Re: Filming yachts with a drone

For me it's safety. Thats why the AMA has rules, too bad most idiots can't follow rule 1
Skywalker X8 hand injury - DIY Drones
Pictures of injuries caused by RC Helicopters - Page 9 - HeliFreak

I invite any of you who wish to try this to come over to my house I'll fire up one of my electric planes and you can stick you face in the prop.
Now imagine that is a bystander while you are trying to find you way to the hospital to have you face sewn back on after a 12" diameter prop @ 12000rpm removed it.

Good pellet gun with a scope would silently take care of one anyway in one shot. Person who owns it would never know what happened unless they went swimming for it.......
They can get in my face if they like - good luck with that!

Different technology but nothing new. Most every weekend during the late 60's and early 70's there was someone off end of the Marina Del Rey breakwater taking telephoto shots of all the boats.

They'd lookup their numbers, get the address and mail them a few proofs trying for a sale. Pretty intrusive I guess, but I'm very happy to have one now so many years later, it's an awesome photo and the only one I have of my father sailing solo.

I'm glad you liked it! No, that's not me... I am closer to the old wooden pier!

Just like jet skis, drones are pretty cool. Their operators, on the other hand, are frequently selfish pieces of #$%^&.

Last weekend, I was on our foredeck at 8am in a mooring field, rewinding our jib furler. I hear this buzzing noise and find there is a drone hovering maybe 50 ft above our mast, just staring. I look around and there are a couple of dopes on a the foredeck of a nearby powerboat (figures) that are piloting the thing.

According to the rule quoted, their operation was purely in violation. However, personal space is a social concept that responsible people can easily get their head around. I can see you standing on the curb, I can't come up next to you and put my face a few inches from yours. You have to have one self-entitled attitude not to get it.

Yes, but the populous often cheers the protestor that is willing to be arrested to make their point.

Re: Filming yachts with a drone

I had no iron in the drone debate until last weekend. My $0.02...
First the video is awesome! Nice work.

Second, I had a drone buzz my boat last weekend while I was cranked over heeling taking a decent puff, and riding it out. Boat HAD to look pretty awesome. While I regained some flat, I looked up, and buzzing probably 50 feet or so above my mast was a drone. Of course I couldn't hear it (my own wake was louder). At first I was pretty creaped out... then I thought about it, and said, geesh I wonder if I can get a gander at that VID! So I waved at the drone, and off it went.

I think I'm of the opinion that we have NO reasonable expectation of privacy in a public spot, and we have even less than we had before. But I anticipate some great videos of my boat in the near future!
