  1. Good evening everyone, Does anyone have an info on International Drone Expo in LA this Demember? Is it worth going? What to expect? I wanted to attend Interdrone, however my schedule wouldn't allow me too. So this next expo may be the one I attend. I haven't been to a drone expo before so I do not know what to expect. Any info would be great, thanks. - Wash
  2. Hey y'all! I'm from PR and got started on RC flying about 2 months ago and due to my time availability and lack of people who are willing to help, it has taken me a while to learn. Any tips are more than welcome. I'm also available to anyone that would like too come over to my little island for any type of activities, drone related or not (everything is better with DRONES).
  3. I am enrolled in the Part 107 Ground School. After completing the Weather & Micro-meteorology section in the Quiz section question 10 /25. Why is frost considered hazardous to sUAS operations. Options are 1) Frost decrease lift capacity by changing the aerodynamic shape of the propellers. 2) Frost decreases lift capacity by spoiling the smooth air over the propellers. 3) Frost increases control effectiveness by slowing the airflow. The Quiz marks #2 as the correct answer. I went with #1 According to your lecture in section on icing on page 23 there is the following paragraph (half way through) "In the same way that frost can change the aerodynamic qualities of the propellers, ice can do the same thing" Can you point me to the section in the lecture that provides the explanation for #2 being the correct answer?.
  4. I'm looking for recommendations on an inexpensive drone that can lift a load of 3-5 pounds. Speed isn't an issue, nor is the ability to fly long distances. Thanks for any suggestions.

  7. I trust you are doing well. I am wondering if you can point me in the right direction. Specifically, I am searching for a way to provide access to DIY drones for 5th - 12th grade students. I work with students on STEM/STEAM projects at various schools. Can you provide information on where to purchase affordable drones for this type of endeavor? Thanks.
  8. North Carolina description House Bill 312 (http://www.modelaircraft.org/gov/statebills//NCHB312v1.pdf) Description: Makes it unlawful for any person or municipal, county, or State law enforcement agency to use a drone for the purpose of gathering evidence or other information or data pertaining to criminal conduct or conduct in violation of a statute or rule. A person may use a drone for purposes other than gathering evidence or other information or data pertaining to criminal conduct or conduct in violation of a statute or rule, but any information or data acquired from the use of the drone shall not be disclosed. Definition of 'Drone' would include MA. Added to State Budget: No state or local government entity may buy or operate a drone,” or “disclose personal information about any person acquired through the operation of an unmanned aircraft system” prior to July 2015 NC HB312 (http://www.ncleg.net/Sessions/2013/Bills/House/PDF/H312v1.pdf) (Latest Version) Tracking Site: North Carolina General Assembly (http://www.ncleg.net/) Status: 7/31 - Ban on state and local governments purchasing/operating drones until 2015 added to the State budget 3/18 - Ref To Rules, Calendar, and Operations of the House SYNOPSIS (http://02b954f.netsolhost.com/amastbills.html) (State List - Alphabetical) More Information (http://amablog.modelaircraft.org/amagov/drone-legislation/drone-legislation-north-carolina/)
  9. I am pulling the trigger today, and buying a phantom 3 advanced. prices look pretty similar (I am considering B&h, adorama, Amazon and drone world) i was wondering who you all preferred? Any weird warranty or supply issues? Who is your vendor of choice? thanks!
  10. After 2 weeks without flying due to high winds, I was finally able to go out and shoot at this local fisherman's cove. Had a great time and got some great footage, hope you enjoy ! Check it out below !
  11. In the VDO is my night practicing session during a drone festival at Queen Sirikit convention center, Bangkok, Thailand. It is my first official racing event. I can finished 3-4 laps as required in practice but when the real race comes I mostly did not finished the race. My time per lap is not good too. The best can go under 14 second per lap but my best time is 17 per laps. I learnt that there are many little things that made me not quite ready for an official race such as; not enough normally used-propellers (it's totally differ for 2-3-4 blades), use to same type of propellers all the way, better go early for a few practices before race, prepare for the worst crash and use the equipment that is easy to fix, bring spare parts, add a barrier in the front of your battery (my battery fly out of my drone once by sliding to the front), don't rush at start (for beginner), in racing they required you to have a laps caller in order to confirm the race is complete. And make sure the camera angle will not tilt on an impact. Most of the problems will be solve if you have a drone mechanic with you. And also if you do not crash at all most of the problems will not occurred.
  12. Hello, My name is Brady Koehler I work with the USDA-ARS in Fargo, ND. I am a lead technician for a sunflower drought stress study. The study will take place over the next 2 years. We have small plots that are about 5 acres and want to get as much information on a plant by plant basis if possible. I am most curious about image processing software that can help me get everything below. I have looked at a few places but there are so many out there. What would you recommend? I also would be curious to which drones you like most. I am currently looking at the DJI Inspire or 3DR Solo combined with an infrared camera, thermo camera, and rgb camera which we can mount and remove. Below is a list of everything we want the drone to do: · Plant height and plant count (RGB camera) · Maturity and flower date · Rogue plants · Hybrid phenology · Evaluate leaf and canopy traits · Canopy height · Canopy temperature to determine CWSI · Measurement of canopy light reflectance for determination of NDVI and CWSI. · Data geo-referencing · Temperature · Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) · Crop Water Stress Index (CWSI) · Leaf Area Index (LAI) Thanks, Brady
  13. I am MTech(Control & Automation) student.I would like to make my drone and want to become good pilot.I am looking for some creative techniques for optimization of drone performance.Also I am looking for start-up in this area.Hope I will meet some enthusiastic and creative people here.

