I'm posting this here in this forum for a reason. I'm quite sure we've all heard the response to a drone is to "'chut um wit muh smokepole." That is not in question here. What I want is an intelligent disscussion about how to deal with drones. Of course, calling them drones is actually a minor faux paux, some refer to them as remote controlled craft. Clip, magazine, whatever. ‘Citizen Drone Warfare’: Hobbyist explores a frightening scenario - Washington Times Once a technology is invented, you cannot uninvent it. I'm not whining about the civilian use of drones (RCC) possibly being armed (possibly, yeah right), and I'm not trying to discuss anything about the military Predator aircraft. I'm concentrating on that which I can actually do something about. DIY Drones Here's a site that was under my personal radar until today. These guys have quite a bit of stuff going on. Autonomous drones flying by GPS for a 250 mile round robin. Gyro stabilized HD cameras. This is quite a step forward from the line of site systems I used to know about. When I quit flying model airplanes to learn to fly the real ones, frequency hopping radios were just starting to come about. We used to use frequency flags on our radios to eliminate confusion. We all know that the FAR's constitute that NO aircraft can fly within 500 feet of any person, building, or vessel unless it is to keep an emergency from happening. These aircraft are subject to those rules, so when Jim-BOB 'chuts-don one of these critters, is he legally able to do so? The hunters over in West Chester PA thought so. I applaud them, and jeer at the douchebag that was whining about them destroying his private property. He was in the wrong, but that doesn't mean much anymore. So, lets get our heads together and see if we can figure out some ways to thwart the people that want to pester us and our persuit of life, liberty, and happiness.
