  1. I operate a 3D mapping company that conducts surveys and designs for solar projects. I'm looking for drone pilots with electrical experience, who are interested in conducting site surveys. Among several tasks, you must be comfortable removing the cover of an electrical box. We are looking to work with pilots around the United States and have an immediate need in New York State, specifically near Utica and Corning/Elmira. If you're interested, please email me at Jason.Steinberg@scanifly.com. In your email, please include your resume and/or why you are qualified for the project.
  2. Hi all, got a great email from someone in our community and wanted to crowdsource a response: Thoughts? I know Sentera sells a DJI upgrade package. And I've heard about companies like Agrobotix and Drone Nerds, the latter selling add-on cameras, but I don't have direct experience with either company.

  5. Hi everyone, I hope you're having a great Friday. I'm a Part 107-certified Remote Pilot and freelance marketing consultant. I work with Flying Robot international Film Festival, Drone360 Magazine, DroneDeploy, and the forthcoming Wedding Drones. Check out my photos/videos - http://instagram.com/karaemurphy Website: http://karaemurphy.co I'll likely be posting about all things except for drone racing.
  6. This is a tutorial video of the Ground Control Station software of the SNIPER, Visionair. Check how easy is to prepare missions with the Auto-Grid Generation tool. Agriculture, mining or search & rescue, this tool is helpfull in any type of mission. Visit our website at www.alphaunmannedsystems.com or check our social media.
  7. I am new to this group and have a question for anyone knowledgable about how drones use elevation data in their flights. Is it loaded into the software onboard the UAV? What data is currently available and used. And would very specific elevation data of the ground surface area along with obstacles present be of any value in that process? Here is what I am talking about .It is a collaboration between Lufthansa and Intermap Technologies in creating a global database for Drone/ UAV usage called NextView. The data specifications are listed at the bottom... https://www.intermap.com/aviation-survace-data Thanks in advance as I don't know (but am trying to learn quickly) all the nuances involved with a wildly growing industry.

  8. Some stories just break your heart on every level, like this tragic one. When I was doing aerial photography in the mountains, the battery suddenly ran out. What a terrible thing! Then my friend recommended the following battery for backup https://www.gensace.de/ Anybody heard of that? They are really offer a wide array of benefits, including compact size, greater capacity, and long runtime. I would be happy to recommend it here, They've been doing Christmas sales lately. Hope to have other used friends continue to share here.
  9. 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.
  10. Ok so as I embark on this new faze of my career I’m very exited to hear all your stories and advice. At 55 years of age this will be my 3rd career, the first one was in aviation and the 2nd was in email marketing design, development and execution. Now it’s my turn to do something I’ve always loved. If all goes well I’ll be a commercial drone pilot by the end of the year!!!
  11. I am in the processing of contacting the FAA about an idea I think may be of interest to drone pilots. I would like to see one day a week or month whereby drone pilots would be permitted to fly missions commercially or for enjoyment in our National Parks. It is a shame that with all the drone pilots, we are prohibited from photographing some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. Recently I was at an event at a State Park that prohibits drones. However, they allowed a vendor in with one of the noisiest generators I have ever heard. All the excuses for not allowing drones in our National or State Parks are weak. When a drone is two or three hundred feet up, you cannot hear it and very likely unseen by man or animal. And there is very little chance of a crash into people. How do we change the laws?
  12. Where are all the drone jobs at???? Where can I get real estate drone jobs? Energy Jobs? Etc???
  13. 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!
  14. How do you organize your gear for a commercial job? What does your field setup look like? Is there any safety-related measurement you are taking? Please share photos if you can
  15. The article mentions 1500 pound drones. Probably a new class of certification will be available as well. Other applications and further relaxation of drone laws for commercial use in other areas are also mentioned in the article. https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/16/florida-county-to-battle-mosquitoes-through-federal-drone-program.html

  17. Here is a drone spectacle. Imagine controlling all of these at once without any computer coordination. Couldn't do it. Must be a fun project. https://www.msn.com/en-us/video/peopleandplaces/watch-1374-drones-dance-across-the-sky-over-ancient-chinese-city/vi-AAwDm1Z?ocid=se Stan

