    Allowing drones is dangerous. This technology can be used as weapons in high security areas. It is best to disallow this immediately.

    Since MEDIA became more competitive, they did not know what they should report, I saw this news from a private channel, bloody hell...These are toys of big boys, let them enjoy!!!

    There are countries in which they must abide by the rules,but rules are rules.

    When the world accepts these, we are still way back with the use of technology. These technolgy is used during emergency suituations. Also used to Capture Great Images. I must say that the government shud introduce laws to protect use but within limits of privacy.

    Is somebody checking how Sri Lankan laws and agencies will react?

    willowsd Sunday, 29 March 2015 10:35 AM

    Will the Chinese authority ever allow anyone to fly a drone in Beijing or any where in China for that matter, idiots?

    Food for thought when some are so adamant that there is nothing wrong in giving 20 hectares on free hold basis to the Chinese.

    HELL OF A JOKE, NO ONE IS AWARE HOW THOSE THINGS BROUGHT THROUGH THE AIRPORT.

    Ajantha Sunday, 29 March 2015 09:08 PM

    True. but we have to think about the national security and privacy on people as well. there should be a some sort of regulations on usage of technology as well. Other countries do have them.

    Fair N Square Sunday, 29 March 2015 12:13 PM

    probably trying to get images of teh high security zone by Proxies of teh chinese gove, TO BE USED AT A LATER DATE.... IF Sri-Lankans were caught doing in in China, what would the case be?

    banda Sunday, 29 March 2015 12:50 PM

    There are powerful cameras with telephoto lenses that could take pictures of most places from high rise buildings. Are we to ban access to high rise buildings and cameras?

    Veda-mama Sunday, 29 March 2015 01:01 PM

    Did the Chinese fly the Quad Copter across the seas?

    Kuthbuddin Sunday, 29 March 2015 01:54 PM

    These technology should be allowed to operate as their is no danger involved in parks so people are happy ?? mentally.it entertains even kids and devolops their minds.Srilanka is a small country with high in humidity .

    Gamey Kolla Sunday, 29 March 2015 01:59 PM

    Forget flying drone in china. Try landing at any smaller air ports in China with a Sri Lankan passport. The air port authority will be in total panic how did this black skin alien landed here. They are so suspicious I bet they even dont know where is Sri Lanka. All they know is black skin is a threat to their country. Racist.

    Kingsley Wijesinhe Monday, 30 March 2015 11:05 AM

    There is no ban on importing drones, as far as I know.

    Piyal Sunday, 29 March 2015 11:58 PM

    Well hat the fuss about these flying toys. Yes the ignorant Chinese would have been playing with these. Any idiot who wants to get pictures of any part of the country could get them from google through any PC or a smart phone. The Chinese were fools to play with this type of toys. Sri Lankans are greater fools to act in this manner. The SILLY statement that come proves that SIHALAYA MODAYA KAUNKANNA YODAYA.

    Mevan well said Wht you say is correct, you think you can do anything freely in China? Will the authorities keep quiet?? No way
