“Dear PoPville,

Have you heard from you readership of late regarding a helicopter drone flying over Petworth/16th Street Heights? My neighbors and I first noticed the drone about 1-1/2 weeks ago flying at night (typically right after sundown) with a red and green lights on the fore and aft. It appears to be taking off from the vicinity of Upshur Park. The latest sighting was this past Sunday when it flew for upwards of an 1-1/2 hours, climbing in altitude and zig-zaging around the neighborhood. At one point it hovered over my house at an altitude of about 150 feet and I could clearly hear the engines whirring. It appears to be the type of helicopter drone you can purchase from Amazon or other retailers. Thoughts as to the origin and purpose?”

Maybe it’s for a real estate video?
