Default UAV movie of South Boston

A South Boston architect bought a drone in January, and cranked it up a few weeks ago to take video of SoBo. Pretty artful and shows the potential for these devices to give us new perspectives.

Ed, now come look at my roof for me, bro! I think we'll see the day when your track days will include "Drone's Eye View" along with your onboard video and GPS data.

The movie.

I think they are using drones in real estate now. Giving potential buyers virtual tours of inside and outside the property and Amazon is experimenting drone based deliveries. Its pretty cool IMO and the FAA just approved commercial use of drones.

No offense to either of you 2 but having drones on US soil piloted by civilians is the dumbest thing that I have ever heard. Not only because of the technological reasons but also because if some asshat buys a ton of them and straps explosives to them........ you get my picture. I can understand why it would be a good thing for some companies to use them, but the negatives far outweigh the benefits.

I agree not everyone should have access to them but there are already drones like the ones made by DJI that can carry a payload of a DSLR. There is no way to avoid misuse when you release stuff like that into the public. But then again there have been plenty lf radio controlled toys that have been on the market for years and I don't think it has been a huge problem.

Dumber than replying to a regional thread about an architect's video of a local city to rant about civilian use of tiny drones? Assuming that government regulation of toys is going to make anyone safer?

Coin flip.

Rc planes and helicopters arent exactly new.

Id be more worried about one hovering outside my window during me time.

Yeah, here I was thinking LEA tries to keep close tabs on high explosives, while m71owner thinks you can buy the stuff along with your flock of drone bombers. So ban toys! He would fit right in Cambridge.

While I understand that remote toy plans have been around for quite a while and nothing has happened with them there is still the possibility for these new drones. With toy planes you have to have line of sight to make sure that you don't run into anything. When you strap a camera to one of these new ones you can go just about anywhere you would like to. And im not just talking about bombs or explosives. There have been recorded video proof of people getting there hands on one of tiny little helos and strapping machine guns to it. To me that would be hell in a hand basket if someone got like 30 of those things in the right place and there would not be much for people to do about it. I get that it may be a little paranoid of me I think like that but in gods honest truth it should still be reconsidered and regulated.

Oh you mean the fake Russian one with the revolver? Or the one with the Airsoft gun? BTW, where does one get these "machine guns?"

Go post in your own region. Or go fire any mg you can get your hands on. Actually, do both.

Cambridge does not want.

Also, seriously!?! Just about anything can be used improperly to bring harm to others, I dont see the harm of allowing people the freedom to fly personal drones, of course as long as they are using them properly.
