How You Can Use Drones In A TEOTWAWKI Scenario

How You Can Use Drones In A TEOTWAWKI Scenario

Drones have been widely available on the market lately and they come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and colors. Many people look at drones and see an over-the-top expensive toy. I, on the other hand, as a prepper, see opportunity. And with good reason. Drones are remote-controlled gadgets, with enough battery autonomy that have cameras attached. No special skills are required to handle your very own drone and you can even pair with your smartphone. You can use drones in a TEOTWAWKI scenario to gather intelligence in your surroundings without being physically present in a possibly hostile territory. Reconnaissance missions will no longer require special preparations, other than that of flying a drone that has a camera attached. The cameras can take high quality pictures and even videos with sound. If you’re smart phone allows it, it can even emit in real time. Many drones have a built-in GPS software that helps them return safely to their launch point, in case radio contact is lost. However, in a survival scenario, the GPS service might not be available, so keep that in mind before taking off.

What You Need To Know About Drones

First and foremost they are battery operated. So if you plan on using the drones even when everything falls to bits, you’ll need to ensure you have a recharging station, based on fuel, or even better, solar panels. They are computer and smartphone friendly, which means they have USB ports that allows you to connect your drone to your computer, for easy access and settings; you can even follow the flight path in real time from your smartphone and even adjust camera angles. The flight speed varies from model to model. The average drone flies at about 25 mph, but the more expensive model can reach staggering speeds of even 80 mph. Autonomy and control distance is also variables from one model to the next, but an average fully charged battery gets depleted in about 10 – 30 minutes. There are also gas-powered drones available on the market, their autonomy is superior to the battery operated ones, but they’re also more expensive. A drone can serve many purposes in SHTF situation: scouting and surveillance flights, scouting for wild game and even delivering messages from A to B. On the downside, drones are very visible and can attract unwanted attention. They can be taken down easily or even worse, followed to give away your location. So you’ll need a bit of practice before using it in a critical situation and A LOT of caution.

Some Of The Best Drones That You Can Buy

The Dromida Ominus FPV is one of the cheapest drones on the market, which is perfect for flight practice. The camera quality is rather good and it has great connectivity to your mobile device. It’s easy to use, has decent autonomy and it can be very fun to fly. For those of you that are looking for a device to get you started in the drone area, look no further. The Dromida Ominus FPV is a resilient little gadget, comes in many colors you can choose from (blue, green red, yellow), is both iOS and Andriod compatible (so you won’t have to change your phone) and costs only $150. If you’re interested in purchasing it, go here.

The Parrot Bebop drone is possibly the most renowned of the Parrot company and it is a semi-pro drone, meaning it’s considered to sit in between toys and professional drones. The drone itself is very lite and incredibly maneuverable, making it easy to fly even in closed spaces or indoors. It supports smartphone and tablet connectivity and it comes with two batteries. The battery, if fully charged, should last about 10 – 15 minutes of continuous flight. The onboard camera is decent; it has a resolution of 1080p. The base model comes at about $450, but if you’re willing to spend more you can get the model with the range extension, that will allow it to fly further. For more details, go here.

The Yuneec Q500 4K is drone whose popularity is growing steadily amongst the drone enthusiasts thanks to its camera quality. The built-in camera has a 4K resolution (4000p), meaning the image quality it offers for both pictures and video is unbeatable. It comes with two batteries and the camera is removable. There’s also a version that comes with a 1080p camera, but the $k version is of course far superior. The controller has an android built into it, so you don’t necessarily have to use your phone or tablet for maneuvering the drone. The model doesn’t have many gadgets and accessories available yet, but it won’t be long before Yuneec releases a bunch, considering how fast this little drone is gaining in popularity.

Getting your very own drone is nowhere near a bad idea. Flying one can be really fun and addictive, so if you’re lacking a serious hobby, drone flying could just fill that void. Enjoy it and practice, you’ll never know when your drone piloting skills will save your neck in a SHTF scenario.

Prepare For What Is Coming: “There Is A Very Present Danger That Is Facing Every American”

A warning from Charlie McGrath, founder of Wide Awake News:

You are under assault. There is a very present danger that is facing every American citizen who listens to me right now. Every citizen of this planet who listens to me right now. You are under attack.

This is an assault on you, the American people. This is an assault on your intelligence and an assault on your freedom.

It’s about a complete and total dismantling of a nation, a dismantling of a Constitution, and an implementation of control from on high, [from a] dominant financial authority overtaking this planet.

It’s not coincidence that Department of Homeland Security and the government in general is picking up all kinds of riot gear.

It’s because they know the collapse is coming.

They know the engineered collapse that has been papered over and caused 100 million people to be on the government dole, that has caused trillions of dollars of our future wealth being given to a bunch of bankers.

They know the day of reckoning is coming, and when it does they want 30,000 drones in the air, they want thousands of riot-ready police force on the street, and they want you bickering with your neighbor because you voted Romney, or you voted Obama.

Get it through your head, folks. If you don’t understand it by now – time is running out rapidly. You need to understand. There is no change coming with Romney. There is no change coming in term two with Obama.

They dance to the tune of the same people who have not been prosecuted or brought to justice for destroying this planet’s economy.

There are people dying tonight because of what has happened to this economy on this planet.

(Sourced via SGT Report ; David Icke)

Mass electronic surveillance systems, tens of thousands of drones, riot police, the training of military assets for domestic policing, and the introduction of legislation and executive orders to  respond to widespread national emergencies through martial law declarations are all pointing to the same thing.

Elements within the government of the United States and the cabals that have been engineering this move towards global governance are keenly aware that the system as it exists today is under extreme strain, and the day of reckoning is coming.

Prepare for it, because it will be like nothing we’ve ever experienced in our lifetimes. As our existing paradigm continues to shift we must understand that it will be plagued with starvation, mass rioting and bloodshed.

As Charlie McGrath notes, there are wars being fought all over the globe right now – and scores of men, women and children are dying daily. Millions of protesters have taken to the streets in recent months on every corner of earth as the world they have come to know collapses around them. Tens of millions of Americans are, like their counterparts in Europe and Asia, struggling just to put food on the table.

If the evidence that is right before your eyes doesn’t convince you that a mass destabilization is taking place in real time, then we don’t know what will.

The government is and has been preparing. So should you.

Time is running out.
