Not Exactly an HOA Story, But Worth Watching

I’ve long predicted that Homeowners Associations would soon be using drones to intrusively invade the privacy of homeowners. The mesmerizing video linked below was taken over Niagara Falls and it shows the incredible capabilities of the new drones and digital video.

As you watch this, keep in mind that these cameras and drones are now well within the budgets of all HOA board members and management companies. With the massive amount of abuse that happens in HOAs across America, you don’t have to work too hard to imagine how this technology could be used.

    Grasshopper 744m Test | Single Camera (Hexacopter)

    On Monday, October 7th, Grasshopper completed its highest leap to date, rising to 744m altitude. The view above is taken from a single camera hexacopter, getting closer to the stage than in any previous flight.

    Grasshopper is a 10-story Vertical Takeoff Vertical Landing (VTVL) vehicle designed to test the technologies needed to return a rocket back to Earth intact. While most rockets are designed to burn up on atmosphere reentry, SpaceX rockets are being designed not only to withstand reentry, but also to return to the launch pad for a vertical landing. The Grasshopper VTVL vehicle represents a critical step towards this goal.

    Grasshopper consists of a Falcon 9 rocket first stage tank, Merlin 1D engine, four steel and aluminum landing legs with hydraulic dampers, and a steel support structure.
