Getting on topic I used to have a drone or two but I always crashed them lol. This was when I was around 8 so I had NO experience at all with them

I once had a drone. Because I wanted to get shots from high altitude (drone wise) I made my drone go to its limit, it fell down a few hundreds meters, it didn’t get to fly again 😅

Once had a drone, not a very expensive one. Didn’t have it for long, as I found out the hard way some drones aren’t meant to swim when the battery runs out

I’ve always wanted to have one, but here in Singapore you can’t fly drones in a lot of places due to aviation traffic inbound and outbound of WSSS, WSAP&WSSL

Oh, that sucks :(

Imagine if Zipair started operating zip line drones lmao

That be interesting. Zipline is working with many different companies at the moment so there is a possibility

FAR Part 108, gotta love it.

This is exactly why I still doubt the viability of drones in an urban environment, at least B2C

I’m not too worried. The more that technology advances and older delivery methods become more economically unviable, the more likely it is that delivery drones delivering Amazon goods and fast food are feasible. People can come up with ideas fast but trying to develop those ideas into reality will take time, however, in the end, the idea will become something that people will be thankful for. Zipline has already shown that they can start with very little and create something truly extraordinary.

i have probably broken many laws flying mine. regardless, here are some of my favorite shots from my Mavic Air 2
