Right. That's the reason why charter operators strictly control the use of drones. They make noise, which really tees off the video guys. Still guys like me generally don't care, as long as they keep their toys out of the shot. Many of the more sophisticated video guys now use remote, directional microphones, which help suppress the sound of the cameras clicking away during the run-bys. My D4 camera was not popular with video guys. It shoots 10-11 fps and sounds like an automatic weapon with a silencer.

My RP stuff is here.

Link to my Flickr Albums. Lots of Steam Railroad stuff there from all over the US.
