What goes up, comes down!

I’m pretty proud of the fact that I was one of the first regional real estate agents to start using drone photography to show off rural blocks.

The very early drones didn’t have all the bells-and-whistles and my budding ariel photographer was also just learning to fly this new technology. He was very keen, and what he didn’t have in experience he more than made up for in enthusiasm.

We were both pretty excited at what the drone could do and had our eyes glued to the iPad screen showing us in real time what the drone was seeing.

The shots were amazing, and we had a birds-eye view of a stunning and very remote bush block. We were so enthralled with the images we were seeing that neither of us saw my car looming ever closer.

The drone shot past us, narrowly giving us a haircut as it nosedived into the car.

In stunned silence we both took time reflect on our close call and our poor aviation skills.

Miraculously the flying camera survived and we did too, to tell the tale.
