- that's really the question. I can see good uses of drones when it comes to disasters, crashes etc. but I can also see where they would go wrong. Hopefully the people that use them will figure out what's right and what's wrong.Dec 6, 2012
- I worry that people and volunteer organizations will stop rescuing people when someone is in distress, and just send a drone snap a photo to be bought by Rupert Murdoch's NY Post.Dec 6, 2012
- WOW.Dec 12, 2012
- The same goes for any form of photography. Tele-Zooms are around a while. They didn't stop rescuing people yet.Dec 13, 2012
- The last use of a Tele-Zoom lens I read about in the press was not entirely gallant. It was spoken about at length in the media after being used by a few entities for a purpose that was short-sighted and crass. They went out of their way to abuse someone who did not need their attention at all. Look how many people are attacked these days just to create a video clip with a phone cam that can be posted on YouTube. Clearly, that shows at least some of the time the devices deflect some people from what they should be doing; not that cameras are bad — just some people's judgment.Dec 13, 2012
- Here is an example of how the UAV Hobby is progressing....average people can fly these things and see what the craft is seeing in real time via FPV Googles: FPV - revo tuning session search Youtue for FPV and see what is going on in this field.
*edit* And this person claims to have sent their craft to 12,000 feet Z2 FPV to 12,000 feetDec 13, 2012
