  1. Ah, a fellow Texan and someone interested in drones for SAR. Awesome!! best of luck to you!! l5imaging.com
  2. Welcome! Interesting background. I started 35 years ago writing assembly-language math libraries for supercomputers . Skydio and First Iz are moving along the lines you mentioned, to name a couple. Autonomous drones for event recon is interesting, but approval to fly over people may be challenging. Good luck!! - jim l5imaging.com
  3. Most dangerous activities tend to be at night, which is my speciality (although still working on daytime ops waiver for using drones at night). Increased injury risk and close encounters of the four-legged kind. Most dangerous was a search-and-mark (locate a physical asset, mark it with an IR strobe, record coords). Retreat to safe comms space and report asset position and ingress instructions. Can't use a lot of visible light for reasons I don't want to go into. Substantial use of NODs on that one. Almost fell a dozen times - ugh ... glad it was not too long. Beyond rain, craziest
  4. Just a quick hello from Carrollton, TX (north of Dallas). Most of my drone usage is in search-and-rescue. I also volunteer for the US Forest Service and hope to help with thermal scan of potential hotspots after controlled burns in the LBJ Grasslands near Decatur, TX. Thanks for such a great community.

  5. Daytime Search and Rescue operations, particularly obtaining terrain intelligence and discovering signs of where a lost person(s) might have wandered when. there are multiple options ahead and covering all on foot is impractical. The Mini is small enough to slip into a pack with minimal impact (ounces are pounds and pounds are pain). The unit could even be worn on a belt for faster deployment. The drone holds up well in wind and the camera is more than suitable for quick scan and discovery. Flight time on a single battery is also suitable for multiple quick deployments without a change. S
  6. Exhibitor participation is WAY down from last year, but so far I've enjoyed all the law enforcement presentations and made some good business contacts. Jim Armstrong::L-5 Imaging::www.l5imaging.com
