Drone detector alerts you to neighbourhood spies

Posted on June 23, 2014 at 11:28am 17 Comments

Privacy is going to be more difficult to protect than ever in the drone-filled age.

Competitors, thieves, or even just your neighbours could be spying on your every move using a remote-controlled flying camera.

That's the kind of paranoia Domestic Drone Countermeasures (DDC) is hoping to tap into with its new personal drone detection system…

Hello, Spanish regulations not this single current require you a civil liability insurance (not mandatory) the price is approximately€ 400, does not limit coverage and you enabled for the entire national territory. the only advice I give you is that you have in mind the airports. You can send the information you need about the Barcelona airports. If while you're in Spain you need some spare for Phantom will be at your disposal have the official concession for DJI.
I hope you enjoy passing through Spain and meet their objectives.
A cordial greeting.
Antonio Peña.

Hey Criro,

I sent you a message few weeks ago regarding the flight you did in Ste Anne (McGill Farm). How did you get there? I'm right next to it but never dare to ask or try flying over this area.

Hi, I did ask people from there.  I told them I am certified drone pilot, which is true, with CQFA. I told them I will have soon a COAS from Transport Canada which is in progress.

Doesn't work for me... I guess I will continue to fly elsewhere
