Over the past few years, drones have been gaining massive popularity as it has entered the main stream market. Previously, drones were mainly used by military forces around the world. Drones were compact, small, and sturdy. They could enter restricted areas and get crucial footage of the enemy areas. They can even be used to drop bombs and other explosives. Drones are used a lot for this militaries. They can also be used to capture footage. Before drones, people used to take footage on helicopters which is expensive, over the top and sometimes the quality just wouldn’t be there. But with drones, they can be controlled from the ground, a top quality 4k camera can be installed and content can be shot very easily. Movies and production companies have also started using drone shots for scenic views or other hard to shoot scenes.
Drones are now available to the consumer nowadays as many companies are building them for the people. But this has caused some legal problems.
