"Turkish Police Shoot Down QuadCopter Over Protesters" UAS Vsion, June 27, 2013
In Istanbul, police shot down a remote-controlled quadcopter one protester was using to capture video of demonstrations in the city. The shooting down of the quadcopter was also captured on video.Protesters in Turkey accused the media of ignoring them and many Turks relied on social media and citizen journalism to learn about what was going on at protests in their country.
The video, taken in Istanbul by a protester named Jenk Kose, shows the quadcopter falling out of the sky after being shot at by the police. The quadcopter’s camera failed when it was hit, but Jenk was able to save some of the footage.
Tuesday afternoon on June 11th 2013, Police was violently attacking peaceful protestors. Police fired guns at one of our RC drone during the protests in Taksim square, Istanbul. Police aimed directly at the camera. Due to the impact on the camera (it did have a housing) the last video was not saved properly on the SD card. The camera and drone were both broken. Managed to keep the SD card. Here is the footage from that camera! This footage you are about to see is from the prior flights minutes before the incident.
