Location: Davenport, FL
Shape: Circle
Duration:~7 seconds
Red circle object hovered moved 200 feet South then back to location and descended with no sound

Noticed a red circle less than a 1/4 mile North of my location. The circle was a steady red color it never blinked. It was above a large tree the tree is about 100 feet in height.

Object appeared stationary for about 2 seconds and moved to the south in a very smooth and controlled fashion. It passed behind a large palm tree for maybe a second. It stopped just the other side of that tree for again maybe a second. It then reversed course an moved back the way it came from. When it returned to the point of origin it stopped and slowly descended downward.

The weather was clear visibility was 10 miles the ceiling was 2045 feet wind was about 10 miles per hour blowing from the ESE direction. From what I observed, I suspect that what I saw was an RC or Helicopter or a quad copter, as am familiar with these and there are several vacation condo's and villa's in my area.

The object was below the standards for hobby type RC craft below 400 feet and not near any major Airports. The object appeared to land and made no noise no other aircraft around at that time. Nothing out of the ordinary occurred while it was observed.
