“Karen app” claims to bring law and order to airspace by reporting rogue drones

“Karen app” claims to bring law and order to airspace by reporting rogue drones

Mobile app Drone Scanner is now launching a “report to the FAA button,” which doesn’t stop in calling the authorities. The reporter might even become its new owner if the wild drone is captured! 

Exploring new territories, finding new frontiers, lack of formal law enforcement, and pushing the boundaries of what was possible. Airspace has been a wild west since Wright Brothers decided to fly 120 feet instead of walking it. Since then, almost everything decided to grow wings or propellers; people started gliding, parachuting, pilot helicopters and jets. The bus became Airbus; ships turned into rocket ships. Add all the drones and balloons, and you see how the wild west above our heads made airspace sheriffs’ heads spin. 

Now like their American predecessors, they are calling bounty hunters to report rogue drones. Using the app Drone Scanner, you can help turn airspace into a highly organized and controlled area. You only need to download the app and push the “report to the FAA” button. You might even be rewarded with cash or the drone as a bounty! 


This article is an April Fools Joke. Dronetag will never implement “reporting” to its Drone Scanner app while punishing anybody was never Dronetag’s goal. The company aims to achieve safe airspace by providing crucial information to airspace participants while providing the highest security and user privacy protection possible. Droneatg will never compromise on the functionality or safety of our products.

Remote ID (RID) systems do not accumulate sensitive data or put pilots in any way. On the contrary, the goal of RID is to enhance air traffic clarity, establish clear rules, and improve the safety of low-level air traffic. Our ultimate objective is to support the full development of drones and facilitate their use in industrial applications.
