    Just saw an ad for the program ET tonight on NBC highlighting a story of using Phantoms for celeb photos. Did not look favorable. Be sure and tune in...

    Stupid massive over reaction as always.
    A Gopro on a Phantom,so she will appear about 1cm high and you will have no idea of who it is.
    Obviously people who come up with these stories have never seen footage from a Gopro,they see a flying aircraft and assume it can see right into their house!
    I have shown people in the field as it were the footage from my Gopro and they are more often than not totally underwhelmed.
    They expect to see everything in super close up as their assumption of the term "drone" assumes spying or weapons so it MUST have a massive zoom lense on it and be able to pick out close up details at distance.

    Near the end the 'expert' mentions them flying at 20,000 ft!
