  1. Hi everyone Im Pamela a researcher for UK Drones. My husband and I started the company which evolved from our hobby of Salmon fishing in Scotland ?we are based in North Yorkshire England UK. We are operating Yuneec H520 at the moment (we call him TANGO 2) Tango 1 malfunctioned and bit the dust at a friends farm R.I.P ? Interested in all aspects of Drone deployment commercially and recreation, drone racing inclusive. Shaun my husband is retiring as a fixed wing commercial pilot fully early 2019 ??? Here to learn as much as possible as we find the UK to be a little backward on the whole Drone scene ? Hope to be able to contribute to the Forum too. A big hello to everyone from here at UK Drones Stokesley Pamela and Shaun ? ?
  2. Ok, I think I'm getting ahead of myself but nothing ventured nothing gained! So I have been looking at various UAV manufacturers. My initial list includes Yuneec and DJI. Yuneec were a firm favourite based on the performance and reviews and a nice price point. That was all before the guys at Icarus Aerials pointed out in Aerial and 3D Mapping course - the Mapping Hardware module covered somethig that I hadn't even considered, that being an important point of geotagging photographs. So currently that appears to discount the Yuneec Hexacopters - obviously happy for arguements in favour of the Yuneecs and any associated workarounds for geotagging. What I am looking to achieve is value adds to topographical (TSC2 with an S3 and TSC2 with a 5600 for GPS. We also use 3D laser scanning (Trimble TX5) for elevations and internal work. I work as a Junior Assistant Surveyor and amtrying to get the company to extend their remit and go outside their staples of land based surveys. The cost for the CAA course and UAV will have to be mine as they are not in the right mind set to to take up the new challenges and engage with clients to offer it as a service. Thanks to Spitfire 76 and the thread he shared - http://bestdroneforthejob.com/drones-for-work/agriculture-drone-buyers-guide/ I now have questions based around the brilliant section 'How Flying Cameras Measure Crop Health'. With VIS and NIR is possible through the use of an appropriate filter to determine the species of trees in a forest based on colour scale for Oak, Beech, Ash, Horn Beam, Alder etc? If not is this sort of data/detail possible through any other multi-spectral imagery? Is thermalimaging included in the banner of multi-spectral imagery or is a separate solution? As well as that I have a number of questions around the 3D requirements in terms of software, camera, UAVs capable of performing the task of capturing the required data and the back end system requirements to interpret the data. How reliable is the data in terms of accuracy? Then this accuracy point brings me to GIS, just how accurate is it when used to fix specific points like buildings, street furniture like man hole and inspections covers, verges and kerbs, lamp posts etc. Can it be used in conjuction with a topographical survey to enhance detail and help a client visualise what is just a 'flat' plan of a site? If I am all over the place inmy logic and questions, I apologise just put it down to being more than a little green Thanks for your time Gavin
  3. Hello and thank you for allowing me to be part of your community. Im a beginner and want a drone for my photography business but also one that could expand to offer other business opportunities such as construction inspection work, estate agents film and photos, etc The models I am interested in are:- as I have listed a few I have added my concerns as to possible advantages/ disadvantages of having each model. I do not want to buy one and then feel I need to upgrade within a short time DJI Mavic Pro (portability/ ease of use - limited, small camera (not professional camera quality) DJI Phantom 4 Pro (decent video files, more robust - limited camera functions, not professional stills quality) DJI Inspire 1 Pro (price is more forgiving than 2, limited flight time, video, stills ok quality) DJI Inspire 2 (excellent quality video & stills, pricey) Yuneec H520 (is it as good a platform, reliability as DJI? Is camera as good? Price appears good? Does it compete with DJI Inspire 1 or Powervision?) Powervision Powereye ( looks to be good value at the moment? Is there the support available? Is the camera professional quality?) Now I do not mean to offend anyone with my remarks, they are more questions and opinions that I have gathered from others but would like your opinions please . . . Thanks in advance River Xavier
  4. Hi everyone, I'm Ex Military and Commercial Aviation. I've just started a couple of new businesses here in the UK, 1 being UK Drones, the other Fishtripadvisor. I'm looking for a decent uav, aerial photography and cinematography. Been trying to buy a Typhoon H pro from Yuneec here in the UK, but to be honest it looks like they are not bothered about making money, are they getting too big? I really liked the Typhoon, but might have to look at others. Anyway, nice to be part of your community. Regards Shaun
  5. Hi everyone. My name is Bob and I live in Surrey, England in the UK (Soon to no longer be part of the "EU"). One of my part-time hobbies is photography and recently, due to a prostate infection, I had been off work for several months. This gave me the opportunity to watch plenty of You Tube videos about drones, the different types, brands and the do's and don'ts of flying etc. I settled on a DJI Phantom 3 Standard as my first venture into the hobby. May get a bigger, better one later on. I have bought 2 extra batteries (official ones) and a gimbal/camera guard. I had a couple of small "incidents" at low level and luckily onto soft bushes and grass so no damage other than green scars on blades. I'm going to France for D Day events again this year and this was one of the reasons wanted to buy one. I'm hoping to get written permission from the cemetary at Omaha for some shots, and will be contacting French Aviation Authority to get official guidelines for useage in France. Any experience or tips most gratefully received. Cheers all Bob
