Red Jacket Firearms I believe is trying to market this for law enforcement and possibly military.

Totally stupid as far as I'm concerned.

There is already a precedent for using technology like this. Police regularly use infrared imaging from helicopters to look for things they cannot see in visible light either due to darkness or something being concealed. The problem with this info is when authorities start using it to spy on people for no reason and crack down on anything they see. They may use a general blanket statement like "we need to protect the peace." It's fine for the specific example you used, but where you do draw the line when police decide they can use drones flying through your neighborhood every hour and see your house from every angle, and possibly even into your house? Keep in mind, programs could also be written for these so that they will not even be manned remotely. They could be programmed to fly a specific route every time, and then just have all the video dumped into a data center with a few cops monitoring the video of several drones.

Yes...once you get onto that slippery slope, it's hard to get off it.

just let me say, if anyone doesnt like how they might be used, I totally respect it. If you dont want them over your house, not an issue, Im just saying not an issue for me. I just look at the positive uses for them. They have opened the door for creativity in movies on a whole new level.

Ah, but I have a 30.06. Let's see a neighbor fly one of those over my house or in front of my windows. I'll be picking up bits of plastic off my lawn or mulching it with my lawn mower. :)

cameraman you might enjoy this article...ha

Great business start-up, but probably will die out in a few years. I like how it's really just an RC plane, but hyped up with buzz word 'drone'. Makes it much more badass.

Not what I was insinuating but yeah, that would work too. Looks like a fun sport. Saves on pigeon clays. :)

something funny to read.

Im waiting for the article on the pilot flying one around an airport in the flight path of a landing jet just to get "cool' images. i can see this happening soooo easily. mine can fly at 3000 feet. easily be miles from end of runway path.

Pilots? How about the general public? I could see that happening at ATL near the Cargo side of the airport. Just watch out for the jets. those will injest a hobbyist's drone like no ones business.

Last year I saw one flying over a busy intersection at the Dream Cruise. Pretty soon some hacker will figure out a way to crash them into a crowd. The fun will really start then!

could be written, drones are already being used in agricultural by simple farmers. its very simple with using iphones to control waypoints.

police have been using infared probably for 20 years. whats the difference between flying over my house and driving in front of my house? if a officer drove past my house 40 feet away every hour, hows that different than flying over 40 feet above every hour?

What do the laws say about airspace above one's property? I mean immediate airspace, say 50 feet above the ground. The police can drive by on a public street obviously, but is all airspace immediately above your property public or is some low level considered private? If there were a private element to it, the drone would be trespassing and could be dealt with as such.
