Drones in Virginia Beach

 

My hometown of Virginia Beach… I’ve never seen the beach covered in snow and seeing this video makes me realize the intensity of the snow coverage and I just find it stunning and a great contrast of hot and cold.

another thing to think about is the privacy of the homes that they are flying close to. How would you feel if you saw a drone near your house, possibly recording you? Although the video is nice some thought should be put into when it is appropriate to film drone footage.

This guy puts up a great point about RC fliers and drone pilots. If this law is passed then RC fliers would have to follow the same rules as drone fliers which makes sense since the quadcopter is a more advanced version of a RC helicopter or something of that nature. I wasn’t syre what FPV meant also, so I am unable to comment on that.

Avengers + Drones

 

If you enjoyed the move, The Avengers, and you love drones, this video is for you! I think it was interesting how they were able to get such a large drone off the ground, and on top of that, try to land toy helicopters and planes on it. However something that struck me was that they were using the visor-like eye piece that allowed them to look at where their drone/plane was in 1st person. This is an example on maybe how to get drones to be more of a positive symbol unlike the stigma drones have with the military and such. This example shows how maybe we can one day have a free area where we can freely fly drones like we can go to a go-kart arena and play with go-karts.
