No More Droning Along

Yesterday I sold my DJI Spark drone. As with a car or other certain items, I lost some money on the deal. Instant depreciation. So why did I sell the little aircraft? I was and still am disappointed. Disappointed with the weather as this winter has been the windiest winter I’ve seen in my five years here in Las Vegas.

It’s just too bloody windy in Las Vegas for such a small drone. Also, I have been fearful to fly the drone because of the incredible, and rather ridiculous to a degree, flight restrictions. No, you can’t fly here! No, you can’t fly in the BLM Scenic Loop area! I’ve received glares that tell me to piss off while flying the drone. Enough.

The sole purpose for my purchasing this drone was airborne photography. Sure, it took decent photos and video considering the little itty bitty camera onboard. But, it ‘s not going to keep up with my Nikon, it’s lenses and ND filtres obviously. So, that’s the end 0f my drone days. And I’m OK with that too. All the photos and video were saved.

The End.

  1. So sorry to hear you sold your drone 😦 I love my DJI Phantom although I don’t take it out nearly enough. All I said was I would love to capture photos over the canyon as we driving up the mountain one day. On my next b’day, I got the Phantom! I didn’t realize I would also have to learn to fly, LOL! I’ve found people are interested in the flying aspect of the drone; they always stop and ask questions… how to fly, quality of photos, etc. I think they are really more interested in how close son gets to canyon/rocks… I’ve told him that if he crashes the thing, HE will be the one swimming across the river to retrieve it, LOL!

    • I am glad you have had a better experience with drones, Jema. The darn thing sat in my house for at least a week while the wind blasted day after day. Meanwhile, the Nikon is always ready to go. It was a bad investment on my part, gladly it wasn’t but a few hundred dollars. Ugh.
