  1. G'day! My name is Darren and I live in Perth, Australia. I got into drones because I wanted to build my autonomous boat for bathymetric surveys. When I discovered how easy off-the-shelf drones were to fly, I was hooked! Now I work for Soar, a company delivering an online marketplace for drone, aerial, and satellite images. Cheers!
  2. Hi everyone from the Sunshine Coast Australia! My goal is to share my knowledge and bring you all up to speed - I know NOTHING - you are now up to speed!!! And that is my status - I know nothing - well, pretty much as I don't think having owned a Spark for a week and taken it for a spin around the garden about five times (albeit without mishap admittedly) counts for very much......But we have a farm and so when this patch of rain ends am going to put it through its paces. Thought I would start with a Spark as not a massive investment if I bury it in the side of a hill or put it into a dam. Keen to soak it all up. My reading of forum posts to date indicate a lot of people out there with a lot of knowledge which kind of makes me feel like it's my first year at pre-school. Anyhow, I'm currently researching tablets and I have boiled it down to the Samsung Galaxy TAB S3 (no no, not the S2) - I hope there will be no howls of disagreement with this choice but be honest if you feel I should be warned. My goal is to start droning as a hobby (and some practical applications as part of that) and see where it takes me. I have always loved videography - maybe just maybe doing drone filming might add the "spark" needed to take things a bit further with that. Looking forward to the adventure and getting my wings.
  3. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/watch-as-a-drone-saves-two-teen-swimmers-from-heavy-surf_us_5a60be9ee4b062a7df0ba47b More and more of these kinds of things are popping up. Two thousand feet offshore (about 610 meters). Launch it, fly it, and drop the flotation device in about two minutes. Two lives saved. Exciting. Stan Nickel
  4. What a terrific website! Many thanks and congratulations to all those involved. As a technology tragic, I can't stop myself from following where UAV and imaging innovations are heading. My current business here in Sydney is in business events and exhibitions. I am a newbie when it comes to drones but would like to think there may be some exciting opportunities ahead. Looking forward to getting involved and learning more.
  5. I am based in Australia and have a keen desire to enter the drone services industry here in Australia. I have been researching the industry, and I am particular impressed with the Drone Base model in the US and believe a similar model would work extremely well here in Australia. Last year I sold my business Smoke Alarm Solutions. Commencing from no employees, we grew to 230 employees, servicing 220,000 homes, attending more than 1,000 homes every day. I am now wishing to apply my proven skills to a new business, and a business in the drone industry has great appeal. I have no drone experience and no photography experience, so at this stage my preference is to acquire or invest in an existing business. There are hundreds of drone businesses in Australia, most of them small, and there is as much potential here as there is in the US, albeit on s smaller scale given our population. I am interested in speaking with any existing companies operating in the US in the drone service industry that may be interested in expanding into Australia. I am a business builder with a proven track record and a brilliant marketer, and I know we could make a well-structured drone company highly successful in Australia. Anyone out there interested?
  6. Hi from Australia, great to see an active forum with quality content. Have been involved in drones for around 5 years, built , repaired, flown and owned including Phantom 2, DJI f550, DJI F450, Blade 350QX, Yuneec, Currently use Inspire1 and DJI Phantom 4 Pro for commercial ops. Like the US, Australia's drone laws are in constant flux, here we are seeing some reasonable laws coming in, especially for commercial ops. Looking forward to learning and contributing.
  7. R2 D2

    My intro

    Hi, my name is R2 D2 because r2 was a drone/droid. i have only flown a helicopter and a plane but crashed it at once (don't worry it was just a UAV!). I am going do get a drone for christmas i hope i won't crash it! But with a community like this there is little chance of that! Hope to learn more about drones here!
  8. Hi, My name is Ranveer, Electronics tech and hobbyist and currently working in IT repairs. I am very happy to be here and look forward to have fun gaining help and eventually help where i can with my experience. Just got my first Quad; the MJX X101. If you guys have any info about this quad, i would like to hear from you and i will also share my experience with this drone. Thanks every one here and hope you have a great day. Ranveer.
  9. Just a quick intro rom myself..... I am a licenced UAV pilot and I am presently flying a Cinestar8 but hoping to expand the equipment side of things in the not too distant future. I have had my licence for about 12 months, almost exactly now I think about it and I have been flying UAV's for three years all up. anything else anyone wants to know then just yell out.... thanks Niall
  10. Finally got to shoot some mountain biking. I would love to get your feedback.
  11. http://www.flightsafetyaustralia.com/2016/03/casa-to-cut-drone-red-tape/ Taking effect from 29 September 2016 commercial operators flying RPAs weighing less than two kilograms will not require an operator’s certificate or a remote pilot licence. I feel this is a bit of a kick in the guts. CASA have almost done a complete backflip on an over regulated industry to almost none at all. Soon the sky's of Australia will be filled with Phantom 4 and their pilots have not had any training or certification. During my training I learnt a lot about the aviation industry and how drones and manned aircraft interact. Basically these changes mean that drone operators with drones less than 2kg can fly without this knowledge. The other harsh reality is that an operator’s certificate costs somewhere between $5,000-$10,000 (AUD) and a remote pilot licence around $3,000 (AUD). So, those operators with Phantoms or other drones <2kg who just went through the 6 month process and forked out at least $10,000 are now told they didn't need to! I really think that all commercial drone operators should have to at least do some form of training i.e. remote pilot licence
  12. Hi, I'm a 67 year old IT contractor from Tyers in Victoria, Australia. I am self employed and specialise in writing specialist software for small-medium businesses. A current example is an interface between a weighbridge and Reckon for a local sand pit. I've just purchased a DJI Phantom 3 and am learning to fly it. I'm exploring the idea of using it for industrial/ agricultural inspections. Tyers is located in the Latrobe Valley, an area with extensive mining, electricity generating and farming businesses. Becoming licensed for commercial work is somewhat expensive in Australia, so I want to ensure I have the proper flying skills and that there's a sufficient customer base and demand before I follow the commercial route. I'm not particularly interested in doing things like wedding videos, but will not rule out any reasonable idea. Even unreasonable ideas will be considered! I'd like to explore how to use the DJI SDK (software development kit) for development of software tools to assist flying and management of images. At the moment I'm really just exploring ideas. Pat
