  1. Hi everyone, My friend, Devon, put together this brilliant resource on Ground Control Points. You don't need them most of the time but when you do, it's worth it to get it right. That's detailed here, as well. Check it out. https://blog.dronedeploy.com/when-to-use-ground-control-points-2d404d9f5b15
  2. My friend Lauren, who regularly kicks but at Drone360, wrote a great piece about a little-known rule. If you're working on the farm, you want to read this. http://drone360mag.com/rules-regulations/2017/06/part-137-agricultural-aircraft-the-drone-certification-youve-never-heard-of#.WULTFyeruGA.facebook
  3. I'm reviewing the drones to purchase and would like any recommendation on a Drone and Software for mining purposes, measuring stockpiles and 3D mapping.
  4. Found this study from AirData on minutes per battery for different DJI models. https://airdata.com/blog/2017/drone-flight-stats-part-1
  5. Hi everyone, I hope you're having a great Friday. I'm a Part 107-certified Remote Pilot and freelance marketing consultant. I work with Flying Robot international Film Festival, Drone360 Magazine, DroneDeploy, and the forthcoming Wedding Drones. Check out my photos/videos - http://instagram.com/karaemurphy Website: http://karaemurphy.co I'll likely be posting about all things except for drone racing.
  6. I have just found this link and it represents what we used to call, in high school, "Divertimento innocuo per bambini scemi" (= innocuous play for idiotic children). This is more silly than innocuous, though. The only contrusctive result was the behaviour of the li-po battery pack, which survived because of its insulation. http://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/lightning-drone-experiment-university-of-manchester/ Cheers from Bruno
  7. Was asked by Alan Perlman, where I fitted in here. I am a forty five year professional photographer who was always feet on the ground. I did use a fifteen meter telescopic mast for specialised aerial photography as it was cheaper than hiring a helicopter. My move to drones in my senior days is to enable me to film and shoot stills from one piece of kit. As soon as we mange to sell our property in Brazil we will be buying a cruising yacht and set off on my lifes last and hopefully great adventure. Exciting video will play a major part in this venture and drones will deliver what I need. I have checked out many on this site and have got it down to two or three at the moment. That's, I believe how |I fit in here..;-)
  8. Here is a link to a trailer of the new season of the AirVūz Original drone show "Drone Trippin." This season looks sweet as they are in Oahu, Hawaii! I watched a few of the first season on there and youtube. Those pilots are nuts!! Check out the trailer here: Drone Trippin: Season 2 Trailer Let me know what you think!
  9. Hello everyone! We're very happy to have found this forum filled with other drone enthusiasts, such as ourselves. We are based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. As there is some negative sentiments and information floating around about drones in general, consumer drones in particular, our aim has been thus far to promote the positive, entertaining aspects of consumer drones, and how they possess incredible creative potential for the future. Worded differently, we're trying to uphold the positive, friendly image of drones, rather than privacy invasive machines that some people sometimes perceive them to be. The future creative and innovative potential that consumer drones hold depend on an evolving awareness by drone enthusiasts of the risks and issues posed by different types of drones, particularly in regards to privacy, and how to avoid or mitigate them. To this end, we started classifying drones into different granular categories (e.g. drones by flight features, drones by camera type, etc.), which we believe will make it easier to identify and address or remediate particular risks and issues associated with different types of drones, drone technologies, and drone features, as they relate to privacy. Our hope is to dispel privacy issues from the fun entertainment that consumer drones provide to us drone hobbyists. In the interim, we enjoy reading/hearing what others have to say about drones, as well as learning about different types of consumer drones. Cheers, The Skynex Global Drones Team
  10. Hi everyone! Check out our new review show called AirVūz ReVūz. We just reviewed the VIFLY R220. https://www.airvuz.com/video/AirVūz-ReVūz-VIFLY-R220?id=58b5b423b471b6146c8b1006 Let us know what you think! What drone and/or drone accessory should we review next? Thanks!

