The knock at the door comes about 10 minutes after landing the DJI Mavic Air drone I’d been flying.
“The drone,” says the man, my next-door neighbour I have never met until now. “It scared my wife and made her drop the washing. You were flying it over our property too.”
I jump to the usual defence: “I’m a journalist. I’m flying it to review it!” I respond.
When I explain to him that I also wasn’t filming his wife, nor was I flying over his property, he seems OK. But it does make me question whether I was actually flying it to the spirit of the law.
