Some people think they’re a godsend. Others find them hokey or creepy. Undeniably, some have been used for dubious purposes. But the reality of drones is that they have become a useful and effective tool for a variety of industries. Here in Oregon, they are used for things like search & rescue missions, surveying elk populations, precision farming—and maybe a film festival or two.
While we haven’t all had the chance to operate one, Quango definitely appreciates drones. Also known as UAVs, or “unmanned aerial vehicles,” these remote-controlled flying robots have proven incredibly useful in capturing video from the air for several of our projects, like Dell’s Monster Excitement commercial and the Get in the Game spot we did for Alienware. And for our tech review video series, we got into the nitty-gritty details of the DJI Mavic Pro. What can we say? On top of their contributions to science, technology, and beyond, drones are just… cool.
