Drones are revolutionary technology. Anyone who says otherwise hasn’t seen all of the crazy applications regular people are discovering for them everyday. That being said, there are some things drones should just be left out of. Here are five such examples.
Warning: No matter how awesome it looks, we do not recommend you try any of this at home…or at all.
1) Don’t use a drone to record an NRA protest/parade.
It will undoubtedly end up like the drone in this campaign ad:
2) Don’t use an amateur to take aerial photos at a wedding.
Just stick with your professional photographer. You may be paying too much, but at least you don’t run the risk of head trauma.
3) Don’t use a drone for Oral Surgery.
ESPECIALLY ON CHILDREN.
4) Don’t use a drone a drone for batting practice.
5) Don’t use a drone to walk your dog.
Ok, this is by far the most creative entry on the list but any ‘real‘ dog is going to rip that thing out of the sky at the first sign of the mailman.
