You may not know the Pigeon Vision team yet, but you’ll get acquainted quickly. The series features four main personalities: Roger, drone technician and “eccentric gamer;” Ryan (Haake), co-owner and adrenaline junkie; Dani, drone pilot and adventurer; and Darren, marketing guru and “closer.”
While this group may not consist of the most well known names in the industry, Haake theorizes that the natural, fun interaction among the group is one of the show’s greatest attributes.
In addition to the core group, there will be a dynamic supporting cast of industry leaders including AirVuz
(a partner of DRONED
), the International Drone Racing Association
, and FPV drone racers Skitzo, Matty Stuntz, Freybott, and StingerSwarm.
For those who may not recognize drone racers or UAS entrepreneurs, celebrities like Criss Angel, Tyler Perry, Jason Acuña, and former NFL player Ryan Hoag will also make appearances on the show.
An eye on the future
The goal of the show is, of course, to entertain viewers. But Haake and the rest of the Pigeon Vision team hope that fans of the show will learn along the way.
“We’re really shining a positive light on the drone community. [Drones are] regularly in the media, but it’s always portrayed in a negative manner,” says Haake. “Our show is just showcasing all the positive aspects of drones, what drones can do.”
The team also hopes to include more industry leaders from DJI and CTRL me
— and, of course, more celebrities. Even Martha Stuart’s name has been thrown around. Are you reading, Martha? There’s a drone with your name on it down in Florida.
