What is worse:
1. A camp fire sending smoke into your camp site?
2. A group of campers talking loudly at a nearby camp site?
3. A Diesel idling for half an hour for no apparent reason?
4. RV's lit up at night?
5. A camper running his generator?
6. A camper parked too close?
7. A drone flying overhead?

I have read posts of complaints about all of these perceived RV nuisances at one time or another. Yet there are those here ready to grab a gun and shoot down a drone. Obviously there are many things that cause some of us discomfort while camping but to grab a gun to settle the drone issue? Gonna shoot at that nearby genny?

Here`s one [moderator edit] "stay away from my daughter in her bathing suit" "not on my watch" "fly that over my property and it`s toast boy" really, this is why these people are angery now they have no control over their life and will lash out at anything.

The occasional drone you see today will be trivial compared to what you will see 5years from now. Enjoy it while you can. The recreational drones will pretty much be eliminated by then but the commercial ones will be ubiquitous. And yes, you will be in their peripheral vision, but not to worry, your data will be safe (sarcasm...)

The sub 250 gram drones may still be around but they are pretty much for sport flying and not video photography.

Threads like this really give insight into our culture, very interesting!

How much hostility will there be when drones drop your boxes on your front porch at an appropriate time, and don't just lay there prone for thieves all day?

New and rare things make people crazy. Ubiquitous things are background noise.
I can't see the rationale for drone delivery. The Amazon trucks that bring my stuff can be just down the street in my tract, and have 5 more deliveries before me. But a drone carrying one package? What's the point, unless it's delivering a new volleyball to Tom Hanks on a deserted island?

Plus folks are already annoyed with the very limited drones flown for fun in residential neighborhoods. Have to imagine this would drive them nuts!

You could do the same thing with a mirror on the end of a stick!

I have a Remote Pilot Certificate but I don't have much use for them.
Actually that is not correct for recreational flying. Here is the link to the new rules for recreational flying.

Before you invest a bunch of $$ in a drone, be aware where this is headed legally by the FAA. Most/all current drones will be rendered obsolete because of the requirement to have electronic ID just as all planes are currently required. A few bad actors have ruined it for the majority.

The article states that the FAA estimates about 93% already meet that requirement.

it said 93% of drones registered under part 107, those are commercial drones and the good guys, there are millions of drones that operate outside of part 107

As others mentioned 93% is part 107 (making money flying) think police, fire, government, marketing, Google, Amazon, etc.

I have seen no information on if my 3 year old DJI drone will comply or how much it will cost. Nor on how to deal with my custom built planes and gliders.

The Academy of Model Aerionautics (AMA) has more information for hobbyists - https://www.modelaircraft.org/about-ama/advocacy

Here is reference to the rules for Model Aircraft - http://amablog.modelaircraft.org/ama...l-Aircraft.pdf
