# What’s in a Name? Everything! #   I named my drone "Vigilante."  As a company based out of Montana, USA the vigilantes have a special meaning.  In the days when the area was wild and lacked law enforcement, the citizens took the law into their own hands when they saw something was wrong and no one was addressing it.  We try to use our drones in areas where people need help but are not getting the support they need.

In addition to the work "Vigilante" and his fellow drones do for my company we use our drones for Search & Rescue Operations at no cost to the community.  See this month's issue of RotorDrone magazine for an article I wrote on drones and Search and Rescue operations.

Additionally, we just started a nonprofit company (Vigilante Cares) to help military veterans with PTSD.  We use the flying of drones to give a therapeutic break to PTSD suffers.  See our Twitter for more information @VigilanteDrones

# What’s in a Name? Everything! #

I chose the name Ronin because of what this word means and what it means to me. Some will think that I may have named my Mavic 2 Pro after DJI's gimbal setup but no. Rather I picked this name because throughout my life I have felt like one without a master. And so I use my Mavic 2 Pro in much then same way and with the same outlook, no master, no boundaries. Create, explore and live.

I like the name!  During one of my tours of war in Iraq, my unit's call sign was Ronin.  We were a small 11 man unit sent two hours from friendly forces to train the Iraqi army.  We felt very much like the masterless samurai.  

Thanks for sharing!

I don't have names for the Spark or the Mavic Air... until now. I hereby dub the Mavic Air "The Winner". It's a great little drone and is perfect for entering contests for free swag and points (Thanks Grace for your great contests). That doesn't mean that the Spark is the loser. It's still a great drone. So I'll call him "Runner Up"

It's a shame we can't rename the drones. Bought mine 2nd hand and I'm stuck with "M1"
Now I must create a fictional heartwarming story around "M1" to enter the contest...

Name - Phoenix (Mavic 2)

The name might be pretty obvious, The phoenix bird (Mythology) obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. But the story of the name is somewhat dramatic, I don't have my Phoenix with me; it's dead because it dropped from the sky while I am flying. I was looking at it when it crashed into the water. I quickly contacted DJI and they where very quick to analyse the drone logs and letting me know its a case of warranty. So I named it Phoenix and hoping to get it delivered soon (born again from fire) #thanksdjisupport #Phoenixwillriseagain

Mine is named Charissa Mavic.
Because, I am Charissa, and this is my Mavic.I leave the storytelling for the drone videos and images I capture with it.

Charissa Mavic has captured mountains, dunes and deserts, urban spreads, and people in Africa. That is it,s story.

# What’s in a Name? Everything! #
mine is named DRONY (probably very original !!!)

This is my children who called my drones like that.
My Daughter, 6 old, know the real name of each drone I had (Phantom, Mavic,  Sparky... -yes drony is the name of my main drone and when I have a smaller drone, like the spark, there is an other name...)

Sorry to hear the bad new of your drone.  "Phoenix" is really a figurative name. Hope your drone can be restored well and fly again like a phoenix.

Well I name my Tello Drefily. As it sounds like 'dream+fly+freely'. It represent my dream to fly a drone freely. Well tello was my first drone, as a 15 years old teenager I always wanted to have a drone. One day I saw a review about Tello on youtube and I said "this is it" Have been flying it for about 3 month. Sadly, I crashed it on a 3 story building rooftop and unable to get it back, I asked my friend that have a spark to search for it on the 2nd day, but found that it was missing. Maybe the wind blown it down and someone took it. Luckily, my parent allow me to buy a new one after final exam, Im planning to buy a spark on November. Hmm... so what should I name the spark?

Nice name and all the best for your final exam Jacksonnai..

Hope you get your Spark soon..

Believe it or Not: I asked my 7 year old nephew, which drone he likes the most/he thinks is the best: he said DJI Spreading Wings S1000

only then I realized he researches more DJI drone than I do

OK, let's have fun here!

My flagship Matrice 200 is named Da Rhino, because ... well, she looks and behave like a rhino. Second in line Inspire 2 is named Da Manta, again because with arms raising she looks like this mean insect ready to strike. My now mostly retired but still venerable Inspire 1 Pro was christened The Mothership because at this moment she truly was to my both Phantoms (3 Pro & 4 Pro+), named Snowflake 1 and Snowflake 2 respectively. Nothing really fascinating about these stories, as my life of lone geek is dull and pointless ... Just kiddin' ...

Thinking about what to call this blue spark, the name "Sylvester" came to mind. Only later did I realize that "Sylvester Thedrone" sounded like a famous Sylvester. I don't name everything I own, just things with enough character to earn a name. Like an old car I had a few years ago was "Sophira."

# What’s in a Name? Everything! #
My drone’s name: Donaldo

I named my Mavic Pro "Dronaldo" because I love Soccer and it is a pretty nice combination between my top two hobbies Soccer and Drones.  (Ronaldo is the name of one of the greatest soccer player of all times,  Ronaldo Nazario,  it is also the name of Cristiano Ronaldo, a famous one now).

but it is even funnier that the one who came up with the name was my 7 years old daughter,  once I was cleaning my drone she saw my so happy doing that that she just said. "You should be called Dronaldo!!

and then I put that name to the Drone.  .

I wish there was some huge, dramatic, mythical story behind the origins of the notorious "Dirty Bird" persona & quadcopter.


Alas, it all came down to a Super Bowl spot from years gone by.


(Note: In the original version of the spot, "Sky Rat" was " Poop Chute ".  I guess " Poop Chute " was too risque for TV?)


Now you know the story behind the names of my first TWO DJI Drones!


(So does this count as two entries?)  




Now you know!

My Mavic Air is called Pingu after the penguin- needless to say I have the black and white one although it is now orange for SAR. The Phantom 4 is called Igloo as its Pingu's big brother and is white so i call it Igloo! Sadly Igloo recently had a crash!

What's in a name?
My drone is 'Montfrooij', that is my last name
It consists of 2 (French) words : Mont (mountain) and froid (cold).
So in essence it means 'cold mountain' and I am proud of being one of the 'Montfrooij's' that migrated from France to NL as part of the 'Hugenoten' that fled from France around the 16th century.

# What’s in a Name? Everything! #


Hello to all

today I finally activated my beautiful MAVIC AIR

I must admit I am extremely happy to have this gem too

his name is SanDrOne

I chose this name because now I live, use and fly in Italy

"San" in Italy and especially in Rome is used for the Saints
the word "Drone" obviously does not need explanation

but all together? "Sandrone" ... is my nickname ...
In fact, my name is Alessandro in English Alex ...
but around here ... Sandro is used ... and for me I've always been a little "big"
SandrONE is used ... (in Italian "one" final ... it's like in English "er")

and so even my Mavic Air ... is small but extremely BIG on the AIR
I chose to call it SanDrOne

... I like it a lot ... and I hope it's as lucky as I was

thanks to all the guys in the forum

thank you, Grace
