With the rampant paranoia and constant negative press drones (also known as UAV’s by many who prefer that name), I feel it is good to try and pump out some positive information about drones. Contrary to the uninformed people crying wolf, drones can do, will do, and ARE doing many great things across all sorts of industries. My goal with the new category DRONES FOR GOOD is to highlight, once every week or two, a story or way that a drone is doing good.
As of this writing I know of several fantastic applications drones are being used for, much more than the standard aerial photography and aerial video. Drones are being used for mapping, agricultural needs, real estate, research, delivery of products, search and rescue, firefighting, law enforcement, wildlife preservation, and more.
Despite all these great applications and huge possibilities in the business world, the few morons who fly too close to airports, impede fire and rescue, or fly over their neighbor’s back yard without the neighbor’s permission are getting the bulk of the attention.
Ironically many of the same news outlets that are fueling the drone paranoia fire are using drones to deliver their product in more interesting ways.

Welcome to the new topic here. What ways can you think of which drones are doing good?
