The fight against the Covid 19 pandemic all over the world resulted in the restriction of people movement and people to people contact. That is why emerging technologies like the use of drones have been readily explored.  The use of drones at this time of crisis resulted in the reduction of front liners being infected, made possible the monitoring of large areas without physical contact. 

For Vloggers, drone enthusiast, photography hobbyist and those who use drones for leisure purposes. Is the use of drones still relevant today or is buying drones today relevant despite the Covid pandemic? I believe drones are still important, why? Aside from leisure purposes drones today are being used in so many ways to combat the pandemic. They are used in Surveillance, Broadcast, Disinfectant Spraying, Medicine and Grocery Deliveries and Temperature Check among others. Operating and controlling this UAVs to execute a specific task requires expert level drone pilots/operators.

  • Battery doesn’t last long not even longer than 30 mins., you can opt to buy additional batteries for longer flight time
  • Sad to say drones this cheap do not offer any stabilization to the camera such as 3-axis gimbal and alike
