  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. This one of my best work of 2020 or should i say my "quarantine edits" completed last week, was also featured on the DJI website. please feel free to like and subscribe if you enjoyed it... many more to come.

  4. Hi, I have a school research project where I have to build a business intelligence report where I have to offer a new tech to help a business. Basically I need help finding a specific drone model that can hypothetically be used for “food delivery” to hypothetically help a business like door dash or something. (Unless anyone has a better idea) Anyone know any specific drone models that have UAV capabilities, has a carry weight of about 5lb, and basically is researchable. I need to find info regarding “architecture and mobility, design, standards, markets and regulations” so basically it has so be a “known” drone model to where I can easily find a lot of information about it. if anyone can help me find a specific model of drone, and if anyone can help provide resources or info in the areas I need to research. It would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance, I’m really stuck here and know very little about drones and honestly need help.
  5. Hi Everyone! I am new to the drone community and am interested in potentially building my own drone. I was curious to what alternatives there are to the traditional airframe platform based drones? Thanks!
  6. At mRobotics our commitment continues with the entire research, development and integration community and we want to announce that we are making several alliances with interesting companies for the UAV sector and as always to offer you hardware for integration, ready-to-use products and solutions. I want to share the press release that was made through sUASNews FlytBase, Inc. and Mayan Robotics, LLC have announced a partnership to support enterprises on the development of fully autonomous, cost-effective drone automation solutions that leverage open source technologies. As their drone operations move from manual to fully autonomous, businesses are looking for reliable, cost-effective, scalable hardware and software components that can seamlessly integrate into enterprise-grade solutions. The commercial drone industry is driven by regulatory progress and technology advancements – both of which are picking up pace as industries, governments and consumers all start to derive meaningful value from unmanned aerial vehicles. FlytBase, Inc. provides drone agnostic software solutions to automate and scale drone operations. The FlytBase technology platform allows easy deployment of intelligent drone fleets, connected with cloud-based business applications. FlytBase offerings are compatible with major drone hardware platforms (eg. DJI, Ardupilot, PX4) and come with SDKs, simulator and APIs for reliable testing and seamless integration. FlytBase customers range from sectors such as public safety and energy utilities to warehouses, distribution centres, and air cargo facilities. Mayan Robotics LLC specializes in the design and manufacture of essential electronic systems for unmanned vehicles, drones, and UAVs. With a focus on the best known open source and open hardware-based autopilots in the world, Mayan Robotics’ products are utilized by the largest civilian drone manufacturers, public and private aerospace research and development institutes and militaries across the globe. As US-based companies, both FlytBase and Mayan Robotics are excited about the rapid progress made by regulators on enabling drone flights at night, over crowds and beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS). With the ongoing FAA-approved integrated pilot programs, the commercial drone industry is poised to accelerate, driven by fully autonomous solutions that focus on specific use-cases in each sector. These range from outdoor solutions such as aerial inspections of oil & gas pipelines and wind turbines to indoor applications such as warehouse inventory management and mining. The first step towards enterprise drone applications was manually flown UAVs by drone operators and service providers. This has now matured to live drone operations, where a fleet of drones can be remotely managed, with live video feeds available over 4G/5G, and the ability to not only fly drones autonomously but also control the camera gimbal, set waypoints and geofences, share and archive image/video data on the cloud. With the availability of off-the-shelf, cost-effective drones, enterprises can now build a fleet with a minimal upfront investment and rapidly realize business value from aerial inspections, surveys, mapping, surveillance, search-and-rescue ops, etc. FlytBase & Mayan Robotics, together, seek to enable cost-effective commercial drone adoption not only by large corporations but by SMEs, drone operators and sector-specific UAV system integrators as well. Jordi Muñoz, Mayan Robotics Founder, commented “We have strategically located our headquarters in San Diego California, in addition to being the only manufacturer of our kind that designs, manufacturers with globally sourced components, assembles and ships all products from the United States. This allows us to ensure the safety, reliability, and quality that enterprise customers expect from drone hardware. By partnering with FlytBase, whose intelligent automation software perfectly complements our offerings, we can now provide end-to-end drone solutions to drone developers, system integrators, and of course the end-users.” According to Nitin Gupta, FlytBase CEO, “The partnership with mRobotics is designed to help our customers leverage best-in-class, open-source hardware, and software for building enterprise drone automation solutions. As fleets with dozens of autonomous drones get deployed across industrial use-cases, the focus will shift from purely technology to reliability, scalability, and operational integration. We see enterprise drone adoption rapidly moving from proof-of-concept projects and pilot programs to true production deployments – and look forward to this partnership as a means to enable commercial drone automation, at scale.” To learn more about Mayan Robotics’ products, visit https://mrobotics.io/ To learn more about FlytBase’s solutions, visit https://flytbase.com

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.
  14. 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.

  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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!!!
  18. 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?
  19. Where are all the drone jobs at???? Where can I get real estate drone jobs? Energy Jobs? Etc???
  20. 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!
  21. 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
  22. 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
