Had to Retire the Drone after This Crash

By
Real Estate Agent with KW Northwest 103527

Since purchasing and using a drone for in-house home tours, we've had the pleasure of filming many wonderful properties. Our clients loved the views and the professionalism, enjoyed the news converage their homes recieved, being invited to the Museum of Flight to share knowledge on real estate drones, and were provided an opportunity they otherwise wouldn't have been afforded.

We should note, this not the end of our drone flying. Oh no. We've purchased a GoPro Karma and have already started filming again because we can't wait on client home advertising.

While making this video, which is posted on my personal YouTube account, I had the fun of reliving the home it was filmed at and the beautiful fall day it was while injecting some timeless humor. It is not a master piece yet it has some fun characteristics that make it worth watching till the end.

Enjoy and would love to hear your thoughts on the video, drones, and anything marketing related. Cheers!

Those darn trees just spring up out of nowhere huh, Toby?! So sorry you lost your drone but this gives you a great excuse to upgrade now. Looking forward to your future videos from your new drone.

They sprung out of know where. I couldn't believe a tree would move that fast. :) Here is a fun video made last month in Arizona - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtO7K5du6qg

Toby- I'm laughing and those darn trees!!!  My husband flies RC planes and someone out at the field had his first flight with his drone about 3 years ago. Now this man is an experienced pilot but this ended up being his first and last flight with this drone. crach-boom-time to buy a new drone.

I enjoyed your video.  I love the drone.  It goes places I am no longer able to hike to.

Good morning, Toby Barnett for us, it's worth the money to hire our photographer to do all of our aerial photos and videos.... that's an expensive toy to crash!!  so sorry you had that happen.... but I have a feeling you just wanted a better one!
