Drone Pilot Adrian Jones - Hot Air BalloonsAdrian Jones is a drone pilot from California, who has recently started his drone business. He’s working full time in the IT industry, but is looking to make a break and start working with his drones full time. Since starting out with drones, he’s flown the Mavic Pro, Phantom 4 Pro, and now the Mavic 2 Pro.

When he gets the ball rolling, he’s looking at creating a unique system on his site to let Realtors choose their shoots. His plan is to shoot a series of movements and scenes, and then allow realtors to pick which shot they’d like to employ. He’s also knows that some Realtors will allow him creative freedom, and won’t use a system like that, but he hopes for those that are hands-on this will be a great system.

Since he’s new to the drone world, I asked Adrian if he wishes that he would have done anything differently. His recommendation was to not spend too much too early. It’s easy to spend, thinking that you’re going to be making bank at the start, but it’s better to wait. He regrets purchasing an expensive iMac computer and some other equipment, when he should have been out concentrating on creating content and developing his business. Great advice Adrian!

We also discuss the possibility of certain drones sending information back home. I wrote an article covering off my thoughts on it, and think it’s time to make an update based on some info that Adrian provided. I wasn’t aware, but apparently there are app developers working on blockers to ensure that your data stays with you, and isn’t transferred back to an unintended server. What are your thoughts?

I hope you enjoyed this week’s drone podcast with Adrian Jones from California! Once you’ve had a listen, feel free to leave a comment below so that Adrian and I can hear what you think!
