Less than 24 hours after discovering a lost drone in his yard, Fairbanks resident Ed Trump found its owner by enlisting the help of the fellow amateur radio operators.
Trump contacted the News-Miner on Tuesday after discovering the drone while walking his dog in his yard on Monday night and hoped to get the drone back to its owner. A similar drone sells for about $130 online.
He said he returned it to its owner, a Pioneers’ Home resident, after asking fellow amateur radio operators if they knew of any people looking for lost drones. One had heard about the lost drone while visiting the senior care center the day before, and Trump returned the gadget.
