One of the newest tools we'll be using this severe weather season is Drone 6.

Alan Crone went to Broken Arrow's Tiger Field with SkyNews6 HD Pilot Will Kavanagh to try it out.

"Right now this is just a great tool we have for news gathering as well as post-storm coverage.  It gives us a unique perspective like no other tool we have right now," said Kavanagh.

Will is used to flying Osage SkyNews6 HD, which is a Bell Jet Ranger, as well as Sikorsky Black Hawks for the Oklahoma Army National Guard. He took to Drone 6 quickly.

"As we fly it around here at Tiger Field, you can see that it just has wide-angle view giving us, again, a perspective that no other tool we have in our arsenal right now, like a ground crew or SkyNews 6 with that wide-angled camera allows us to get up close to our post-storm coverage or any breaking news we might be out on.  And again, just give us that unique perspective," Kavanagh said.

Scientists and researchers at some of the state's largest universities have been using drones this past year.  They're trying to unlock the secrets of  the atmosphere to learn more about tornadoes and severe storms to help keep your and your family safe.

We'll be using Drone 6 to show you Oklahoma's weather like you've never seen it before.
