  1. Hi from Piper in Northern California! Our two companies, Leading Edge Aerial Technologies and Leading Edge Associates, Inc, are expanding (yaay!) and we would like some recommendations on how to find experienced pilots to hire. Since we are one of the very few commercial UAS companies in the US that perform aerial applications (i.e. spraying) by unmanned aerial systems and we work in many states, we fit into a very unique category when it comes to the drone business. Having worked in the mosquito control industry for over 30 years, we have focused our efforts in vector control which is ve
  2. Greetings. After many years as a photographer and an RC CP Helicopter Pilot, I've finally put the 2 together to start a new venture. I'm interested in piloting for just about anything at this time, but I intend to get into inspection and agricultural survey, or emergency response. I was a remote duty medic for the Commercial Deep Sea Diving industry, and have worked in Emergency Medical Services for most of my adult life in one capacity or another, usually as a volunteer. I'm in the process of forming a new company to provide my services.
  3. Hello everyone! My name is Frank Lovering and I've been flying drones over 3 years now and passed the initial 107 Certification Test 2 years ago plus the 2nd test 2 months ago. All of my experience has been on DJI drones (P4, Inspire 1v2 and now a Mavic 2 Pro). I'm interested in learning about surveying with the new DJI P4 RTK, the Mavic 2 Pro for Search and Rescue and the Matrice 200 for Ag purposes. And also interested in learning how to fly tiny whoops and race drones. I'm in Yakima, WA. Would love to know where to look for folks using drones professionally and for racing!
  4. Hey everybody. I have an idea that I'm just trying to get some feedback on and consult the experts here on UAV applications. Im in the cleaning and restoration business and a common challenge we face all the time is applying powdered zinc to the ridge lines on roofs for moss control. Most of the time, its not a big deal to get a guy up on the roof with a ladder and get it done but there is a significant number of houses were the pitch/steepness of the roof makes it a huge safety hazard to send our guys up to apply it manually. My question to you all is whether it would be possible to
  5. Hey all, I'm amazed at how many great drone videos are out on YouTube now, even within in a sub-category like agriculture/farming. Any thoughts/suggestions/experiences on how to make drone videos stand out from the pack and ultimately attract more views? (My latest farming vlog is below for reference of what I am already doing.)
  6. About six months ago a friend Sam (not his real name) at my local Men's Shed somewhere in the central wheat belt of Western Australia told me the story of how his daughter was flying her drone in Wylie (not the real name but close) when it apparently was starting to get out of control and just as she was losing sight of the craft, she pressed the RTH button with the expectations of the machine magically returning to her and landing at her feet, but NO! ~ The Drone stopped, raised up, then flew toward White Elephant Dam (it's real name -31°09'52.4"S 117°21'53.0"E), flying somewhere over the m
  7. Hello, it's a pleasure to e-meet you! I stumbled upon this community while researching for fellow enthusiasts working with drones in the agriculture sector and noticed that there are some forum discussions related to this topic. I am co-founder of AgroHelper and we recently released a web platform that converts drone captured images of farm fields into actionable crop health data. You can learn more here. To give you a bit of additional background: we are a team of 3 co-founders, enthusiasts based in Bulgaria, we don’t have any employees or funding. We all have day jobs and we
  8. Hi everyone, I am an American living 30 years in Tokyo. I want to in several years semi retire to start a drone business here, probably largely focused on agriculture. Demand is strong here due to technology shortages and population declines. I will likely lurk here. I need ideas on drones/software to buy, and on how to run a business. I am a moderately experienced hobby pilot of a Spark but will look to upgrade of course if I push into business. Soon of course I will get a commercial license—several schools have opened of late.
