    DJI Agras M-1S controller firmware

    Mad, You are correct, when saying that DJI expects you to pursue all matters related to service through a registered dealer. Although it was a painful process, the controller for our Agras MG-1S has the current firmware and latest greatest versions. The only error remaining is "This account has not been added into DJI Agras Management System. Please contact support." Having a DJI account will not correct this as I have one of those for a phantom 4. The hurdles to get this in the air are cumbersome.

    DJI Agras M-1S controller firmware

    You rang lol. Ok the Agras is very different from any of the ususal models out there.The reason DJI provide very limited support is its meant to be all provided by the supplying dealer as I understand it. Op can you give some more info on the issue and what’s going wrong in the update, when and what’s the error ? If it’s the MG1-P or RTK then you can update via the App onboard via Wifi or Assistant 2 for Agras however this is not the same assistant as you have for mavic or the Inspire so make sure you are using this special assistant and not the common public one, this can be downloaded from Agras page for that model. if it’s failing over Wi-fi via the App try to use the Assistant on PC or Mac , often the failure happens because the RC controls link affects the Wi-fi and prevents the download of the file and using Assistant gets around this. Give us some more info as we can see what is going on, have you tried talking to your dealer on this ?

    Introduction from Nepal

    Good Morning From Nepal, Namaste, I am a complete beginner in the Drone Industry and I would like to get a Pilot Licence and learn how to fly with practical trainings. I am native french, living between Europe and South Asia and developing my social ventures in Women&Girls Health, Women Economic Empowerment and Sustainable Ecosystems for the remote areas of the Himalaya's Mountains, later for the Andean Mountains and Southern Africa too. I would like to learn to use the Medical Drone Technology for the following purposes : - to monitor women health living in very remote areas (rural, mountains with no proper access to roads) or sensitive areas (armed conflicts zone, refugee camps..) - to do some aerial mapping of remote villages in Nepal and Sub-Saharan Africa to localize vulnerable populations with no access to healthcare facilities and girls in danger in terms of gender based violence, child marriage... - to deliver emergency blood supplies, lab samples, emergency and prevention vaccination ... - to monitor water quality in the Himalaya Mountains/ Andean Mountains - to monitor Global Warming, Climate Change and impacts in terms of Floodings, landslides in desert areas or mountains areas and of course impacts it has on Population's Health. I am not an engineer so I cannot build the drone and the technology associated to it but it is an idea that I have in mind since last year as it could be game-changing if I could develop this company for bring remote health care to Women and Girls in low income countries . For that I would need either to do a partnership with Drone Companies or design a Drone with Innovation Centers across the world. I would like to have my own drones too, to learn and practice but I have no clue which one would help me to achieve my ambitious goals. Maybe I have to be different one's. I would be very pleased to be connected with your entire community. I will be back in Europe mid-march to register my organizations and then will travel to USA two weeks during April. To start: -Could you let me know how I can start studying for the Drone Licence in March? - Then how could I attend a 2-hour training with your team in USA? - And Which drone should I buy as I am a beginner but want to become very advanced as I will use it for my activities, not only hobbies? Thanks for reading me! And I would be very grateful if the Drone Community could help me to achieve this project as I work in challenging settings and cannot achieve anything alone.I will need a great team around me. Have a great day. Cheers. Stephanie LETESSIER Mob UK (Whats app): +44 7956442162 Skype :sletessier0506 sl.letessier@gmail.com

    Flight Plan Examples? Tools?

    I would ask the university for an example of what they want. What state or local laws restrict flight over the campus? Or is it "operating from" that requires their approval?

    Flight Plan Examples? Tools?

    Ah, sorry, I wasn't very clear. I don't need FAA prior authorization, I need it from the university. They request you submit all your info 90 days in advance of when you want to fly. So I hope I can anticipate the weather that far out!

    Flight Plan Examples? Tools?

    Hey Bill, Assuming you are doing instantat authorization, whenever you apply for instant authorization, via kittyhawk.io or airmap, you are going to be prompted to draw a flight plan during the application. Check out this tutorial for a better reference:

  11. I'm in Washington State and thank you for your reply by the way I've been into drones for a few years now and just can't seem to get enough of them I started buying and selling them to pay for my habit basically I'm just looking for the cheapest place to get a quality drone Like contixo or hubsan. Or even if I couldn't get them unassembled get them at a bulk rate so yeah I guess resale would be more the goal it's just every site I go to to try to find them his crap they just sell crap drones lol
  12. Where are you located? It sounds like your interested in becoming a reseller and possibly a system integrator for UAVs. Unfortunately that sort of channel doesn't really exist in the commercial UAV industry. ALL of the consumer brands have decimated any semblance of a channel so support is really the gating factor to their growth and they aren't willing to provide enough margin to support a channel. This is partly a generational thing, millennial companies like DJI think they can provide all the necessary support via the internet and use PC's as examples of how its supposed to work. I guess they haven't noticed that neither Apple or IBM are computer manufacturers anymore, their consumer electronics companies. As an integrator you need a platform that can be reconfigured to be a purpose built solution for specific payloads and applications. To accomplish that they need to be open and extensible. Anyone who figured this out have changed business models to supply the services rather than products. That's why possibly your best hope is actually the DIY market. Anyway, good luck and let us know what you find.

