THIS PHOTO ALMOST DIDN'T HAPPEN...
We finally bought a drone earlier this year and we were so excited to take it away travelling with us.
We practiced a bit back in New Zealand but not as much as we should have! So, when we were flying it at our first destination - Bali - we were still very much rookies!
We had picked ourselves up a DJI Spark as we thought it would be a good practice drone, in case we crashed while we were learning!
And we did... a couple of times. Well, Mario did..
On the beach...
And, he got sand in the motor!
That's when flying the drone became my responsibility... It was mainly Mario's choice, not mine, as flying the drone still scares me!
And yet somehow, I love it! ❤️
It took awhile to figure it all out, get the sand out of the motor, get used to the settings and learn about adjusting the brightness etc to suit the conditions.
But, now I wouldn't go back and I'm proud to be one of the women who drone
Do you drone?
Honestly, if you are thinking about buying one, do it! Then practice, practice practice!
If you get Sand in the motors, it's not the end of the world! Remove the propellers, then use compressed air (or a hairdryer on cold mode) to blow the air out.
We almost didn't take this photo because we didn't know you could adjust the lighting settings. If the sun is too bright and you're seeing a white screen, you can turn down the exposure using the sliding settings on the right.
Watch YouTube tutorials to figure out different moves you can do with the drone. It's a great way to learn and then make sure you practice them in a low pressure situation - so, not when you're on a tour and have 30 minutes at each location 😅
