  1. Hi all,Just bought a drone? Already a professional? A drone enthusiast? Regardless, your help is needed!I am looking for drone/RPAS/UAV pilots and enthusiasts to be a part of research I am undertaking into drone flying practices in the UK.What are the aims of the project? I’m exploring what kind of airspace is produced by the interactions between regulation on the one hand and the actual experience of drone flying on the other. What do we know about the invisible politics of airspace? How important is the drone user in shaping their own flying experience? Don’t worry about answering that of course… that’s my job!How could you contribute?I’m looking for two types of contributions, both of which would be completely anonymous in the final research: Flight diary – regardless of how long you’ve been flying drones, I’m looking for pilots (beginner, hobbyist, professional, whatever!) to record a diary of the experience of just a few drone flights over the next 2 months - I'd give plenty of pointers as to the kind of things to talk about, and time commitment is all up to you. This might then be followed up by an interview if you’d be willing. Interview – if you work in the industry, this would be a short (informal) interview discussing your own drone flying habits and interests, along with the wider sentiment of the industry/your company. I am based in London, though you would not be expected to travel – please do get in contact wherever you are as I would love to hear from you.If you are interested or would like further information, please get in contact with me via PM or by email – droneflightresearch@gmail.comThank you for your time!HarryGeography undergraduate student at Oxford with a keen interest in the aviation industry, currently undertaking research for my dissertation.

  4. I'm hoping people with experience can give me some hints and tell me where you've made mistakes and what you've learnt
  5. Hi everyone, I'm Ex Military and Commercial Aviation. I've just started a couple of new businesses here in the UK, 1 being UK Drones, the other Fishtripadvisor. I'm looking for a decent uav, aerial photography and cinematography. Been trying to buy a Typhoon H pro from Yuneec here in the UK, but to be honest it looks like they are not bothered about making money, are they getting too big? I really liked the Typhoon, but might have to look at others. Anyway, nice to be part of your community. Regards Shaun
  6. Hi everyone. My name is Bob and I live in Surrey, England in the UK (Soon to no longer be part of the "EU"). One of my part-time hobbies is photography and recently, due to a prostate infection, I had been off work for several months. This gave me the opportunity to watch plenty of You Tube videos about drones, the different types, brands and the do's and don'ts of flying etc. I settled on a DJI Phantom 3 Standard as my first venture into the hobby. May get a bigger, better one later on. I have bought 2 extra batteries (official ones) and a gimbal/camera guard. I had a couple of small "incidents" at low level and luckily onto soft bushes and grass so no damage other than green scars on blades. I'm going to France for D Day events again this year and this was one of the reasons wanted to buy one. I'm hoping to get written permission from the cemetary at Omaha for some shots, and will be contacting French Aviation Authority to get official guidelines for useage in France. Any experience or tips most gratefully received. Cheers all Bob
  7. Hi all, Whilst I have no ambition to become a professional, I am still keen to keep up to date on UAV innovation and also to keep on top of legislation that is relevant to the places where I wish to fly.
  8. Hi my name is Iain from the Stonehaven in the North East of Scotland. I initialy bought a used 450 quadcopter a couple of years ago then gave that away and built my own 450 and recently built a 550 Hexacopter using DJI NAZA V2 controller and E300 motors. I have always had a keen interest in Model aircraft from many moons ago and very involved with photography and saw the drones(I must admit I hate that description) as a way to get some different images from different viewpoints. However, I still view myself very much as a newbie as I have not had much flying experience. At the moment i am modifying my Hex to take a 4S battery and fit a new 3D gimbal with a gopro hero 4 black to try some video filming. Always open to new ideas and advice on how to imporve the stability of the camera in flight.
  9. Hi All New to the forum, I have been interested in the role of UAV within Technology for a long tome, especially for the potential to provide messed communications networks for disaster areas, at the moment I was thinking of the current earth quake in Italy. However it seems communications is still a way off (please correct me if I'm wrong) .. but the use of UAV for surveying within construction and Mining is a very health market, one question I have particularly on Mapping software. Is there a current mapping software that would recognize Japanese knot-weed. The interesting fact in the UK most construction companies have to take soil samples to ensure it is not present, if they find it is present then its a large cost to excavate approx 3 ft of the upper layer of soil and replace the soil before building can commence. If we are looking at specific areas for digital mapping with the construction sector this could be a good a real potential. Regards Buzz
  10. Hi all, I have recently started a new job with a company that is producing the next generation of drones. Without giving too much away, our drones will significantly increase the flight time, distance and payload capabilities that that restrict existing drones. Our drones will also be able to withstand greater environmental conditions i.e. higher wind and heavier rainfall. As with existing drones, our next generation drone can be used in a multitude of markets from sports, film & entertainment recording, commercial, search & rescue, Inspection, emergency response, Oil & Gas, renewable energy, delivery companies etc. I would like to hear from anyone that has came across operations that have been restricted by current drone limitations or who may have an application that our technological advances would be advantageous. Regards Chris
  11. Hi all, Just a quick hello from the UK. Looking to connect with other's from around the World. Cheers, Steve FAA Dispatch Instructor
  12. Hi, I am a fairly new drone user and have a DJI Phantom 3 Standard. I am very interested in photography which is the reason I bought this particular model of drone. I am interested particularly to hear from other P3S users to gain any advice which will help me as well as sharing any information I have to help others. My main drive is always to fly safely within our own CAA guidelines and as I visit Texas fairly r=frequently, to abide by FAA regulations. If anybody wants a chat, please contact me. Fly safe!!
  13. Hi all, haven't flown yet! but looking to start really soon with a Phantom 4 i think. Looking round for some beginner courses before buying. michael
  14. Just joined. I am a retired surveyor interested in the use of drones for the inspection of high buildings and structures; also in connection with ground survey. Looking to learn and welcoming tips and advice Waiting for delivery of a Hubsan 502S
  15. Just introdfucing myself as a new memberwho may be slightly different from the rest. My interest in drones has been sparked by my disability. I am trying to learn to fly them so I can take my camera where I cannot go myself (which is most places nowadays) allowing me to continue my hobby and old profession to some extent. I have started to learn using simulators on my Mac and iPad, as well as using a real life one, the Syma X5C . Yes I do have a long way to go, especially as I want to pass the CAA PFAW and then I feel I can teach other disabled people to use the drones to give them more freedom. Living on the borders of the Lake District national park means that it is often wet, and frequently windy, but I try and fly my toy inside when I can just to get used to the various aspects of using one. Any advice, help or just chat would be welcome especially from other disabled flyers. Mike
