  1. Each autumn and spring one can see an exciting phenomenon here, as the fish try to clear the rapid by jumping over it. About 300 years ago, Jacob, the Duke of Courland, invented a way to catch with baskets placed along the rapid the fish that came upstream to breed and jumped across the rapid. Due to these fishing devices invented by Duke Jacob, Kuldīga used to be called to be a town where you can catch salmon in the air. One could catch as many as 80—100 salmon a day.

  2. DJI Air 2s Vs Mavic 2 Pro, a comparison in terms of video functions and quality to see if this new model has taken the place of the king of DJI prosumer drones

  3. Hey Chase, The most obvious answer would be real estate but anything that will allow me to fly safely will be done. Inspections. Surveying. Mapping. Photography and videography. Search and rescue. Though most of them will require an upgrade from the A2s. But it was the mid grade with a nice censor. The geo fencing is my only complaint. Several places I can fly but DJI has them shown as restricted and not authorized. Next drone will probably be the Autel duel. I’d like to move more into inspections. How about you? bill

  4. All the most useful settings in DJI fly app. It is meant not only for beginners, as it can also help users coming from other drones to find their way around the new layout.

  5. The complex contains three buildings. Large Sphere building was used depending on the day and event time as a dinning place, movie Theatre, place for disco or conference center. Second one was used as a hotel and a third, large building used to be a brilliant hotel for a soviet people, but seems it was never finished. Near the complex, you may find a ski track. Seems it was a pretty nice place, until it gets abandoned after the of USSR.

  6. Thanks Chase, that helps a bunch! The specifics make things a bit complicated.

  8. We were doing this in 2017-2018, miles out at sea, using a FLIR DuoProR to locate the people in the water, streaming the location data back to the ship that would launch a second drone with a lifesaver and use radar to navigate it to the people in the water. It was amazing how accurately they could drop the lifesaver from about a mile away.

  9. Congrats on your first drone...they are a blast. Mainly fly safe and manage your batteries to get the most out of them. Each model is different and I don't know your particular model, but on my DJI drones I store the batteries at about 60% charge, never charge them when they are hot, and watch for swelling/cracking etc. Your owner manual should have some good guidelines, and YouTube is your friend Happy flying!

  10. Ok Ya'll so I took the test today. While it says there is an introduction and 3 sections, it really is an introduction and one section. It took me about an hour or so to get through the intro and section one. Sections 2 and 3 are essentially other resources for you. Yes, you do need to get a 100% on the test - it was a 45 question multiple choice test. If you did read through the lessons you should be fine. Happy to answer any questions people have. Cheers, Adam

  11. My understanding of Part 107 certification is that it never expires but you do need to take the recurrent test in order to be "operational". In other words if after 24 months of passing the initial test you don't take the recurrent test you can not fly commercially until you pass the recurrent test. I took my initial test back in September of 2016 and since I did not end up flying commercially I did not bother to take the re-current test in 2018 but would also be interested to know for sure if I can simply take this new free online recurrent test that should be available in March.

  12. Drone Deploy is fine if you are not planning on using GCPs and you don't want to mess with learning the software. Basically, they do all the processing for you and a little cleanup of the 3D aspect. The pricing isn't bad as a temporary solution for a full package sans GCPs at around $3000.00 a year. You have a lot more control over your projects with Pix4D both up front in establishing GCPs and checkpoints and in the final product including a lot of additional outputs like contour lines, DSMs, DTMs, point clouds, ect...For this, you do have the additional task of learning how to use the s
