Just don't call us dronies

Just don't call us dronies

 

Not so long ago a passerby referred to us as “dronies”. Well, that was the first time anyone had used that term to describe us and weren’t sure how to respond; we simply gritted our teeth, forced a smile and gave a friendly wave. What else could we have done?

Now Lunar Aerial Imaging doesn’t have a real problem with the word; indeed it’s a great descriptor for all the hobbyists out there and we remember that all that time ago we started out as hobbyists. We respect them and think the word dronie is an accurate and affectionate way of referring to them. Let’s get this on the record: we love dronies (as long as they keep to the rules).
