Tony Northrup uploaded a video in July 2018 which discussed his thoughts on drones and why he thought you probably shouldn't buy one. This video was met with a lot of criticism from many people especially from those who had already bought a drone. In a recent video however, Northrup seems to be changing his tune.
How is it possible that someone such as Northrup could offer such ridiculous advice about drones while owning a bunch himself? I mean sure he's probably built up a great deal of experience with them and come across many of the issues around filming with a drone. Also he didn't exactly say that no one should ever buy a drone and simply wanted to point out some of the drawbacks so people are aware of what they're getting into; which is actually really useful and good to know, but even still, how could he? Fortunately, Northrup has clearly found sense as of late and decided to reconsider his position on drones. The question that remains is if Northrup so easily flip flops on his points, then how can we ever trust him again? I mean does he even know what he's talking about?
Yes, the answer is "yes" because what's relevant today may not be relevant tomorrow. It's brilliant that laws are changing and drones are becoming cheaper and more effective, so it might actually be a good idea to add a drone to your ever growing list of equipment.
Check out the full video linked above and watch as Northrup tries to dig himself out of this one.
