Drones TED talk – Meet the dazzling flying machines of the future

Autonomous systems expert Raffaello D’Andrea presenting incredible high tech drone projects meant to change how we see the future. 

Embark in this amazing 10 min eye-opening presentation of what the potential of drones could actually be, and how fast we're accelerating towards a very exciting and full of potential future.

The real reward is the journey and the act of creation. It's a continual reminder of how wonderful and magical the universe we live in is, that it allows creative, clever creatures to sculpt it in such spectacular ways.

The 5 types of drone technology


A self regulating drone/steady wing copter called the Tail-sitter

It's being thrown in the air violently then quickly able to readjust it's trajectory and keep a stable hovering, all on automatic pilot. 

This type of technology has been seen before in the activity of hobby RC flyers, but the amount of stability presented here is unmatched.


The second Item presented is The Mono-spinner

The world's mechanically simplest controlled flying machines, invented just a few months ago. It has only ONE moving part: a propeller. 

The system is very electronically complex though and not quite what you'd expect in terms of design.

The omni-copter

“an exercise in excess compared to the frugal mono-spinner” – as the creator underlined. It's a highly symmetrical machine that's ambivalent to orientation, being capable to move anywhere in 3D space in a fashion that hasn't been observed before.


Who even needs that broken motor anyway-drone

The fourth contraption in this mind blowing presentation is a quadcopter made of 2 separate control axis that are independent of one another. This enables it to fly even if it looses one motor, or even 2.

The last technological feature shown has been observed in other similar projects and it features multiple mini quad-copters. 

These are autonomously flying in a tandem, programmed to do execute complex 3D patterns and even delicate functions like building walls with bricks or bridges with pieces of string.In this case, Raffaello presents a beautiful light dance with dozens of mini quad-copters flying above the amazed audience like a little swarm of fireflies.

How do you make money with your drone, though?

Okay, so you got your new and fancy drone, but how do you stand out from any dad out there who has the same drone and watched some tutorials online?

I did exactly that and barely had any success. 

But now I’m charging 5x as much as before and even have to refuse clients from time to time.

I even bought about 7 online courses… and I didn’t make much progress.

So how did I finally make it to this level?

If you want the short answer, I learned everything from this guy Alex, who’s making $200 per hour with his drone. And he’s even teaching exactly how to do that.

This is pretty much what you need to know:


1. Make sure you have a proper drone.

If you have any of the latest DJI Drones, like the Mavic Air 2, for example, you’re ready to start making money.

No need to overthink this, but if it’s any help, check this comparison of the best camera drones compared in 2020.

2.Learn how to create the best content to stand out

You won’t stand out from the next dad who bought a DJI drone for Cristmass in the eyes of your clients if you don’t do this.

It’s WAY more important to know what you’re doing than the gear you have.

You’ll need to learn and master the following:

  • Flying your drone(to stand out from people with basic drone shots)
  • Preparing for the flight and weather in advance
  • Learn the best drone settings (you need a proper setup template)
  • Create the Video Script (it's way easier if you know what to shoot)
  • Have a set of great cinematic shots you know how to do
  • Know how to edit the video so it stands out
  • Learn how to color grade

This is why you HAVE to invest in a proper way to learn things (instead of watching tutorials here and there).

3.Find clients that pay 5x more than regular

But not so fast.

You won’t make a penny if you don’t know how to find your clients.

I have struggled finding clients even when my videos were getting pretty good.

Until I learned a few tricks and how to find and approach them so they won’t be able to say no.

And what’s best, I learned how to get the price I asked for.

How can you do the same?

I have tested quite a few courses online and watched tons of videos on youtube, but frankly, I have learned more from one single course than from everything else… and all that in like a weekend.

Made back the money from this investment in myself in a single week and then much more.


How do I learn all of this? From youtube?

You could simply go online and learn everything in terms of video from youtube, forums, facebook groups etc.

However, let me tell you, it’s the worst way to learn all of this(and the slowest).

You won’t have a Complete Step By step guide on how to do everything.

I found myself frustrated, even after I learned how to do most of the video stuff that I still lacked some knowledge and I didn’t know why my shots weren’t standing out.

I got some general promotion ideas from some articles online, but again… I didn’t have much success and was charging too little for my time.

This is exactly where I learned how to make $200 per hour with my drone (From A to Z)

This course is hold by Alex Harris, who’s an international video creator, director, and drone operator with tons of experience.

And I had a great time stealing his know-how(and greatly profited from it, lol).

I recommend you watch his video presentation bellow and check out the course sales page. It’s quite cheap, considering you’re getting 320+ minutes of everything you need to know, step by step and 80+ minutes on how to actually find the ideal clients for you.

I'm a big drone enthusiast, the owner of DronesGator.com and I also make weekly videos on my drone YouTube channel.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
