I own a Mavic 2 Pro and enjoy flying it! Key to ownership is being considerate and responsible and following laws. On top of that, I also consider that neighbors and strangers tend to have unreasonable fears about being spied and sometimes freak out when they see them so I fly mine away from people and where I think people would object.

The technology in drones is amazing and sometimes I can't believe all I can do with mine! It can be a fun hobby if you have places to fly and use it responsibly.

Quoted from DCRand:

I fly RC airplanes and really enjoy it, and 99 percent of the time fly at my RC flying club with proper runway and clearances from things like airports, trees, light poles, and other inconvenient obstacles. And do use some of the same soldering and troubleshooting skills as working on Pins.
But not a drone fan. Too many idiots flying them where they shouldn't, like 6' high down a residential street, or at the nice quiet lake where i like to fish in the summer. And first time one fly's over my back yard, will be getting that paint ball gun have been thinking about buying. Lots of mass, low velocity paint ball should be perfect for bringing down a drone.

Be prepared to get arrested then, Drones are considered aircraft and shooting one down will get you thrown in jail.

I've seen idiots flying RC planes crash them into things more than I've seen drones crash also. But hey, the hobby you enjoy is all good guys, other hobbies, idiots. LMAO.

Quoted from DCRand:

I appreciate your thoughts, but never seen RC airplanes in the kind of places have seen drones. And my back yard is my airspace, so bring a drone low, especially with a camera, over my back yard, Ill take the chance.

Hey, go for it, sure sounds bad ass talking about it. It's only a criminal record, right?
