Over the past 2 days , I have been down to my local park, and set myself up on a bench flying my drone and not one negative comment. In fact the people where very positive about what I was doing.
I have never had negative attitudes either. Well not face to face anyway.
I was approached this evening by a woman with her little girl who wanted her daughter to see what Morecambe Bay looked like from above. I was happy to oblige.
Yeah, I’ve never had any negative comments really other than once when a lady thought that she knew the drone laws better than me. 99 per cent of the time I normally have a couple of spectators interested in what I’m seeing
Yeh I have had similar lots of positive comments and stopping to ask questions of what drone it is and how good is the picture quality and when I show them on my iPad they are amazed and complimentary only had one guy tell me I was on private property I just left as I had already finished getting the shots I wanted and was in no mode to argue but did not see any signs up anywhere I think he was just being a knob
There is always one bigheaded knob
again today , nothing but mutual respect from us and dog walkers.
I had the landowner come to me last week just amazed how stable the drones are and how clear the pictures/vids are and asked how much to have some arial prints done, i of course said absolutely nothing as you’re kind enough to let me fly on your land, i now have another farm to fly on and also do pest control for them. Happy days
Nice one Matty
The only downfall is it’s 97 miles away and can only get there Sunday till Monday afternoon lol
Never mind Dave @Matty1 at least it’s all positive and puts the farmer in amiable mood for others that follow in your footsteps.
See you on the Chase soon hopefully.
I recently posted some sunrise pics taken from a field at the top of our village, did it openly ( took a chance) as I didn’t know who owned it.
On the way back I met a couple walking the same route with there dogs, chatted a while about the beautiful view from there and I asked if they new who owned it? Turned out it’s their farm and as like others they were really interested in what I’d been doing and said I was welcome to fly from there whenever I want “ just don’t film the house garden as it’s a mess”
Goes to show not everyone is anti drone.
One of my New Years Resolutions apart from more droning, is to always have my cheapo VisuoXS812 which is a brilliant little learning drone and weighs well within the 250g limit including battery readily available and charged so anyone who shows an interest can be invited to have a first short go at flying. My usual practice haunt gets the occasional walkers, passers-by so is a very safe area to learn.
I haven’t any time now for using it myself and it has 6 batteries available. Might dispel some of the worries some people have through lack of positive information and spread the good word.
had another good day . the general public where resectful an polite. what a good flying session
