I think everyone is afraid that these things may be as good as possible users only wish they were. When the Air Force said they ruled the skys in the past, they only thought they did; or more correctly, if they did, they didn't rule the ground.

And I guess walls and a solid roof never gave you an expectation of privacy either???? Many of these craft can see through your walls in levels of detail you wouldnt believe. Should the government who is to protect us now be recording us through our house walls and in our most private moments?

It can and will happen and wont matter if its an accident or intentional, it will happen.. No the government must have clear limits of its power and ability to spy on the population.
There is a Supreme Court decision that says the use of infrared technology to "see" through the walls of one's home is a search and would normally require a warrant. They have accepted cert on a case where police conduct a "knock and talk" at the front door (perfectly lawful so far) but have a drug dog with them who alerts to the smell of marijuana from inside the house. Is this like the use of infrared to "see" inside the home or just a simple knock and talk? Interesting question for the court to answer.

I believe the same limitations will apply that already apply. Police departments have used helicopters and planes to inspect property for years. They use them regularly to look for marihuana fields. You have very little expectation of privacy from the air.

How long have we seen signs on highways that say "speed enforced by aircraft?"
