Known on interviews as Bray-Bray Woo-woo, a Canadian based pilot who never leaves his drone behind when he travels. All the way from British Columbia Canada Brayden Hall joining us on The Drone Dish. Brayden, thanks for coming on the show. Brayden Hall: Hey, how's it going? Tyler Mason: It's going well. We are glad to have you here. I want to start out talking about your travels. It looks like you've been to some really interesting places. Tell me a little bit about your travels and where you've been with them. Brayden Hall: Well, a lot of my travels [00:00:30] I've been mostly around the Americas. But I did about eight months in South America across two trips. So I guess six months the first time, and then two months the second time because I love it so much. It's just an amazing trip. Tyler Mason: I know for part of your travels you bring your drone with you. What do you enjoy about that, and what kind of drone are you flying these days? Brayden Hall: So, when I was traveling ... That was this summer basically. I traveled with my drone and I brought my Phantom 3 Pro. Basically I traveled through Columbia, Ecuador and Panama. It was amazing. [00:01:00] Like, I saw things that I didn't think I would because I had my drone. I was able to just get insane shots that I had never seen before in these countries. So, it was really cool. Tyler Mason: Did you have any troubles traveling with the drone in any countries, or kind of learning the regulations as you went along in different places? Brayden Hall: Honestly, not one. I was in the airport once in Panama and they were like, "Un drone?" I was like, "Si." That was basically the extent of any questions of it. So, it was pretty easy. The biggest thing I worried about was people [00:01:30] almost just tossing it up on jeeps. But besides that, that was it. So it was pretty easy. Tyler Mason: Nice. Well we see a lot of drone videos of beaches and tropical locations. But you're based in Canada and you like to showcase, really, your backyard just near Vancouver. What do you enjoy most about getting to show people where you live? Brayden Hall: A lot of people who live here don't actually go outside. I love just showing them that it's so close, right. Like, you can drive literally 45 minutes from Vancouver and be in the mountains and have insane [00:02:00] mountain top views, forests, everything you want. So, I just kind of want to inspire people who live here to actually get outside and see what we have in our backyard. Tyler Mason: What are the drone regulations like in Canada? Brayden Hall: They're okay. It's basically the usual. Don't go near airports, no national parks. Watch out for our smaller airways, like, C-planes and such. But most of the time it's easy to just avoid those. So Vancouver is a big no fly zone. So it's the areas around [00:02:30] Vancouver that you can fly in. Tyler Mason: I know you do some professional drone work as well. How does what you do for that differ from some of the cool stuff that you do on your travels? Brayden Hall: So, basically the only difference is some of it I do is, like, real estate work. But, besides that I shoot for tourism companies as well. So, it sometimes doesn't really differ at all. Other times it'll be, like, totally different. Like a house, right. But besides that it's not too different. Tyler Mason: One of your latest [00:03:00] uploads to Air Views was of a trip to Oregon you took. You had the shot of the airplane in the trees there. I believe it's a house, actually. What was it about that shot that you liked, and what was it like seeing that once you get up above the trees there? Brayden Hall: Well, I like ... Basically I didn't really know where the plane was. I had an idea and I found some coordinates to the area it was in. But I had no idea where this thing was. So I sent up ... I had my Mavic at the time. So I sent up my Mavic, I was looking around and finally on view on the screen I could see the big wing coming up from behind a tree. [00:03:30] It was just sweet. I was like, "I found it man." Like, just coming into the field of view it was awesome. It was totally awesome. Tyler Mason: Very cool. You mentioned the Mavic too. That's got to make traveling with a drone a little bit easier these days. Brayden Hall: Amazing. Like, I don't even [inaudible 00:03:43] the Phantom anymore. I've lugged that thing up too many mountains to be ... To have too windy, or have it start snowing, or have it start raining. With the Mavic I just kind of stick it in the pocket and if it rains I don't fly. I didn't lug up a big flying drone. Tyler Mason: Well, [00:04:00] do you have any idea where your travels are going to be taking you next? Brayden Hall: Yeah. Next. Basically I'm focusing on a lot of road trips. So, I think the biggest one that I'm doing next is Vancouver up through the Rocky Mountains and the Banff area of Alberta. Then straight up Northern British Columbia and into Alaska. Tyler Mason: Very cool. You're going to bring the drone with I'm assuming? Brayden Hall: Of course. I might bring both. Tyler Mason: There you go. Well, Brayden we can't wait to see the footage from that trip and we appreciate you joining us on The Drone Dish today. Brayden Hall: Hey, no problem. [00:04:30] It was a great time.
