I recently returned from nearly a month travelling/teaching in the US. This was my third time in as many months coming into contact with ‘drones’. While the one used to capture this footage was noisy and somewhat conspicuous, I am aware that even already on the civilian market there are far quieter and more discreet models, This for me is some of the most creepy and insidious technological development of late. The rampant development and use of surveillance technology (and the acceptance by the general populous thereof) seemingly is unstoppable just now… I do believe though this technology must be understood in order to realise it’s implications, so at a personal level more study is required… What’s your opinions on this type of stuff…?December 1, 2014 at 5:33 am #30932
Drones make a nice target.December 1, 2014 at 7:32 am #30934
Already nailed 2 myself. Articles out last week about FAA complaining how they are interfering with planes. They are very creepy.December 1, 2014 at 1:16 pm #30941

Creepy is the word that comes to mind. I have a hard time understanding why anyone should be allowed to spy on me on my own property. That which is not observable from a public roadway should have a presumption of privacy.December 1, 2014 at 5:55 pm #30954
Search and rescue communication drone? If someone walks off into the woods and gets turned around he could get completely lost. Nice bright colored hats I spy. Although having a drone around may take the sense of adventure out of the experience. To be called primitive shouldn’t all modern tech be banned, including the instructors. A map but no compass. No watch. No lighters. Flint and steel only. Spears and swords for protection.
A drone though filming me in a survival class though…. ya i’d freak. lol
