The Delightful Moment Ugandan Kids See A Drone Fly For The First Time

Here’s how excited the children are when they see a camera drone for the first time in their lives. It’s truly amazing to feel their excitement.

A Texas filmmaker, Brandon Smith, was in a small village in northern Uganda, filming with a nonprofit organization teaching children about hygiene and personal/community health, when he brought out his camera drone for the local kids.

The excited children immediately began screaming and running after the technological equipment that flew above them.

In the U.S., people are rather indifferent toward technology perhaps because they see so much of it every day. In Uganda, where the average family earns less than $800 per year, a gadget like a $300 drone is certainly a big deal.

“The headmaster of a school there asked me to give the kids a show with the drone. I launched the DJI Phantom 3 Professional and flew a short flight. The students loved it and kept asking for more once the drone landed” Smith states in the description of the video on YouTube.

He added he has become a “village celebrity” and that, “Though excited and curious, some of the children were also nervous as they had never seen or even heard of drones before.”
