Who thinks a Spark could be launched out of your home window when there is something suspicious going on in the neighborhood or around your house? Signal loss would prevent it? Who wants to try it? Where are those guys that abused that Spark?

You could really launch from anywhere as long as you're flying LOS. I doubt you're going to sneak up on any criminals with something that loud though.

Scaring them off would be an acceptable outcome.

It's hard to RTH though concrete if you lose signal.

Yes, I thought of that. If you had an above ground deck or passenger pigeon perch to take off and land from. Or you could stick a pizza box on a pole out the window.

This is not allowed in my country, Netherlands. You must not fly over populated areas. I am also too close to an airport, e.g. In a nofly zone.

It might be a good crime deterrent if you threw the Spark at the would be criminal. :)

Where I live the thieves would steal the Spark as it flew by them.
