I think the camera is the issue.

What about flying a drone without a camera?

What harm could that possibly do?

Can still, say, blind someone that it crashes onto, moreso in built up area. 

Any gun is always assumed to be loaded, so anyone under a drone could therefore assume any drone is loaded with a camera. ... 

Besides who'd want a drone if it didn't have a cam in the package?  There would be no point!

Flying a drone on the beach whilst vaping must carry a life sentence 🤔

Yes but you must be sprinkling hands full of someone's cigarette butts as well for maximum sentence. 

Drones can be a damned nuisance and can appeal to annoying or nosy people

I fly a drone, registered it with the template for CAA, they send several E-Mails to me which I answered, but never get any license in return from them. I believe my drone is registered and all is ok with it. If you never send anything to CAA you might get a fine. And this is what everybody knows who bought a drone from DJI Thailand.

I've seen drone racing through obstacle courses with no cameras. Regardless of opinion, would someone just flying a drone without a camera be causing any harm? What would be wrong with flying a drone in an open field?

I was at Pier 39 in San Francisco in August and some clown was flying a drone above the crowds walking around. Security ran him down and shut him down no drones in that area. They allowed him to pack it up and leave

Ok so anyone breaking a law must be doing something wrong, is that it?

May I remind you it was once legal to own slaves and exterminate Jews. 

Just because something is "a law" doesn't mean it's right.

Aint that the truth!!!

I wonder if IconSiam registered the 1,500 drones used in their opening ceremony!

AHA! Interactive policing! Today's version of what the Hull drug squad used to do back in the 70s - send someone into the busiest student pub in town and yell "look out there's gonna be a raid!" then nab everyone who ran for the toilets.

Absolutely, no licence to fly a drone so that's what he does then brags about it in social media.. 

lesson learnt.

Exactly! It took him several times before he figured it out. But the CAA had prosecuted him in several police jurisdictions. Glad I didn’t buy one....

"never got any license in return from them"

 

"I believe my drone is legally registered"

 

You believe wrong...

We call them and they said the drone is registered. They just not send paper copies out anymore.

They will send an E-mail with the registration.