    Hi Everyone, I am drone pilot for more than 3 years, therefore I decided to run my Thesis on Drones, Drones are the future of humanity, for patrolling, shipping, lives savings, inspection, transportation and other applications,As part of my Thesis I decided to run a study regarding pilots main concerns, as a drone pilot my main concern is Hitting someone due to a drone malfunction or even to be liable of 3rd party damages, study results are not confidential, I will be happy to share them, Hopfully many of you will participate so we get better understanding regarding your concerns. This research is meant for our use and your personal detail won't be shared with anyone (you may also answer anonymously.)https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfUur5suCUiv4H794qC6KyxsrsSBKtodsOy8NVOVvkERrPObQ/viewformHope its oK,Thanks!
  12. These people are crazy!!! But it definitely looks like a good time! Here is some footage I took of the 2017 Jaycees Ice Fishing Extravaganza on Gull Lake near Brainerd, Minnesota. It is the world's largest ice fishing contest and they estimated over 12k participants this year. Click the link below to watch the vid: https://www.airvuz.com/video/Worlds-Largest-Ice-Fishing-Contest?id=588d3ea537f44718d3f56e9e Thoughts, comments and suggestions are always welcome!
  13. I came across this video on another site I am always uploading my drone footage on. This "Droning America" show seems to have a very cool concept. In this particular episode the host travels to San Diego and interviews a drone pilot from there. When you have some time check it out and let me know what you think of this concept. https://www.airvuz.com/video/Droning-America-San-Diego-CA?id=58ab5ec5f24adb57695ea53a Thanks
  14. Planning a trip to Orlando to fly your drone around? Might wanna check out this news story first (link below). I came across this today and I guess the popular Florida city has added some new drone laws and ordinances for UAV pilots. Sounds like perfect timing for them to implement something like this with Spring Break about to start. https://www.airvuz.com/video/AV-News-Orlando-Drone-Ordinance?id=58a753168f3fe63b60c9ed16
  15. Hi I am new to this forum and just checking out how things work around here. Seems very informative, and I think I will really enjoy it. I have been droning for over a year now but recently just got a DJI Mavic and feel like I have entered a whole new world of drones. Everything about this little drone is amazing! Here is the first video that I took in downtown Minneapolis the other day with my Mavic: https://www.airvuz.com/video/Mavic-Meets-Gold-Medal-Park?id=58a26c619d17f44d8d064372 Thanks!
  16. Hi guys, I'm a newly interested UAS drone pilot looking for a school to pick from in terms of preparing myself for the industry. Right now I am torn between UND and Oklahoma State. UND is a leader when it comes to training pilots and offers a major in UAS (however it only focuses on flying and not engineering or design in uas), they are also pretty cheap when it comes to overall cost. Oklahoma on the other hand offers a graduate program that focuses on UAS engineering. What I am torn on is the decision about whether to completely forgo my backup plan to be a professional pilot and enter the drone industry through the engineering aspect of things, or should I keep the commercial pilot idea in hand because of the shortage and just go through one of the drone pilot programs that focus on flight and not necessarily engineering or design? Anybody who has experience in the field or at one of these universities would offer me huge help, thanks.
  17. For those that may have missed this segment on 60 Minutes this past week, here's a link to it online. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/60-minutes-autonomous-drones-set-to-revolutionize-military-technology/ Very interesting application of multiple drones working in "harmony" for a common goal. But wait, there's more!.......... Just today, FAA granted a waiver to a company in California waiving 107.35: Operation of mulitple small unmanned aircraft systems. This is only the 6th time, by my count, that FAA has waived this part of the rulemaking and the stipulations are interesting to read. Here's the link to the waiver https://www.faa.gov/uas/request_waiver/waivers_granted/media/107W-2016-00213B_Nightingale_CoW.pdf

  19. Hi, My name is Ranveer, Electronics tech and hobbyist and currently working in IT repairs. I am very happy to be here and look forward to have fun gaining help and eventually help where i can with my experience. Just got my first Quad; the MJX X101. If you guys have any info about this quad, i would like to hear from you and i will also share my experience with this drone. Thanks every one here and hope you have a great day. Ranveer.
  20. I am currently in the market for a new drone, I currently have a Chroma but am looking to get another as well. I think I am down to either a Phantom 4 or Typhoon-H. Since both are around same price, what would you recommend? Or is there another one out there that I do not know about, or have not done enough research on? Thanks!
  21. We love drones and want to protect the community as it expands. When a drone strikes a light aircraft, there will be calls for crushing new regulation on drones. HiddenGenius is launching a competition for technology that allows small drones to sense and avoid airplanes. This tech will help everyone in the drone community - and possibly reduce future liability, regulation, and risk of killing pilots. We need your help sponsoring (crowdfunding) the prize for the winning technology! You can also help shape the goals and rules of the competition, share it with others, and compete to win!

    Hi there, I’m just starting to get into videography and the next thing that I would love to add to my shots is aerial views – and what better way to do this than with a drone. I have a go pro that doesn’t get used much and I was wondering if you had any advice on any beginner drones I could buy that I could attach my go pro silver 4 to? I think this would be the best option for me. Cheers Conner
