Meet Our 5 “Dronie” Photo Contest Winners

IDE conference Los Angeles 2016A few weeks ago, we hosted an aerial photography raffle for UAV Coach community members.

The folks over at International Drone Expo gave us a full-access, 2-day pass to their drone industry conference in Los Angeles on December 9-10th, 2016.

And we wanted to host a photo raffle to drum up support for IDE, to see what and where all of you are flying, and to give away some prizes of our own in the process.

Our photo theme?

The dronie.

You know, a photo of yourself flying a drone.
