  1. DJI Mavic Pro for sale. Includes Extended Flight Combo, The Original DJI Carrying Bag plus a $129 Lowe Pro Viewpoint Bag ($129) that is brand new. Over $1430 of gear Total. Asking $1300 Total. I got it to film stuff for my blog but just ended up hiring photographers as I tend to be in the videos and it's a bit hard to be both in front of + behind the camera at the same time. I've flown this thing like two times. I have barely used it. It's in great condition and perfect for someone who wants a great machine at a discount. Would like to do an in-person dropoff/pickup, but flexible depending on the buyer. I will upload photos later tonight. Happy to answer any questions you might have.
  2. Hi everyone! The time is finally here!! We just opened up our beta program for Airilo Connect. The next step is that you finally get to start using it. We are going to open this first test up to 20 videographers. If you have interest, please respond IMMEDIATELY because we are offering spots on a first come, first serve basis. Just respond to this post with anything that shows interest like "YES" or "I'm in!!" and fill out this survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/XG2XSG5 We can't wait to start working with all of you. Even if you end up not making the first 20 spots, we're opening more up quickly so don't worry. Cheers, Matt
  3. At Airilo, we believe in the power of collaboration. We developed a network of drone pilots that stretches across the country in order to offer exceptional videos to real estate agents and vacation rental owners. This network allows us to efficiently deliver our products, but it also provides inspiration for new and better ways of doing business. Especially in real estate videography, we saw sharing videos with clients and getting paid in a timely manner as a common pain point. I can attest to the hassle of emailing Youtube links to share videos with clients, sending Dropbox folders to download the video files and using Paypal to invoice clients only to have to manually remind them if they are slow to pay. I yearned for a platform that would allow me to automatically share videos with clients after I uploaded them and allow clients to download the videos only after they had paid for them. This sentiment was echoed by many other drone pilots. Thus, the idea for Airilo Connect was born. We are currently working on a platform that brings together scheduling, video review, file transfer, and billing so that drone operators don’t have to waste time piecing together multiple programs. In the end, we aim to provide a complete solution for client interaction, product delivery and billing, allowing drone operators to focus on what they do best: providing stunning videos. In the next several months, we will be opening up the beta program for Airilo Connect. The first phase will allow drone pilots to upload their videos and share an online version with their clients and enable clients to download the video after a payment has been made. Even in this basic form, we hope to save drone operators time by automating the sharing and file transfer process and get them paid faster by requiring payment before download. As the beta program progresses, we will add scheduling features, photography and virtual tour sharing capabilities and an automated project management system. Throughout this process we would love feedback on what features you are most intrigued by as well as what features you think should be added. We are excited for this beta program to be the beginning of a conversation about what tools we can provide to best serve all of you. We will initially be inviting people to test Airilo Connect based on when they sign up for the beta program. If you would like to sign up for the beta program click here. We will keep you updated on our progress and will notify you when you have been chosen to be a product tester. I look forward to working with all of you because good things come from working together. Sincerely, Matt Rafferty
  4. Alan You sent out a email about the company Drone Base. I was excited about not having to go out and find customers. I logged in as a pilot on Drone Base and started looking into how this business model works. Drone Base gives lots of information about how they work, one grade that caught my attention was "potential to get paid". Long story short all of the jobs shown on the map are generated by MLS data (Homes for sale), I could not find one paying client job marked on the U.S. Map. I'm personally not going to waste my time taking and uploading stock footage to a website without a client for 2 reasons. 1. I'm "potentially" (90% sure) not getting paid. 2. As a commercial drone business and not having a signed release/contract for the job these MLS generated job locations present issues. The owner of the property is rightfully going to know why a drone is circling his property. Also in my neck of the woods (Los Angeles) someone will at some point call the police and their going to want to see some sort of documentation on the job. So although I love the idea of Drone Base until they get some actual cleints I see "potential" trouble for us.
  5. Hey Pilots! I had to do some airspace research for an upcoming and I found this great resource for drone airspace that is administered directly from the FAA. Here is the link: https://faa.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=9c2e4406710048e19806ebf6a06754ad What I like about it is that it tells you: 1. Airspace Class 2. The Ceiling 3. Associated Airport (in case you need to call in) 4. And if it is LAANC ready or not ready I hope this helps pilots in the field and those that are studying for their Part 107 test. Let me know your thoughts below. Best,
  6. Hi all, just trying to pick your brains a little bit. What do you think is the average number of flight hours at which you would consider someone an experienced drone pilot? How many flight hours would make someone an expert? @Alan Perlman Since you deal with so many pilots, would love to get what you think too!

