Wink Drones in Hawaii

Anyone into UAVs? Not the military missile-firing variety, but the increasingly affordable hobby type, from the Parrot AR Drone to the DJI Phantom. Photographers and videographers have captured some spectacular shots from the air.

But our legislature is looking at several bills aimed at UAVs, most of them focused on privacy protections and a recent one aimed at law enforcement use.

Now that these flying "toys" are within reach of the average citizen, will they become so popular as to become a problem? Or like most tech, is the media-fed specter of abuse far more dangerous than the reality?
