The beach has the word "private" in it so other people aren't supposed to see you, even if they have access to the beach too.

I know how she feels.   Every time I go out in my private car and drive around people look right at me.  What part of private don't they understand?  I can tell they see me because they flip me off when I make obscene gestures at them, so they must be looking at me!  Don't they know they are violating my right to be out in plain sight without being seen?

(Actually the safety and annoyance parts are pretty sensible things to have a problem with, but if you go outside in clothing designed to show off your ass, it doesn't make someone a pervert if they look at the ass you are putting on display.)

Soon as I perfect my Occulus Rift interface I'm going to make a gazillion dollars selling these solutions for the  drone intrusion issue:

Those are web-shooters under the wings, each casting a meter wide net made from a water soluble monofilament. Sure the nets could be 3 meters wide but where is the fun and challenge in that?

I see the difference as this:
A drone can be operated remotely without visual contact, usually a camera transmits back to the operator who also has heading, altitude, (maybe gps) etc. info displayed, and the drone can maintain straight and level on it's own. With R/C you need to have a visual on the plane (or whatever) to maintain control.


So what you're saying is that this:
img.fark.net

turns this:
img.fark.net

into this?
img.fark.net

That's a hell of a value for $280.

MelGoesOnTour: ManRay: I have a quad copter. It's not a drone. Drones are what the government uses to kill people at wedding parties in other countries.

I always wondered why the quad-copters are called "drones", too. It's an RC aircraft. If it's a drone, then all RC aircraft are drones. And, for that matter, RC cars and boats also would be called drones even though they are not able to travel vertically.  It's all marketing.

Municipal police are already stroking their smallish cocks in anticipation of this technology, and it will be a criminal offense to interfere with a police drone, even if it is on your property peering through your open blinds.

There's a difference between looking and making a video.  If you're incapable of understanding that difference, try remedial education.

Marcus Aurelius: Walker: This kind of thing is just gonna get worse as they get cheaper

And by "worse" you mean there will be more videos of scantily clad women on the internet.


There are enough women more than happy to be filmed clad scantily, or even completely unclad, that there is no need to go perving after women who don't care to be fodder for your kitten-slaying.  I have it on good authority that there are so many hours of video being uploaded per day you could spend the right of your life working out your forearm without ever once needing to look at a video that was taken of someone who didn't want to be filmed.  And yes, I'm sure there's somebody, somewhere, who's response to that was "challenge accepted."

The only "need" that would be addressed by these voyeur-drones would be the "need" to know the video came at the expense of someone who didn't consent to be in it.

So yes, the operator is a creep, and if laws aren't already in place to punish that kind of behavior, there certainly should be.

Since they were able to actually confront the operator, it implies that he too had permission to be on the private beach.  In fact, the range on those things is not that great - you more or less have to keep it within sight distance - so ... it's nothing he couldn't have seen if he was there in person himself, which he obviously was.

I dunno what the BFD is, other than it was obviously making a video recording.

If drones start to become a nuisance, especially at low altitudes, I'm going to invest in a competition slingshot or something similar that can't be considered a firearm, and then go out for some target practice.

Marcus Aurelius: A woman in Virginia Beach, Virginia has complained that a drone operated by a perverted voyeur was filming bathing suit-clad women at a private residential beach

She just assumes the drone operator was a pervert.  She must be a dirty girl.


If you are willing to wear bathing suit at a public beach, you should be OK with people watching you, or even taking photos. There is nothing illegal about it.

That guy wasn't a drone operator.  He was a guy with an RC copter.

This kind of thing is just gonna get worse as they get cheaper. Skies are gonna be filled with drones. Spying on you, hitting your plane when it is in lower altitudes for take offs/landings, hitting your house/car by accident, etc.
