Drone Insight: Bring Your Drone With You!
On any given day, I have at least one drone with me. Most days, I have two. I have one for flying indoors and one for flying outdoors. I keep these quads in and on my trusty backpack. I have room on my backpack for my Blade Vortex 250 and my Traxxas Aton. Inside my backpack I keep batteries, props, tools, transmitter, FPV goggles, and my Inductrix FPV. With this set up, I can fly almost anywhere at any given time. This is a great way for me to introduce new-blood to the hobby or to fly a new spot.
The other day, my wife and I went on a horse back riding adventure in the woods. Of course, I had my Aton with me, and I flew a couple packs during a break from riding. Being able to fly in new areas or to take pictures and videos of new things is a great feeling. Sometimes we, as hobbyists, get stuck in a cycle of flying the same spot. This can be tedious, and eventually it can make you feel like you don’t want to fly. The same goes for car, helicopter, boat, plane, etc. enthusiasts. If you always go to the same spot, you can get burnt out on not just the spot, but the hobby in general. Some people like consistency and always going to the same spot which is great, but I’m not talking to those people. Flying new spots isn’t just a way to keep things fresh- it’s also a good way to meet new people. You may ending up sparking someone’s interest to try out the hobby for themselves or even to dust off that old car they had sitting in their closet. Always remember to Know Before You Fly, and if you’re flying at a new location, please be respectful to the regulars so you can come back again sometime.
