  1. Hi Av8Chuck. Always appreciate and look forward to your informative input. I read part 107 to basically say that flight from moving vehicles is waive-able if not conducted over populated areas (i.e. waive-able in "sparsely populated areas") and in no circumstance shall carry for hire. I think the full version of the original rule with comments that supply some context is informative. This section of part 107 has not been amended by the FAA reauthorization act of 2018.
  2. Flight from ground vehicles are pretty much prohibited. I note the "... sparsely populated areas...." language and the Part 14 § 107.205 stipulations Part of which follow here: List of regulations subject to waiver. A certificate of waiver issued pursuant to § 107.200 may authorize a deviation from the following regulations of this part: (a) Section 107.25—Operation from a moving vehicle or aircraft. However, no waiver of this provision will be issued to allow the carriage of property of another by aircraft for compensation or hire. Particulary, regarding language that proscribes the "... for compensation or hire." Surely this applies to the Ford Motor Company through their ground vehicle price increases for including such an option in retail deployment via cars. I'm not trying to be contrarian alone, but pursuing market applications of "techology" just to make a buck worry me. Thanks for your story. Vance
  3. Hi Isabella. Thanks for your article on Autel's trade-in program. Every manufacturer should consider a similar program, I think. It will, however, introduce considerable logistical considerations (e.g. trade-in receipt and processing) and potential investment burden on any supplier. Yes, I'd look into Autel's offer, at a minimum and can plan to take advantage of it. I have several aircraft in my fleet -- all different platforms, all registered and flown commercially, and all with different mission capabilities. The EVO is a great sUAS in class with the Mavic and Anafi.
  4. Good advice on practice. Training flights are FUN! Each maneuver is scalable. Circularizing your flight, especially in tight regimes, is the toughest! This is by courtesy of Scott Burgess, PhD, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and their small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) program. Have fun, and to borrow from Scott Manley (youtube - DSnM), "Fly Safe!" Basic maneuvers to practice to proficiency: Square flight pattern with aircraft heading away at all times Square flight pattern with aircraft facing toward at all times Square flight pattern with aircraft pointing into the square at all times Circle flight pattern around the square with the camera continuously pointing at the center at all times
  5. Make the quad a hexacopter. Evolution of flight, and all that. And, leave the dates out(?) It's relative.
  6. Definitely. Hat, long sleeve tee, polo.
  7. Make sure you have the vessel Master's permission first!

    Very cool platform. Watch your vto and landing. Runways do serve their purpose!

  10. It's just that the dji market is considerably larger than the parrot drone market that I prematurely sensed a cheap shot. Je m'excuse s'il vous plait.
  11. We could go offline and talk about what you did there. I am closer to La Rochelle. 2 hrs east (?), Civray.
  12. Hey, don't sell Parrot short, especially because they're a French company (think Arianne). The Bebop 2 is a nifty little aircraft.