  19. I have splash drone 3 fishermen. It is waterproof, floats and has a 4k camera that can see underwater more effective, easy to control and long battery backups. This is a good option for beginners.
  20. I am a professional photographer who looking for something new and exciting. I am a navy veteran who has aviation experience. I bought some cheap drone and found them to be starter drones where you learned to fly. I have now gotten a drone with many features including GPS, intelligent tracing, headless mode, fencing, low battery return, lost control return, precision hold, follow me mode and more. It also carries a camera, which cam be adjusted up or down. it has FPV. As I move forward with my expertise in flying drones, I thought it may be exciting to move forward and get a commercial Pilots certificate. My entire government career, both Navy and DOD was in aviation. I was always interested in becoming a pilot, but I am passed that in my life but the Drones have caught my attention
  21. I am looking for advice on building a water surface drone for bay and estuary survey. This would not be different from a mapping aerial drone, except it doesn't have to fly. A large battery is no problem, so all day observations could easily be made. Requirements: FPV, gps, camera--[the GoPro Hero 4 has been recommended], possibly collision avoidance--[fishermen's nets, their canoes, mangroves, etc], controller with Large monitor screen, gps grid overlay, pre-programmed waypoint following required, radius of survey away from controller not to exceed one mile--- more likely a hundred to a few hundred meters, a depth sounder capable of storing gps position, time and depth --either on a S/B card, or internally for later transfer with cable to computer. Depths usually in the less than 100 meter range-- the majority in the 2 to 20 meter range Making the floats, installing the equipment is the easy part-- I have no idea where to buy the component parts, or exactly WHAT to buy. Propulsion would be through a twin screw servo motors, [ one in each of the mini catamaran hulls], as well as dual rudder control. Operating speed 4 knots, [8 m/sec], would be ideal. This could be accomplished with two servo 12 vdc motor turning the correct rpm. Variable rpm required. The camera would be mounted about 4 feet above the water to reduce spray effect. the hulls would each be about 4 inches in beam, [with overall beam of 4 feet], and max of 6 to 8 inches depth, and about 8 feet long. A very easily driven hull form for minimum resistance. the electric/electronic components would be housed in a small water tight pod about 18 inches above the water. Recording would be done in less than 18 knots of wind, preferably less than 10 knots. Wave formation would then not be a problem. The mother boat is a 21 foot survey/utility boat now operating in survey work as was done a hundred years ago--- I wish to update, simplify, and reduce errors--[mostly human], in this survey activity. Any help is more than welcome-- Alan Perleman has been very patient in answering my questions, but has referred me to this forum hoping to find someone who has the answers. Thanks in advance, Don Cameron . email: bonzarto@gmail.com I am in the Philippines which limits my options for the acquisition of reliable information and the purchase of the components. I have no problem in the assembly of this project----dc
  22. A very quick Google search turns up a number of articles where there are studies of the noisy drones and some mapping of where they go, etc. I'm thinking that if the noise of the drone itself could be filtered out electronically or mechanically, it would be very useful to have sound-mapping equipment carried by a drone. This would be particularly useful for search and rescue operations where cries for help could be pinpointed. No visuals can do this job. I could imagine people who carry emergency whistles on hikes could be found by such a drone. Maybe dual visual-sonic mapping would be possible. Another idea is to use such a service for realtors. Some people like me like to live in a quiet neighborhood. I sure would like to know what sounds I would be subjected to when I move to a neighborhood. For one thing, builders tend to hide railroad tracks behind a layer or two of trees, and until people move there, they have no idea that the train comes roaring through at 4 a.m. Or trucking or emergency vehicles. Any noise maker. Does anyone have any thoughts or perhaps even have experience with this idea? Stan
  23. Hi everyone, My friend, Devon, put together this brilliant resource on Ground Control Points. You don't need them most of the time but when you do, it's worth it to get it right. That's detailed here, as well. Check it out. https://blog.dronedeploy.com/when-to-use-ground-control-points-2d404d9f5b15
  24. I am a highly motivated college student eager to learn about Drone Flight as a possible career choice. I would love to intern at a drone company for a summer to gain experience in this field. Could anyone recommend companies eager to hire interns for summer employment in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
