Yesterday, we were all sitting in my brothers backyard having a BBQ. There was a drone flying over his neighbors house. I was told that the neighbors contractor uses the drone to take measurements for the new roof. A little crazy that people can see what you're doing in your own backyard.
This tells me there's gonna be a plethora of laws passed re: drones....if it hasn't already begun.

My Phantom 2 can go up to 400 ft, and horizontally, it can go up to 900 ft but If you beefed up the antenna, it can go up to mile and half but the only problem is that it will drain the battery faster.

Now talking about breaking up the communication, Phantom will either automatically fly back home if you set up home point or will fly toward you till it restore communication.
Military Drones can fly higher they say as high 50,000 feet

I don't think there's gonna be civilian drones equal to the military because of a lot of regulatory constraints........
Not to mention the cost to make and operate them. We're talking tens of thousands into the millions of dollars per system. Also, they're powered differently. Military drones use fuel cells.

I love the part where guys run for his life to catch his quadcopter before landing into the water. It's pretty clear that battery was running low and he did not mark "homing" point or GPS was disabled. LOL. This is the best part of all. Running for his life...eeeiiiiiyyyyyyy especially the part where he ran on those rocks!