    DJI Agras M-1S controller firmware

    Hi @Chase Atwood, i have some unpopular insights... Unfortunately DJI is a vertically integrated closed system which means if DJI didn't manufacture it, its not going to play well with the drone, and DJI manufactured accessories don't work well on non-DJI drones. This is a consumer mentality that does not translate well to professionals who have to depend on their equipment working when they need it. I have never flown the AGRAS, but if the DJI GoApp or LightBridge2 is part of the software that makes this system fly then your likely going to have all the same difficulties as everyone else. This is such a niche product that its doubtful that third party vendors like Litche would support it. Its not even clear if there's a DTK for the Radar etc.. Sorry I can't be helpful other than to say that the GoApp and LightBridge2 upgrades are a pain on all platforms so I suspect that if you applied some of the same techniques for upgrading hopefully you'll be pleasantly surprised . @Mad_Angler1 helps a lot of DJI folks and maybe he'll offer his support.

    Finally pursuing an interest

    Welcome to the forum @Eagle Tom. You don't need to get your Part 107 to learn how to fly a drone safely. There is no skills component in the 107 so many think once they have that their good to go. Learning primary flight control is the right way to go, its easy - just takes practice, and once you get the hang of flying in all orientations then your much better prepared to be a professional if thats what you choose. What kind of drone did you get?

    Introduction

    Welcome to the forum @David Wills. In your considerable experience with evidence collection what kind of camera did you use?
  16. Yesterday
  17. Is anyone familiar with the Agras firmware? I'm having an impossible time trying to get the controller firmware to update and although a lot of DJI support exists for several of their drone models, the only support is via email for the Agras models. Anyone with some insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Introduction

    I am fully retired military (USCG) and I want learn proper drone operations for future business ventures. I live in Palm Bay, FL and hope to provide drone aerial photography to my county an/or city. I am hoping to purchase a Mavic Air or Parrot Anafi. The services I hope to provide, are road improvements, Culvert drainage installations and real estate support inspections. I am considerably experience in still photography evidence collection. I am hoping this forum will guide me proper drone operations and any test examination I need to prepare for.

    Flight Plan Examples? Tools?

    All- I'm planning on doing a flight around a college campus where you need prior authorization first. Part of the request requires uploading a flight plan. Does anyone know what this might look like? Is it really a map showing the area I want to fly? Or just describing the areas I was planning on flying? If they want a map, are there any tools out there? Or could I just get a Google maps image and mock something up in Photoshop (I'm pretty decent in PS, so I'm sure I could if I knew what I should be doing). Thanks for any feedback and sorry for the newb question. -Bill

    Finally pursuing an interest

    Greetings from the Shenandoah Valley of Northwestern Virginia. About a year ago I saw an ad for an "in person" course in drone certification at a community college. It was a week long course but I was not able to get the time off from work approved. I never took the course, but the interest remained. My girlfriend gave me a drone for Christmas this past year and I want to learn how to fly it the right way, so I can safely pursue a fun hobby and maybe do it professionally as well, since it seems to be a growing industry. I've been fascinated by aviation in general as long as I can remember and now I'm ready to do something about it.
  21. I buy and sell drones I also fix them up a little bit if it's in my scope of knowledge basically I'm looking for a place to buy unassembled drones not Do It Yourself Drones not like those kind of kids like that except for say hubsan or contixo I'm also looking for a good place to get drones wholesale but every wholesale say I see it's just the crappy cheap unnamed brands crap drones I would eventually like to make a living off of buying and selling drones working on them I'm just still in the process of getting my resources together which is why I'm on here asking you guys these questions this form is awesome I appreciate all your guy's help thanks so much
  22. I believe that Amazon is addressing a critical component of the drone delivery logistics chain. But, there will be many other solutions that will serve each niche and technology scenario. More options should be invented and tested before the best solutions are adopted. This industry has only just started to develop.

    What Is Your First Purchase After the Drone Itself?

    Extra batteries carrying case and extra charger
  24. If every recipient lived with an acre of open ground around them ..it MIGHT work. The variables for obstacles in the typical U.S. neighborhood are in the thousands. Impractical. Jeff thinks everyone has space? What is so special about your purchase it needs to not only put tens of thousands out of work but also fill the air with drone pollution? The path to homes will have drones over peoples/childrens heads! and there will be accidents not to mention the miscreants who will love taking shots at them. Maybe better in remote areas and medical deliveries? Tech thinks there is one future and it belongs to them and their 'thinking' Maybe the future was already here and we had most systems already working? No need to take what works and manipulate it into complexity. Amazon doesn't know what to do with all that money so they do this! People NEED jobs and a purpose, Amazon is taking them away from other areas.You think you solve one problem only to create something bigger.Stop and think instead of rushing headlong into this non stop mega monopoly filling the air with buzzing tech bees dropping off your new pair of shoes.
  25. I guess my thoughts would be do you really trust a company that offers a “Crash” Part 107 coarse!? Just a thought..

    Choice of drones for precision agriculture.

    Kind of depends on what data your collecting and what your collecting it with. A quadcopter can probably fly that much area but how long it will take will be determined by the FOV of the lens, the altitude and the overlap required. Most likely a quadcopter is not the most efficient or best UAV for that sort of job.

    Choice of drones for precision agriculture.

    Does anyone have a recommendation for flying 700-800 acres per day for Ag field scouting process (especially about sUAS and batteries)? Mainly, can a quadcopter fly 700-800 acres per day autonomously? Thanks!
