Drone Update

I have had several requests for an update on Storm’s drone and I am proud to announce that after an exhausting and rigourous FAA online examination Storm has secured his commercial drone pilot’s license.  If he is able to locate someone actually willing to pay him to fly the drone, he is now legally able to accept payment.  So…. if you have always wanted a video of your real estate, a close up inspection of your entire roof or an aerial video of you checking some daring adventure off your bucket list, give us a call!

Thanks to all of you who have emailed to me suggestions of activities that Storm could video me doing.  Suggestions included hang gliding, rock climbing on sheer cliffs, and bicycling on cliff edge single track mountain trails and I assure that once we are traveling again I will NOT be doing any of those things!

However Storm has not been idle while he awaits his drone flying for hire windfall.  While we are parked in an agreeable location he has been practicing drone control and videography.  During a recent photo session in which I coerced my youngest niece into allowing me to practice taking her picture with my new fixed 50mm lens, Storm honed his skills controlling the drone while capturing us on film.  No animals or persons were harmed during the filming of this video.  Here are the results of both of our efforts.

  1. You guys are nothing short of amazing! Excellent photos and such a lovely subject, we wish her well. Storm is getting really good with the drone, I may have to get my rating as well, once he gets local business I may have to take up the slack when you all head out again :>) Keep the blogs coming and be sure to save them for a future book, Wishing you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and great New Year. GOD BLESS

      You are so right – someone will definitely need to fill the void once he leaves and you would be the perfect candidate! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you guys too.
