  1. Past hour
  2. You make a good point about not buying the FPV goggles if the drone is not working. I just wanted to check if at least something was working.
  3. To add to my previous post although you are getting a bad logging message is the rangefinder actually operating ?. One way to test it without flying is to simply to go to Initial Setup in Mission Planner and under Optional Hardware select rangefinder it should show distance.
  4. Today
  5. Yes it was plugged in tight. No I haven't tried connecting the camera to anything yet. Why pay for goggles if your drone doesn't even fly yet right?
  6. Hi! I don't know if this is the right place to ask, if it is not please feel free to move my question into the correct forum. 😬 I work in a medium sized governmental institution. Multiple of our departments want to make use of uavs. Since I race FPV copters I was asked to give them a broad introduction to the thematic, even tho I have no clue about camera systems and "professional" uavs. The UAV should have an RTK system and a gimbal with a regular camera for aerial photography and gis (this is the focus), switchabel to a thermal camera for finding fawns in cornfields and hunting wild boars and a multispectral camera for agriculture (e.g. what and how much fertilizers is used if I'm not mistaken?) Multiple collueges will be sent to flying courses, ...but "easier" handling will probably be best. Can you give me any tips on proofen uavs that have the necessary functionality and can carry the cameras? Could the DJI Inspire 2 solve the requirements? We will of course contact retailers to advise us aswell, but I would like to at least be able to give my collueges a general direction of where this exciting journey might go. Thank you so much! P.S. Sorry for my englisch...
  7. Greetings. After many years as a photographer and an RC CP Helicopter Pilot, I've finally put the 2 together to start a new venture. I'm interested in piloting for just about anything at this time, but I intend to get into inspection and agricultural survey, or emergency response. I was a remote duty medic for the Commercial Deep Sea Diving industry, and have worked in Emergency Medical Services for most of my adult life in one capacity or another, usually as a volunteer. I'm in the process of forming a new company to provide my services.
  8. I would imagine that's normal behavior as you have configured a rangefinder but have disconnected the hardware. LIDAR is referring to the rangefinder what ever type you have configured. This we need to troubleshoot further. Is it constantly reporting bad logging ?
  9. Hi, I’m Jay from the Philippines. Zero experience on flying drones but I went ahead and got a Mavic Air last weekend to get me started. Looking forward to learn some best practices on piloting and aerial photography. Maybe you guys can point me to a some threads or links so i can start reading up? Cheers.
  10. Hello, I have a problem of bad logging in mission planer hub , as soon as I connect the rangefinder it shows bad logging, and as soon as I disconnect the rangefinder it shows bad LIDAR Health how could I solve these two problems? @Spitfire76 Thanks
  11. Yesterday
  12. So many opportunities of fields to specialize in. Finding a additional course after taking the advance test. Course opportunities is still new but wanting to learn in a field. Or even companies offering additional training. Building skills the right instead of trial and error. Would transport canada have a list that are respected in the industry.
  13. Hi @Guy, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! The Mavic pro is a great choice and because DJI has released the Mavic 2, sometimes you can get a Mavic Pro for a good deal. You can also check out our drone guide which will help you compare different drone models. Here is the link for that: https://uavcoach.com/drone-with-camera/#guide-3 I hope this helps! - Chase
  14. @Bill Mills, Sounds like a great mission, looking forward to seeing what you post in the cinematography/filmmaking thread! - Chase
  15. If you want to become a professional then I’d suggest you listen to professionals. Do you honestly think it’s a good idea to spy on your neighbor if your a professional?
  16. I dunno which version it I have, but I love using it. Been a real life saver for low-light noise reduction. Helps with flicker a little as well, but I prefer to use a proper ND filter to remedy that while shooting.
  17. any ideas, comments, advice appreciated.🆗
  18. Hi everyone! I have a phantom 2 [non vision] with a gps module with the number DJI-11-22-V2. so my question is will a gps module with the number DJI-11-22-V1 work on it?
  19. ok, good at least we can eliminate that from having done any damage. The video that you posted earlier looks like its just flashing F then a 4 which I would imagine is the band and channel its using for the 5.8 Ghz video channel. In fact have you been able to test the camera by using FPV googles or a monitor ?. Also in that video is that 7 pin connector securely plugged in as it looks kind of wonky ?
  20. @Av8ChuckPlease don't reply to any more posts. He just asked a simple question and you dog him over it. Have some sort of professionalism and less sarcasm. You say, " chances are they’ll confiscate your drone and throw you in jail", but you don't know that for a fact. I enjoy reading some of these posts to learn something from someone else's experiences to see if it's worth going professional and starting my own company, but not to come here and read posts like yours. Have a heart and give us a break from the rhetoric, negativity and drama, please!
  21. Sometimes, it's just droney baloney. This place had several structures, none of which were suitable for interior filming. So, outdoor small drone madness for this one, with a few b-roll ground clips folded in. Enjoy!
  22. You nailed it. Reasonably busy, enough that a new large parking structure was erected, with a tram, and there's a plan to extend the runways for international flights, but you know...Maui time, so could be like a decade or more from now. Small group of operators who actually request airspace, but there are enough sky pirates around sending up drones in this very area with no regard to the airport being right there. It's nuts. The tower manager was beside himself delighted that I phoned in so we could actually coordinate. But there was no requirement to phone in beforehand on the waiver.
  23. Much appreciated, Dave, I'll try this. Seems to be the closest thing to solution for now.
  24. No this is not the case on my aircraft.
  25. I Don't have a DJI, but want one. I have the YUNEEC typhoon H. I got the restrictions taken off by just giving yuneec my part 107 number, then they gave me a code to download onto the drone. A lot of my friends who fly DJI are having problems with airspaces and updates with these drones. Sad they have to deal with that stuff.😢
  26. Last week
  27. Hello @Jure Novak and welcome to this forum. My first thought is that you might have some loose connections. Check all connectors are secure and also for any bad solder joints. Is this now a solid problem or does it work sometimes and not others ?
