@andyputch - would love to hear about the development process and story for FreeSkies :)

@bentossell Thanks for the access! At FreeSkies, our vision is to make aerial data collection simple and accessible to everyone. In essence, we aim to democratize drones. We believe that drones are incredibly powerful tools but they are faced with a multitude of problems that for the most part are not technological in nature, they’re human. It’s about the simplicity and the user experience. The CoPilot mobile app leverages 3D maps for extremely simple and intuitive path planning. By connecting it to our web portal, users can manage and easily share their content while also gaining access to more complex path planning and post processing tools (still in development). In the FreeSkies ecosystem, users can join a services marketplace, find project management tools, and CRM, allowing us to provide the best user experience from planning to processing to delivery.

I personally dont have a drone. Part of the reason is that I would need to learn a lot skills just to use it. I have seen professional photographers and friends make incredible videos using drones. The process always intimidated me and the end product always impressed me. Maybe this will let people focus on the creativity and fun of drones without needing to learn so many skills all at once.
