    Watermelo crop, what to do?

    Thanks for your response. Fortunately we managed to give a good response. Thank god we have agricultural knowledge but did not on the commercial part regarding drones+agriculture and how to convince someone our product is good with a 30 minutes visit. We had to give general suggestions regarding non-uniformity and its probable relation to irrigation differences among sectors. Let's wait for his response. We finally managed to contact two technicians with deep knowledge on crops and watermelon so our response cannot be bad. Cheers

    Glad to have found this group and UAVcoach.com . We are a startup in the wireless tower commercial maintenance, installations, upgrades etc. I am particularly interested in commercial aspects of drone usage. I am working on my FAA license now. Planning to purchase a PRO rig with 4K cam. If you have any ratings on rigs, recommendations, or positive opinions that you think would help me, let me know. THANKS !
  7. Taking on an enterprise contract is not just "a gig", it demands a professional approach to risk analysis through every stage of the mission. In the following article, I share insights from SkyWatch.AI 's data and my experience in risk analysis, aviation safety, and mission management. https://skyward.io/flying-for-enterprises-drone-insurance-risk-analysis-for-contractors/ Thanks to Skyward.io for hosting the article on their blog.

    Hey, I know it's not a 100% proper forum for it, but there are lots of IT guys here. So, if i'm creating a music stream app like spotify and others, what challengers, except from legal, i'm gonna face?
  9. Good chatting with you on the phone, Josh. Will shop this around with some folks...

    Watermelo crop, what to do?

    I'm guessing its not so much of a trap but more of a test. He's probably trying to figure out if you know how to interpret the data your looking at. If you can't there's no real value to the data you collected. If you can give him some advice on how he could improve his crop from what you have then he might hire you to collect more data. The challenge is how do you make data collected by a drone actionable. If you don't know anything about farming you probably can't.

    Time to test!

    Set my date for Monday at 3:30 in Mesquite, TX. Excited and ready, thanks to Drone Pilot Ground School. I have to get A or my wife won’t let me come home...she sets high standards.

    Watermelo crop, what to do?

    Hi, folks, We are trying to make a new client. This is a watermelon crop and we have got NDVI images from a small portion of terrain. The greener portion in the middle is due to weed and the client asks "convince me, from that photo what would you recommend for our crop?" Any hints? I know it would be a bit crazy to give advice on a crop we have just visited 30 minutes from aerial images. So his question may be well a trap. In such a situation we don't really know if it is really a trap or if he is trying to know what would we do next once we have this image. What would you do? Thanks in advance, Jose
  18. Thanks. My solution was to check YouTube. What worked on the third try:
  19. I get the same problem out of the Inspire occasionally. My workaround is to shut everything down including iPad. Start the RC first. Start the aircraft and wait until it is fully turned on. Then start the iPad and load the GO app. It might take a few times of repeating the process. Hope this helps.

    Hi All, New from the Corpus Christi area.

    Hi All, Passed my exam and wanted to introduce myself. My name is David Miller, Ascend Aerial Photography, I live in Aransas Pass, Tx just outside of the Corpus Christi, TX area. I needed a career change so I decided to start a business using drones since I have been a long time enthusiast of anything RC really. Might as well work and have fun at the same time. I just started this business and I am getting my portfolio going so if anyone has any good tips getting into the real estate market I sure would appreciate it.
  21. Hey guys! My name is Josh and live in the L.A/ Santa Monica area. I just bought a mavic air and have already taken it on a handful of trips... im getting pretty good with quickshots and am OK at flying manually but am looking to improve / hone my skills. Would love to meet other pilots in the area. I would also be up for taking some private 1 on 1 lessons with a fellow experienced pilot who has experience with the mavic air and can help me be the ninja of the skies that i know i am destined to be ! Please feel free to DM me

