We as a species have always been intrigued and fascinated by the idea of flight. A look at our history can tell you what happens when an idea plants a seed in our minds.

It’s not all that surprising that the idea of flying machines that can gather real-time data, images and be flown remotely has had a massive impact on the world.

We’ve all seen camera pans over mountains, stunning vistas or some other wide, sweeping landscape. Aerial photography and videography captures some of the most stunning images out there.

But gone are the days of ridiculously priced aerial footage or images. Drone photography allows you to capture that same kind of landmark footage for much cheaper.

All that’s needed is a remote-controlled drone (also called an unmanned aerial vehicle, or UAV) and camera equipment.

What are drones, though?

A drone is simply a small-scale aircraft. Most commercial drones are quadcopter variants, which is lifted and propelled by four rotors, piloted either autonomously by onboard computers or by a remote control.

In recent years, drones have been used by the government and military, generally when it’s potentially dangerous to send in a human, or for information reconnaissance because they don’t tire. The latest developments in modern technology and the drone market have allowed companies to manufacturer commercial versions for consumer use.
