So, I got asked to appear on BBC Radio Essex to talk about how I started my YT channel, drones in general, video, photography and of course the Gatwick incident.
So I took the opportunity to put a positive perspective on things and talk about how great drones are!


So, a long video, but it was all good fun...
Cheers
Ian

I had a message I wanted to convey, and made the BBC Presenter ask the right questions to get that message across.  
Thanks for the good words...

Very, very well done Ian - loved the way you led the interviewer towards the Gatwick incident and got the right message across and I'm really pleased that the BBC were prepared to hear those facts and create an open platform for you in a live setting without any agenda. We need more of this mate!

Thanks everyone for the good words... I was very pleased how it went and that I could get the good points across....  And that I didn't swear live on air

I really thought you'd have a Paxman type interviewer that would steer your thoughts and tongue tie you into giving drones a bad name - so pleased to see how the interview remained open and how they let you simply express yourself and the positives of owning drones and how much hysteria is being unfairly thrown around about them.

I have family members and friends who have questioned me on why I fly - I simply say why do you take photos with your phone and have an Instagram account - wouldn't it be cool if you could put your phone 400' in the air and see the world around you and take photos from that view point - drones are nothing more than flying cameras and are safer than cars. They tend to shut up after that.

Great interview Ian!

You were a natural and your co-host was fantastic too!

I'd seen some of your videos even before I bought my Mavic 2 Pro in January and enjoyed them immensely.

Thanks very much for your time & effort...much appreciated.
