Vineyard Patrol

I want to fly one of these drone aircraft in our vineyard as a form of bird control. Where can I buy one? How can it fit it with some sort of noisemaking device? Has anybody done such a thing?

Incidently, I do not do facebook or twitter or any of that stuff, much prefer email.

  • Hey Emily. I'm not sure about a noisemaking device (that might be a cool original project to post), but you can also check out this guide for drone ideas: http://uavcoach.com/buy-a-drone/

    It's got a section for drones under $200 and aerial videography drones.

  • Thanks Matt. I'm not sure why I cannot reply to your email, but it says "don't do that." I am in Maryland., about 20 minutes from a small town in Pa, so I have access to both states. The only hobby store I know of is more into crafts than this sort of thing. I am a licensed pilot, so I think I would understand the nuts and bolts. However, I have never "flown" a drone. I'll see what Google turns up.

  • You might try to google any local rc flying clubs, they might be able to offer some insight on where to purchase one in your area
  • My $ limit is around $500. I am perfectly capable of flying this thing, and would want to do that anyway. No fun if it's auto. I have no idea where to buy such a thing, and I do not shop online. Old lady, don't trust online buying.
