Two days ago, I caught a drone when I’m not supposed to.
It was during post video shoot and before packing up, I asked my colleague if he can take a pic or video of me from the drone just to see what it was like.
I saw him catch the drone so effortlessly. The stands on the sides were actually handles and I thought it’s just going to land on me like a helipad. Silly, I know.
Anyway, here’s the video proof. I jumped on it, grabbed it by the handle and “walked it”with me. The “wings” were actually pretty loud that I couldn’t hear my colleagues shouting:
“Let it go!”
“Don’t hold it!
“Release the drone”
And when they saw that it’s pointless to shout at me since I couldn’t hear it anyway, they stopped “flying the drone”hence the end of the video.
I learned later on that it’s supposed to land safely on it’s own because apparently what I did may cause a potential damage on it’s sensor.
Geeez sorry!!! Who knew? I was just a kid trying to catch the drone like it was a kite or something.
