    This is a great example of why we are going to have problems . See how they worded it a DRONE used for spying then have a pic of a phantom so now when people see you with your quad your a spy a peeping Tom . Just like that butch looking troll beating on that poor kid at the Beach .
    **** media scum !

    Some French fan wanted to see his team before they get beat up on the pitch. Either that or an enterprising journo.

    Just another example of ignorant people making the assumption that a small flying camera could only be used for sinister purposes like spying. And journalists will always look for a dramatic angle.

    The idea that watching a team training from high up would produce valuable information is pretty far fetched.
