drones and boats

Welcome to some weekend fun and entertainment with drones. We spend a lot of time scouring the web for news, information and more on all the great drones around the globe. In our travels, we encounter some fun and funny stuff, and we want to start sharing that with you. Today we will be taking a look at mixing drones and boats.

No matter what the title says, we refer to this as our Good Idea / Bad Idea series, we just figured a new name was in order, suggestions welcome. Let it be known that we do not endorse or recommend anything we will post here, sort of a “do not try this at home” vibe, but somebody tried it, it was interesting or funny and here it is.

Drones and boats

Next up in our series, let’s explore some fun with drones, more specifically taking the boat out and chasing it with a drone.

Before we begin, let’s get a few things out of the way:

Drone legal and safety

Cool idea:

This video showcases the creations drone can create if everything goes to plan. This is a safer choice to make with your drone, just make sure to keep your distance and follow all of the FAA’s rules.

Bad idea:

Unlike the last video, this one goes terribly wrong. They managed to get the launch from the boat correct but that’s not the tricky part. Trying to land a drone on an unstable and fast moving platform is quite a challenge, even for the highly capable DJI Inspire drone.

(Warning: NSFW language at the end.)

Cool idea / bad idea wrap up

As always, we officially recommend you do not try this at home. We want you to always fly safe, to obey all drone laws, but also to have some fun. Of course, if you do try this, please share the details, it’s always fun to see some shenanigans.

If you think this entire series is a bad idea, let us know in the comments below. Otherwise, enjoy the crazy antics caught on film.
