    what is this thing?

    It showed up in our backyard while we were away for a week. We had a house/dog sitter here but she says it's not hers. There were a bunch of painters here the whole week and we figured it was theirs, but they left it here, too. I tried a google image search but got nothing. It doesn't have any labels or other identifying stuff.

    Huh. Maybe the painters used a drone to inspect something. It was lying on some pea-gravel when we first saw it. I guess that's a reason to use one - to keep blowing debris up for takeoff/landing.

    I'll have to ask them if they're missing a helipad.

    Seems like a question for the non threadworthy questions thread.

    Obviously Amazon is getting you prepared for future drone deliveries.

    Any homes near yours just go up for sale?
    Drone footy of local estates is the approach around here anymore.

    But it might be a scale.

    Looks like an old school compass before we all used our phones to navigate.

    I was in Central Park this summer and there were almost a hundred of those things everywhere being played. Made me wonder is the city provided them because I couldn’t understand why there were so many. Looks fun

    Some sort of landing pad. Likely a drone.
