I would get yourself some medical help. Paranoia is dangerous.
A big sign in the garden with the words ‘Piss off Pervert’ would be a good start
Or a nude life size imitation of trump
just shoot it down ! simples
Err...lack of privacy is not paranoia. Most people like some privacy, some don’t, I do. End of.
If it’s Stuart’s drone it’s definitely looking at you bud
Was going to moon it but don’t think I will now!
I would flop it out and wave it around
Fook me...don’t encourage him
Depends on the size of it, any drones over a certain weight limit have mega restrictions and need to follow most of the same code as small aircraft, the rules state you can't fly directly over someone's property or come any less than 150ft, or fly in a built up area, if it's just a tiny toy one I'm not sure if they are liable, I use a phantom 4 Pro and it's becoming more and more difficult to find places that are not restricted in some way, but it's these people flying them irisponsably that's ruining it for everyone
Don’t think it’s a toy and so far he’s only spying high from his own property but not within range of aircraft. Certainly within 150 ft and residential area. Who do you report to? CAA or another governing body?
First thing you do is get out a colander and place it on your head.
You can try to shoot it down, then hopefully you'll get arrested for destruction of private property.
He's over his own land, so that's fine. If you're so concerned about him looking at you staring at him, maybe you should stop staring at him and go about your business.
Are you doing something illegal? Maybe you have a pot farm? Doing lines?
READ: who gives a fk.
You don't own the space/air above your house/land above a certain height (not particularly high IIRC)
There are rules regarding cameras on drones, but usually they all typically have fish-eye lenses so unless they're pretty close, quality ain't gonna be great !
IMO, sticking a camera on a long pole would give much better results and there's probably nothing to stop them doing that!
I really wouldn't worry too much unless they start being a nuisance, in which case best have a quiet word in their ear before going any further
If he is taking off
"within 50m of people or properties/objects that are not under your control"
Then he's breaking the rules, he can fly over things at 150m etc, but the rules make it very hard to take off with a drone legally unless you're in the middle of nowhere or own a house with a huge garden.
Says here you call the cops, I wonder if they'd find the time to come out
Going about my business is relaxing in the garden with a cool beer trying to listen to the birds chirping not the buzz of a drone overhead. And I don’t think that is illegal but what he’s doing maybe!
Yes he’s definitely within 50m of properties and also people like me in their gardens when taking off and landing. Thanks for the link. I’m sure the police would come out though if I shot it down!
