I thought about using a drone on very remote BLM land to check the rough road conditions ahead and look for suitable campsites. Also can check just before dark if other critters have set up camp close to me, etc. I go to very remote locations for true peace and quiet and privacy off the grid when in the mood. However changed my mind when I learned all the drones were made in spying China so no longer interested. Like always go to higher ground and survey area with binoculars. Works for me.

If drones become too numerous and intrusive of our privacy many people will start wearing disguises with brim hats to thwart facial recognition software. Just musing
Guess where your cell phone was made?

Seriously tho, law abiding people need not fear this,criminals will have no place to hide,good thing imo

What matters is the end result such as elimination of poverty and improving economy in this case

I have a Phantom 4 Pro, never flown over a campground, but have spied on all my neighbors here in English Ranch - take a look!

I've heard great things about the Mavic, and Costco has those and the Mavic Mini, which also takes amazings video and stills.

For RVing, I think smaller would be better for storage and ease of setup. My setup takes some time so becomes a limiter - I don't fly it much.

The CSU Hughes Stadium was torn down since the university built its new stadium. So sad, here it is a couple months before it disappeared forever.

I haven't tried scouting out potential off grid campsites yet and wonder how feasible that would be.

I learned early on with my neighbors, letting them see the screen together with me as I fly alleviated all the 'spy' considerations they have. It just isn't possible [emoticon]

FWIW, I'm licensed by the FAA and the drone, of course, is registered. When you shoot it down, look for my business card in the battery compartment and give me a call [emoticon]

"Guess where your cell phone was made?"




I have a Finland owned nokia phone and according to Nokia their phones are made in many different countries besides China. I enjoy avoiding buying chinese ________ as much as possible as I am retired on full vet disability for many years now and have time to carefully shop. All my old electronic stuff works just fine for me and therefore no need to buy new overpriced ________. Thank you for this opportunity. Captain Happy.

I only care about good price

Got lucky to find Blackberry few years back for 120$ on Amazon.

Alegedly its made in Mexico bc BB company was concerned about China stealing BB OS code

Make no sense since chinese Huawei is also very secure system imposible to crack or hack.

I think Main reason our Gov doesnt want it here is the Goverment couldnt spy on us LOL
