Recreational drones capture your party with a bird's eye view. You don't have to buy your own drone and learn to fly it. Party rental stores have begun to realize that renting drones for event use is big business. According to recent IBIS World market research, drones used in party rentals will grow steadily as business and consumers spend over $5 billion dollars annually on birthday and corporate bashes. Technology increases your options, which is why many of the nearly 10,000 party rental businesses nationwide have expanded to include drones in their repertoire.
What exactly is a drone? A drone is an unmanned aerial vehicle--and they aren't just for military applications anymore. Drone applications now include racing, sports, package delivery and photography. Drone usage is slated to rise nearly 25 percent by 2020 as consumers begin to use them to photograph personal events such as graduations, weddings, and other milestone parties. Many of the picture albums you see on social media will be downloaded photos taken by drones. Unless you apply for a drone license and purchase a recreational drone for personal use, you will likely rent one from your local party rental store.
What Features Can Drones Offer The Consumer?
Depending on the type of drone you select from your party rental merchant, your features are likely to include:
- Stable cameras with the option to stream live to make sure that you are getting the pictures that you want. You will be able to view what your drone sees along its journey. Some drones will allow you to adjust the flight path mid-air.
- Battery packs--no tethers--you can predetermine your flight path on many models.
- Portability, delivery and photo retrieval by the party store drone team can make your drone experience a non-stress event.
How Safe Is It?
Drones can reach speeds in excess of 50 miles per hour, even in windy or near gale force conditions, with its camera remaining stable. Flying into headwinds will reduce speeds and stability somewhat; but, some drone models can compensate for inclement weather conditions. The chances of your rented drone taking a nose-dive into your tent full of guests have dramatically reduced over the years as technology has made consumer drone flights safer--and intrinsically exciting.
The Wow Factor
Your guests will love watching your drone flying over your event. You may find that you have hobbyists or drone racers in your midst!
