    in other words, you don't actually care about the law. you care about your toys and doing what you want.

    i'm just posting to tell you, i don't care about the law either, f.a.a. blah blah blah.

    act like you are potty trained, you likely won't have a problem. act like a jackwagon, and the law might side with you or not. the law might be enforced, one way or another.

    i. don't. care.

    Being willing to face the consequences is the big thing. Laws, when broken, must be enforced, and if unjust must be challenged

    Yup. I think the law is wrong, will smash it on the f***ing ground, and fight the charges. Just FYI. And “Bronx Joe”? He’s a joke.

    Many drones are programed to return to the start or home location if they lose the signal. It might be possible to block their GPS reception also though.

    What you are not getting is the FAA ( A FEDERAL AGENCY ) has designated drones as "aircraft"
    Try
    smash it on the f***ing ground and see what federal prison time you get.

    FAA has no authority here, so no “federal time”. And in any case, national or provincial, bad laws need challenging. Try doing something positive for a change.

    You do get that whatever the laws the FAA has no authority right? No….probably not. See….I know this is hard…but try…this…ok…this is a different country.

    In SE Wisconsin a drone has the life expectancy of a snowball in hell. At least in areas outlying Milwaukee. The bumpstock boys around here, with MAGA hats. and enough paranoia to levitate a dead skunk,
    Anyway I plead the Fifth, and our new Bilgemate Fergus is my alibi.

    Seems to have taken a dislike to them. It's not too fussed about low flying Gyrocopters either.

    I am sure sooner rather then later these issues are going to land in front of judges and precedent will be created.

    The drone operator has to be able to prove the intentional destruction of his property, otherwise it's just another aerial accident, and you have to wait for the FAA investigation to conclude.
    Proving intent might be more difficult then you imagine, even with video. The airspace owner can put up whatever aerial obstacles he desires, including using his airspace for throwing rocks or shooting skeet (if allowed by other laws). The pilot is responsible for his aircrafts safety, not the other way around. Can you prove that I have even seen your drone at all before taking it down by whatever means? Or that it didn't simply malfunctioned and dropped from the sky? All physical evidence has to be recuperated and investigated by law enforcement otherwise it's irrelevant.
    Any video evidence likely to show intent exposes the operator to surveillance and violation of privacy accusations.

    Y'all just know there are 2 or 3 bored FAA dudes sitting at the local coffee shop just waiting for a call about a missing recreational drone to investigate.

    Yes you can! ………a slingshot, two ball sinkers connected bya short length of fishing line! May you stop them is an entirely different question!

    May I suggest a slingshot along these lines would suffice.

    I'm not sure where the conflict in this thread is coming from. I am not a big drone fan. I had one buzz my girlfriend and I recently when we were using the natural 'facilities' on a wooded islet. I was going to pitch a stick at it. However that would've been a little extreme for what was essentially an annoyance.
    They do get amazing footage but can be noisy and intrusive when some use them. Maybe the newer ones are quieter, I don't know.

    However the OP seems to be being very reasonable in both his posts and his usage of his drone. He is concerned with other's safety and privacy and uses it for his own pleasure to capture nature footage. He openly explains his usage and procedures and He follows the laws, as many do when doing potentially dangerous things.

    Why are people jumping all over him in a nasty way? Is it because the initial question of the post was somewhat provocative?

    If drones are the jetskis of the air. Jetskis are the leaf blowers of the sea. i do see drones as being the most potentially useful and interesting of these three machines. The negative aspects of leafblowers clearly outweigh any possible positive function.(who needs a dirty smelly super noisy gas powered ^%^&% rake/broom?) Jetskis are the ultimate irritating look at me yahoo device. Drones are new and a little weird but seem potentially very useful if used responsibly.

    Like anything, certainly the OP seems to be stating that is his intent. I see no reason to disbelieve him or heap excessive scorn upon him. I've seen some unbelievably cool sailing footage taken by drones. Neat vantage point.

    My post is in jest, and not having a go at Joe. As far as drones invading my personal space it annoys the crap out of me. I was on my mates yacht a hundred yards or so out from the pier when a drone flew up to 20 ft from the transom while we were enjoying a quiet linch. We waved at it to go away and the smart ass operator just shook the dam pest of a thing from side to side as if to gesture "no!" So i grabbed my fishing rod and was going to cast a line to hook it........he decided it was time to zip off. Similar has happened several times eg hovering around the house, going low enough as if to check things out, scoping out the beach stopping to check out the younger females sunbathing as it went along, .......yes I have a slingshot and ammo as described for the next time one visits the back yard. There are clear laws in Australia and all these examples are prohibited.

    Before anyone gloats over the rules or lack of... You must just want to look to FAA and CBO rule development.


    It's not impossible that there will be rules on maintenance records, pilot physicals, sobriety, rest breaks yada yada yada.

    I agree. Joe is being reasonable & careful about his drone usage. Others, not so much. Classic "there's always someone who'll wreck it for everyone else" scenario.

    a reasonable, careful--and i would add sensitive and courteous--drone operator doesn't need much protection of law. doesn't need the title of this troll thread.

    talk regarding "do you own the airspace over your head", etc, is moot, if you behave in a sociable manner. if, as you mentioned earlier garret, you have a need to hover over somebody's property or residence, ask permission. if you "need" to transit, go high and go quick. (i am skeptical of need, but there may be reasons.)

    in public spaces, respect the aesthetics of a situation. stay away from people enjoying the natural atmosphere of the great outdoors. like, well away. out of sight and earshot away would be great. even if you have the legal right to be closer.

    if you think these requests are excessive, that is a problem of etiquette. several of us posting on this thread have had very negative interactions with drones flown in ways that are likely legal. and even if illegal, what would we do in the moment to rescue our own peace of mind? call the cops? yeah right.

    the legality of a behavior is not a descriptor of what one ought to do, and law enforcement at any rate simply never takes the place of etiquette. where there is no consideration for others, letter of law be damned, life sucks.
