5 Reasons Why You Should Buy a Drone
So, you’re thinking about buying a drone? Of course you are – smart move. And why wouldn’t you? They’re fantastic in every way (we’re totally not biased).
With the drone market continuing to go from strength to strength, there is now a drone for everyone and every occasion – recreationally or commercially.
Here are 5 of the best reasons to invest in a drone.
A drone for every occasion
Whether you want your footage to be cinematic for a big project or smaller tasks like your weekly vlog, there is now a drone for everyone.
A common misconception is that drones are only for professionals, but while that might have been the case once upon a time, it simply isn’t the way anymore.
That’s right, there’s a drone for everyone whatever the need – for commercial purposes to even those that just want to improve their selfie game.
Social media presence
People seem to put everything on social media today, from freight trains to food, but what’s going to make you stand out from the rest? That’s right, aerial drone shots.
With the aerial photography capability on drones, you’ll quickly be able to ensure you stay ahead of the crowd and head straight to the top of the social media game.
Socialise and become involved in a new community
Once you invest in a drone you’ll soon realise that ‘droning’ has a passionate community full of lovely individuals from beginners to experts, who are all happy to discuss and share their experiences with one another.
When out and about flying your drone, you’ll find that you tend to attract other people who will come over and ask you about it – maybe even ask for help with their own drone – helping you to socialise with a wider range of people with similar interests.
You’ll also find that there are large internet communities of people, on both social media and forums based around drones; where users swap tips, share cool videos and even help each other to improve their flying, photography and photo editing skills.
Unique photographic perspective and pristine video footage
With a drone, it is possible to capture footage that you’d not be able to capture any other way. It’s as simple as that.
There are many things you expect to see in everyday life, your home, the field you walk through to work, and you usually see them in the same way – but what if you could see them from above and in incredible 4K? This is one of the huge appeals of drones.
Taking pictures from above and from different aerial angles not only makes for phenomenal shots but can also bring a whole new perspective to your photography skills and also the world around you. Yeah, deep.
Avenue to a new career
Ever thought about going down a new career path? Well a drone might be the perfect avenue for doing just that.
Drones are now being used for a huge number of events and jobs, from surveying all the way to capturing weddings, there’s seemingly a drone in every profession nowadays.
But if you are looking to fly a drone commercially, you’ll have to get yourself a PfCO and the best way to do that is through Uplift Drones (obviously).
The PfCO – or the CAA Permission for Commercial Operations as it is more formally known – is granted by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and allows a company or person to undertake work with their SUA (Small Unmanned Aircraft – the official term for a drone under 20kg).
Both courses on offer provide you with two days of classroom-based theory training, or Ground School, while the Advanced version also adds a day of practical Flight Training with our resident experts.
There are endless reasons why you should buy a drone, in fact, we could have probably chosen up to a hundred more reasons why buying a drone is a fantastic idea.
