An overview of the new CH drone law (postponed until 01.01.2021) by Digitec. Worth a read if you have a drone or plan to buy one.

As I posted in another thread, it's really hard to avoid seeing people if they happen to be in the drones line of sight..

Mine can fly for 5km, hundreds of meters high and thousands of meters away and with it's high res camera, it's very clear footage. I virtually always end up capturing somebody in the video when I'm just trying to capture the panorama etc.
Apart from that, modern drones are pretty sophisticated, it downloads a no-fly map at startup and won't take off if it's in a no-fly zone. Sure you can hack it but then you deserve all you get for that.

I think realistically it's what you do with the video that would land you in trouble.. 99% of mine just get deleted and the few minutes I keep don't invade privacy.

It's like take photos from a plane as you come into land.. That's invading privacy too..
