My husband bought a drone of the brand DJI for christmas and initially I thought it was a waste of money but just a few days later I completely changed my mind.

The drone my husband had bought was the DJI Phantom 3 Professional which is the latest drone from DJI and the most feature rich drone out of the DJI Phantom 3 line.

So what made me change my mind? Well as of most of my readers know my husband is programmer and he made some changes to the DJI Phantom 3 software which enabled him to remove the 500 meter altitude limit and bring back the waypoint flying feature.

My husband also added a cargo basket to the bottom of his drone. So what did my husband do with these programming edits and the cargo basket?

My husband could now program the drone to fly a route safe from our home to our local Indian restaurant which does not offer delivery but take out service.

We now order via phone and once the food is done we get a call from the restaurant to send the drone and once the drone arrives at their location they load the cargo basket with our food and the drone fly the food back home via the programmed waypoints which we have deemed as a safe route to the drone and our surrounding community.

Lazy and stupid some might say but to me this was brilliant!

And what I wanted to communicate with this article is that the use of drones could possibly be a big positive addition to ambulance and fire department to for example asses emergency’s that might be hard to access or that they do not want to access until they know what they have to expect.
