    Pretty nice drone if it can reach an altitude of 1,750 and still be remove-controlled. Probably not a Parrot AR.drone controlled with a pringles-canned iPhone. ;)

    Yeah the AR drones are toys... but from the description it might be someone getting "enterprising" about aircraft shots at JFK, probably using one of the big Draganfly drones to take pictures (although that would be pushing right up against the ceiling of those things).

    Or it could be a surveillance drone test by NYPD gone wrong...

    Given the cost of those drones, it would also be pushing right up against the financial ceiling for most people. :)

    Something like that would be my guess for the most likely culprit. In which case we'll probably never find out.
