John Rankin does a final check to make sure his drone is ready for takeoff.

A drone was flying over Prince George's Cottonwood Island Park yesterday. It was demonstration of how the unmanned aircrafts can be used for mapping. John Rankin is the president of Prince George's JR Canadian mapping. They developed their own drones in-house using a combination of high-impact styrofoam, duct tape, and thousands of dollars worth of technical equipment.
