A Perfect Moment For a Private Proposal (With a Drone) #drone #droneday
A drone helped this couple share a special moment. At the time it was an intimate proposal but because they were able to capture it with a drone they can share it forever. I could see a whole wedding/event industry taking advantage of this idea.
When the couple vacationed on Panarea, an island north off the coast of Sicily, Italy, in the summer of 2019 and found a remote hike, Mr. Perra knew it was the perfect moment. “He had recently bought a drone, and so we were taking pictures and kind of exploring this really beautiful view,” Dr. Janssen said. “And with the drone up in the air, he angled it so we were both in view. I was kind of posing for a picture. I was getting ready to smile for the picture. I turned around and he was down on one knee.”
Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
