I got my first drone for Christmas in 2017. Although it was a cheap drone at just $35.00, I was extremely excited! I had wanted a drone for years but always thought they were rather expensive. I loved flying my little drone but after getting it stuck in trees and crashing it several times the first week I knew it was time to invest in a better quality model. I did quite a bit of research and read several reviews before electing to purchase the Holy Stone HS100.
My best friend lives in Florida but owns a pine tree farm next door to me in North Carolina so I wanted to be able to take pictures and shoot video for him of his land. We belong to an organization which performs controlled burns so I also needed something that was able to document our burning activities. The HS100’s 720MP camera with a gimbal mount was the perfect solution. Check out the video below to see how the HS100 captured a controlled burn in Aberdeen, NC.

Since getting my Holy Stone HS100 in January of 2018 I have taken hundreds of photos and shot hours of video with it. I fly it almost every day.
