Yes, civilians and corporations may own/fly drones just by following some common sense FAA guidelines/rules.
No, for the same reasons you can’t stop manned airplanes and helicopters. We are also flying within the Public, National Airspace. Only the Federal government is able to place prohibitions, restrictions, or regulations on the airspace.
We usually don’t get too close unless it’s unavoidable, for safety, a search and rescue mission, or another type of emergency. This may include, but is not limited to, evasive action to avoid birds or manned aircraft, to perform an emergency landing, or to comply with Law Enforcement, or FAA limits/restrictions/orders.
No, we’re not invading anyone’s privacy. We only fly our drones in full compliance with privacy laws and all other federal and state laws.
Our drones cannot identify persons from a distance. If you’re inside we definitely can’t see you. Even if you’re outside, you will look like an ant and won’t be identifiable.
We are very ethical, responsible, and respectful operators. Our drones will never be close enough to see through any windows.
Did you know that much more detailed 3D imagery is publicly available on Google Maps (enable Earth view) and Google Street View?
Please also see: Can your drones spy on people? (In short: No, it can’t spy on you or anyone!)
In short: not legally. Attempting to damage or destroy a drone is the same as attempting to damage or destroy manned aircraft. It is a felony and a federal criminal violation (18 USC 32).
You’re likely to be immediately arrested. If found guilty, you could be sentenced to jail for years or decades. Plus, you’ll definitely lose your right to own or possess guns. We can also sue for all damages and legal costs.
Sorry, no. Our insurance doesn’t allow anyone but our experienced pilots to operate our drones.
