    Default Pressure builds for civilian drone flights at home

    Industry officials said privacy concerns are overblown.
    "Today anybody— the paparazzi, anybody — can hire a helicopter or a (small plane) to circle around something that they're interested in and shoot away with high-powered cameras all they want," said Elwell, the aerospace industry spokesman. "I don't understand all the comments about the Big Brother thing."
    I know in these rough times people are prone to bringing out their tin foil hat for every little thing, but seriously... How can these people not understand the reaction that some people have to things like this?

    I can envision the FAA having a fit over these drones in our airspace. Imagine some untrained drone pilot from TMZ trying to shoot footage of some celebrity and then cause a mid-air collision with a manned aircraft.
