Does anyone know if there is a plan to handle the inevitable time when people off property send in the drones to get video to post online?

Oh please no Judy...not the drones!! Would we have thought about that during our first trip...92'? However, you are correct. Folks that have taken pictures, on foot, over these many years, will certainly be replaced by technology. Please tell me, they won't be able to drop water balloons on us....lol. I love your post, truly, truly the spirit of Hedo. You made my night!!

roy...t-minus 168 and a wake up!!!

The technology has come too late. The drone cameras might have worked in 1992, but now with most of us men with shiny bald heads, the photos will be blurred from the glare.

The only solution to drones, is a shotgun.
If you could jam the signal, most drones are programmed to return to point of departure. Even at that, video can be transmitted live to the controller. Signal jamming in most countries is illegal.
In 2013 we were on the cat cruise, and while I did not see it, others on board said we were buzzed by a drone.
It's a sign of the times, sadly.

If anyone wants a video of my fat hairy naked ass, they are welcome to it, with my sympathies.

I guess you could blind it with a laser - you can get Chinese Pen lasers that are so strong they can start a fire at 50 feet.
But I think they are restricted in the US, so you can't take them through customs (too much danger to aircraft).

Still, if someone on Hedo Staff had one he could act as designated drone swatter. smirk


All in all, I'd rather be a hippy.

Another thought. So close to the Negril Aerodrome could be extraordinarily dangerous. WOuldn't that restrict anything going into the air?

Well, it is not supposed to happen near airports in the US, but it does and has at all three of the international airports in my venue. Powerful lasers, too.

No need for such high-tech solutions. A simple signal mirror focused on the drone should blind the camera by overloading its photosensors.

Mirrors and lasers only work on TV. Remember the drones can move in any direction, trying to focus a laser from the ground to a specific spot on the drone would be difficult. In the US and Canada drone manufacturers are starting to program no fly areas into the drones. Applies to large airports (and the White House probably), but not sure about regional or really small airports (Negril Aerodrome). But nudist resorts like H2 wouldn't make that list, the only saviour, as was mentioned, is that it's close to an airport, but then it is Jamaica.
I think we will have to get used to seeing You Tube videos of Chicago Jakes hairy naked ass, LOL

OK then, just send up another drone. grin

When the pilot of the first drone sees his expensive toy threatened by a cheap Radio Shack (or whomever) knockoff, he will beat a retreat.

I like the idea of Attack Drones...;-) But jeez..get a day pass and explore the place in person! It's what we did and we loved it. Met more and talked to more people in those 6 hrs then we had in a few days at another resort.

Yeah, I heard someone lost an eye or something a few years back, while trying to launch balloons at the Sandles boat.
Jamaicans don't have a lot of money to spend on toys like drones. I suspect it's a short term worry / passing fad.
Hummm, maybe slingshots.....LOL.

Several people were injured when hit by water balloons launched from sling shots, including a person hit in the eye. Evidently hitting other guests was easier than hitting the Sandals boat. Sling shots were banned a few years ago.

Super Soaker loaded with salt water! Salt water is death on electronics, plus -- it spots up the camera lens.

Paintball guns! Lol.

Or we hire Tom Selleck, he was good at taking out robots in the classic 80's movie "Runaway".

I like the salt water guns the best! Or we could use french fries to train the pigeons to bring them down.

I posted a link to the drone video of the destruction of Lido (mentioned by Hedo11 above) in the "Will Hedo Be Pressured to Change" thread a while back if anyone has not seen it.

My first thought at seeing it was this very concern of drones hovering over the nude complex at Hedo. The future is upon us and I'm not always happy at the progress. smile

I tried to post a link to the video over on the Couples message board (Couple's board, not Denny's board) and they sent me a message back saying they do not post messages that "advertise another resort". I replied saying "Sorry, I did not realize a video of a demolished resort was advertising it" wink

It is getting very close. Here is a drone you can buy for under $725. It is kind of cool if you are into various physical activities. We can only hope that our fellow Hedo guests will leave theirs at home.

Perhaps the security guards could be issued shotguns to be used as AAA.

Just read a local paper on drones. The suggested counter attach was to spray the drone with one of those "WASP" sprays, that sprays a liquid several meters.

I wondered about that sort of non-explosive solution. Also, if it reaches far enough, what about shooting Silly String into the props? Maybe even a simple blast of water from a SuperSoaker might bring the thing down.

Saw my first drone at Hedo, was flying over the prude side near the bar, not sure how it managed to stay flying with the high winds this afternoon. Can't say whether a camera was attached or where it came from, maybe a guest had brought it in their luggage.
