Why You Need a Survival Drone

Do you remember the intrusive feeling when you first heard about these little spy drones? We didn’t have access yet so it seemed unfair and ugly. I remember stories out of the county where people were shooting these little drones down like skeets with their shotguns. That’s the power of the 2nd Amendment by the way.

Years later I think it’s time we talk about the possibilities of drones in our preparedness efforts. We have a tremendous resource at our disposal in these drones and it’s important that we don’t turn a blind eye out of fear.

I will tell you a story about my own personal fear of this new tech:

I remember pulling up to work and watching a group of about 10 people standing before a camera drone that was buzzing at eye level before them. They were standing in front of a collection of donor plaques and looking to take a picture of the people and the plaques. The drone buzzed on, looking them in the eyes. In the early light of the morning immediately thought about drones armed with low caliber machine guns rather than cameras executing lines of Americans in just the fashion I was watching. It is this fear that we must overcome before diving into new tech.

Surveillance

Understanding the conditions in your immediate area as well as the conditions beyond is incredibly important. If local news is no longer broadcasting you will have no other source for local events. Violent riots, damage to significant infrastructures or clogged roads could all be a mystery without some sort of surveillance and intelligence plan.

This may be one of the most underrated pieces of the preparedness puzzle and I think a drone can be a big player in this part of your plans.

Protection

Drones began in the military and there are ways for you to affix various weapons to drones as well. I have seen drones affixed with guns and other things on videos. In the future, we may be able to purchase our own protection drones.

I like the idea of a less than lethal deterrent drone. Imagine a drone that could carry smoke, pepper spray or even a taser. One of these deterrent drones could act to keep people far from your property. You wouldn’t have to worry about the weight of ammo weighing down the drone either.

Resource Cache

When we talk about survival caches its often a PVC pipe that is buried somewhere or hidden. Well, let’s thing about a resource cache that is in the air. You could land this cache on your own roof or other high spots that would be nearly impossible to find. Now the items in this resource cache would have to be light depending on your drone size.

The DJI Agras MG-1 has the ability to carry 20lbs for 24 mins. This could be a great candidate for a small weapon payload or nice resource cache.

Here are some other great items that could be carried by a drone.

  1. Small med kits
  2. Water filters
  3. Dry, ready to eat foods
  4. Data on thumb drives
  5. Lightweight shelter
  6. Fire starters
  7. A micro survival kit with a combination of the above
  8. A large drone could carry a small handgun

 

These are just three uses for survival drones. I am sure you can come up with more. Leave some in the comments and join us live Wednesday night 9 EST at www.prepperbroadcasting.com where we will be discussing survival drones.

 

I AM Liberty Show: Plant Based Diet and Unstoppable Forces

Recovering from the snow, recovering from a virus. I AM Liberty is back with plenty to talk about. Cabin Fever, reading about the brassica family and the benefits of a plant based diet. Eating a strip steak like an Alpha wolf.

Immigration, guns and technology the unstoppable forces. Lets get to it!

There is no denying that we are who we are today because of the magic of technology. In 65 years technological innovation has simply exploded. Every piece of equipment has been recreated and improved upon. Even some parts of our own bodies have been manipulated and fixed due to these incredible technologies. For that we must applaud those who have pushed hard to go beyond the human limits.

So what’s the inverse? Well, since technology is so very effective and efficient it’s no surprise that it’s EVERYWHERE. Many of us share a workspace with more electronics than people. This has had mental and physical effects on those who live that lifestyle. To me there is no reset more clear than getting away from screens and noise. Mountain tips help you realize that no matter how many pixels you have they can’t compete with a deep look at the milky way. Escaping into the woods allowing your body to fight for balance and your eyes to see great distance is necessary.

The idea that technology is our end is foolish. However, to follow it blindly could not only prove problematic but could completely change our species. So much about the human animal is communal. Do we see the end of that with things like virtual reality? How about to robotic prostheses that are better than actual arms or legs? Tonight I want to talk about the Techno Sapian or the human/technology balance. We all have to work hard to achieve a harmony between the advantages of technology and those things that make us human.

How does this relate to peppers? Are there peppers out there with bobs full of electro gadgets sure. Still, I wouldn’t venture into unknown woods without some sort of GPS. So what’s the answer. Balance. Let’s talk about what that means on the I AM Liberty Show.
