    No. The shooter must be stationary.

    There are many possible causes for false alerts. Sometimes you can narrow it down, sometimes not. See the FAQ.

    No more than usual. It's always been this bad!

    Yes, the ZR4s false a lot. On sunny days it seems worse, probably from reflections and such, so it's not just LCCs that cause these falses. This is one of the main reasons I switched to LIs. The false alert rate of LIs is maybe 5% of the ZR4's.

    Yes, you can shoot lidar from a chopper but it will not give a reading.

    I get a lot of false alerts from cars with the adaptive driving..... just recently a BMW325 in city driving. I had to get about 10 feet away from his bumper before I got an alert. It happened 3 times while I was behind the guy.
