What's with all this ITG talk in here?  There are simpler solutions to this mess.

If anyone peeps in my windows with a spy drone, they're going to see a pasty white nerd doing such horrifying things with oatmeal, lube, animal crackers and a life sized cardboard cutout of George C. Scott that they'll never want to look in anyone's windows again.

If you're not doing anything wrong, then you have nothing to hide.

ZzeusS: We use a couple for property managers and realtors.

I would say if you are dumb enough to shoot one down, go ahead and punch your state into

I'm sure our attorney would love to make some extra bucks.

And if you're even dumber?  Check this one out too.

If it comes onto my private property I'll do as I damn well please to it, and if you decide to sue or press charges, that's a two way street.  Invasion of privacy, criminal trespass, disturbing the peace, harassment, etc.

However, as a geeky type, my solution to this is much more... eloquent.  I have a lot of RC gear.  I also have an unlocked RF band transceiver connected to a laptop.  I can scan, find and jam your control frequency.  (yes, even the hoppers)  Meanwhile, while you can't control it, your drone is going to have an accident with my drone, which just happens to be made entirely of aluminum and aimed directly at your floating photography platform.

The law hasn't been decided just yet, but it's entirely likely that trespass will be applied to the operator of the drone.  We'll see.

/I fly, drive, etc a lot of RC vehicles, including some drones.
//never ever on private property without permission
///you're a coont.

It should be relatively simple to create a small turret that will automatically cover a drone that gets too close in silly string.

By the time I knocked on their door to ask permission to retrieve it they'd discovered the drone and were holding it captive under a pot in the kitchen.

That's funny.
