I think that I would invite a couple of the neighbors over and explain to them what can and cannot be done with your equipment and how expensive it is for night vision equipment. You need to build some trust among the other neighbors. Some of this guys complaints are not far from normal FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt).

I don't know if you are flying over anyone else's property, but you need to explain what you are doing and what the law is or what the FAA rules require. I would have the information printed and available.

Thanks. I am preparing a letter to all those near me and explaining I only fly over my 20 acers, taking pictures of sunsets (need to get above the tree line) and of distant lakes. As you suggested I will explain that night photography is not useful for "spying".

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Sounds reasonable, but don't lock yourself into only flying above your property. There may be a time when you will want to fly further yet within the FAA's requirements. Give yourself a bit of a loop hole in whatever you write. 400' above the property is not spying.

We know these things, it is a bit of you passing this on to your neighbors and getting that warm fuzzy feeling. Sharing some video to show them what you are able to do. They may even want to seek your help at times.

The guy with the signs will not change, but he will not be able to rile your good neighbors.

In my letter to the neighbors, I will give them a link to my email address and ask if they have any suggestions, questions or concerns. I will also give them a link to my YouTube videos for examples.

God suggestion, thanks.
