DJI Global was present at the Golden Globes last night in Hollywood, California, alongside the long list of famous Hollywood actors there with a chance to pickup some hardware.
It’s a sight that would be surprising, if not illegal, a short while ago, but appearances like this make it clear that drones are here to stay and certainly in Hollywood. Now, thanks to FAA exemptions for businesses, many of which listed on Hireuavpro.com, such as Aerial Mob, and Pictorvision.
