Rotorman...excellent statement. I have recently joined the drone hobby with my Typhoon H. In the past, I did fly real, single-engine airplanes while working towards my Private Pilot license. Although I do not fly real planes any longer, I clearly remember how much responsibility the pilot has when flying any aircraft - including hot-air balloons. When you gain that perspective and experience, I can assure you that I will never fly my drone that would endanger anyone flying an aircraft. But you are right..my Typhoon H cost me much more than $500. Fortunately, almost everyone I have encountered on this forum look at their drone as an aircraft, not as a toy.
Regarding your statement about the really cheap drones...We have a number of children with toy drones in our neighborhood (e.g., Syma x4c). Many of them have flown their drones seemingly very high. I was curious as to how high, so I brought my Typhoon H to 120 ft AGL and asked the kids to fly above me. None of them could. Between 80 and 120 feet they lost communication with their drone. The drone suddenly dropped rapidly in altitude until their transmitter could communicate with the drone again, then they regained control.
Based on this experience, I sincerely hope that the significant majority of the cheap drones will never cause you trouble when flying your helicopter.