    Dronfest 2019

    A unique festival of unmanned aviation which ranks among the largest events of its kind in the world! 1. and 2. June 2019. in Pilsen, Czech Republic.
  9. This is a question and not an answer. Also, it is not a challenge to real estate drone photographers, but rather a possible opportunity to illustrate the ways in which they are useful that most people would miss. I'm just curious about what added value a home buyer or real estate buyer would get out of drone media taken of their potential property? What should they be looking for in drone media that they could not see in any other way? For example, what does the neighbor's yard look like? Roofing flaws? Proximity to railroad tracks and busy roads? Proximity to industrial parks? I would like to see an article outlining the special benefits of drone media to the home or real estate buyer. These answers could also be useful to news media drone photographers as well. What could the reader look for in drone photos that they would not think about finding any other way?
  10. Hey Everybody, I see there a lot of new drone pilots joining the community, one of my earliest struggles in the industry was actually buying a drone! I made a video and wrote an article about a couple of things you need to consider before buying your first prosumer drone. Below is the video and here is the article: https://dronexcaptain.com/2018/11/26/so-you-want-to-buy-a-drone-things-to-consider-first/ If you find any of this information of any value please let me know in the forum comment section. Also, UAV Coach has a great and in-depth guide for professional drone models (2018) on their website. Check it out here: https://uavcoach.com/professional-drones/ Best,

  13. Greetings fellow pilots, first post here. I usually just read what Alan sends out and move on. Today's email included some talk about how it's impossible to fly drones in national parks. I am here to tell you that this is untrue. With proper permitting you CAN not only fly, but record video and photos too. I received permitting and commissioned flights for 23 campgrounds within the Coconino National Forest in Arizona during the fall of 2017, producing video and photographs for the campground websites. Just call the permitting contact for the National Forest and request a permit application. You will need to provide detailed flight plans, proof of insurance that includes the United States of America as "additionally insured", and a reason for flying/ filming that convinces the ranger in charge that the permit is worthy of being issued.

    WORK! WORK! WORK!

    Where are all the drone jobs at???? Where can I get real estate drone jobs? Energy Jobs? Etc???
  15. Want to test the drone using and zigbee module communciating in raspberry pi, Whenever there will be shortage of power it will check the range and calculate the distance between remote and itself and comeback in time so that it will not power off and while this method is working other methods will get stop for that time, I am new to code this kind of solutions, so any suggestions to make this kind of work useful will be very helpful.

    Hybrid Drone with 6 hours of flight time

    At the moment drones could fly only several minutes, but imagine if you get hours and hours of flight time, imagine if you get 5 kg of payload, this will be useful for thousands of purposes, from delivering humanitarian aid to package delivery. Finally, we can get it. First hybrid system for drones was designed at NASA and it's really similar to what we are doing here (you can see the NASA system here: Basically, it's an alternator connected to a gas motor, it is very similar to the system that is improved in your car to keep the lights on, the difference is that it's thousand times lighter. This is the project of the generator The gas motor has a power of 3hp that is transmitted to a brushless sensored brushless motor, the current then passes through the diode bridge rectifier and a tension regulator, then charge the batteries. This generator can provide for 2Kw, this is enough to sustain the entire drone systems and lift also 5 Kg of additional payload If you want to stay informed about my project please sign in this newsletter: http://eepurl.com/cUJnJr

Fuel consumption: 800g/kwh Generator weight: 1600g Accessories weight: 150g (backup battery) Generator dimensions: 21 x 16 x 9 cm Can be mounted on standard 12 or 10 mm standard tubes for gymbal support or any other support on REQUEST. All our carbon fiber parts are CNC made. You can buy one from here https://sandwichdrones.it/products/gs-1000-hybrid-generator
  22. I'm about to enter the work force, but I would like to do freelance drone work for my community in addition to my daily career. What tips do you have for getting your name out there, attracting employers or branding yourself as a responsible drone operator? Thanks!
  23. If you can't laugh when things go terribly wrong, you may have a bad attitude. Best is to change the attitude. Anyway, I wish I woulda. Famous last words. I wish I would have practiced with the simulator before I crashed the drone from the treetop. A word to the wise. This video is an attempt at humor and a successful attempt at a comeback. https://youtu.be/oMGqkQ-oksg Stan
