The Drone Trainer Podcast 070 – Steve Adcock

Steve Adcock is a drone pilot from Adelaide, in South Australia. Actually, he’s not right in Adelaide, but he’s 30km to the east. Regardless, he’s flying all over the area, and is having a blast with his drone business. He’s currently flying a variety of drones, including several DJI drones from the Spark all the way up to the Inspire 2. He thinks that he’s had 13 drones so far, with 3 of them being written off. Good ratio I guess? haha

Adelaide Drone Pilot Steve AdcockHe’s been flying in a variety of industries, including real estate, construction, military, and agriculture. Most of his work self described as “pretty pictures and video.” He’s also done a lot of work with production houses, and enjoys the pressure working in that environment. For a lot of his work, there is only one chance to get the shot, so he makes sure everything is ready before the shoot. Listen in to the podcast to hear how he describes a shoot where a large ship was leaving the dock. Yeah, that’s one of those operations where you can’t press pause and have the boat start all over again!

Being from Australia, Steve isn’t familiar with what it’s like flying in some of the freezing temperatures that we get here in Canada. If you’re looking for winter and cold temperature flying tips, have I got the answers for you! Check out the link in the previous sentence, as well as my tips during our discussion.

Beyond the weather and stressful shoots, we also discuss marketing ideas, video editing, and advantages of dual vs single operator flight. We also talk about the massive advantages of practicing ATTI mode flight. Be sure to listen in and subscribe to The Drone Trainer podcast, wherever you get your audio!
