I'm very much over noise recreational drones as it is. There are periods where at home all we can hear outside are drones flying over the bush like a mass swarm of flying blowers in a quiet part of Sydney where ambient noise levels can be in the 30dBA range outdoors on calm days. Not to mention privacy issues where at times we have had them hovering with cameras pointing into our home 1m from the windows (ultimate burglary tool).

We're very concerned about the noise impact on us and others from what are basically selfish drone deliveries that aid other peoples laziness.
