Drones are becoming a hot item with the potential to change many industries. Atlanta Hobby in Cumming plans to be on the forefront of the drone revolution. The company sells remote controlled helicopters with a camera attached. Cliff Whitney, president, said, “[People] expect some big predator with cruise missiles hanging off of it. That’s not what we have here.”
The drones can be used in the photography industry, by farmers looking to locate where to add more fertilizer, and real estate agents needing to showcase their property better. CNN is even working with Georgia Tech to study how drones could be used safely and effectively by journalists.
