I recently acquired a P3P, but I'm afraid to actually go out and use it! This is not a question of flight proficiency, as I've been flying R/C vehicles for ages. I have no trouble with that. However, I'm scared of generating an "incident" simply by using my flying camera. I'm defining an incident here as any of the following: People approaching in a hostile attitude because I'm invading their privacy Authorities of any kind approaching and questioning I'm going to be in NH next month and I want to fly around landmarks, covered bridges, cute towns, beaches, etc. But as I said, I might be too chicken to actually go out and do this. I guess what I'm looking for are methods, checklists, or handouts that can be used to defuse an incident before it happens, or as it is starting. I have a few ideas: Prepare a friendly handout that explains the harmlessness of what I'm doing and just give it to the approaching person to read. Dress like an authority figure. People assume that your rights extend beyond the normal if you look like you should be doing what you are doing. It sounds silly, but wearing a hard hat, a safety vest, and a walkie talkie could act like an invisible shield. Do you do anything special to avoid incidents?
