    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?

    The drones are very good tools for making videos of Real Estate tracts.
    The lil quad copters equipped with a cam can spotlight a nice
    location like nothing else.

    "I'm not real sure what the solution is, but it probably has to be looked at because of the 'bad' people that can make it bad," said Hobbietat co-owner Paula Farm.

    The drones are a very sophisticated system.
    Their operating systems may vary but usually a good shotgun blast from an over and under will cause problems for the pest.

    Surveillance technology will only grow and improve.

    Either get used to it, and be 'good,' or suffer the consequences.
    The USA needs millions of "good little soldiers" who don't ask embarrassing questions.

    All hail Obummer!

    Side-bys and pumps work as well. If you have a good eye, autoloaders are unnecessary.
