The History of Drones
Drones are currently one of the most useful and cinematic tools available to filmmakers around the globe. With brands such as DJI and GoPro mass producing such products, amateur and professionals alike can capture truly stunning aerial footage. But where did it all start? As a species, Humans are fascinated with flight, and always have been. In regard to the origins of flight, I’m sure we all know of Leonardo Da Vinci’s original sketch of a ‘helicopter’, and how he imagined flight would work.
Pictured to the left, Da Vinci imagined 3-4 people standing inside the inner structure of the object pushing the object around its axis. The generated force would cause the screw like head to generate lift. Although this concept has now been disproven, the very concept at such an early stage is fascinating. However, many believe that there is earlier recording of flight within the history of ancient Egypt. With no physical evidence, the only recordings are through a series of hieroglyphs; pictured to the right. Many people have pointed out the likeness of the paintings to modern methods of flight.
