Sports documentation and photography
Sports that involve racing or anything related to speed may require a little more technology to document. This is where our good old drone technology comes in.

Of course, not all hunting is permitted and approved, especially in highly protected areas. Because of this, drones can also be used to protect hunted species from being hunted. Drones can standby and stay guard to alert officials if there are illegal hunters in the land.
Aside from all the business and leisure that drones can bring, it can bring much more advancement in the fields of science and technology too.
Drones can be used for research by scientists and specialists who endeavor to research about new discoveries and more. With the help of drones, researchers have a wider scope of perspective in looking into the environment and much more.
