Drones are a lot of work. I call them big boy toys but a lot goes into buying these things. Insurance/Warranty, maintenance, you got to look out for counterfeit or lousy copycats, these things are investments. I've seen guys on the fast and furious tip with their drones. As a film maker, I find it really useful to turn to drones instead of renting a helicopter just to get a birds eye view of my characters or the city they are in, that's way too much money for a simple shot.
I may not have a drone now but soon I will be showing you the latest drones in person (well on camera).
