Seven Ways to Up Your Spring Break Social Media Game

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

Let’s be honest. No matter where you go on vacation, every possible photo op has been done to death. If you’re looking to set yourself apart from the crowd creatively, you’re going to need to include some new tactics into your repertoire. Here are seven ways to set your social media game on fire during your next vacation.

1.) Elevate your photography, literally.

One way to set your vacation photos apart from the crowd is to take to the skies with a drone.

DJI Takes Over the Sky with their Improved Fleet

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

Since 2006, DJI has been on the forefront of consumer and professional grade drones, producing unmanned aerial vehicles—more commonly refereed to as drones—which are designed to capture aerial content for all types of users. The entry level Phantom model has been designed to make flying easy, even for someone who has never flown anything before.

The Phantom comes ready to fly, meaning you can un-box the drone and in less than 10 minutes have your new toy up in the air. Be cautious though, because pilots will tell you the easy part of flying is getting in the air; the hard part is landing. But you can have peace of mind, thanks to the intelligent flight system that gives the Phantom stable hovering assistance, collision avoidance, and an auto landing feature. Flight times on the Phantom range around 25 minutes thanks to the impressive battery that is easily swapable so you can keep flying when one pack is empty. There is a lot of impressive technology crammed into this space age looking drone, and lets not forget to mention that the Phantom is capable of shooting 4K video at 60 fps.
