  5. Hi @Gert , Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum, thanks for joining! Mapping is really starting to take off, there is so much potential. What drones did you end up purchasing for this application? I am also going to link a forum thread about mapping and land surveys. I hope this helps! Chase
  6. Hi @Grunter53 , Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum, glad to have you here! FPV racing sounds awesome and we have some resources that could be helpful to you. I am going to link the UAV Coach FPV forum thread and our FPV Guide.
  7. My intrest in UAV'S are on multiple levels. I own a Consulting Company in South Africa and have allready purchased 2 drones from where we intend to provide different services. We started with mapping and general site surveying but my pilot and surveyor ran away after qualifying as a pilot. So I have decided to get myself busy with some hands on, "on the edge" industry exposure. Other than the surveying, my intrest is to develop the business further into mining exploration, precission and agriculture. I also want to explore the possibilities of using drones in securiry in the suberbs and anti poaching. That sounds like a mouth full but as consultants we are involved in all those industries and drones seem to have moved into that space. Glad to be involved with this Forum and hoping to get introduced to the latest technologies in the industry and to remain at the edge of new developments. Thanks for having me here..! Gert

    Phantom 4 Pro ($900)

    @alan it's still for sale! Didn't realize there were messages on here. Following up now and will close after it sells. Thanks!
  10. @Ryan has this been sold yet? If so, let's close the loop on this post. Thanks!
  11. Most apps to fly/log ask for your cert # once you specify that you want to fly/log/register a UAV under Part 107. Are there not red flags leaving this blank until a temp license pending is confirmed and a permanent remote pilot license number is given? If so, what number is used until that RPL# is given? Thanks for all you do, Alen!! đź‘Ťđź‘Ť
  12. In today's article, we talk about how Layton Construction uses drones on construction sites for mapping, modeling, and BIM. Our CEO, Alan Perlman, recently met up with their drone team on a job site to see how they’re using drones in the construction field. The team, comprised of multiple Part 107-certified drone pilots and Drone Pilot Ground School alumni, is currently working to complete one of three residential colleges, as well as infrastructure and beautification of the West End Central Neighborhood on the north side of Vanderbilt University’s campus in Nashville, TN. Read the complete article to find out how the Layton Drone Team got its start and what role drones play in their operations.

  13. Thanks friend! The lighting was the biggest challenge with this place. It's like the more expensive and extravagant the home, the darker and tougher it is to light. I used a pair of DRACAST 1000 LED lamps for this shoot. That extra boost coupled with a custom log profile helped bring balance in the exposure. I've been kicking around the idea of stepping up to a full on cinema cam that shoots 14-bit RAW and 10-bit codec just to try getting a little more dynamic range for these darker homes. Only problem is I just don't see the return on the investment, at least not just yet. So for now, I'll just keep banging on these Sony A7 cams I have to rock on. lol Sunset through twilight and into dark makes for some of the most dramatic scenery in many of these luxury homes. Every home could benefit from this time frame, even a condo in a crowded city, but most projects don't have the budget to afford that premium time slot (because if I'm not shooting a home or some portraits, I'm watching the sunset and enjoying it, which is worth a lot of money to me). The opening / closing title is a somewhat customizable preset I got from PixelFilmStudios. I dig their stuff, and it's worth me paying a few bucks for a bundle of them, instead of farting around in Motion, finding that I need to spend hours on YouTube to learn how to make something. I need to schedule some learning time in the near future, because I have ideas on how to modify these presets in order to turn them into other presets.
  14. That's my favorite one yet Jon! Nice work on getting a good balanced exposure between the interiors and exteriors when you're showcasing those views (wow! those views!). I also really like the night shots with the place all lit up. Superb work! Are you using a preset for the opening title or is that something you made in Motion?

  18. Ryan Deremo is a Drone Pilot Ground School alum and owner of the aerial services company SkyFly Cinematics, which is based in Los Angeles, CA. Ryan started his aerial work doing shots for wedding and real estate, and eventually broke into movies and television—in fact, we interviewed Ryan a while back on how to get started doing movie and T.V. work with drones. I recently sat down again with Ryan to hear about his experience as the drone pilot on set for the new Hollywood film Breaking and Exiting, a dark romantic comedy about suicide prevention and awareness. Check out the interview here to learn about Ryan's work on set, and chime in with any thoughts or comments you might have.
  19. Would be interested in hearing from CA pilots on the introduced bill.

  21. Hello, I am Kevin Hiatt a recently retired airline pilot and aviation safety executive. I have a great background in fixed wing aircraft operations and safety processes. I would like to learn as much about UAVs and perhaps break into the commercial sUAS market. I look forward to reading more of all the information that is provided on UAV Coach. Thanks for a great website!
  22. DJI drones helped track and stop the Notre Dame fire Source 1, Source 2 , video Gabriel Plus was later reported to have said: A video from the French Ministry of the Interior shows some of the drone footage as well as their operators. As we fully support female drone pilots, we’d like to point out that in one of the shots, a woman is seen holding the controls Of interest: Mavic 2 Pro , Matrice for public safety
  23. Hey guys, Here are this week’s new tracks. Free to use with attribution. Enjoy! 8-BIT ANTICS – Maybe for a cute retro-2D game? Or something else? Chiptunes 3 | THE ANT HILL GANG SADDLES UP AGAIN – And they’re off…the most incompetent gang to ever (attempt to) ride across the west. They’ll probably get lost. Anyhow, this might be fun in a comedic western-themed piece. Funny 6 | TECHNO RANDOMNESS – Unlike many of my tracks that are built layer by layer, this one was done “live” (in real-time) by improvising with two of my synths at the same time. Perhaps useful in some kind of wacky technology-based puzzle game? Puzzle Music 4 | DYSTOPIAN SUNSET – Perched atop a mile-high structure, the machine-being stares out over the shimmering grid, wondering what the night will bring. Sci-Fi 7 |

  25. Hi all, I just got this email from one of our students: Here was my response back to him, and curious how other pilots in this forum choose to weigh in. --- Hi there, both great models! "Worth it" is highly dependant on you and your goals as a 'dronepreneur' Some quick thoughts: How will you ever know without trying? Both models are perfectly suitable tools for taking high-quality aerial photos / video. I know pros who still use the Phantom 3, which isn't as strong of a camera or sensor set as your two options right now. The magic isn't in the camera itself, but the post-production...see the latest videos in this thread and feel free to scroll back a few pages to see earlier additions. Some great professional real estate marketers sharing their videos! It's a very consultative sales process — you're going to have to hustle and grind and keep building out your list of target clients and proactively reaching out to them to better understand what kind of service delivery (pricing, packaging, turnaround time, etc.) you feel comfortable with. It's a young industry. There's a TON of opportunity out there, but it's not easy money by any means. Building any kind of service-based business is really tough. Hope that helps!
  26. Hi all, I recently severed my signal line transmission cable on my Mavic Pro. I see they are available for sale, is this something I can replace my self?
