    Dad has one on his chanter, but that's about it.
    Love the idea, but I'd probably get bored of it too quickly.

    Re: QOTW: Do you own a drone?

    I bought a micro-drone a couple of years back - fairly basic with a bog standard fixed HD camera - fun for messing around indoors but far too easily swept away by gusts of wind to risk taking it beyond the back garden.

    Yes, Mavic pro, fly it occasionally and also took it to US and France on holiday and took some nice videos. Had to register with FAA for the US trip for $5 but no issues at the airports.
    Sticking to legal height and range.

    Nope, I'd only get one if I actually had a use for one (I don't).

    Re: QOTW: Do you own a drone?

    No.

    The uses are very limited in reality, and I would likely get bored of it quickly even if I did have something that fit one of the uses.

    Re: QOTW: Do you own a drone?

    No. I'm impressed by what I see (video/photo wise) but too breezy here and very limited use for the cost. Plus likely to require licences/training before long, especially after the Heathrow incidents...

    Re: QOTW: Do you own a drone?

    Considering i live just 2miles from Gatwick airport and the recent shenanigans in the area, i think it'd be a very bad idea

    Yes, a Phantom 3 4k drone, great for taking videos, really fun, just have to watch out, I broke a rotor, but it comes with extras.

    Re: QOTW: Do you own a drone?

    My parents got me a toy one a few years ago and it broke while being taken out of its package. So I don't really have one. What with all the rules about flying drones, especially in the city with people around, I'd rather have a drone sailboat or even drone submarine, though our lakes are too murky to see much

    Re: QOTW: Do you own a drone?

    My kids got me a cheap one for christmas which was a surprise. It's great fun but although I have a farm to play on I think an expensive one would be a nine day wonder.
