Hi,

Having sorted your problem, perhaps you should now offer an olive branch ... invite your neighbour round for tea and bickies ... on the lawn.

I bet he would refuse. :lol:

About time too! But at less than £20 p.a. it is still far too cheap.

It's a shame really. A lot of people get enjoyment from quadcopters / drones. The registration cost wouldn't deter me from buying one, but I'd feel uneasy about being put on yet another database. It seems like the government wants to regulate and license everything nowadays. If they want to be consistent about this sort of thing maybe they should register all camera / smartphone owners as well. After all, they can also be used for nefarious purposes in the wrong hands (e.g. upskirting, poking through curtains into shop fitting rooms, recording private conversations, blackmail, sending hoax calls etc.). Where do you draw the line?

You might not mind your wife being photographed in the censored but I do! People like you SHOULD be on a database. Which ones are you on already?

EDIT: What, I can't say n-u-d-e now? What's wrong with this site?

Thank you for your concern for my wife Rosenberg. As far as databases are concerned, well I'm on the Electoral Register, the DVLA's database, my banks' and credit card company's databases, my employer's database, my ISP's database, BT's database, SSE's database ... and, come to think of it, I never cancelled my membership of the Tufty Club in 1972. What database(s) were you thinking of?

I disagree. If you had had years of a pervert neighbour spying on your family with one of these things you would think differently as well. Apart from surveyors etc. most of the people that use them are pervert voyeurs and for Thin and Crispy to suggest that they should be encouraged can only mean one thing.

Don't be silly. You know what I meant.

"ol' cobblers" indeed. Knee-length as well if my drone's video is anything to go by!

I don't know why you are all being so anti. I would have thought Daily Mail readers like you lot would be all for privacy in your own garden.

If you disagree with me, give me a legitimate use for a drone other than professional use of some kind. Amateurs use them mainly for spying / perving.

Thin and Crispy, you still have not answered my question.

Arborlad, I am still waiting for an answer to the question I asked you 5 years ago. But you clammed up didn't you. I wonder why that was.

I'd take a rough stab in the dark that we're simply anti deluded bell ends who seem to think it appropriate to cast wholly unwarranted aspersions on posters who offer their time to respond to your query.

It seems to me that the only one on this thread to get all hot and sweaty at the thought of perverts is you. Funny, that.

If it's the same type of question that the other half of your double act, 'nothingtodowithme' asks, then the chances of an adequate response is not only remote - it is non-existent!

"If you disagree with me, give me a legitimate use for a drone other than professional use of some kind."

I use mine for mapping my property over the seasons (recording plant growth, checking routes of paths, field drains), checking the tops of trees for evidence of rot/ash die-back etc, checking roof tiles and chimney pots (and doing the same for friends), group photos at parties, scenic photos at home and on holiday.

How many reasons do you want?
