  1. Good call! I emailed them yesterday and they already responded with a copy of my application. Steve, PM me and I can send it to you if you like?
  2. Woohoo! Despite the FAA throwing me a curve ball, I was just approved for night ops in class G. Sorry, Steve I know you asked for details on my application, but I don't have any of it. And as much as I'd like to reach out to the FAA and request my application be sent to me, Ill just count my blessings and be happy it was approved
  3. Thanks Steve, but unfortunately that is one of the requirements. I wonder if I could assign 2 different camera settings to the C1/C2 buttons under the controller??
  4. Yeah it's right into the sun, early morning. But I can't compensate too much for the exposure b/c on the other side of the track, the lighting is perfect! ahh, 1st world problems
  5. I'm doing a project with horses and it seems really hit or miss whether the footage from the P4P+ is useable. Attached is a still frame. It looks generally poor. It has a small bit of color correction, but regardless of how i correct it, the blacks are extremely black, with no discernible detail. I'm shooting at 3840x2160, AWB, MP4, NTSC, no "style", D-Log, H 2.64 encoding, AF/MF focus assistant is OFF. In addition, the footage generally seems too "sharp" (hope that makes sense). The only thing I can think of is that the subjects are in shadow because on the opposite side of the track, the footage looks good... Any suggestions?
  6. lol I guess slowing down a smirchy tad and adjusting the gimbal a smidget lower would help alleviate it. But sometimes ya just can't! In this case I was trying to keep up with a bald eagle. As you can imagine, he won the race. (still got some cool shots though). And yes Uaviator53, this is the Inspire 2 (no color corrections and cropped)
  7. Here's another shot that shows it worse.
  8. The P4P is notorious for the propellers getting in the shots at higher speeds. I THOUGHT this was eliminated by using a drone like the Inspire 2? I flew the Inspire 2 today (in sport mode at high speed) for the 3rd time and the propellers were constantly in the shot. Am I missing something here? I'd love to be educated if i'm simply flying it incorrectly...
  9. Precisely! It feels like a loaded question.Total software failure sounds like an inevitable crash.
  10. As luck would have it, today I finally heard back on my daylight operations waiver for class G. They need some more information, and quite frankly, I'm not sure how to respond. Any suggestions? From their email: Obviously, the software and controls tell us the pertinent information. But how in the world do I respond to the question about an integrated software failure??
  11. I wonder why some pilots get acknowledgement emails, others get approvals in no time, and some get no response at all? Just growing pains? I've submitted for 3 different waivers since January and haven't heard a peep.
  12. I've requested 3 waivers since January and haven't heard a peep!

  14. In case you haven't heard yet, Orlando passed some new drone legislation a few days ago. Putting my personal thoughts on the subject aside, I am now trying to figure out HOW to apply for these permits that the new law requires. Every single article as well as a PDF of the actual legislation that I've seen goes into great detail about everything except how to apply for these permits. So, for myself and anyone else in the Orlando area, has anyone had any luck determining how/where to apply for these permits?? http://www.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2017/01/24/orlando-passes-new-drone-ordinance-effective-immediately Thanks!
