CBC News topo on drones for commercial use and hobby (came to see me!)

Mississauga, Ont., businessman Dany Thivierge, right, has established himself as a go-to man for hobbyists in need of drone parts and know-how. (Evan Mitsui/CBC)

Hi guys, pretty happy about that one! 

Last week we filmed with CBC Evan Mitsui to get a good view of how the UAV hobby side was doing. 

We spend a good half day showing off technologie that here we now take for granted but that the vast majority of the the non initiate people have a hard time grasping.  We went flying (couldn't get the Hexa to work... I swear this thing has severe stage fright syndrome, when it's time to shopw off it refuses!) but we had fun with a Quad and recorded everything on the entry level DJI Phantom. 

Was a very nice day and we had a blast.  

Check the second part of the interview to see me with Yuri a friend/customer with a very DIY setup.

Love this quote: "Thivierge has established himself as a go-to man for hobbyists in need of UAV parts and know-how. He says he's putting through over a dozen orders a night and hopes to soon be able to quit his day job."

Go Dany!
