None of this bickering really matters unless some moron buzzes your house with a quadcopter to take some video of your nude sunbathing daughter out by the pool. none of the Internet gunslingers are going to hit a drone at 300 feet in flight and none of the Internet lawyers are gonna sue someone over a flyover. Let's all just agree to get along and enjoy the stunning videos.

Since theft in the countryside had increased dramatically, especially of cattle, and the theives often use drones to find them, one of the members of Oklahoma's legistlature is seriously studying a law that makes it legal to shoot down a drone on your property. He also considers it a violation of privacy when someone is randomly flying one over the neighbors land. It will be interesting to see what happens if he does submit it.

Given that its a great tool to find things like scattered cattle, or teenage girls getting a tan without lines, I don't see why there are not rules about when and where its okay to play with your drone. If it shows you were the cows are so you can steal them, or you get some good shots of young bodies without their permission, aren't you violating the rights of those involved under the pathway of your drone and why shouldn't you be called on it?

And its true that the only ones you'll shoot out of the sky are the nosey neighbor/oportunistic thief type, but it would establish that drones are not kitty toys to be played with without respecting the people under them.

The last couple weeks there has been a lot of chatter on the news about drones. It seems that the FAA has finally detailed a set of rules/laws/guidelines and drones. I don't know the exact details so don't hold me to them, but the one that caught my attention was with the 500 ft and above rule for airspace, they mentioned that drones would be limited to 400 ft and below. They mentioned airspace over private property was going to have limits set to assure privacy of the land owner and that they thought it would be set at 300 ft. So public land or land you had permission to fly over, you could fly at 0-400, and over private property you could fly at 300-400 ft. But, it didn't show anything in print, just the reporters discussing it with people in the newsroom.

Well, you can't shoot something like that if not on your property. Would you shoot a neighbor's remote lil electric car? No.
