  1. It's a small scale classic Ponzi scheme. File reports at the FBI, FTC, Local Police and Ic3.gov. If everyone files they'll get this guy or guys. They need to pay for this crime.

  2. For those who want to move on and salvage what you can I have a few suggestions. Take an inventory of: Everyone who paid and what did you get, drone, website, training etc.. Anyone who paid and got nothing? Has anyone received a partial or full refund? Does anyone know how many "licensee's" there are? Is there a list? All of those who became part of DronesForce should exchange contact information. As @Patricio has started to do, everyone should exchange or post your URL [if you received one] and what was your "territory". In

  3. I’m convinced Steven Marsh in this thread is Alex Larson Also, Arwin at Memphisuav is Alex +1 (901) 531-9799. He's going to talk in a southern accent but listen closely and you'll hear Alex. This is also true of Chris P from www.vancouver-aerial.com. +1 (778) 655-8540. He’ll talk with a Canadian accent but he’s also Alex. And finally, Eric P from Alburquerque DukeCityAerial.com +1 (505) 605-6945. I recorded all my conversations when talking with anyone related to Drones Force. I didn’t record these conversations because I was suspicious. I did it so I could review my notes when put

  4. I don't know if it's real or fake but either way, for me, it ranks right up there with the cat hanging from a ceiling fan and lighting farts on fire. I'm sure the guys has already crashed it by now and called DJI tech support. It would be more interesting listening in on that conversation.

  5. Hey Scammed, As you guessed there are over 30 people who lost money. You should join the FB group.

  6. Hovering is a battery killer. Try to keep moving, it takes less power to stay in the air if the drone is moving. I’ve also noticed that recording drains the battery faster, which I guess is obvious I guess.

  7. Everything effects a drones flight time, so from that perspective some of what you say is true but there's a lot more to it than the battery. I don't know how much people are really interested in this. If people want to discuss this I'd be happy to share my experiences.

  9. Wow, didn’t intend for that to happen. I joke that because I’m Australian, English is my second language. Part of the point I was trying to make was not actually meant to be critical of their effort but to point out the harm that PR can have. I totally understand that when your a vendor supporting a customers R&D you can’t talk about the project publicly, but in those situations you probably shouldn’t talk about them at all. You have to be careful of stealing your customers thunder and not being able to include all the information you would like in the way you would like to pres

  10. Hi All, Sorry to hear about all of your losses. I too got scammed by Alex Roudinski (Real Name). When he sold me a photo booth from their other scam (Zoom Fotobooths). Alex Roudinski and Doug Allen have opened numerous franchisee scams and ripped off hundreds of people. Alex owns a fireplace company up in Canada called thebioflame. His contact number is 1 844-866-8888. These Canadians think they can rip our hard earned money away from us. They will pay!

  12. So very cool! I grew up on a farm in Iowa. I have some cool stuff of the farm I grew up on - my uncle farms it now. Here's one I did of some silage harvest last year. I have a few more in the can too...just have to find the time to edit.

  13. I would say nobody got what they agreed to. If you’re lucky, you got some equipment, some training, & a website. In addition to Drones Force getting you missions, you were also suppose to get 6-months of google add words to help promote your website. I’m sure nobody got that either. Sad that people are out there scamming honest people.

  15. I don’t know who you are but i did invest like others and I defended the company and I admit I was wrong now. They did deliver on everything they promised throughout the process and I had no reason to doubt them. I read through this forum and others have also said positive things about this venture. DHawk is one of those posters. I’m now trying to move forward and I will do that with or without help of people here who don’t want to collaborate.

  16. Yes that is who I expected also, Steven Marsh but I didn’t have any proof. Go back and read through the conversations. He always tried to shut those down who spoke negative of DF. He also was the only one who said he was flying and making money but no details. In the post that Alex made me remove I had suggested that maybe Steven Marsh was part of DF.

  17. Also their Instagram post about being at a drone expo in Japan was a lie (see attached pic). Clearly photoshopped logos and they weren’t on the list of vendors on display. https://ssl.japan-drone.com/en_la/results/exhibitor_list.html If I had to guess, unless anyone has met them in person, they’re not even in Canada.

