They don't send out the pot copters until late July and Aug. The plants are a lot easier to spot when they're 4'--5' tall than now.

Black Choppers looking for a half dozen plants? Ain't gonna happen my friend. They're not interested in your grow.

IF someone does happen to put a chopper up for weed, (it's not done very often unless they already know about a big grow), they won't be messing with you. They're looking for someone with several thousand plants. With a little outside grow, you have more to worry about with rip off artists and forest rangers than you do anything that flys.

The US Coastguard uses a plane called an E2C for crop ID's, boat trafficking and air trafficking of MJ. It's the plane you've seen that has a big dome thing on the top.

E2C's travel at 300 mph and take high resolution photography that is examined later by analysts. If they see a grow on their pics and they are sure it's pot, then yes, they'll make a call and whoever owns that piece of ground is getting a visit from a bunch of cops.

The drug cops have found this method to be much more effective use of our tax dollars than using the fabled "Black Helo's".

At 300 mph, they get a lot of ground covered. They only look for the grows that are at least a couple of dozen plants. Even then, they won't check if they think it's natural vegetation.

Don't let that paranoia get you man. Loose lips cause way more busts at your level of growing. Most go down because some one talked too damn much.

I concur with SB.
In The Emerald Triangle, they have a copter owned/operated by CAMP (Campaign Against Marijuana Plantations), and who are state cops, patrol these 3 counties.
Again, there are looking for HUGE plantations, busts that make the news (to justify continued funding). They don't rappel down ropes out of the helicopter(they love to do that) for small grows.
Luckily California's broke and recently they have scaled back operations.
In addition, everyone out here hates those people. No one will rent rooms to them or serve them food.
Don't worry unless copters unless you have a large grow (50 or more plants depending on locale).

Northern Cal. Mendo, Humboldt, and Trinity Counties I believe. Some of the most beautiful land you will see. Love the north coast.
