  1. Hello fellow dronists! I made a short guide full of tips when travelling with your drone. I organized the tips into stages such as preparation, pre-flight and flight just make content a bit more digestable. Feel free to give your own advice to help those who are looking to travel in the future. Any suggestions would be good too! As a disclaimer, this is my entry to the Epic Aerial Guides contest. I hope you enjoy it!LINK HERE
  2. If you can't laugh when things go terribly wrong, you may have a bad attitude. Best is to change the attitude. Anyway, I wish I woulda. Famous last words. I wish I would have practiced with the simulator before I crashed the drone from the treetop. A word to the wise. This video is an attempt at humor and a successful attempt at a comeback. https://youtu.be/oMGqkQ-oksg Stan

    UAV Coach BONUS Section

    OK, so I have my Part 107 certificate and I have the Drone Pilot Ground School certificate, I must be finished with UAV Coach, right? Not so fast. I just finished the last of the BONUS interviews that are provided as part of the Drone Pilot Ground School. The information there is really incredible! There is a goldmine of knowledge and information in those interviews. So, for anyone who is taking this course or has completed the course and obtained their Part 107 certification, I think it is very important that you finish the course and listen to each one of the interviews. I've listed them here even though they are clearly marked at the end of the course lecture listings. Ask a Drone Lawyer: Key Legal Considerations for Starting a Drone Business (32:26) Using Drones To Do Real Estate Marketing Understanding Drone Liability & Hull Insurance (22:27) Transitioning From Part-TIme to Full-Time Professional Aerial Services Running a Commercial Drone Program With Skyward (38:49) These are an important part of any drone pilot's education. Take advantage of them. The resources chosen to participate are top-notch indviduals as well. They know their business and they know what you will encounter in yours. Stan Nickel

  5. Greetings Pilots, My name is Captain Moore and I am part 107 drone pilot (via uavcoach.com). I wrote an article on my blog about the benefits of being a drone pilot. You can find it here: https://flightlogblog.com/2018/02/17/the-five-benefits-of-being-a-drone-pilot/ I would love your output, especially if I am missing something! Safe Flying,
  6. Not sure if this is the place to make a request, but I am looking for drone cinematography for a WEB TV series in development. Likely filming will begin in late august, 2018. Location is the Pacific Northwest (U.S.), so responders should live in the general area -- we just don't have the budget to fly folks in from any distances. This is a unique and fun project with some great aerial sequence challenges. The ability to fly full-size cameras is not necessary. Details to interested pilots. Thanks.
  7. Good Afternoon Everyone, I recently launch a digital marketing agency that focuses solely on the golfing industry. One of the services I offer is hole-by-hole guided tours. I'm looking for an individual/team that lives in South Florida (Atlantic side of the state) to do contract work as part of my team. I posted this job on droners.io and was overwhelmed with the responses from all over the country. I unfortunately was not specific about the location of the individual/team, so I'm hoping to make that clear here, I just want Florida based licensed UAV/Drone operators. I really appreciate your time and please reach out if you have any questions/interested. I'll be in Boca Raton from May 1-11 and I'm looking to meet prior to agreeing to any terms. Thanks, Matthew Neumann

