Weekly Drills Weekly Drills 040 - #Drone by Andrew McDonald 19 days ago 3 min read This week we want you to create a project that includes a consumer drone, then simply tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #drone.Drones are everywhere these days and it's hard not to get sucked into the fun. They have to be one of the coolest innovations in decades. They have come so far recently and can't wait to see what the possibilities hold. For this week's challenge, you are tasked with picking an existing consumer drone product and creating it in 2D or 3D. You could go for a Mini Pocket Drone, something from the popular Mavic range, or maybe push yourself and create a specialised high-end drone for photography and surveillance.To get some feedback on your work-in-progress project before you submit it, head over to Discord channel and chat with other artists having a crack.
