It’s been years since this Thanksgiving drone video came out. Autel’s drones have gotten much more sophisticated and can handle much more complex commercial tasks – but this 2016 video is still our absolute vacation treat. Try it out: cook a full Thanksgiving dinner – sauce and cake included – with a drone!
This video still makes me laugh – and everyone else who cooks Thanksgiving dinner the hard way for their families. In 2016, we asked the Thanksgiving Drones video creator for his comments.
“It was a lot of fun,” said Autels [former] Creative Director Dave Crosby told DRONELIFE. “… but we do not recommend doing this at home. It’s obviously something that could hurt someone. It’s also incredibly messy. We had carrots, parsley, and potato peels in every corner of the house. It took us hours to clean everything up. ”
“The video doesn’t do justice to the havoc it wreaked.”
Thanks for sacrificing your kitchen, guys. We’re still excited about the results! To all of our DRONELIFE friends celebrating Thanksgiving, we hope you find plenty to be thankful for. Here at DRONELIFE we are always grateful for you and the drone community everywhere.
