Lost drone update #藤前干潟 #ドローン

On Sunday I found a drone on a tidal mudflat at Fujimae / 藤前干潟 near Nagoya Port. Immediately on social media I reached out to look for the owner, but there was no response. I even contacted DJI Japan with the serial number, but they don’t have the owner on records.

So, finally today I phoned the police, told them I will be bringing in a drone that has a lithium ion battery that had probably been submerged in sodium chloride solution (sea water), and so may be dangerous. I went in, questions were asked, and papers were filled in. I was asked if it was unclaimed after 3 months if I wanted it; I said no. It’s probably irreparable anyway. They asked if I needed a reward; I said no. 

Job done. I hope the owner will at least get the memory card back. 

Flattr this!

Found drone. If it’s yours, tell me the serial number.

The drone was found on the mud flats upside down, with a jellyfish on it. It obviously had been awash with salty sea water and so it may be dead anyway.

Update: Got the footage, and it seems the drone belongs to this guy with the controller. He and his buddy look so happy and proud. Contact me.

Update:
I’ve contacted DJI Japan asking if they can match the serial number on the drone with the owner. Their reply, below, says that they don’t not have the contact details. Next step: Drop it in at a police station. I’ve started to use #藤前干潟 on social media, as that seems to show the right location on Instagram and Twitter. If you can share this blog post with that hashtag, I’m sure it will help.