  18. I was looking into them around July and backed out once I saw their Google reviews. Clearly fraudulent and paid for. Multiple reviewers giving 5 stars to Drones Force, locksmiths in Jamaica, places in France, etc. All were either world travelers that happened to review the exact same unique places; or they were paying a firm for fake reviews which is illegal in the USA. Then the ads saying “franchise” but in discussions saying it was a licensing agreement instead so they could attempt to get around FTC laws. Should get all affected and do a class action along with handing them over to the prop

  20. @Benjamin AAC do you have all the beta testers you need? I recommend that we lock this thread. The OP has never replied publicly and when people offer free stuff or ask for beta testers these types of threads tend to drag on forever.

  21. I don’t do Facebook, I also don’t have a dog in this hunt, but I’m interested in what happened with this and if at all possible in helping. I realize there’s going to be a lot of emotion for those that invested but I think @DHawk has the right approach and the sooner you can go from figuring what happened to figuring out what to do next the better. This will undoubtedly lead to some unpleasant conversations but for the few of you that successfully got up and running, you probably gained enough insight to what DronesForce we’re doing that you can replicate the parts that worked and

  22. This does suck!! protect yourself get to your bank and make sure they don't withdrawl any additional funds. Also, I did think the premis was a good idea, there are serveral of us who are up and running, I am wondering if we can form some type of network to salvage some of our work. I have a bit of business experience, my son develops apps, has a data management company, Patrick in NY is a video beast! I am sure there is a way not only to salvage this but grow it as well?

  23. Anyway this is a real advantage having Occusinc 2.0 instead of a wifi connection. But I find it difficult if DJI proposes a max transmission range of 10Kilometers. How is the "see and avoid" respected? But it gives me confidence in a good transmission on my VLOS flights! I will buy one and sell my Mavic Mini.

  24. I personally think it's real, but it goes to say how did Best Buy mess up the timing for that? Do those types of stores get that much of early access to products that aren't even announced/released? Definitely an interesting situation. DroneDJ had an article or two about this, plus the review of the Mavic Mini 2. I honestly don't think it's too worth it based upon the stats (probably because I already have a Mavic Mini and don't personally need 4k video), but I've yet to see any significant changes. Just my thoughts. Here's the DroneDj article. https://dronedj.com/2020/10/26/dji-mavic-min

  25. Hello, I’ve recently started a disaster response initiative within my company at Charter Communications using drones and small radios, providing aerial wireless coverage. I currently fly a DJI Matrice 600 Pro with custom made brackets for the tethering and radio equipment that attaches to it. I’m also Part 107 certified with over 100 hours of flying time. I would like to be part of your beta program. I feel I could provide valuable feedback for your new drone program. Thank you, Matt Hubbard Charter Wireless R&D

  26. Hiya, My wife got the Tello for me as a birthday present. Being my first "real" (?) drone, I have nothing to compare it to. I owned a toy from Best Buy some years ago that was fun, but was strictly a toy. That being said, I'm really excited to start this hobby. The Tello is super user-friendly and safe. Like a real pilot does, I have taken to logbook entries to document the time and journey. I would love to eventually get more serious with this and go for a 107 license! --M

  27. Only a few aerial shots. I used a Mavic2Pro but screwed up the settings. My fault but it would have been nice to know before downloading the footage.

  28. Hello Benjamin, Yes I would be interested in learning more about beta testing your HAMR drone. My company is Pixel Magic and we specialize in 3D CGI visual effects for TV and feature films. Most recently I just completed Raised By Wolves for HBOMAX. We use drones to create very high end photogrammetry that we then create 3D models for integration into films and tv programs. We also shoot high quality video for tv and movies. We have Part 107 experience and multi engine instrument rated fixed wing experience. You can reach me at raymond@pixelmagicfx.com. We are based

  32. The Mavic Mini has FlySafe and is restricted by geo fencing, I live on a military base and can't even fly it in my own house due to this, as in I can not physically take off due to the GPS signal in the house. So you can't just fly it whereever you want, and you can't turn this off at all, there is no manual ATTI mode. There is a tinfoil hack, but you lose stability without GPS. As far as Part 107 licensing in order to profit from using the mini you would still be required to get licensed, just not have to register it with the FAA. I have been researching Part 107 licensing and one site sp
