Penalty flag: offsides. A man recently lost his unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) on top of the Dallas Cowboys' domed stadium in Arlington, Texas.

According to an article on Star-Telegram, the man was using his remote-controlled quadcopter to capture footage near AT&T Stadium when the radio-transmitter connection with the UAV disappeared.

He later flew a second UAV over the stadium and in the surrounding area – the footage of which was posted online, therefore alerting the Federal Aviation Administration, which is ‘looking into it to determine what [the] next steps might be,’ a spokeperson told the Star-Telegram.

The vehicle has since been recovered by authorities and will be back in the hands of the owner.
