The future of drones

Oct 29, 2013 3 Comments by

In this great TED talk, Patrick Egan of Skyborg UAV Aerial Photography shares his thoughts about the positive potential of drones, from improving agriculture to cell tower inspections and more. He notes that although drones have gotten a lot of bad press, especially for their use in surveillance and in war zones, we should re-examine this technology and how it can improve our lives. Watch the video and let us know what you think!

    Have been using my drone to try and find a lost Glider from the air. Still ho luck but waiting for a calm day once the leaves come down.

    We used a drone and found a lost glider that no one else could find. Found it on the first flight tail sticking up out of a swamp with tall reed grass. The fun part was showing the video to the guy who lost it and trying to figure out getting it out of the swamp.

    Finally a common sense approach to the use of drones by the general public both personally and commercially.
