Didn't get my bearings till I saw Stockhill fire station, then the council houses opposite and Mill St etc. Nice to see Goose Fair from above.

Son bought his daughter one for Christmas they now fly at Woodthorpe Park and Burntstump Park.

 

They are getting cheaper and more sophisticated his even has a device to keep it at a set altitude, makes filming so much easier.

They decided to start slowly moneywise then if they prang it, it would be no great loss. However they have yet to damage it and are already talking about the next level.

 

I have thought about one for work, high level surveys etc, but I understand you have to be licenced to use one for work. It would be useful though, checking lead work, gutters etc and not even having to get the ladders of the van.

It seems to me that Drones confer priveleges and responsibilities just like many other products.

 

Some of the nature/wildlife stuff that has been enabled by Drones is quite stunning.  But then we've always been quite unashamed in the way we invade the privacy of our fellow planet dwellers and seem especially attracted to watching animal mating behaviour.  If it was humans it would be called 'porn'.

 

Long before drones were available, I was considering ways of using kites to take aerial photos. I wasn't the first and I just wanted to get above ground..

 

On balance, I'd say that drones, used responsibly, are a 'good thing'.

 

But if I ever see one hovering over my garden whilst I or my family are enjoying our privacy.. I will do my best to shoot it out of the sky.

 

Just because you can.. doesn't mean you have a right to....
