    I believe that we all need to consider that there are many many reasons that folks out there demand “better” laws to protect their perceived rights as a hiker or outdoorsman, and reasons for others against creating legislation that prevents our use of state land (wilderness or other).

    Ulterior motives aside, I believe that we are at the beginning of a revolution on unmanned personal flight equipment.

    Two of the overshadowing issues that many folks are concerned about are first noise, then safety.

    Noise concerns are for the wildlife, and for the hiker looking to experience the “solitude” of the Adirondacks. Rather than locking out drone use altogether, manage them to prevent or minimize invasion of personal space. Set a limit of 100 yards from another hiker.

    Additionally, the noise issue is not permanent piece of drone hardware characteristics. The current models outbthere are only the most recent

    by There are currently personal spaces that would better address those concerns. no more a concern than airplanes that fly overhead transporting folks and or equipment.

    To me, a person should be allowed to fly a drone in any public airspace as long as he/she does not break any FAA rules and does not bother anyone, or negatively impact the environment. Respecting the privacy and liberty of others is of vital.

    A person smoking, walking their dog, camping, riding a bike, walking off the trail, etc will do more harm and have far greater negative impact than a photographer with a drone attempting to capture a wilderness scene.

    Drone users will defend their rights to use them for their personal enjoyment same as snowmobiles will with their sleds. If you don’t have one the noise and visual is considered intrusive when you are looking for unspoiled and quiet areas. Snowmobiles are not allowed everywhere indiscriminately,that’s why they have designated trails as drones should. Your personal freedom ends at your personal space.
