Welcome to some weekend fun and entertainment with drones. We spend a lot of time scouring the web for news, information and more on all the great drones around the globe. In our travels, we encounter some fun and funny stuff, and we want to start sharing that with you. Today we will be taking a look drones with wings.
No matter what the title says, we refer to this as our Good Idea / Bad Idea series, we just figured a new name was in order, suggestions welcome. Let it be known that we do not endorse or recommend anything we will post here, sort of a “do not try this at home” vibe, but somebody tried it, it was interesting or funny and here it is.
Drones with wings
Next up in our series, let’s explore some fun with drones that have 1 or more wings as well as motors and propellers.
Before we begin, let’s get a few things out of the way:
Drone legal and safety
This video comes from Tech Force showing off the XCraft X PlusOne fixed-wing drone. Unlike many other fixed-wing drones, this is one has the ability to do to vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL).
This video comes from drone maker Parrot, showcasing their Parrot Disco fixed-wing drone. The Parrot Disco is a more traditional fixed-wing drone making you throw it to takeoff and skid on the ground to land. Both of these drones open up great possibilities in the commercial and agricultural spaces.
Good idea / bad idea wrap up
As always, we officially recommend you do not try this at home. We want you to always fly safe, to obey all drone laws, but also to have some fun. Of course, if you do try this, please share the details, it’s always fun to see some shenanigans.
If you think this entire series is a bad idea, let us know in the comments below. Otherwise, enjoy the crazy antics caught on film.
