Hello, I have started a business and am getting a drone soon. I will be using the drone 50% of the time for personal hobby use and 50% of the time as a business tool. Should I get drone insurance? If so, what would be the best route to take for that? My other question is that I don't have a ton of money to spend, but don't want to get a crappy drone. I have a good friend who has multiple 3dr solo drones that he doesn't fly and is going to sell me one at a very good price. Would you recommend the 3dr solo as a starter drone? If so, why? If not, why? If not, what would you recommend? If I could afford it I would LOVE to get a Mavic Pro. Thanks for the input!
I have updated my Solo . 1. mRo GPS u-Blox Neo-M8N (Release 2) http://store.mrobotics.io/category-s/109.htm 2. Solo GPS Shield V2 First the GPS was made for the Solo it was an easy, remove the original and connect the version 2. There are others out there that would work, however it requires soldering new connectors. The GPS from mrobotics should have been in the production release of Solo. Also the GPS shield Ver 2 is icing on the cake. After I upgraded and powered up I had lock in a few seconds with 7-9 SATS. That was while I was indoors in my office. Cannot wait to see how this works outdoors. From product review on various forums we are talking about 19-20+ SATs. Note: When I ordered it said out of stock. However less then two days I had an email with confirmation and tacking number. "I always use PayPal, well protected".
Hello All, So I currently have a beginner UAS (UDI 818A HD+), and am looking at the next level to get ready for the business launch in the near future. I am primarily interested in Real Estate and Commercial services, but want to be able to expand into agricultural, 3D mapping, and other services, in the near future. I was looking at the MARIP camera and saw they were primarily a 3DR Solo company due to being able to mount multiple cameras on the airframe. Are there any recommendations for which is the "better" next step, or are they equivalent? Any recommendations on how to branch out and learn the system and how to process the data? I've looked at several sites on 3D mapping, and other things, but want to know how people branched out in this area. Should I stop thinking about this and just get the business up and running? I personally think between USFS, and other agricultural needs in the area, this could be a good area to become an expert in. Any other tips, tricks, or downfalls people have run into when branching out? Thanks in advance for all information...Respectfully, Joe
3DR just announced that v2.0 of their Solo software is live. Puhreeeetty cool:
