Drone photography has become increasingly popular in recent years, offering a unique perspective on the world. But what are the advantages and disadvantages of using drones for photography? In short, a drone depends on relatively heavy batteries with limited power and the ability to transport and charge them. It has a limited range, speed and flight altitude compared to manned aircraft, all of which limit the photographer's ability to reach a place, spend enough time photographing it, and obtain good composition and light. Although these problems do not make the drone any less surprising, they must be taken into account when planning an aerial shot and when selecting the right tool to perform it.
Some people are absolutely reckless, endangering people's properties &. They use drones to spy on people or fly near airports, leading to stricter laws for flying drones. I recently found an article that mentioned that drugs were being transported with larger drones, which is appalling. Flying close to people relaxing on beaches or on busy roads has caused some serious accidents. On the other hand, drones have many advantages.
They are inexpensive, rapidly deployed, work quickly and collect accurate data. The new generation of drones has been designed to take advantage of these strengths. They are getting smaller and have better cameras. They automatically avoid obstacles, can be programmed to perform custom work, and have RTK sensors that can collect location-based data with an accuracy of centimeters. These batteries are compact and last surprisingly long, but even drones that fly longer can't fly more than half an hour.
One of my first favorite photos when flying with a drone was a photo of a road crossing with roads that led to the ocean and the sunset. To date, there have probably been several hundred documented cases of privacy violations with drones. In recent years, there have been numerous reports of drones being literally shot down with firearms. In a rather ironic incident, a drone pilot who was performing a drone safety demonstration on FOX & Friends ended up losing control of the drone and crashing it against a nearby wall. A professional drone and a gimbal capable of mounting the Sony would cost me about 6000 USD more or less. I had to land a drone in the middle of a session with strong winds, even though the light was incredible, simply because the battery had run out. On the one hand, drones undoubtedly have an appeal both because of the fun they are to fly and because of their usefulness as commercial or industrial tools.
For this reason, effective regulation and training of drones are essential to promote the social acceptance of drones. In addition, if the drone is pre-programmed with an altitude of return to your home that is not adjustable by the user (such as the Phantom), you may end up trying to return home through a solid object. Right now, the FAA is reviewing the proposed remote identification system that seeks to make all drones identifiable by radio frequency or online. As the commercial drone industry becomes more competitive, it's becoming apparent that a drone pilot needs to have a somewhat expensive drone for customers to notice. The victory that the pilots won at that time was finally nullified when the FAA Reauthorization Act was enacted, which established in unclear terms the standards for the registration of drones, whether for recreational or professional use.
