Note: Don't be intimidated! The drone relies on GPS technology and is very stable. It will hover in place if you don't provide any control input. After filling out a registration form, you will be introduced to the equipment itself. This is an advanced/pro drone with video and still photo camera on board. You will spend 30 minutes to an hour getting comfortable piloting on a drone flight simulator, using the same controller you will use to fly. The drone relies on GPS technology and is very stable. It will hover in place if you don't provide any control input. In the simulator, you will take off, land, and navigate the drone. A short walk to the flight area, then 60 minutes of flight time taking video and stills all the while, in nature and over the ocean. I will first demonstrate flying for 5 minutes or so, then hand the controls to you. Afterward, we will copy the photo/video files to media you provide or your location in the cloud. Careful, you might get hooked! Note: The outdoor portion is subject to weather. The drone is capable of flying in wind so most breezes are not a problem. Rain will force cancellation/reschedule.

The time on the simulator will take place indoors in air conditioning in a quiet place with few distractions. The outdoor flight time will take place on the shoreline, low cliff areas, not beaches. You may invite a person or 2, but the experience is one on one. Note: failure to follow instructions, putting either the equipment, participants or staff in harms way will immediately terminate the experience.
