    Filming aircraft with UAV

    Yep, has been done before. Just requires a lot of communication and risk mitigation. From my understanding, nothing in the Part 107 rules prohibits this kind of proximity flying w/ manned aircraft. Would love to see the footage when you're done!

    CES 2019 Keynote

    Tangential and perhaps a bit woo woo to some folks, but I'm concerned about the health consequences of long-term exposure to 5G / millimeter waves. Just not enough research has been done re: prolonged exposure and could have subtle, adverse effects.

    FAA /gov't shutdown/registration

    Oh, interesting! It's been a while since I set up the account for the first time, forgot about the activation process. Hope you get that email soon!

    FAA /gov't shutdown/registration

    Welcome to the forum @Wm Paulson — I assume you registered at the FAA's Drone Zone portal. You don't need to wait on anything, it's all automated. You should be able to log into your account and see your registration number. You're not going to get an email or anything in the mail.

    Thanks for posting, @Chuck Usher .
  9. @JBR LIFE Photography did you get to drink that coffee that's being made at 1:12? Hehe, great video! I know I've told you this before, but I love the variety of shots you do — it really showcases the property and what it would FEEL like to live there. Re: Peter Lik, it was a great gallery. I've always been a fan of his work, though I have mixed feelings about his pricing and pricing fine art in general (interesting article here). Also had a lot of fun at the National Geographic gallery a couple of blocks away. Beautiful prints that my 2yo got a kick out of.
  10. Recently got back from a short trip to Miami Beach with my family. Woke up at sunrise on our last morning there to sneak in some drone flying at South Pointe Park. Feedback, particularly when it comes to the color grading, is welcome!

    Miami Beach // South Pointe Park at Sunrise

    Wow, thanks so much @JBR LIFE Photography ‚ I love how you were able to lighten everything up to make it feel more like sunrise. Yes, I played with the brush tool a bit but need a lot more practice to be able to properly isolate areas. This is really great feedback and appreciate you taking the time to teach me / share your settings so I can take a closer look at how you use Lightroom.

    Hi Jim — our forum wasn't the only place that this offer was posted.

    Flight BVLOS

    I used https://skyvector.com and clicked the specific chart, "Las Vegas" — that isolates the chart and allows you to zoom closer into the border of the chart, where you'll find more information like MOA operating altitudes and times.

    Flight BVLOS

    The floor of Fallon South 4 MOA is 200 ft. AGL...meaning that as long as you're under 200 ft. AGL, you wouldn't be operating in the MOA. And yes, those two statements represent additional information — that the MOA excludes airspace below 2,000 ft. AGL (i.e., the MOA doesn't start until 2000 ft. AGL instead of 200 ft. AGL)

    DJI Mavic Pro ($500), Nashville, TN

    Have flown with Ryan a bunch and can vouch for his equipment being in top shape. This is a great deal!

    Flight BVLOS

    I'd have to see the Sectional Chart, but yes it sounds like under 2000 ft. AGL, it would be Class E up to 1,200 ft. AGL, then Class E. You could include as part of your application, but maybe parse out that request to make it clear to the FAA that you understand how MOAs work and if your risk mitigation needs to change.

    Gio, a lively discussion. Hope it was helpful! Keep us posted if you end up flying. Would love to see some photos / videos

    FAA Ramp Checks

    Yah, our intent with this wasn't fear-mongering. It's just that the language is open to interpretation, and we get this question a lot about how to interpret them: 107.7 Inspection, testing, and demonstration of compliance (a) A remote pilot in command, owner, or person manipulating the flight controls of a small unmanned aircraft system must, upon request, make available to the Administrator: (1) The remote pilot certificate with a small UAS rating; and (2) Any other document, record, or report required to be kept under the regulations of this chapter. (b) The remote pilot in command, visual observer, owner, operator, or person manipulating the flight controls of a small unmanned aircraft system must, upon request, allow the Administrator to make any test or inspection of the small unmanned aircraft system, the remote pilot in command, the person manipulating the flight controls of a small unmanned aircraft system, and, if applicable, the visual observer to determine compliance with this part. So this article was our attempt at addressing the vaguery surrounding "Any other document, record, or report required to be kept under the regulations of this chapter." I encourage our students, particularly the ones who are new to aviation and looking to professionalize their ops, to use this article as a way to evaluate their own commercial sUAS operation and to see if any of the information could be used to improve internal processes.

    Hey @stevenraub — we look forward to setting you up with John in Grand Bay!
  23. I'm aware of the DJI AGRAS MG-1 — what else are people using out there, and what are you spraying? Thanks!

    Best Drone for Agricultural / Vegetation Spraying?

    No, have heard there's room for improvement and trying to see what other options are out there.
