First Drone Flight | Week 47
“Everyone needs a hobby just to have fun and enjoy themselves.” – Bryce Ward 3/27/2021
Three years ago, my father got me my first Propel Drone, and as much I want to say, I preceded to become a Drone flying. Expect the truth is my first drone sat collecting dust on my Lego bins until this past week when I decided to dust it off and take it for a spin.
Learning To Fly
Before taking your first drone flight, you need to make sure you fly in a large clear area—for example, a football field or park. Trust me, after connecting my controller, my curiosity got the best of me, and I pushed the Land/Start button. I had a drone flying around my flying in my room and had no idea how to control it.
Once I got my drone landed, I took it outside and had a blast flying around, spying on my cows. Just be careful when your drone is flying at a higher altitude than the wind can still push around your drone. I had my drone crash into my neighbor’s tree and tumbled to the ground on their side of the fence. Luckily my drone survived the fall unharmed, and with a hook duct-taped to a long stick, I was able to retrieve it.
Hey, thank you for reading this week’s post! I hope you had a good laugh at this week’s post. I had fun learning how to fly my first drone, and I can’t wait to try it out again once the weather clears up again. Have you flown a drone before? I would love to hear of your drone flying stories in the comments below!
