Most of the latest drones have an automatic return to base function which automatically triggers if it loses signal.

So we will have a signal interference device to enable the "return to sender" mode?

I saw an interesting tech programme on BBC News Channel (Click) today that was all about drones and had an article on the eagles being trained to grab offending drones out of the sky.  Amazing.
The other things that struck me were a) the huge proliferation of the things for commercial and hobby uses and b) the vast number of things being developed to knock drones out of the sky.  Apparently they are already becoming a nuisance to aviation and invading privacy enough times for several types of commercial deterrents to be in active development or production.
Progress, eh?

Most people appreciate their privacy for various reasons, even the US Constitution has provisions coming out of the revolution. Privacy issues are rocking the government and internet today, thanks to our dear Mr. Snowden. We voted out CCV traffic cameras in the last election hands down. These nuisances will have to fight uphill all the way, once a few violations become known. This is one thing that protects us naturists.

'Nuisance' to aviation? With a number of close encounters already, I can't imagine that a UAV sucked into an engine would only be a nuisance........ 

I do wonder whether I have already turned up on someone's video trap, a more unusual wild animal caught in their collection! Problem is when someone decides to sell these to TV companies, or worse still if they take to the police suggesting there is some crime occurring and the latter decide they should investigate, when they have no doubt better things to do. Not that I have heard of either of these happening yet as a result of an unmanned trap.

Most likely is for such footage to appear on You Tube, in which case the chances of it being seen are remote given the gazillions of clips uploaded every day. Though there have been a few cases of late - some talked about here - of pictures being channelled to the local paper who then make something of it.

I would say the biggest fear in being caught on camera is that of being recognized. Many of us (as a collective group and not just members here) stand to lose both socially and professionally. There have been a number of educators on other forums that have expressed concerns that if what they do in private were exposed it would ruin their carriers.

As for You Tube it is a point well made Peter with all the clips uploaded who would ever see it. Our local papers anymore are nothing more than a copy of newsfeeds from the AP with little local reporting. It takes months to get wedding pictures published. And local law enforcement could care less about an image of a nude person in the wild unless there were something more sinister attached.

Good perspective about Youtube.

Educators are vulnerable, if the kids get a hold of nude pics and distribute them. There is a possible loss of respect, or control. You can't always stand up for yourself, your rights, the practical harmlessness of nudity without appearing an advocate teaching something unauthorized. If that public overreaching, defensive of children minority pops up in arms, there could be morals accusations. Sometimes they won't just let it go to the thought of just someone without clothes enjoying that. It has to do with the "But what about the children" hysteria.

The flip-side would be Dennis Craig Smith, who told me that he taught 5th grade for 25 years, was an open naturist and wrote the book, "Growing Up Without Shame."

I fail to see how it would effect other professions such as medical professionals. Many have morals clauses in their contracts to protect the company from embarrassment, but when would it be important enough to be of concern? In this day and age of mass media, simple nudism is known as harmless and common place. Has anyone heard or read of any such persecution of a medical professional? I for one haven't. Engineers, I believe, are immune.

The local newspaper reporter who was jerking himself on the hood of his car in the Wallymart parking lot late at night in front of the cameras, that was something else. He was written about in his own paper, fired and lacked credibility anymore. Lost his job, his prescriptions for his schizophrenia was interrupted with his lost insurance, he lost it, poor functioning for months, life became a mess.

The only case of an educator losing their job that I am aware of was hounded out of their job by neighbours who objected to naked sunbathing in their reasonably private garden.
The police and school authorities were totally dismissive of the complaint, supporting the teacher who had always been perfectly open about their naturism.
I understand that they continued to hound the teaches after they took early retirement and that they now face prosecution for harassment.

Judge, jury and executioners? We have had a few misguided church groups that have tried to force their moral values by public shaming. Karma has a way of sorting it out however. Stories have circulated through the gossip grapevine but never seen anything where the hypocrites were exposed.

Morality clauses are another thing. Much like nudity laws often they are enforced at the whim of the of the person in charge. I am surprised at the school authorities supporting the teacher JohnGw, it seems any improprieties here would be cause for dismissal. Our school boards don't like to deal with those types of things. Easier to invoke the morality clause and terminate their employment.

The climate is generally I think less moralistic in this country, and freedom of expression is probably better catered for. Moralistic rules enforced on teachers which applied out of school and in private situations would breach protections on freedom of expression and the right to a private life.

While teachers and others dealing with children may need to tread carefully, I do not see how a school could legally enforce rules which discriminated against private naturists. Perhaps a different matter if they took part in a local naked protest and were seen to 'bring the school into disrepute'. I suspect the bigger concern would be if pupils got hold of naked photos.

I've been seeing ever more TV programmes where aerial and tracking shots from above but low altitude can only have been done from a drone.  As such the drone cameras are making a very desirable contribution to TV!

I went back to my latest hangout yesterday with the idea of putting the kayak in the water to follow up on some tips from a couple I had met the other day. Not noticed before was a sign at the pay station that said "park under video surveillance"!  There has been mention before of the nudity being prohibited signs but the first I'd noticed these ones. To continue the story as soon as I paddled from shore there was a buzzing sound and a drone overhead. There is a rental place near there so the journey began with about twenty other kayakers, canoeists and paddleboarders. Soon the crowd thinned out to four of us as we reached an area of open water. Before too long the others turned back and the journey continued to the place I was told about. When I arrived there were what I thought were naked people on the beach but on closer inspection found they had very skimpy costumes. And suprisingly, the couple who had given me directions also were present. With there being more people there than usual they told me it would attract the attention of the rangers so this was the minimum one could wear without getting a citation. With my tan through speedo did I feel overdressed! Still unable to find a nude beach here but was told that the local group has moved their efforts from Fort DeSoto to an area near Clearwater and Dunedin and some off shore islands. Only a few weeks left and time is moving fast.

But on the bright side; some of the islands have allowed me some time to be off the beach and walk around nude for a time. Not like a hike of course and I really would like to get in the water too! There is another place however it is a sandbar only usable at low tide and a little too far out into the bay for me to paddle there comfortably. I have been told a number of boats will anchor there and everyone is nude. Patrols only stop if they detect any illegal activity but leave the nude people alone.

If they looked nude from a distance, that would attract park rangers, as you say. If nude, you coverup. The rangers can be seen from a distance and obviously they can't see discernible distinct nude activity from there. It would seem that nude and a lookout would suffice. Were you just politely conforming to the overly cautious peers, or do I gather this incorrectly?

As you said Jbee, nude from a distance but I don't have binoculars and my eyesight isn't what it used to be. Yes, there is a bit of caution among those there. I have been told that they use undercover cops, patrols from the water and send out the ranger on the AITV.  Although they usually say just cover up there was an aura of don't make waves. I did politely conform as I am returning home in a few weeks. This is their terrytory.

We has storms go through this morning so the water was too choppy to venture out. So, sun and fun on the beach as there were rip tide warnings.
