  7. Hey Everyone, 

     

    Just got our website started up after receiving our Exemption.  It's not finished yet, but the home page is there.  Check it out,  feel free to share pointers, it's my first time writing my own website.  Feel free to criticize, I need the feedback.  Thanks!

    PS:  It just went live last night so it's fairly hard to find unless you type the address in directly.  If your feeling generous, share my site and that will help me get listed higher.  Thanks Gents!

  8. Yuneec or DJI

    PS. Not sure how distance is rated on these, Radius or diameter, horizontal or diagonal, and at maximum legal height or maximum capable height? I have taken my DJI out to about 2200ft at 400ft elevation. Which is about as far as I can see it (if i never let my eyes leave it). I never lost reception entirely but its pretty weak at that range and video starts to dropout. Not sure how much further I could go without losing it completely, but I think another 1000 feet would be out of the question. The sand dunes will be another good place to test this, Should be minimal interference and I can fly from a high point. Also should be easier to find, if the return-to-home decides to have a bad day...
  9. Yuneec or DJI

    Ford... Of Course... Not even a question. Of course my wife drives a Chevy and I drive a Ram. SO what's that tell you? (Gonna need a dislike button if somebody replies: MY wife is smarter than me) Just Kidding. Anyway, this is a great question. I haven't looked into it much as I have been very happy with my DJI P3P. I love everything about it except that I can't change cameras. And the price to go to an Inspire is, well... Not inspiring. I love how the camera is part of the brainbox of the drone so it knows when I'm applying rudder and helps account for this (not a replacement for a smooth operator though, trust me, as my "smoothness" has a way to go but, I do like having full adjustment of input/output ratios for this reason). Not much experience with the Yuneec system so forgive me if I state something that both models have. We have a Yuneec Typhoon (not even sure which Model) at work. I'll ask to play with it so I can at least compare the two side by side. I kind of like having a tablet for a display. It allows me to choose my OS, and have a backup display (my phone) if for any reason the tablet acts up. Such as when its 100 degrees and my iPad overheats or when its -20 and my iPad Freezes. (Tip, don't use a cover in summer and stand in shade, use an insulating cover when its frigid out, preheating with handwarmers is good too). Not sure how reliable or delayed the Yuneec display is but I love having that 720p realtime streaming on my DJI. The different flight modes are also pretty neat. Can't say much for the follow-me mode though as it needs GPS on the tablet and mine does not have this... Point of view has some good applications and in comparison to manual flight of the same route and speed would challenge the abilities of most operators (or at least me). It has a waypoint feature, but I'm pretty sure you have to fly the route manually first. I haven't personally found this very useful. Being able to input waypoints on the tablet and then have the drone fly while you pay more attention to filming would be nice. (if there is a way to do this, please let me know). The batteries on the DJI seem to do pretty good in all temperatures. Like I said, I have flown in 100 degree weather with the sun beating down and it hasn't fallen out of the sky yet. I have also taken it to -20 degrees and as long as the batteries are kept warm (in my jacket or backpack with a handwarmer near them) prior to takeoff, the heat generated by the battery drain seems to keep it going for the full battery life (which also does not seem significantly affected by the cold) Not sure what Yuneec has for battery management, but I am happy with DJI in regards to this. The P3P also automatically updates the battery firmware when you plug it into drone. (assuming a new firmware has recently been installed on drone) I'm headed to the sand dunes at Glamis, CA next month and will let you know if the sand and heat causes my P3P to fall like Satan from a steeple of if she can fly with the angels! The sonar feature is nice for indoors but I wish it was accurate above 50feet. It would be nice to have some kind of laser that gives you elevation AGL info, any idea in Yuneec has this yet? The phantom does pretty good in wind IMHO. I flew in 20+MPH winds two weeks ago chasing a Polaris RZR and it obviously could not keep up with a headwind and does get blown around a bit, but by watching the video, you wouldn't even know I was battling wind, crazy how stable the DJI gimbal is! I'll probably be getting a second UAV soon so glad to hear some conversation about it. I am smart enough to know better than to start looking until I am ready to buy! I see cookie, eat cookie. I smell gas, burn gas. I see drone, buy drone. Time to start making some $$$ at this to support all my hobbies!! OOH What's that? Something shiny... Got to go
  10. Virtual Reality Drones

    SO here's something ya'll might like. I put it in Action sports because this video is of such, but the possibilities of a drone for VR are quite unlimited. Check it out.
  11. PHANTOM X CONCEPT

    Now here is something that would be awesome for the action sport videography industry. I could just see a motocross track with 3 of these following each rider. It's gonna need some serious collision avoidance technology but, I think it's close. Can't wait!!
  12. Autonomous drones for searching

    Combine this technology with infrared cameras, and a microphone (that can listen for pleas for HELP of course) and some flashing red and blue lights... We have a far safer and less expensive form of search and rescue. Guys like me really need this when we go have more fun than fuel in the backcountry. HAHAH
  13. Here's a little family video that I thought the UAV community will enjoy
  14. Adrenaline Aerial Snowmobiling Video!

    Well come on out to Colorado and see Rocky Mountain Rentals. You can have almost this much fun!!! And yes, in case anyone wonders... I did this for free for a close friend. Still waiting on the FAA!!