    Hybrid Drone with 6 hours of flight time

    At the moment drones could fly only several minutes, but imagine if you get hours and hours of flight time, imagine if you get 5 kg of payload, this will be useful for thousands of purposes, from delivering humanitarian aid to package delivery. Finally, we can get it. First hybrid system for drones was designed at NASA and it's really similar to what we are doing here (you can see the NASA system here: Basically, it's an alternator connected to a gas motor, it is very similar to the system that is improved in your car to keep the lights on, the difference is that it's thousand times lighter. This is the project of the generator The gas motor has a power of 3hp that is transmitted to a brushless sensored brushless motor, the current then passes through the diode bridge rectifier and a tension regulator, then charge the batteries. This generator can provide for 2Kw, this is enough to sustain the entire drone systems and lift also 5 Kg of additional payload If you want to stay informed about my project please sign in this newsletter: http://eepurl.com/cUJnJr
  9. Hello, I stayed at this inexpensive beachfront spot in the Philippines, close to some beaches/sandbars, marine life, and falls. I’ve never really “featured” a location so let any feedback to make my video better would be great! There are drone shots and Gopro clips on this one. Thanks for watching!
  10. I'm about to enter the work force, but I would like to do freelance drone work for my community in addition to my daily career. What tips do you have for getting your name out there, attracting employers or branding yourself as a responsible drone operator? Thanks!
  11. Hey fellow flyers, Each time my drone took off, I’ve come to enjoy exploring El Nido a whole lot more! So, I am sharing with you some of my aerial footage. Personally, I still prefer Coron (also in Palawan, Philippines) due to a lot more fish variety when snorkelling, a few Japanese shipwrecks and some remote islands. Of course, the footage here doesn’t do the place justice so feel free to visit and explore! https://youtu.be/jYhQiXaGKRU

    Acquiring New Clients

    Hey Everybody, I first launched my business in August in New Orleans and came out pretty strong. I did some work for a local newspaper and for a production company in LA. But since December I have not had a service gig. Louisiana's winters are very short so I can't chalk it up to weather. Recently I have been running Facebook ads but I have not received anything traction yet. I have done the whole reach out through email marketing that has yielded me nothing in months. So I just want to ask the community, what strategies or tactics do you all use to attract clients? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  15. Hello! Here’s Manjuyod Sandbar, one of our honeymoon spots early February. It can be reached by boat from Bais City (Negros) but we came from my hometown, Cebu. Negros is now the best way as new permits are needed for boat operators to work in the area. This was way more work than I expected because of the time ramps. Please enjoy the short video!

    Some tips of diy a fast drone

    Here, I share my experience about how to diy a fast drone. In the past, I used QAV 250 frame equip with 1806 motors and 3S Lipo battery can fly very fast; and now I use 2205/2305 motor, come with small and light frame, DALRC6045 propeller, the speed get 185km/h. It is very important to choos your drone parts, these are my experience of how to choose drone parts? Motor: I have used many different motors, and these are some of I used. 2205 motors: equip with dalrc5045 3 propeller, their thrust is about 1200g(motor’s weight is about 30g, 4 motor is 120g) 2206 motors: I have used it, the weight is too heavy, hard to turn the corner, and the speed is not increased significantly; 2305 motors: this is my new test motors, and the thrust is very good, they’re super smooth and have a good power! For choosing drone motors, I think T-motor is better than others, most racing pilots are choosing their motor. Frame: I have three requirements for select the frame: Light weight; Small wind resistance; Strong and solid; In the past, I sued dalrc220 frame because it is strong and solid, and needn’t consider the weight, now I like the new frame xr220, because it is light, strong solid and small wind resistance. If you don't know frame or how to choose frame, you can read this guide: Quadcopter Frame Sizes Guide ESC: I think the most ESCs have no difference, the program are similar, you just need consider the price. I’m using the 30SA ESCs, in order to match my 2305 2450KV motors. Battery: To flight fast, a good lipo battery is very important; low C rate can’t discharge high current, if you want to flight fast, you need at least 60C or more lipo battery. How to choose high discharge rate lipo battery? I recommend you can choose this Tattu drone lipo battery, best power delivery, autonomy, reliability, long life and less sag than any other lipos, and most FPV pilots are using their battery. I have built many FPV quadcopter, and this is one of my FPV quadcopter’s build parts; Frame: XR 220; Motor: T-MOTOR 2305 motor Propeller: dalrc 5045 3 blade propeller; ESC: BLHeli_S 30 AMP ESC; Camera: Hsh1177; Lipo Battery: 1300mAh 4S 75C Lipo battery; Flight Control: F3. What do you think about these? Do you have any other tips to add?
