A drone is something I increasingly feel uncomfortable about owning. What other device can you freely buy off the shelf and then through improper use endanger the lives of hundreds of people or disrupt the lives of thousands?
That’s the extreme version of events. But there’s a whole spectrum of trouble a drone can get you in. Flying it in prohibited areas (that the software doesn’t know about) accidentally will get you a bollocking or a fine.
And at the lower end of the scale, there’s the noise pollution. So many times I’ve been in a beautiful location and thought, I’d like to use my drone right now but don’t want to ruin the ambience for everyone else in earshot. So I don’t.
Oh and privacy. Sure that aerial shot of your house looks cool... but you’re also filming a whole bunch of your neighbor’s stuff that they might not want on film...
Not sure what the solution is. But these days my drone stays in the cupboard. I just feel creepy / uncomfortable using it.
