Re: Affordable but unsettling
Our privacy rules can't cope. Things people take for granted, like the presumption of privacy in one's back yard, no longer hold true when a telescopic lens hoving over public land can see everything. And anyone "innovating" doesn't want to be bound by rules.

Affordable but unsettling
The promise of affordable aerial shot for lower budget films is a point in it's favor. However does anyone else find the stalker capability of these things a little unsettling? Who's to say the one being followed wants the video footage? The FAA is coming up with rules on who get to fly these things. Is anyone coming up with privacy rules?

Tempting
Although that's still a near $2,000 purchase for all of the kit involved, it's starting to become possible for end users to get access to some of the really exciting drone technology out there. It's not something I'll have the money for tomorrow, but it's certainly something I'll be considering before long.
