The Drone Trainer Podcast 074 – Elena Buenrostro
Have you heard of Women Who Drone? They’re a global community that inspires, educates and empowers women and girls with drone technology! Join in this week as I chat with founder and CEO, Elena Buenrostro!
Elena is a drone pilot with a background in video production. Her love of drones started with a trip to the Great Wall of China a few years ago. As she was planning her trip, she started thinking of what kind of equipment to take with her… and guess what? A drone quickly became one of her top choices! She picked up a DJI Mavic Pro, and successfully flew at the Great Wall! Since starting off with the DJI Mavic, she’s also picked up the Mavic 2 Pro, Mavic 2 Zoom, and Mavic Air. Who else is envious that she’s 4 for 4 in acquiring the Mavic line? 🙋🏻♂️
Elena prefers to edit with Adobe Premiere, leaving Final Cut Pro X in the dust a few years ago. She’s still working on a MacBook Pro, and finds that Premiere works just fine on the apple platform. It’s interesting as I’ve heard that the Adobe products work much better on windows computers. Either way, I still like Final Cut Pro and likely won’t be switching to Premiere Pro anytime soon.
A few months ago I spoke with Camilla Dellion on the podcast, and she is the one that connected me with Elena. During the chat, I discovered that like high school teacher Erin Knoetig, Elena is also teaching children how to fly. I love hearing about the cool things kids are doing with drones and the Swift programming language, so I commend both Erin and Elena for what they’re doing. Keep up the good work!
Drone project pricing is a common discussion point on my weekly drone mastermind meetings, and we also discuss Elena’s pricing model during this chat. There are many different factors to keep in mind, so be sure to listen to what Elena recommends as it’s some very solid advice. Also, if you’re interested in checking out our weekly online meetings where we chat about drones, just send me a message and I’ll invite you to next week’s meeting!
Well hopefully you enjoyed this week’s chat with Elena Buenrostro, the founder and CEO of Women Who Drone!
