Toy drones and model helicopters could cause power cuts according Scottish Hydro Electric Power Distribution. The company is concerned that they could cause problems for its electricity network. SHEPD is urging newbie pilots to steer a course away from substations and overhead lines.

If a model aircraft or drone does fall into a substation, don’t to go in after it – contact SHEPD’s Emergency Service Centre instead.