  9. Hi everyone my name is Chris and I'm a 107 certified uav pilot. I've recently opened an llc and have began my journey into operating and growing a business focused on every aspect of quadcopters! Currently I'm shooting videos for car dealerships and real estate. I love flying my quadcopters and want to venture into more meaningful work with my drones. Agriculture has been in my sites for awhile now. I feel I can have a huge impact in the field (pun intended) and want to feel my business can impact the globe in vast ways. If anyone here is working directly with farmers and crop inspectors/pesti
  10. Hello everyone... First time poster... Are there any forum members who are involved in precision agriculture?? An evolving segment of my business is farm data management, including UAS gathered data, and I am interested in everyone opinion regarding the frequency of drone flights over planted fields. What stages of crop development need to be imaged? Do you image immediately following a weather event? In short, if you are the drone service provider for a farmer, when specifically do you go fly his field???
  11. My friend Lauren, who regularly kicks but at Drone360, wrote a great piece about a little-known rule. If you're working on the farm, you want to read this. http://drone360mag.com/rules-regulations/2017/06/part-137-agricultural-aircraft-the-drone-certification-youve-never-heard-of#.WULTFyeruGA.facebook
  12. Hey all, Happening tomorrow and free to join: an advanced webinar on how to analyze RGB and NIR drone imagery plus apply NDVI and VARI algorithms to calculate plant health in your fields. http://resources.dronedeploy.com/agriculture-drone-clinic-2

  14. Alan Perlman asks new members to introduce themselves, and here I am. I am a Graduate of the University of Dubuque's Aviation program and Aviation Advisory Board Member for them. My full time job is with John Deere, and in agriculture, there are certainly growing opportunities evolving. I am also looking at business opportunities within the drone industry form ag to real estate, not necessarily US based. I am amazed at how drones help in managing crops from pest control to nutrient management and storm damage assessment. I see in California, Yamaha utilizes large RC helicopters to spray s
  15. I am a senior in a MN high school looking at colleges and degrees for entering into the drone industries future. I would love to fly, but I wish not to spend $60,000 on getting an ATP or any other expensive certificate. I am just learning about the drone market. I do not own one, but I want to buy one and experience flying without the actual cockpit ordeal. I am wishing to enter into the drone industry and have a career in it, preferably on the agricultural side. I am struggling to find out what degrees I would need to get in college to be successful: agriculture degree, agronomist, or profes
  16. Located at the Volcani Center campus in Bet-Dagan, near Tel-Aviv, Agricultural Research Organization (ARO) six institutes are responsible for Plant Sciences, Animal Science, Plant Protection, Soil, Water and Environmental Sciences, Agricultural Engineering, and Postharvest and Food Sciences. ARO also operates four research stations, in various parts of the country, and serves as a testing center for agricultural produce and equipment. Israel's Gene Bank For Agricultural Crops is also located on the ARO Volcani Center campus. While encompassing the full range o
  17. So I am starting up a drone business on the side for doing crop scouting and working with insurance agencies. The problem I am seeing so far is that some farmers have bought their own with filtered gopros or something similar for NDVI imagery. How do I approach these farmers and explain that what they are doing is in fact illegal as none of them have gone out and completed the necessary requirements for commercial use of their drones. I have even heard from a crop dusting pilot that drones were flying over the SAME fields as they were trying to spray! My question is the approach and th
  18. Hi Everyone, Found this place in my many many google searches and research on UAVs. I am strongly considering starting a business in my area flying UAVs for farmers. I know its fairly new still and a lot of the farmers question the ROI on UAV vs basic Satellite imagery. Starting out it will have to be a side business as I learn my way around and attempt to understand what the farmers will truly need and how I can best help them. New to drones and Ag, but I am always reading and learning new things so I am up for the challenge!
  19. Sigma1.JPG This picture consists of two shots, stitched together horizontally using the Canon stitch ware. The 1080p camera doses not have the capabilities my canon 35mm doses. So you have to take a lot more pictures trying to over lap them a bit, and line them up It was even harder with the wind pushing the quad around.
  20. Hi Everyone, For a few months, I've been involved in creating a huge UAV news site, packed with original interviews, great stories and all the best vids that we could find online. I thought you guys might be interested to see it, and would love some feedback on the site. You can see it here: http://www.dronesfutureskies.com/ Thanks! Jack
