I was in northwestern Uganda filming with a non-profit IMOutreach.org that was teaching about hygiene and personal/community health. The headmaster of a school there asked me to give the kids a show with the drone. I launched the DJI Phantom 3 Professional and flew a short flight. The students loved it and kept asking for more once the drone landed. Though excited and curious, some of the children were also nervous as they had never seen or even heard of drones before. I quickly became a village celebrity; the locals would even make buzzing drone-like noises whenever walking past me on the streets!

  1. at first i thought this was gonna be some douche impressing african kids because he can't impress anyone else, mainly because it's a drone and drone's are just so overhyped. Then I read the description and that's pretty cool

  2. Sorry!!!! This is not South Africa!!!
    1. Every South African School has a uniform.
    2. Not all South Africans are actually dark skinned!
    3. Drones, hover boards e.t.c are all over South Africa!
