PostSubject: Drone falls dangerously out of sky; Local news station reveals what it had been filming Fri Aug 16, 2013 10:54 pm

A small drone obtained by a local Florida news station is revealing just why some have privacy — and safety — concerns regarding the ever expanding use of such surveillance technology by both the government and hobbyists.

WKMG-TV, covering the Orlando area, reported one if its reporter finding a RC aerial vehicle that fell out of the sky after losing control and crashing into a tree. The news station was able to obtain more than two hours of footage that was taken by the attached GoPro camera, revealing what the drone had been observing before its fall.

Here’s what WKMG wrote of the footage:

   [...] you can see each flight starts innocently enough. But you can see the potential for bad behavior.
   In one shot, the drone races toward an apartment window, getting within feet of the glass.

   In another shot, the drone hovers over a female sunbather at a pool. She’s completely unaware that it’s there, and she never looks up.

   But the scariest shot of all shows the drone wobbling high over I-4 as cars zoom by down below. The drivers have no idea that the drone was out of control at that point, and only seconds away from crashing.
