Bag and cat long separated here.

I met someone recently who was working on commercial drones and it was fascinating to talk to him, He was working on drones that had valid commercial uses - I've got a bit of guttering that is only accessible by drone or several thousand pounds worth of scaffolding. But the military implications were quite scary in the sense that the technology was there to make cheap cruise missiles.

A friend of mine brought his drones up for a play on the local beech which is massive at the right tides and everything in it is off the shelf and open source and I dare say almost anyone whose been to half a dozen RaspberryPi jams would probably be capable of making something that will breach any and all regulations and the only way to stop this is to stop people being allowed any form of toys or education, We're half way there but I'd rather we could educate people not to do stupid things than just stop educating them.
