Did you guys have any experience with drones before you bought these things?
I had quite a bit experience from small copters and quadcopters, but nothing like this..... I just flew it.
Don't crash that puppy!
I got my boys two Husban drones for Christmas last year. They are a pain in the ass to navigate. I tried for about two days and just couldn't consistently keep them in the air. So I just threw them in the closet. They're only $50 a pop. By the way what song is playing in that video? I like it.
Yes I believe the 900mhz is used on the The song is called Mexico by the band Cake. The 1998 album is Prolonging the Magic, one of the great albums of all time IMO. Yeah, these more advanced drones pretty much fly themselves, using GPS and accelerometers to hold their position. If you let go of the controls they just stop in place and hover. All you are really doing when you "fly" it is tell it where to go.
Here I am taking the dogs for a "walk."
I'm holding out for one with a hellfire missile pod or two.
I'm trying to get some video together here to post. It was pretty amazing. I was cruising around my neighborhood at 250 feet, in very windy conditions, like it was nothing. Incredible technology.
If either of you get really good at it, there's a market for you in the real estate business.
My brother in law is a TV/movie producer. He says the pro drone operators make about 3 grand a day.
Never flown any kind of RC aircraft before I got my drone.
In all seriousness, I don't think there is a wavier from the daytime operations limit for non-commercial use. https://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/Advisory_Circular/AC_107-2.pdf
They are very common now. The contractor for my pool paid for a drone shoot after they finished construction.
Common, yes but until recently any Yahoo cold fly the drone and take pics, a la @Zambo and @oxrageous . The next thing in Real Estate, which extremely very few are even attempting it, is flying through a home to show a walkthrough. Obviously, a lot more skill and training with that.
What's the point of that when you can just walk through the house with a camera?
Better quality and better footage.
Here's another video. Same area, but I'm traveling farther and getting better footage.....even going over the turnpike.
That camera is pretty impressive. I see you can tilt it, but no zooming huh? Pretty soon you'll be buzzing cars on the highway or freakin out those kids on the basketball court
