Been thinking about the drone for about a year now...but done nothing about it. I'll be curious to see your video posts.

As in tearing the seats when taking off/landing? I have heard concerns about that. Might have to think that through.

For those of you considering a drone, here is a good comparison. The guy is a little "out there", but it gives you great side by side info on the advantages of each model by DJI.

What I have seen people do rather than land the drone on the boat is to bring the drone to a hover within reach and have someone grab the feet and while they hold on to the drone perform the shutdown procedure.

I see this being an EPIC FAIL and many people taking a swim when every time the drone is right at fingertips and then the operator hitting the throttle and scaring the unsuspecting victim. I mean have you heard one of these dang things take off?!?!?! Take some seasoned citizen like Chad for example, you pull this trick on him and he'd grab his chest like Fred Sanford and start screaming for Elizabeth!

Q: Why does it take SOOO long to put pills in a bottle?!?!

A: Pills in a bottle is the easy part! The making sure it doesn't KILL you is the part that takes an extra second or two!
