How often do you guys encounter people telling you, "That's nice but you could get way better photos if.../You could fly without wind if.../Have you tried out this expensive piece of drone technology yet? It's $3500 but totally works!"? Seems like every time I go flying or share some photos around, people immediately wonder why I'm not buzzing a drone around or dropping loads of money on GPS controlled UAVs.
Even after they see some of my photos (http://www.flickr.com/photos/nasion/10338967155
for example), they seem to think that any sort of drone with a GoPro stuck onto it could do way better. I know I'm not an expert or anything, but jeez, some days it feels like the only people who appreciate my results before drone fever takes hold are folks on this forum and the KAP flickr page.
Any tips on deflecting drone conversation so people actually focus on the fact that you're flying a kite instead?
