Ignorant, angry citizen calls cops on legitimate survey drone pilot
Note: There is some censored language in the video, but I think a couple might have slipped through at the end!
What a whiny pathetic excuse of a man and the passive\aggressive was over the top.
Interesting. I imagine a number of roads ahead, (legally speaking) but one that's for sure, drones aren't going away. Long ago, this same battle was fought about airplanes. But, since drones fly lower, and record video, it's going to be re-fought.
Drones are too handy, cheap, (relatively speaking), and useful.
Anybody remember the line from the movie "they live", "mamma don't like tattle tales", and then blew it away? So, there will be privacy issues to litigate.
That is one of the daily events that surveyors in our industry have to deal with namely, uninformed people that have no sense of the extent of our right to be there and we are not trespassing or violating anyone's rights by being on public property and simply doing our job.
It is annoying, dangerous and any number of unexpected events can happen at any time.
Stay the course and keep learning because one day you will need to know and from your efforts and training you will be prepared.
The Surveyor handled the situation about as well as possible.
