    I don't own a drone, I have a quadcopter.

    I have a P3A Grab 'n Go setup that travels with me all the time. Anytime I see a scene that looks good, I'm there.....

    I fly an Inspire for my work which is fire department. It gives an aerial view of the emergency scene to the incident commander. At home I have a Phantom that I fly to maintain proficiency.

    Drone roof inspections right now, hoping to do real estate soon. Also taking 500 megapixel or more pictures by stitching hundreds of pictures together to make incredible panoramas, etc...

    For aerial photography/filmography - recording nice views to help creating some lame music clips afterwards. Not really commercial, as I personally don't get any money, so you can call it a hobby/doing things for fun.