  18. Hey all, This is Brad Spinuzzi with Adrenaline Aerial Imaging Inc. I am president and chief Pilot-In-Command for Adrenaline Aerial Imaging Inc. We primarily do construction, real estate, and industrial photography but, my passion is action and adventure sports of all kinds. I'll film that for fun any day, all day!! I am learning the "artistic" side of photography and working hard to improve my cinematography, piloting, filming, editing etc. My main experience thus far has been cold-weather, back-country filming, high altitude, commercial construction projects, etc. Always looking to learn from anyone willing to pass along some info and of course return the favor. I look forward to meeting you guys. I am very friendly, have a good (but sometimes ornery sense of humor) and willing to work with/for almost anyone. If you're ever in my neighborhood, shoot me an e-mail or give me a call. I'd love to go fly, film, learn, teach, partner, contract, sub-contract, etc. Now enjoy our flagship video, a little film of what I do in my spare time and where my heart is when it isn't raising my "herd" of children. Thanks for checking us out. Sincerely and Respectfully, Brad
  19. I swore I saw a side bar on an email I got from UAV Coach recently about how you may be able to fly commercially legally if you have sent off for your exemption but haven't received it yet. Is this true some how or do I still need to wait another 4 months to get my exemption before I can fly legally? Was I just seeing things? -Joe
  20. Hello, My name is Marc Concialdi and I am interested in purchasing a drone and want to fly one for a business some day. I have my Pilot's license and instrument rating and have been in aviation for years. I have flown toy drones before, but nothing too serious. I would like to know, which drone would be the best for me to make money with? Are there drones out there that are diverse and can help me make money in a variety of areas? I'd like to purchase one so I can register it with the FAA and start flying to make money as soon as possible
  21. Found this marketplace today through a friend, it is an interesting concept. www.flyhum.com
  22. Hello, I'm looking for a school that would teach me how to build and fly drones professionally. Also would like to meet people who is already involved in the drone industry. I'm looking forward to meet my future colleague entrepreneurs.

  24. What is "drone"? There has been common misunderstanding of both general public and even some industry professionals about the use of the term "drone". Unfortunately this term was introduced to the public via its more negative association with military use and the global media has adopted this term - may we add incorrectly - pretty much for any remotely-controlled aircraft. If we ignore the meanings related to bees and drudges - the actual meaning related to our industry is defined as "an unmanned aircraft or ship that can navigate autonomously, without human control or beyond line of sight". This makes perfect sense for how this type of UAS are deployed by the military. But it is incorrect to apply this same term to directly-controlled UAV's and UAS's. For example a remotelly-controlled (RC) hobby helicopter is simply not a "drone". The RC community has been "doing their thing" for decades without bothering anyone or posing major danger to general public and aviation. They are the "victims" of the success of multi-rotors - which made flying that much more easier... The easiest way to explain this on a real-world example is to use the most popular and publicly recognized UAV - the DJI Phantom... The Phantom can be flown in both direct-control and autonomous modes, as well as a combination of the two - blurring the boundary between "drones" and "RC aircraft". When flown for filming purposes - in majority of the cases it is flown as directly-controlled RC aircraft (in this case a "multirotor helicopter"). But when we use it for other purposes - such as 3D terrain mapping - it is flown under autonomous-control using specialised software and GPS navigation. In this case it becomes a "drone". While this should clarify the difference between "drones" and other types of UAS - this also highlights the confusion surrounding these systems. It really comes down to how these systems are being used and for what purpose. For example a simple brick, when used to purposefully harm someone, then becomes officially classified as a "weapon". Does that make all bricks a weapons? So unless an UAS is specifically designed as only autonomous (like the ones used by the military) - what defies “drone” is really just the mode of use. But using the word “drone” in the fashion and manner as it if being used by the news outlets, general public and even some industry professionals is equivalent to calling all cars SUV’s... And while we are at it - here is one (or really two) more related terms...: Difference between UAV and UAS. Another common confusion is with the use of the terms UAV and UAS. UAV stands for "Unmanned Aerial Vehicle(s)", while UAS stands for "Unmanned Aerial System(s)". The key difference is that UAV is just the actual aircraft being remotely-controlled. UAS on the other hand is the complete system that includes the UAV, its "payload" (in most cases s camera), all the remote-control HW & SW and it also includes all the wireless radio-communication technology - and in our case the video downlink. It also includes all the ground-based controls, monitoring and other support technologies as well as the crew men (and women) involved in its operation. This is why it is called a "system"... Feel free to share your thoughts...
