Amaq- Drone Find September 2017

Amaq video release of less than thirty seconds, showing a group of ‘teenagers’ finding a unmanned aerial survaillance drone. The crew kick it about  and play with the camera which catches the reciprocating camera man recording the event.

Being identified may be a minor concern to the crew, but the tracking and GPS components on the UAV are possibly still relaying telemetry back to who ever was operating it. In many parts of the world rewards for lost hobby drones fill forums as fly aways happen to novice pilots, this would likely be replicated in these conflict areas, locals returning found equipment would be reimbursed for thier trouble. 

There is also the concept that if one has crashed there may be another one looking for it. The instinct of keeping away from crash sites which could be traps is learnt through trial and error..?
