In the domestic drone debate, critics have argued that personal drones will usher in an era of rampant DIY surveillance, with cameras in the sky everywhere you turn. Proponents of that view have more ammunition this week, as an upstate New York man was arrested and faces felony charges for allegedly using a drone to film outside a medical exam room. David Beesmer, 49, flew a drone within 15 feet of a hospital window where patients were being examined, according to a police report. There, Beesmers drone — a DJI Phantom 2, according to his Facebook page — was reportedly seen by patients and staff at the hospital. He said the drone was unable to see through the tinted hospital windows.
