But don't worry folks, the NSA would never misuse all that phone and internet data they have on you.
 
2013-06-25 10:19:41 AM
oops, nevermind.  I thought this was a government drone, not a private drone.

I am assuming that they don't realize that you can buy these things on Amazon for under $100.  There are plenty of people flying them.

It's cute that people think they have any sort of privacy out doors.
 
2013-06-25 10:45:15 AM
and this is news why?  news director should be taken to the set and beaten to a pulp on live TV

Everyone, please panic.

Thank you.

and the news folks are so outrage about the drone videotaping the women sunbathing that they show the woman sunbathing
 
2013-06-25 10:47:23 AM
This is Orlando, you can throw a video camera up into the air and capture footage of a woman sunbathing.

I think we need to see the 2 hour video to make a real determination

so the toy helicopter I was thinking of getting my son for Christmas is now an evil spy tool of the devil?  Sweet!  I better get two.

Where can I purchase one of these "drones"?  Strictly for finding terrorists of course.

Woo!

Wait.  I can't fly a two rotor RC copter.  What makes me think I'd do better with this.

In low definition. If they were really that outraged, they would show the HD footage.
 
2013-06-25 10:49:54 AM
Gopro's have super wide angle lenses. Unless the drone was 20 feet from the sunbathing lady - you wouldn't see much.
 
2013-06-25 10:50:17 AM
Drones seem fun. I wanna make my own.


//obviously not the raining-death type of drone. Can I program one to follow me when I'm riding my bike? So I can get Tour de France type of footage while I cruise around my neighborhood.
 
2013-06-25 10:50:53 AM
I wouldn't really call that a drone...

Four rotors is more stable and forgiving.

Exactly, everyone outrage over stuff happening in public and can be shown on tv without even contacting anyone for permission.  Meanwhile some kid is really bummed about loosing his toy.

Why did the kid talk to the news? Now the cop have more than enough to investigate him if they want.

FTA: "His name is Guimy Alexis -- a student who built the drone, and many other."  Later: "But what happened to Jimmy and his drone was not part of the fun. "

The poor grammar in the first sentence aside, are there two people here?  Jimmy and Guimy?

Maybe 'Guimy' is snowflake-ese for 'Jimmy'.

FTFA: Young created Florida's video voyeurism law last year, which makes it illegal to secretly record someone for arousal, amusement, or abuse.

'I'm telling you officer, I wasn't recording those ladies in the shower for amusement or anything like that.  I was conduction research to see how many girls in the shower it would take to get an erection.'

Think it would work?
 
2013-06-25 11:06:30 AM
So, anything that is unmanned and flies, such as....remote airplanes, helicopters and gyrocopters (Which this is) is now considered a drone?
 
2013-06-25 11:07:32 AM
I love the flashing "DRONE" in scary red text on the footage, as well as the panicked "it comes within FEET OF AN APARTMENT WINDOW!" (as they zoom in when it stops).  Also, if it died above I-4, how did their reporter find it in a tree?

If I'm in my backyard and find one hovering over me, I'd hardly consider that "public" and thus I will proceed to engage with my own anti-aircraft measures.

skinink: Why did the kid talk to the news? Now the cop have more than enough to investigate him if they want.


Maybe because he doesn't have $1000 to replace his formerly lost equipment.

also FTA: "from a small, unmanned drone"  - Are there small, manned drones? Do these farking journalists even read their own writing anymore or is it just a contest to see who can click submit the fastest?

vpb: It's cute that people think they have any sort of privacy out doors.


You do in your yard, and with a decent fence. If it can't be seen from the street, or a public area, you DO have a reasonable right to privacy. This woman, however, was at the public pool at the apartment complex, and therefore nothing illegal was happening, and her privacy was not violated in any way.

THIS is the part that annoyed me more:

In one shot, the drone races toward an apartment window, getting within feet of the glass.

No, in one shot, the drone files by some apartments, and then someone on the news team zooms the farking camera shot, that drone didn't "race" to the window. They did the same thing with the sanbathing woman, also. Fark "Local 6", they get the sleazeball award for sure here.

You have no expectation of privacy outdoors.
You have a diminished expectation of privacy in your car.
You have an expectation of privacy in your home.

Just because it's legal to take picture of people unawares doesn't make it ok.  farking right her privacy was violated.  It's like taking upskirt videos at the mall.  You're a rotten, creepy fark who has no sense of decency.

It says right in the article you can fly the drones as long as its in your line of sight. Once you lose sight you're breaking the law. And that's an FAA law he would be breaking.
 
2013-06-25 11:23:27 AM
On the high-definition GoPro camera that was attached to the drone, you can see each flight starts innocently enough. But you can see the potential for bad behavior.

In one shot, the drone races toward an apartment window, getting within feet of the glass.

Upon viewing the footage, local resident George McFee said, "It could've been a terrorist piloting that drone. What if that apartment building collapsed? This is just like 9/11 all over again."

Fark In The Duck: Too bad someone can't post a picture of what a girl in a bikini looks like...


Um, that would have to go through NSA first, then CIA, FBI, SEC, IRS, NAACP and your local officials.

SlothB77: oops, nevermind.  I thought this was a government drone, not a private drone.


This is the thing... words words words... I could strap my go pro onto a 100 dollar model airplane and fly it around my mountain and it would technically be a "drone".... we've pissed our pants so much as a society that we're afraid of children's toys. God help our great nation if they ever saw the time I was 12 and managed to get remote triggered bottlerockets on a r/c airplane so my big brother and I could have "air battles" over the Chesapeake Bay.
 
2013-06-25 11:28:28 AM
Oh look, another FAIR and BALANCED article.

I especially like the way it is in NO WAY edited from the raw video. I know this because my raw video contains blinking texts reading "DRONE CAM" and red frame. Also the zoom feature I have on my "drone" which shows me flying within FEET of someones windows with auto highlight feature is a standard item. Oh and the wobbly flight, OH NOES!! Did you see that! The horror!!

But I mostly love the detail I get of the sunbather, yeah baby, that is spank bank material there! No way she had on head phones or was even sleeping.

Great investigative reporting there local news channel, one day CNN will be calling for your stories! You managed to track down this creepy drone pilot, the Iranians must have shared their anti-drone secrets with you! There was no way his name was on this thing, not that you'd admit it I'm sure.

MNguy: farking right her privacy was violated


No it wasn't, she was in a public place. It's why Google Street View cars can operate.

And no, it's nothing like taking upskirt pics at the mall. She went out in the bikini, and decided to lay in a public place in that bikini. With upskirt pics, you have to work to get around accepted barriers(Outer clothing) to get intimate shots of private areas. Apples and 427 engine blocks, my friend.

skinink: It says right in the article you can fly the drones as long as its in your line of sight. Once you lose sight you're breaking the law. And that's an FAA law he would be breaking.


It was also an equipment failure, as opposed to blatantly breaking the law. Still a violation, but this is 'get a fine' territory, that's about it.

Well, if I found out you and your brother were taking pictures of me and my family you best prepare yourself for a beat down.  I don't give a fark if you're having fun and battling in the air, but leave the cameras on the ground.

So as long as you are seriously recording them you're in the clear!

"DID YOU SNICKER WHEN REVIEWING THIS FOOTAGE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!"
