Well, it’s the last Monday of January…and I’m still in shock it’s 2018! I was watching the original Blade Runner last night and it takes place in 2019. Watching movies like that are so crazy because of where they thought we would be by this time. It is a phenomenal sci-fi fi movie (if you haven’t seen it, do it!) and we aren’t that far off from flying cars and big crazy electronic cities! Soon enough we will be having drones operating cars for us and making the roads safer and who else knows how we will utilize drones as a world. We are excited to be on the cutting edge of drone usage for the US and we welcome the changes! As long as we don’t have a Skynet situation haha (Terminator reference, if you also haven’t seen T1 or T2 please stop reading and watch immediately).
This week we will be going around Mystic & Westerly getting some footage and doing some 3D modeling! Looks like the weather will cooperate and we might – emphasis on might – get some snow! I love snow and I love filming in snow. Keep your eyes on the sky and if you see 2 people staring up in the sky at a bird come by and say hi, that’s probably us.
Well we’ve had some interesting weather here in New England this past week. The week started out cool and then by Tuesday we had buckets of rain. It sounded awesome on our metal roof! We went down to Napatree yesterday and there was an awesome huge tree that was swept onto the shore. We’re hoping to get some flights in this week if the weather cooperates, but we shall see. This has been a weird winter, it was bitterly cold in December and made flying difficult due to the frigid temps. Fingers crossed we can get up in the sky tomorrow! In the mean time here is a picture taken at Napatree…
Flash back to Sunday morning. It was in the teens for temperatures and who knows what the wind chill was. We decided to pack up the drones, our pup and head to Watch Hill. Have you ever been there before? It’s such a gorgeous spot, especially in the Winter. It was awesome to walk along the frozen beach and see some dedicated surfers braving the cold to catch some waves. During our walk we noticed this sailboat stuck in the ice and we knew we had to document it. We can’t help but imagine the owner of this sailboats face as he discovers what happened to his boat. Hopefully there isn’t any long term damage! The ice was so thick you could walk out to the boat. But, it was also very slippery and we weren’t feeling that sure footed to venture out for a closer look. So we sent the reliable drones instead to investigate further.
This is our first official blog post! Thank you for taking a few minutes to read this and enjoy a video we did over the summer of the Stonington Borough in CT. This blog will be a cornucopia of things. We will have topic related blogs as well as travel updates and some of our work.

We love how easy it is to follow along with your favorite people and see what their day to day life holds. Join us on our drone journeys!
