A couple of years ago, I was really excited to fly my drone for the very first time.
Since then I took her up on a lot of flights around Nashville and north Florida, and even a time or two in the Bahamas.
When it was fun, it was really fun. But as time went by, I found myself flying it less and less because of a few reasons:
- I live near an airport so flight at my house is restricted.
- There are barely any areas in and around Nashville that are officially approved for drone flying.
- More restrictions seem to be going into effect weekly (registration, legal times to fly, locations to fly, prohibitions, rules, etc).
- I won’t let the man tell me what to do!
- It felt like one of those situations where it’s good to quit while I’m ahead.
By “quit while I’m ahead,” I mean the drone was in good shape, no major crashes, and I still had the drone… meaning I didn’t lose it in the ocean, a lake or river, or had it just fly off never to be seen again. So the other day I let her fly off with someone else.
It seemed like the right time and so far I don’t regret it. I bought a nice Pelican-style case from Sam’s Club and customized the interior to fit the drone and it’s accessories, so at this time I miss the case more than the drone 🙂
Do you have a drone? If so, how are you feeling about the rules in place that restrict flight in so many scenarios? What do you enjoy most about your drone?
Thanks for stopping by!
