  1. 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
  2. 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!
  3. 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

  5. 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!

  7. 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
  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  18. 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?
  19. 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
  20. Drone School

    My name is Alyssa, I've just been hired on as a director of operations to a company called Drone School Incorporated. My job is to get this business up and running by the end of the year so im in charge of advertising, marketing, creating a syllabus etc. My boss wants this to be a 3 hour classroom course and 2 hours of simulator time (we have the realflight drone simulator) eventually building up to use real drones for training. We dont have a minimum or maximum age for this class since for now we are only going to be using a simulator. I was an air traffic controller so i have a general idea of the rules and regulations regarding drones but thats about the extent of my knowledge. My main question is what should I incorporate into the syllabus when i start putting this together. If you guys could give me any feedback on this I would be extremely thankful.
  21. Newbies only!! OK, so we have our FAA certification, that doesn't mean we know how to physically fly a drone. There is still plenty to learn. It seems so simple at first. I found that flying my drone in my house or yard was easy. But, when I tried to do the certification flight for UAV Coach, I discovered that "easy" disappeared from my vocabulary. UAV Coach actually expects you to fly a drone in a particular pattern with a bit more precision than "doodle" flying requires. This morning, I found this video on YouTube and would like to share it with other newbies out there. I think Tony & Chelsea Northrup have done an excellent job in showing how to fly a drone in a methodical way. [Very personal note: I'm not out of the woods yet myself, my Syma X5C quit working--somehow the electronics is causing one motor to burn out very fast--I've been through three motors in a very short time. And, then there is the shoulder surgery. I'm out of commission at this point. But, as soon as I can manage it, I'll get it all together and pass the UAV certification flight!] Anyway, here is what I think is an excellent video on how to fly a drone without crashing:

  23. Hi all, assuming good weather, I was planning to do a time-lapse of the moon's shadow racing across a field at the park across the street from my house during the solar eclipse next week. I'm in Nashville, TN and right in the path of the totality, so looking forward to a wild show. At first, I was worried about noise pollution, but there aren't usually folks home in my neighborhood, certainly in this park / field during the day. I'll be at around 300-350 ft. AGL, so there may be a small whine, but it shouldn't be distracting. By hovering / doing a time-lapse, I don't have to be as concerned about having a VO / maintaining situational awareness, and I can take some time to actually enjoy the eclipse. By the way, public disclaimer, make sure you get special glasses if you plan to look directly at the eclipse! Saw this note from the FAA as well and thought I'd share. If you ARE flying next week, know that there might be more manned aircraft traffic in the air and to watch out just as you normally would (but with extra vigilance!). -- FAA Safety Team | Safer Skies Through Education Are You Flying to the Eclipse Path Notice Number: NOTC7320 Do you plan to fly your aircraft on August 21 during the solar eclipse? If yes, you’re not alone. Several airports located in the path of the eclipse have notified the FAA that they are anticipating a significant increase in air traffic before and during the eclipse. Many of these airports are non-towered and have limited capacity to accommodate an increase in traffic. Here are some tips to fly safe in the path of the eclipse. Use US Chart Supplements (formerly AFD). Check NOTAMs for your departing and arriving airports, including airports along the route of your flight. Remember, some airports may already be at capacity. Call your destination airport, and respect the runway closures and safety information they provide. Expect Unicom congestion, and check for additional instructions on ASOS/AWOS voice over. See and Avoid is a high priority. Watch out for possible drone activity. Utilize Air Traffic Services when available. Use IFR operations when appropriate, file VFR flight plans …. let Air Traffic assist you! Have some specific questions about an area or airport? The FAASTeam is here to help. Our local FAASTeam Program Managers (FPM) are available to help with local knowledge.
