I wanted a drone a few years back, a mate of mine was building a custom one and I saw how much trouble he had to go through to make one flying while another mate of mine was flying a phantom 2 with quite a fair bit of work, trying to defish-eye GoPro footage.
Back then I felt like it wasn't the right time to put my money into it. They complained but they loved it. They told me how awesome it was to own one and fly around, capture things that weren't possible a few years back unless you own a helicopter.
So now, 2016, I recently quit my job and decided to pursue my own thing. I have a project coming which I thought that aerial videography would rather be complimentary to it. So after a few weeks of thinking, I went to a shop and bought a drone, no it's not the new DJI Phantom 4 but instead a Phantom 3 pro which at this discounted price is a steal.
I took her out to Khao yai national park and flew her around. I still have a lot to learn and my hands do still shake every time she goes up in the sky.
Here's a littler video of my first drone outing.
