It’s another very special Spring edition of WellesleyWeston Magazine: You can read my article (starting on page 68) about commercial and hobbyist drones coming to the ‘burbs, including Wellesley and Weston. Thanks very much to the editors for accepting my pitch.
The timing on this piece was good: When I started it back in the fall I was scrounging for people to interview, but then almost magically sources materialized as drone enthusiasts started sending me videos taken via their small flying machines. Among them, Andreas Harsch, who was flying his drone for fun at Kelly Field. Others have used drones in Wellesley for professional photography, including of real estate properties.
Beyond Wellesley, drone news seemed to pop up almost daily, such as when that drone crashed at the White House and when the FAA revealed its proposed unmanned aircraft system (UAS) or unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) rules.
Special thanks to Wellesley Media’s Nick Cosky, a photographer who took time to show me his Phantom drone up close as he flew it around Morses Pond and through the nearby trails. You can see more of Nick’s work here.
