What Happened After The World's First Delivery of Wings By Drone

Services for Real Estate Pros with The Silent Partner Marketing

World's First Delivery of Wings By DroneErick called me two weeks ago. You don't know him, but you should. He's one of the quiet giants out there helping take over the world with drones.

So, I'm hoping you'll give me access to the video," he said. "You know - THE video.

He was talking about the piece that brought one of our clients international media exposure six months earlier. Working with Erick Royer and his partner Joe, our teams successfully launched the world's first delivery of wings by drone.

Good Morning America wants the piece," he said. "They're having us come down for a week for a segment called 'Game of Drones'. What do you think?

It was one of those double-edged swords. I wanted to say "no"...as the client we ran the event for defaulted on all of their bills. But let's be honest. It's Good Morning America. So of course we said yes.

Kyle - that is awesome.  It is great to be featured on Good Morning America.  I hope you comment shames that client to paying the bills due.

So does the pilot of the drone have a commercial FAA operators license?  That is the biggest issue I have with the whole "drone" debate. Beyond that it was pretty cool.

Kyle Reyes Too bad you got stiffed by your client on this project. You will have the last laugh at some point. Did blue cheese dip and hot sauce go with the wings?

Awesome video.  So many applications for drones, but just like cars there will need to be some 'rules of the road', er, air.

Good morning Kyle. It sucks that you haven't gotten paid for all the work that you have done. Unfortunately that is pretty common in that industry, hopefully you can end up getting paid, even if it means over time.

Drone photography is especially effective for properties with acreage and other features that are hard to appreciate with pictures from the ground level only.