    ...@Alan....Thank you for finding the time to respond to this topic, your opinion matters. For the record and what it's worth, I think you have the finest program in the Country and have set the bar for excellence in your school's curriculum, organization, support and follow up....However, I was surprised and then again not, at your response.... ...Your business model as I see it has been to provide the best learning experience and successful acquisition of FAA Certification for your clients....but it pretty much has to end there because you or anyone for that matter cannot be responsible for the clients outside education, motivation, focus, buisness acumen or lack thereof....it's up to each pilot to see to the success of their business so your reponse is the most logical ....but.... ....There are numerous National Associations that help if not completely control the dialogue in several of the nations most important industries....perhaps at this moment in time we need not pay attention to the chaos that abounds in the types of services that are being touted out there with the variety of outrageously low rates connected to them as well as the lack of education the potential client has in order to make an informed decision re their aerial needs....for example, they need to learn that their 12 year old grand child with their Toys R Us or Hobby Lobby equipment can't do what we are trained to.... ....Maybe over the next several months the industry will shake loose those rogues or starts ups that are trying to turn a hobby into a real business and don't have the first clue how to do it and maybe the FAA will start to enforce the regs in order to help preserve the integrity of the industry itself but I will go out on a limb and declare that when future pilots embrace the realization of just how the industry is like living in the wild west, making it up as they go, every person for themselves where only the strong survive and self reliance and tenacity is one's only option to success (which is life in general)....eventually that environment will flaten out new start ups, enrollments will go down....clients that would have considered out sourcing their needs will bite the bullit and bring the task in-house and eliminate the sub-contractors like us... ....Once again, I don't have the answers...but I believe the hand writting is on the wall....unity in numbers will help to control the flow of future business....at the end of the day if we don't have some kind of unity or industry standards we are not going to be taken seriously enough as an industry to be considered a necessary service to those companies that can actually benefit from said services....and the FAA cannot do it all for us.... ....I wish to take a moment to beg the indulgence of any who reads this post...it is not offered as a negative commentary to our fledging industry nor an adversarial position to those of a different opinion...it is offered under the category of "prudence and foresight" for it is not important whether one agrees or disagrees with its content....it's only important for one to undrstand... ...I have learned (sometimes painfully) over the years that change really is a constant....innovation and flexibility is a must and if one is not looking ahead....one doesn't know where they are going.....be cool and stay alert out there....

    Here I am In the future, use the @ symbol before my name and I'll get a more direct notification. I participate in the forum where I can but am laser-focused on hitting a few strategic initiatives so don't always have the time. To me, worrying about other pilots devaluing your services...that's not something you can control. No centralized national body or membership will change that. My advice would be to focus 110% on what you CAN control...building your own business and kicking ass while doing so. Some inspiration for you: https://uavcoach.com/drones-gis-mapping/ https://uavcoach.com/pricing-aerial-services/ https://uavcoach.com/movie-work-drones/ https://www.dronepilotgroundschool.com/jbr-life-photography/ https://www.dronepilotgroundschool.com/derrick-ward/ There's no silver bullet here. Just a lot of persistence and focusing on the right thing...getting high-quality clients that others can't compete for.

    How's business?

    ...A very telling post Cyclops 55! ....It's too bad Alan can't wade into this dialogue....With his connections, resources to include a sterling reputation in the industry, he could get the ear of those individuals that could sponsor a National Association of Certified Pilots (NACP) who's membership would agree to observe at least a minimum hourly rate for services rendered.... ....Even if only a minimum hourly rate was observed on a National basis, it would send a message to those industries that intend to out source their drone needs what to expect. There are general standard minimal rates for attorneys, doctors, plumbers, barbers even baby sitters....However, the reality of organizing Local Chapters of the "NACP", let alone investing in a National effort re same would be difficult at best.... not impossible...but possibly a monumental task.... ...Perhaps one day the majority of Certified Pilots will start an organization that can not only benefit all members but the industry itself....an organization that helps to enlighten and make potential clients get as comfortable as possible with services they are not familiar with....maybe raise a war chest for client educational subject matter... ....I don't have the answers, so I guess that's makes me part of the problem....I just know that this industry is in the embryonic stages of growth and we all share in it's parenthood, growing pains and all....but....If we don't take a hand in raising this child now, it will undoubtedly become unmanageable the older it gets.... ....Quite frankly, I'm somewhat disappointed..... I thought this subject would get allot of play and feedback from this membership of fellow pilots but apparently it's the elephant in the room....perhaps some feel it's not worth the time 'cause business is good and they need to stay focused there or others may feel if it's too hot in the kitchen, get out, competition is tough in any business....and still others may think there is nothing anybody can do about the rouge pilots that devalue our services and risk our reputation....and just maybe they're right....all I know is that after being in business for over 30 years, I'm getting a "red alert" in the back of my neck...I just don't think we can allow the "tail to wag the dog" for too much longer.....be cool and stay alert out there!....

    If the card is formatted as a fat32 it has a 4GB file size limit. I’m guesssing that might be what caused that.
