Fly a drone through the amazing Saguaro forest as your guide narrates the experience! You will control the drone and view the live camera stream through a tablet. We’ll start off with a 10 minute hike to a scenic takeoff location. Once there, I will setup the equipment and give you a quick tutorial on how to use it safely. I will launch the drone and hand controls over to you. The flight will last 30 minutes with a potential for landing during that time. Plan on an hour for the whole experience. The area we will fly in is known for amazing Saguaro cacti and other desert plants only seen in this part of the country. If you've always dreamed of trying out a drone, this experience is for you!
I have been flying drones for 4 years including 1 year as a commercial FAA 107 certificate holder. My experience extends to building and programming the flight control software for drones. As an avid hiker, I know the best places for our drone experience and the interesting natural landmarks and facts to note.
I will provide all necessary drone equipment.
We will meet at a scenic pull-off along the Mt. Lemmon highway (about 40 minutes from downtown Tucson). This area has some of the largest Saguaro groves in the world.
Sunscreen - I'll have some for backup
-The rental is for one device (but you can bring more than one person) -May be rescheduled or canceled due to weather conditions -The rental will last 30 minutes (1 hour total experience).
