    Mosquito Control with Drones

    The article mentions 1500 pound drones. Probably a new class of certification will be available as well. Other applications and further relaxation of drone laws for commercial use in other areas are also mentioned in the article. https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/16/florida-county-to-battle-mosquitoes-through-federal-drone-program.html

  4. Here is a drone spectacle. Imagine controlling all of these at once without any computer coordination. Couldn't do it. Must be a fun project. https://www.msn.com/en-us/video/peopleandplaces/watch-1374-drones-dance-across-the-sky-over-ancient-chinese-city/vi-AAwDm1Z?ocid=se Stan

  7. I have splash drone 3 fishermen. It is waterproof, floats and has a 4k camera that can see underwater more effective, easy to control and long battery backups. This is a good option for beginners.

    Hello From Florida

    I am a professional photographer who looking for something new and exciting. I am a navy veteran who has aviation experience. I bought some cheap drone and found them to be starter drones where you learned to fly. I have now gotten a drone with many features including GPS, intelligent tracing, headless mode, fencing, low battery return, lost control return, precision hold, follow me mode and more. It also carries a camera, which cam be adjusted up or down. it has FPV. As I move forward with my expertise in flying drones, I thought it may be exciting to move forward and get a commercial Pilots certificate. My entire government career, both Navy and DOD was in aviation. I was always interested in becoming a pilot, but I am passed that in my life but the Drones have caught my attention

    marine survey drone components

    I am looking for advice on building a water surface drone for bay and estuary survey. This would not be different from a mapping aerial drone, except it doesn't have to fly. A large battery is no problem, so all day observations could easily be made. Requirements: FPV, gps, camera--[the GoPro Hero 4 has been recommended], possibly collision avoidance--[fishermen's nets, their canoes, mangroves, etc], controller with Large monitor screen, gps grid overlay, pre-programmed waypoint following required, radius of survey away from controller not to exceed one mile--- more likely a hundred to a few hundred meters, a depth sounder capable of storing gps position, time and depth --either on a S/B card, or internally for later transfer with cable to computer. Depths usually in the less than 100 meter range-- the majority in the 2 to 20 meter range Making the floats, installing the equipment is the easy part-- I have no idea where to buy the component parts, or exactly WHAT to buy. Propulsion would be through a twin screw servo motors, [ one in each of the mini catamaran hulls], as well as dual rudder control. Operating speed 4 knots, [8 m/sec], would be ideal. This could be accomplished with two servo 12 vdc motor turning the correct rpm. Variable rpm required. The camera would be mounted about 4 feet above the water to reduce spray effect. the hulls would each be about 4 inches in beam, [with overall beam of 4 feet], and max of 6 to 8 inches depth, and about 8 feet long. A very easily driven hull form for minimum resistance. the electric/electronic components would be housed in a small water tight pod about 18 inches above the water. Recording would be done in less than 18 knots of wind, preferably less than 10 knots. Wave formation would then not be a problem. The mother boat is a 21 foot survey/utility boat now operating in survey work as was done a hundred years ago--- I wish to update, simplify, and reduce errors--[mostly human], in this survey activity. Any help is more than welcome-- Alan Perleman has been very patient in answering my questions, but has referred me to this forum hoping to find someone who has the answers. Thanks in advance, Don Cameron . email: bonzarto@gmail.com I am in the Philippines which limits my options for the acquisition of reliable information and the purchase of the components. I have no problem in the assembly of this project----dc

    Sound mapping drones

    A very quick Google search turns up a number of articles where there are studies of the noisy drones and some mapping of where they go, etc. I'm thinking that if the noise of the drone itself could be filtered out electronically or mechanically, it would be very useful to have sound-mapping equipment carried by a drone. This would be particularly useful for search and rescue operations where cries for help could be pinpointed. No visuals can do this job. I could imagine people who carry emergency whistles on hikes could be found by such a drone. Maybe dual visual-sonic mapping would be possible. Another idea is to use such a service for realtors. Some people like me like to live in a quiet neighborhood. I sure would like to know what sounds I would be subjected to when I move to a neighborhood. For one thing, builders tend to hide railroad tracks behind a layer or two of trees, and until people move there, they have no idea that the train comes roaring through at 4 a.m. Or trucking or emergency vehicles. Any noise maker. Does anyone have any thoughts or perhaps even have experience with this idea? Stan
  11. 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

    Drone Flying Internships

    I am a highly motivated college student eager to learn about Drone Flight as a possible career choice. I would love to intern at a drone company for a summer to gain experience in this field. Could anyone recommend companies eager to hire interns for summer employment in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello

    Just want to say hello; I have 9 years in GIS and now I want to incorporate drone mapping along with aerial photography and perhaps orthos into my work. Recently received my Part 107 and looking into upgrading drone equipment right now to the Inspire 2 with the zenmuse x5 and the ndvi camera.

    NDVI Imagery and Drones - Resources?

    Hi all, got a great email from someone in our community and wanted to crowdsource a response: Thoughts? I know Sentera sells a DJI upgrade package. And I've heard about companies like Agrobotix and Drone Nerds, the latter selling add-on cameras, but I don't have direct experience with either company.
  16. 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
  17. 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.

    Hello from the Bay Area

    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.
  20. 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

    Old Pro moving up

    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..;-)
  22. 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!

    Drones and Privacy

    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
