With so many beautiful sights around Morgan County, a drone is being offered as a donation drawing at this year’s TNMLF.
Needless to say, drones can be extremely useful devices for a plethora of applications ranging from agriculture to national security. However, you can’t forget that drones are also really fun to use. The miracle of flight is something that has fascinated man for millennia, so it’s no wonder that hobby flight enthusiasts have been tinkering with flying machines since the late 1800s.
The good news is that personal and hobby use of drones is perfectly legal in the United States. Recreational flying can be done anywhere but is best if done in open locations so that you can always see your aircraft. This is called line–of sight flying. Attaching a camera to your drone is also a lot of fun for gathering beautiful imagery and video of the world around you.
Until the emergence of drones, to take aerial photos or videos, you needed a really tall ladder or a friend with a helicopter/plane to be able to capture the footage. A word of caution, be careful of who, what, and where you take photos and video with your drone. Privacy is a major concern for many people.
We will be drawing for the DJI Phantom 3 Standard. Tickets $5.00 Each. Check with any
member of the TNMLF Committee for tickets. Winning ticket will be drawn on the day of the festival. You do not have to be present to win.
