This is a drone I could live with with in wilderness areas and hard to get to spots.
I can see a real upside in the use of these as rescuers would be better able to access an individual situation.

As for sitting in the woods and having someone with a camera drone buzzing the quiet......

It could be used to assess campsite availability and even permit enforcement for managed parks, though I think the buzzing would be pretty annoying.

If they have decent enough range the search and rescue possibilities are exciting. You could see a camper's car a day later than usual and immediately dispatch a drone to find them and ask them what's up.
