Imagine you have finally acquired that hot new DJI drone you have wanted for what has felt like an eternity.
Not wanting to wait one minute more, you rush out of your home and try your hand at becoming a drone pilot.
Maybe you have some natural talent, maybe you do not, and even possibly you have factored that into the purchase price of the product, or you may have disregarded it entirely. This scenario typically goes one of two ways: A drone pilot has difficulty managing the device and damages it or the pilot is talented (and a bit lucky) and flies her new drone without issue.
Either way, there is no singular approach to learning how to operate a drone, and given how ubiquitous they are becoming, licensing, registration, and even issues of required coursework have remained at the forefront of debates regarding how to regulate this booming industry that is beloved by amateur and professional photographers and videographers alike.
