I'm sure it is the tether length, which is probably limited by the weight, and maybe wind drag, of the tether cable since the aircraft has to lift it. These devices have very low payload capacities.
The portability is good but, other than that, I'm not sure what it can do that a regular drone can't. Were you thinking of anything specific?
The 26 ft maximum range seems incredibly limiting. This really is just a camera on a stick, albeit a long one.
 Same as above then - I take it that you regard all SC rulings as equally infallibly correct and not open to any discussion. Not sure what you were thinking then, when you had the temerity to criticize their thinking here...  And again, you are just hiding behind an SC ruling. Are you unable to think or argue for yourself at all on this issue? Repetition, however dogged, of the mantra that the argument is idiotic doesn't further your position at all. 
This is an article about a blog about another blog baselessly speculating about what the US Government might choose to do in the future. It has no purpose other than to attract page hits by playing on the widespread paranoia that developed after Snowden's disclosures.  
First, I disagree with your blanket assertion that the Bill of Rights is just about individual rights. Not so. It addresses both personal freedoms and guarantees of State, versus Federal, powers. The item under discussion fits well within both categories. That the SC agreed that it does affirm an individual right to bear arms does not make any discussion of that idiotic, any more than a discussion of gay marriage is idiotic on the basis that the same court just ruled on...
I agree that statement is not correct, but I think what he meant is that it is not primarily about an individual right to bear arms, but rather about enabling the existence and maintenance of a well-regulated militia. That does seem to me to be the clear intent of the second amendment wording, and is consistent with the context of its drafting and adoption. That argument does not seem in the least bit idiotic, was obviously the actual crux of his point, and (to me, at...
Well unfortunately he made an articulate and apparently well-reasoned case, to which you responded with nothing but anger and insult. Do you expect anyone to conclude other than that you have no rebuttal argument? Or do you simply not care?
What do apples have to do with this splendid exhibition of paranoia?
I know - you probably missed the subsequent discussion (above) of that subject.
