I started model aviation as a hobby quite early, and drones at about 7 or 8. And it just kind of stuck wit me throughout my entire life. And now that the drone technology has been coming up, we were one of the first to start video piloting, which means you don’t fly by looking at the model. You fly specifically by looking at the video feed from the airplane. And we started that about 11 to 12 years ago. We’ve just been progressing and daring ourselves, improving our skills and our technology. Our goal was always to experience the world from a different point of view, like from a pilot seat but a view that would not be possible from an airplane.
