
Welcome to Charleston! Your assistance (and expertise) is greatly needed, and I'll say it for all bicyclists (whether they know what you do or not), thank you.
The "drone" as he is calling them looked like a jet. You could see that it had the correct lights, and it even sounded like a jet when it went over them. People don't realize that sound travels differently over water. If the jet is moving towards them, then they are not going to hear the jet engine coming until it's right up on them.
No posts get more responses than to say something negative about bike lanes.
i'll resist the urge. Good luck Kurt.
tinfoil hat alert !!
Maybe its a drone from http://www.fletc.gov/about-fletc/locations…
Check it out on google maps. That area is interesting.
If u drive all the way back thru the navy base to the public boat landing... u drive by the security checkpoint for Fletc. and all of the buildings on the federal complex land are secured by razor wire fences and black blocking on the fences so you can't see inside.
It's probably a new toy for the almighty Chef Brock. Husk is now Farm-to-Drone-to-Table. Probably just a few pounds of peaches to make some cobbler at Husk. NBD.
The bacon from Benton's comes in tonight.
I saw something similar in Columbia. I was like a very slow moving fireball, flying very low, with no noise. There were also 2 helicopters following at a distance behind it.
Is it a stealth fighter? I can't tell from the video how large it is...or it may be camera drones that anyone can purchase now online....and fly them anywhere. Our privacy is now limited to the inside of our homes and then even infared devices can detect our presence...welcome to the new world!
It's most likely a camera drone, I've seen a lot of people use it. They're like toys.
Probably Amazon trying to deliver a hot tub to T-Rav,
Can you imagine what a letdown it would be for aliens stumbling upon their first Earthlings and it's people from Mt. Pleasant and Daniel Island?
what is wrong with uber competing with cab companies? doesn't that work better for the consumer ... you know, the free market idea .....wow
"....it will arrive 2 hours later."
If at all. And forget scheduling a hire to the airport, unless making your flight is strictly optional.
You can call a cab and it will arrive 2 hours later.
Hilarious, tylerdurden2323, fucking hilarious.
You know what I can do with my smart phone now, you twit? I can call a fucking cab. Yep. I can use an app on my phone to call a cab. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT???? I can call a cab from my smart phone, and a cab will arrive.
There are less than 300,000 residents in the Charleston region. There is nearly no necessity for local off-duty cabbies to be running in between fares to one-off fares. This is not Manhattan or Chicago.
You are hilarious.
