If you’re an NFL fan, you couldn’t have missed the FPV drone tours that Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins recently took us on, showing off their state-of-the-art practice facilities. Well, the social media team at PGA Tour HQ saw those videos and said: Hold my beer.
And boy, did they deliver! A drone fly-through video released Sunday gives a
bird hawk’s-eye view of the East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, with the machine swooping in and out of all the action happening at the season-ending Tour Championship.
We’re talking entering through the front door, zig-zagging through plush rooms, buzzing up the stairs, navigating tight corridors leading up to the locker room, exiting through a window and back in to interrupt an interview, and finally speeding up to take us to a finale that you wouldn’t believe until you see it.
Take a look, and tell us if that’s some skilled drone flying or what:
Drone fly-throughs are here to stay
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it now, drone fly-throughs are fast becoming a big business. An FPV drone flight can highlight several aspects of a business or a commercial property, especially those that are visually interesting. We’ve seen well-planned flights take us through sprawling car showrooms, provide an intimate peek into a housing complex, and even allow us to be a part of a wedding – all while being a clever piece of marketing.
An immersive experience is key here. People like watching first-person-view videos. And if these videos are produced well, viewers end up taking in the message without really realizing they’re being exposed to the offerings of a commercial operation. In their mind, they’re simply watching a great flight that helps to tell the story of a business: the business of sports.
