A fun video shot at our July 2017 monthly launch.

Please note that the drone was positioned very far away from the launch pad, and as you can see in the video, on the opposite side of the lakebed from the launch control. In the very very small chance that a rocket would have hit the drone, it would have been over the lakebed with no people anywhere near it.
