    Thermal Imaging Cameras for Drones

    @inetcarp, Excellent advice to those who are considering getting into thermal. I agree that one would need to become familiar with the software in addition to choosing hardware. Thank you for sharing your perspective from the inside. Best, Isabella

    Thermal Imaging Cameras for Drones

    In this article, we share a list of the top thermal cameras for drones. Our list includes cameras from companies like FLIR, DJI, and Yuneec. The camera you choose may be heavily determined by the drone you fly—many thermal cameras are made only to fit specific drone models. We provide specs and information on compatibility to help you determine the best thermal drone camera for your project. If you've worked on an aerial thermography project or similar project, what type of camera did you use? What thermal camera would you recommend to other drone operators? Share your thoughts below.

    Greetings Drone Nija’s

    Hi @JJWeHo, Congrats on making an exciting career move! Drones are opening up new avenues for work for many people in fields like agriculture, marketing, construction, and much more. Do you intend to enter a certain market/industry as you develop your skills as a drone pilot? Surely your prior background in aviation will be helpful during this time.

    Introduction

    Hi Lionel, Thank you for joining our UAV Coach community forum. We are glad to have you. How has the response been to your drone business in Southern Africa? I'd love to hear more about the projects Drone Dynamix is currently working on. Best, Isabella

    Greets from Nashville TN!

    Hi @Ted Ciuba, Great to meet a fellow Tennessean! UAV Coach is headquartered in Nashville, TN. We also offer in-person drone flight training classes right here in Nashville. You can learn more about registering for a class here. Please enjoy the forum! You might find some threads of interest in the Real Estate category. Best, Isabella UAV Coach

    Newbie!

    Hi @Stephanie Preston, Welcome to our community forum at UAV Coach. I would love to learn more about what inspired your interest in aviation and drones?

    Newbie!

    @Marcos Duran, Part 61 is the federal regulation that gives pilots or a school the authority to train pilots. This refers to manned aircraft and not to unmanned aircraft/drones. There is no regulation or requirement currently for training unmanned/remote pilots.

    Hi @Shawn Ebey, Welcome to the UAV Coach community forum. You've come to the right place to learn about drones and to get advice from experienced drone pilots. To answer your question, I would say that training is not only worth the time/money, but it is necessary. To operate a drone commercially for work, you are required by the FAA to have a remote pilots license. It's not difficult to get a license, but it does require taking and passing the Aeronautical Knowledge test. We have a complete guide on becoming a commercial drone pilot here. It will walk you through the steps of getting your license. Inspections are a growing and thriving field for drone operators. For advice on entering that specific industry, I suggest checking out some of the threads in our 'Inspections' category. This case study may also be educational on drone services business. I hope you find some of these resources helpful. Best, Isabella UAV Coach
  9. U.S. government agency DARPA wants to revolutionize how we operate in the underground world with drones. Underground settings, also called subterranean settings, are difficult and sometimes unsafe to work in. DARPA believes drones could help military and civilian first responders operate more efficiently in subterranean settings such as tunnels, urban underground, and cave networks. To help overcome some of the challenges associated with subterranean environments, DARPA has launched the Subterranean or “SubT” Challenge. The challenge seeks novel approaches to rapidly map, navigate, and search underground environments during time-sensitive combat operations or disaster response scenarios. Flyability has joined forces with the Autonomous Robots Lab at the University of Nevada, the Robotic Systems Lab of ETH Zurich, the Autonomous System Lab of ETH Zurich, the HiPeR Lab of U.C. Berkeley, and Sierra Nevada Corporation to compete in the challenge. Together, they form Team CERBERUS. Team CERBERUS envisions the collaboration of walking and flying robots as the groundbreaking robotic solution for subterranean deployments. Take a look at Team CERBERUS’ concept developed for the SubT Challenge in the video below: How do you think Team CERBERUS will perform during the SubT Challenge? Do you think they will excel in one circuit event category over the others or fair evenly in all three? Additionally, those interested in contributing to Team CERBERUS can pursue one of the many openings at Flyability. Flyability is now recruiting specific profiles opening the door to talented graduates to join the Flyability adventure and contribute to the success of Team CERBERUS. For a list of all internship and job openings at Flyability, visit Flyabiliy’s jobs page.

    Hello from Lancashire

    Sure thing, I will share this in our upcoming weekly newsletter. This is an interesting topic you've all brought up. I look forward to doing some more research on how disabled persons are using drones in different scenarios, and I will also give some thought into how we can create some additional content on our blog on this topic. Thanks! Isabella

    Commercial Drone Insurance

    Hi @Hub Media Company One of the drone insurance companies we are most familiar with here at UAV Coach is Skywatch.AI. I am sure many of our community members will be able to provide you with other suggestions, but you can find more information about Skywatch.AI here: https://uavcoach.com/skywatch-ai-insurance/ They offer flexible insurance programs including hourly (per-flight) and monthly plans. You can also receive a discount for flying safely. Hope this helps! -Isabella
  12. The pros and cons of sUAS parachute systems are debated heavily in the drone community. Drone pilots are particularly concerned with the possibility of a false deployment of a parachute system. However, with the recent publication of ASTM International standards for sUAS parachutes, they may become a more attractive option for drone operators who wish to fly over people. Plus, the first ever FAA waiver for sustained operations over people with a parachute system was granted to North Dakota operator, Botlink, just last week. Learn more about their operations in our recent article "Drone Parachute Systems Provide a Path to Flights Over People." We also share a few of our favorite parachute brands. As we mentioned, thoughts on parachutes in the drone community vary—some strongly supporting and others vehemently opposing. I'd like to hear your thoughts and experiences with parachute systems below.

    FAA Approves Nine New LAANC Service Providers

    Hi drone pilots, If you'd like to learn more about how the nine new LAANC service suppliers were chosen, check out our most recent article on UAV Coach: "How the FAA Chose Nine New LAANC Service Suppliers." The nine new suppliers are Aeronyde, Airbus, AiRXOS, Altitude Angel, Converge, DJI, KittyHawk, UASidekick and Unifly. Each went through a five-month onboarding process. This includes a one-month application period, one-month review period, one month of technical interviews, and two months of formal onboarding for entities that make it through each prior step. It's also believed that the fully implemented LAANC service is the first step to implementing a UTM. What do you think some of the next steps will be before we have a fully managed national airspace for UAS?

    Hi from Burbank

    Hi @Whistler, Welcome to the UAV Coach community forum. We're happy to have you join our community of nearly 50,000 drone pilots all around the world! One RC organization you might be interested in is the Valley Flyers Club. They operate out of San Fernando Valley, which shouldn't be too far from you in Burbank. They might be worth checking out. Here's a link to their website: http://www.valleyflyers.club/
