I'm not a person who likes to tell lies ...
but surely I like to joke with people in a positive way ...
about the drone many people are curious, many believe that they can spy on people without being seen ...

when I flew for non-commercial use and sometimes I still tell the curious ... "it's just a toy ..."

I have a fairly big bald spot on the top of my head ( and that is an understatement) .  My favorite explanation is  "It was a drone incident" ;)

I had my drone for about 3 months before I told my partner, every time I mentioned about a drone or wanting one she said that I was a drone. Anyway I put the drone on my backseat waiting for her to go to work and then I was of to the park. Half way to the park and the she rings asking if I’m missing anything and of course I say know, looking around I just say I’m busted. She couldn’t stop laughing , she knew all the time. But know I want to get a osmo pocket I may have to say that I won it in a competition.

Tell them that my drone is really below level, that it´s just a toy; or that it takes a long time to learn to fly a drone (I learnt with a small cheap drone without a manual in like a week). However, I usually don´t meet many people while flying.
The lie that was told to me was that when I was a kid, my parents (who had zero trust in any flying RC system) always said that drones and helicopters usually failed after a short time, that you could never be sure that it could work, and things like that. Of course, once I got a few drones I saw that usually they worked and very rarely didn´t

It was stupid, I must admit ... While I was practicing in a public park (empty at this particular day and time), a gentleman approached me asking to not to fly above his property nearby. I wasn't in a good mood and I responded that I'm not really interested in spying on his backyard barbeque activities.  I said, however, that kids playing in a park's sandbox were fueling my perverted imagination, and that's what I was using my drone camera for... I had a hard time trying to explain to a police officers that I was just joking ... Really, really stupid.

My lie: I wasn’t that close to the tree.
The Spark camera makes everything look close up due to the electronic stabilization zooming in to make up for the 2-axis gimbal.

The biggest lie I have heard is that ALL drone pilots eventually have a Fly-Away. When the Spark was still new so many people in the forums expected that since they flew it incorrectly and lost their drone that it would happen to everyone. And then again when the Mavic Air was new. I've purchased 4 DJI drones now (Phantom 3 Standard, Spark, Mavic Air, Mavic Pro Platinum) and I've never had a Fly-Away. Then when I talk to people that buy the cheap $20-$80 drones for their kids and they lose them the first day they expect that all drones behave that way. Sorry folks, if you fly them correctly and know your equipment you can control MOST situations and recover your DJI drone. *knocks on wood.

I suppose I lie every time I buy a new drone. I now have 7.

The only problem I see about my lie is this,  if I die and my wife sells my drones for the prices I told her I paid for them . ;+)

Lies, ya here's one
Flying drone out there with phone, the someone called in, the video transmission become crappy, answer it and said "I'm driving now, I'll call you back later." Got back into the app and everything goes back well, sweating with fear...

Remember to turn on do not disturb/flight mode while flying
