I am in Canada and live a few miles south of a military base, so air traffic is nothing new. Tonight at 4am, as I was about to go to bed, I heard a helicopter which was much loader than usual. I looked out my window and it was flying quite low, and directly at my house......he flew directly overhead and continued on, no big deal. Until he circled back again......and again.......and again.....I counted 12 laps, each time with him flying directly overhead. He was so low, and making so much noise, that a few people on my block stepped outside to see what was going on. I live in a very quiet, upper middle class neighbourhood.
On the 3rd or 4th final lap, the pilot stopped and hovered even lower over a house directly across the street. He wasnt shining a spotlight, but there was a red and green light (one on each side of the chopper). He hovered there for at least a couple of minutes, it looked like the helicopter was facing away from my house, but I cant be certain. After this, he gained altitude, did 2-3 more identical laps, and then took off, back towards the city, AWAY from the miltary base....definitely not a military chooper, is was the cops for certain.
I am not a paranoid person and this is not paranoia.....before this event, I have been coo and calm, and didn't even consider my small grow to be a very big risk due to all of my precautions. My biggest risk is likey posting here on GC....I'm starting to wonder if that is a good idea.
What do I do? Do I abort? Immediately? After the second or third lap, I killed the light and fan. I use a carbon scrubber and vent out my dryer vent.
Please let me know what I should do.....I am totally freaking out!

And i understand your worry, one night i was out on my porch enjoying a joint in complete darkness, it was really late like 1ish. I am already pretty high and i think i hear a lady talking, but i just dismissed it as my imagination because it was so faint. Well it started getting closer and closer and i am petrified with fear, i mean who goes for walks at 1:30 in the morning:confused:? She finally came into view and its this middle aged lady talking on a cell phone. I could have sworn i head her say to the person on the phone that she could see me. Freaked me out but i am alright if anything i just keep a closer eye out.
And this was when i just started my first small grow

I hope your right. I was baked to the gills when it happened which definitely escalated my panic level!
The red and green lights are night time anti collison lights. Usualy when thier flying in a circular pattern in one area their looking for someone.

Did you slowly ease into your grow so it wouldn't show up as a red flag on your electric bill?

He could have been doing laps looking for drunk drivers, or stolen cars.
didnt know they look for drunk drivers in a helicopter...
that would sketch me out to but as long as its not real hot in your grow room you should be good... lol as i hear helicopter! the heat usually dissipates when being transfered to the vent leading outdoor so even the hot heat pulled out of your room should be cool when i reaches outdoor. why dont you call the police department and say what the fuck is going on? maybe they'll tell you.. if not, you may start to worry!

Bump. Anyone else? Am I in trouble? Anything to worry about?
If they didnt have a spotlight going they were probably using FLIR looking for someone. I live in a medical marijuana state and near a hospital and we have helicopters fly over all the time day and nite. Your only running 600 watts, the amount of heat generated is less then your toaster oven.

I am going to proceed with caution while keeping a close eye out for anything suspicious. Thanks again guys!
