  1. Hi all, I have recently started a new job with a company that is producing the next generation of drones. Without giving too much away, our drones will significantly increase the flight time, distance and payload capabilities that that restrict existing drones. Our drones will also be able to withstand greater environmental conditions i.e. higher wind and heavier rainfall. As with existing drones, our next generation drone can be used in a multitude of markets from sports, film & entertainment recording, commercial, search & rescue, Inspection, emergency response, Oil & Gas, renewable energy, delivery companies etc. I would like to hear from anyone that has came across operations that have been restricted by current drone limitations or who may have an application that our technological advances would be advantageous. Regards Chris
  2. Hello UAVcoach community! I am probably as new as they come. Have flown a few hobbyist drones but that is about it. I am from Arizona by the way. A year ago I met a guy who started a drone business and it blew my mind how his company was using drones in the construction industry. I am seriously considering starting a career in the drone industry more specifically inspection and development (Ground mapping). I think I have a solid understanding of the training, certifications, software’s, and equipment required to become a qualified drone pilot in the drone inspection field but before I take a leap spending the money and time to get there I would like to better understand the job opportunities currently out there. I know there is a lot of freelance opportunities like DroneBase but what about full-time jobs with companies? I know it is a new technology that is still being adopted but are there companies out there actually hiring drone operators? Is it better to start freelance to build a portfolio before trying to get hired by a company? It would be great to hear the story of anyone who has gone through this journey and works in an inspection or development field with drones, or just some good advice on where to start. Great to meet the community!
  3. I'm new to UAV coach and wanted to say hello to everyone and introduce myself. I'm a part 107 remote pilot (50 hrs), part 61 private pilot (195 hrs) and ITC level I sUAS thermographer. I perform aerial thermography inspections of solar plants, wind turbines, cell towers and power lines using my DJI Matrice 210 v2 with Zenmuse XT2. My business, Infrared Aerial, is based out of South Carolina and I service the southeast geography. Please feel free to pass along my contact information below to anyone that you know or come into contact with that needs to hire a licensed and insured aerial thermography inspection business. Good flying! Ryan Bliss Infrared Aerial 603.521.4736 ryan@infraredaerial.com

  5. Greetings. After many years as a photographer and an RC CP Helicopter Pilot, I've finally put the 2 together to start a new venture. I'm interested in piloting for just about anything at this time, but I intend to get into inspection and agricultural survey, or emergency response. I was a remote duty medic for the Commercial Deep Sea Diving industry, and have worked in Emergency Medical Services for most of my adult life in one capacity or another, usually as a volunteer. I'm in the process of forming a new company to provide my services.
  6. In case you need to monitor power lines, look for damage on oil pipelines, check border fences you are flying beyond line of sight often in areas without terrestrial networks, thus using satellite communication. Getting real time images or videos to the control center is a cost intensive situation. Here our solution can help you save up to 99% of bandwidth and cost by only transmitting relevant content in high definition while sending standard content only in preview quality. In case of video it can be a reduced frame rate. Check out the RAIDO Mission Critical Multimedia Communication Suite at http://www.raidosystem.com/ by http://www.ansur.no/ See here the video of our test case: Cobham AVIATOR UAV200 SatCom link via Inmarsat on a Nexus-II drone with RAIDO software on board: http://uav200.com/experience/#ansur-nexus-II-aviator-uav200
  7. I am looking to hire a small size established or startup company, or even an individual, who is/are willing to grow the industrial drone business and have interest within the Oil&Gas space. And through my company's investment; all will grow together. The drone personnel/division will be working with the NDT (Non Destructive Testing) division of the company. You can reach me at (rmattar@amerapex.com).
  8. Hi there, I recently read some articles about UAVs being used for the purpose of structural inspections of offshore oil platforms and the cargo tanks of ships. Having worked operationally in the maritime industry for the last 16 years, in both the offshore energy and merchant sectors, I was wondering if I can help any UAV professionals get started in these markets. There is definitely lot of room for UAV service and product development in the maritime industry, so depending on your needs, I can help you understand the maritime industry better and identify local opportunities wherever you are in the world. If you are interested in developing new UAV related software and hardware, which may engage, entertain or help improve the safety and welfare of sea-goers, I would be happy to provide input and give advise. Just let me know! All the best Thom

  11. Does Anyone out there have any information regarding inspections inside a metal building with high levels of EMF. These inspections are important to me and i need to find a way to control an Inspire 1 for the mean time. If any other models or components will work please advise. I am on an Innovation Team and we have come a long way to get stalled out a little bit. Please help with any knowledge or suggestions possible. Mr. Perlman do you have any ideas? Where to go for more information?
  12. Greetings to all, As a group the question is what are our services worth? What should an inspector get paid for the photos, 3d map and geotagged information. This is outside of the actual assessment of the object ( bridge, tower, mound of matieral) in question. Per hour? Per object? Per square meter? Tell us your thoughts. Good Journey Richie Rogers
  13. i am close to starting my business. But the one thing i have not figured out is pricing. What are people charging for real estate filming or photography I'm also interested in doing aerial inspections. .Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Frank OneDRONE LLC
