Idea: Control (and rent) Drones Remotely

When travelling to Iceland and Khao Yai national park in Thailand I noticed an emerging trend: people bringing drones with them on a trip.

Drones are not cheap. They start at 1k USD plus a good camera will run you another grand, at least.

What if there was a way to remotely control a drone, that is rented? For example, one could establish a company that has several physical drones deployed in interesting parts of the world – could be national parks, nature reserves, near volcanoes, etc.

Then, via a website one can book a time slot to fly a drone in any of those locations. The flying time may be limited to 15 mins max, for example. After downloading the remote control app,  I can remotely fly a drone miles away in a different continent – in the comfort of my own home. I would pay premium for the experience.
