The Next Star Wars Movie Has Recruited a Team of Drones to Protect Its Secrets
Accessible drone technology is creating a bizarre future in the world of movie making. In 2014, pictures taken by drones of filming for The Force Awakens prompted the production team to consider buying an anti-drone “shield” to protect secrets. For Episode VIII, they’re deploying drones of their own to take down rebel scum.
Naw just kidding that's not the title. However, after people flew in drones to get info on the previous movie, for this shooting they’re deploying drones of their own to take down rebel scum. On top of the drones… six hundred guards being deployed on location to try and prevent the public from snapping any sneaky pictures.

And an idea was born to build a high altitude RC spy plane with some serious optics on board.
