You can hear the tires squealing all day long but cannot see inside as its contained by a large wall. Do you think the would get pissy if someone flew a drone in there for recon ? I don't own/never operated a drone.

Yes they would likely mind.

What you could do is fly it straight up over your property until it can see over the wall.
Don't think they could do much about that. Then again they do have an army of lawyers...

Pissy would be an understatement. Corporate espionage to get a leg up on the competition is the reason they have those walls.

No. I recently had surgery on both knees. I sit at home/ can't do anything and think of all kinds of dumb shit. The walls seem to be closing in on me, I think I'm going crazy.

Bring me pics of the new Ranger.  Make sure to get good enough interior shots to see what kind of transmission it has.

I flew over a test track in AZ in a little airplane maybe 1500' agl. They had garages along the track and they would pull into them while flying over.

Depends how tall the walls are and IIRC personal airspace over your property is 100 feet. So unless the wall is 100 feet they have no legal standing.

I see all the new test models driving around in a black and white striped covering with padded front and rear ends so you can't tell exactly how they look. No ranger size trucks in the zebra stripes, only F series.

Drone?  Heck, I'd do a tethered blimp with a webcam. They might pay you to shut it down.

Just what I was going to recommend.  I knew a guy that did aerial photography of houses and property for real estate agents by using a camera mounted to a small blimp.

Romeo - MPG?
Dearborn - DDC?

Where do you live?
DDC used to be an Army airfield.....
I work at Ford's AZ PG......they take a very dim view of low flying aircraft.
How do I know.....I have regular chats with the FAA FSDO.

I have offered to lead the aircraft with tracers, but I wasn't taken up on that.

I probably know the guys doing the squealing.

Ford doesn't own the airspace. If there are no flight estrictions over their property, you can fly a drone over it.

Coyote Mustang? I've been told they have a unique sound due to the crank phasing.

A friend of mine works there. He used to be one of the guys hammering on them there and would go to the U.P. in the winter and out to AZ also.

He took a different position there a few months ago. No sure how much time he is out on the test track now.
