Unmanned flying autonomics date back to the 1800’s during the Civil War era when the first drone-like vehicle was patented by Charles Perrey. He invented this device with full purpose for his defensive opposition in 1863 and it was used as a detonation timer for explosives. The Israelis then invented the very first drone of autonomy in the form of a propeller style aircraft for above ground target practice shortly after. As we all know today, technology has evolved into working more like the human brain and the American Federal Government has taken full advantage of drone usage. They now use drone photographers and RC aerial photography to keep a close eye on the Canadian and Mexican borders. They are saving more funds and covering more ground without having to use as many border patrol agents and using professional grade NYC aerials for their research. NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have also gotten aboard the sky view trend and are using drone photography as a way to track large storms and space activity. Larger drones are particularly useful and can carry complex tools used for a variety positive cause. For example, some can detect heat signatures to help fight fires and they can be used to monitor crops to ensure they are free of disease. Not to mention, more and more drone photography is being used for the architectural, real estate and contracting markets. However, there are some negative debates circulating online over the many types of drones that are being sold today. It has been said citizens may be abusing privacy laws with RC helicopters and drones that can be bought complete with video cameras for a cheap price at most any electronics retail store. People are now voicing their own personal privacy concerns as news media covers the domestic use and abuse of these so called ‘toy drones’ as top stories with statements being made related to this type of technology being a violation of the Fourth Amendment. For these reasons, The Aviation Administration of America has presented a few basic rules for the use of unmanned RC helicopters and drones for the hobbyist as well as for professional aerial photographers. For safety purposes one should never fly more than 400 feet above the ground, within five miles of airports, and never where possible property damage could arise.
