Filming yachts with a drone

I had my first real go at filming some yachts under-sail this weekend... What do you think?

I hope you enjoy it just half as much as I did making it!

Careful ... I had a drone follow me not long ago. Had a go at it with a high powered pellet gun ... missed, dammit !

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.

Remember that in the US you need an FAA license to sell video from drones. Don't know about UK.

I've seen one downed by hostile fire once. Everyone present cheered.

Re: Filming yachts with a drone

I don't know about this... I get that it is fun for the "pilot", but I have to say that I do not like the idea of strangers filming into my cockpit when I sail. To me, it's an invasion of privacy.
What do others think?

At this point in time, any expectation of privacy you might have when in open space is totally gone. As long as the drone isn't peeking through the ports, I think we are all fair game.

Violate my air space and you will be shot down. It is a cool video but i am not into drones. I can see a few commercial uses for them as long as its not near me.

Maybe you should consider the bank cameras, traffic cams, and security cameras on many homes and businesses that took your picture practically from the moment you stepped out of your house until you got to the marina. Slight exaggeration but, are you going to shoot all those too? What is the difference?
