    They need to be "educated" on what the drone can and more importantly can NOT see at that range. People people people (shakes head).

    The same ones that complain and would shoot your drone down post their life history in detail on facebook., twitter, instagram.............

    Saw an article today where a guy took random people's photos on the subway and using consumer facial recognition software found 70 % of them on Social media.

    I get your drift but it comes down to the 'expectation of privacy' which is Zero in the examples you cited.

    It's important to remember that people don't know what , for example, the P3P can do, because they have probably never seen one up close or in operation before. All they know is that in the movies, drones can see into your bedroom from miles away. It may be ignorant, but if we blow those people off as ignorant, we lose the opportunity to change their minds.

    That article says that it's "against regulations to fly over property without permission".

    Really?

    sounds like a bunch of people who have nothing better to do than look out their window for drones.

    In the article, he stated that he made it clear he was taking their picture with no attempt to hide it. He said nobody seemed to care.

    I do see the no privacy on a subway thing but an obvious walk up, stand in front and take a picture would seem confrontational to a degree to many people..

    The rules they stated in the article are very inaccurate. And of course the comments were full of lemming replies.

    First thing people say to me is: What's the zoom range on that lens? (I tell them, uh, there isn't a zoom on the lens). They act like they don't believe it.
