  1. Hi folks, I finished designing a quadcopter drone in a CAD software with a 3 axis gimbal assembled at the bottom, and I have to admit that i am excited to see this flying. I know the costs of 3D printing and electronics would be pretty high, so before moving on to its construction, I was wondering if any of you drone gigs and enthusiast have any thoughts on my drone that you would like to share. Feel free to comment below if you think there are areas in the design that are vulnerable to failure. https://a360.co/3cNar3D Cheers,
  2. Hello UAVcoach community! I am probably as new as they come. Have flown a few hobbyist drones but that is about it. I am from Arizona by the way. A year ago I met a guy who started a drone business and it blew my mind how his company was using drones in the construction industry. I am seriously considering starting a career in the drone industry more specifically inspection and development (Ground mapping). I think I have a solid understanding of the training, certifications, software’s, and equipment required to become a qualified drone pilot in the drone inspection field but before I take a leap spending the money and time to get there I would like to better understand the job opportunities currently out there. I know there is a lot of freelance opportunities like DroneBase but what about full-time jobs with companies? I know it is a new technology that is still being adopted but are there companies out there actually hiring drone operators? Is it better to start freelance to build a portfolio before trying to get hired by a company? It would be great to hear the story of anyone who has gone through this journey and works in an inspection or development field with drones, or just some good advice on where to start. Great to meet the community!
  3. Hi all,I'm planning to do some offshore flying from the Big Island in 2020 and I'm looking for some local knowledge so I can better plan my trip.1. Are there times of the year that I should avoid flying because of weather/wind? 2. I've read some threads about taking off/landing from boats, what is the feasibility of doing this off of the Big Island (I've got a Mavic 2 Pro)?3. Any other useful tips for flying around the Big Island? I know the national parks and such are off limits, but I'm curious as to the difficulty of gaining approval to fly in airport airspace. Thanks for the help!
  4. I am about to purchase the Phantom 4 Pro for a pilot for a tv show. I've never shot with a drone before and was wondering if there might be any advice, tips, and or warnings before I make this purchase. I also have a film that I plan on using a few drone shots for this spring. Thanks again for your thoughts. - Brian 4 Bees Media, LLC
  5. Hello UAV CCF. A UAV pilot from South Africa here! I was wondering if anyone could provide any recommendations on hand-held radios for use with drone operations? We wish to use radios on the ground to communicate with air traffic to ensure safe operations. I have been searching various pilot shops for radios but the range is huge and so is the price! Obviously I would like to make sure we get the best option for our operations. Any guidance on the best option/best value for money would be a great help. Thanks.
  6. Hey guys my name is Dan and I am brand new to this site, forum, and everything drone! I am extremely excited about all things drone and I am very eager to learn. I am hoping to connect with others in the community here as I have no experience and roughly 7645333872 questions. I live in Chicago and consider myself about one of the most outgoing people ever. If you have any questions for me ask anything anytime. In hopes of getting some basic info out of the way so you know where my head is at, I have been spending a lot of time reading and researching and dreaming for about 2 years now and I think the time has come to go for this. It is my dream to own my own drone photography and videography business one day and get FAA licensed on August 29th when the test is available. I am looking to start small, gain a customer base, and one day go full time and live my dream. As for right now, I am taking things one step at a time and trying to make sure I can pass the test and get licensed on August 29th before I waste a ton of money on expensive equipment. Next will be forming an LLC, and then really going for it. I am looking to start with a DJI Phantom 3 to get myself going and learn and practice, with the eventual goal of getting a Phantom 4 or probably the 5 will be out by the time I am ready to do that. Unless Xiaomi comes to the US with something mind blowing, I am extremely convinced DJI has the best stuff for the money and what I am looking to do. I would love to hear any thoughts or recommendations concerning DJI if anyone wants to throw in any input. Especially from anyone who owns DJI themselves or lives near me in Chicago! Thanks so much for reading this long ass post, I would love to get to know you guys!
