Fpv has been here for a long time. Why do you think this privacy thing just came out now?
It's the wrong intent that makes the real drone users look bad. My friend uses them to video shoot real estate for sale. And went through the right channels to get permission to hover in a residential area.
There are many fun things that we want to do. But it affects other people's feelings and that's why we don't do them. I would love to hover in people's backyard in fpv too but I don't do it because it invades people backyard. Not even privacy. Just the same as I don't sit on people's porch and have a smoke.
