Ah, the simple pleasures….
Last weekend I went for a lovely walk in the warm sun on Bernal Hill, surrounded by gentle breezes, rustling grass, barking dogs, laughing children, and the whirring hum of a video drone capturing footage of the whole scene.
Not complaining, because the drone’s operator was being very careful considerate, and the fancy new tech somehow felt familiar and ancient — sort of like a mechanical hummingbird. Timeless and cutting edge, all at the same time.

Looks like a special effect from a kid’s scifi movie! “Bugzilla Destroys San Francisco”
Yes, that’s one of those new drones! That thing has a 4k camera on it, very cool. I think they weight like 6 pounds though. So far I haven’t heard of any accidents with them, hopefully they stay safe…
As cool as I think these RC aircraft can be, I’m not looking forward to having the sky filled with them.
Roger that Brandon – especially when they are plug and play store bought and the “kiddys” do not even learn any modeling skills as we might have growing up making model aircraft.
you may not necessarily need to build this, but you can learn to actually fly it! sounds more fun to me than a model
plug and play mentality with your credit card….duh
I think the technology is amazing but they are annoying. The noise is obnoxious. Find a field where othe people are not enjoying the sky, birds, etc. people are very inconsiderate to fly them at bernal. Can I hurl shit up in the air too? I will be super considerate while I do it!
