Your home can now have their own personal indoor drones. Because of its affordability, those curious can get drones for as low as $20.
While some use them as a flying camera, most casual owners fly one at their home just for the sake of flying. Of course, I am talking about smaller drones – ones that can easily fit inside your room.
However, before buying a drone for yourself, you have to ask – is it a good fit?
Home Drones and Disasters
Think about your current living situation for a second. Will introducing a small, flying device make your home worse? With indoor drones, you have a smaller space to fly. This can result in frequent accidents in case you are not careful. Do you have fragile items on top of shelves? Do you have items that can easily be knocked over? Drones can pack a pretty punch. Do not let the size fool you. A good bump can send an object crashing to the floor. A good bump can also send your drone crashing.
Home, Hair, Pets
Another thing to consider is the ones living in your home. Do you have pets or small children? The spinning rotors can easily cut skin if you are not careful. A flying object can also fascinate pets and kids, and may provoke them into catching it.
Flying a drone indoors can also be troublesome for those with long hair. Longhaired pets and the ladies of the household may not appreciate a drone tangling onto them. Due to the high speed of the rotors, any slight contact can result in very tangled (and painful) incidents.
While drones are cheap, available, and can look fun, having them around the house can be a mistake. Like any other high-powered item, getting one requires a lot of consideration. A drone can be more harm than fun if used in wrong instances. Make sure to ‘drone-proof’ the house before attempting any flying adventures.
