  1. Hello, Received my license and looking into how to bring drone work into our existing pipeline and well casing corrosion prevention business in the Permian Basin of West Texas (yeah, it's quite around here right now). Much of my career has been with GIS (GISP certified) and have been in the oilfield now for 8 years. Just starting to evaluate the market and looking for a niche to fill. Thanks UAV Coach for the great training!
  2. Hello UAV community, For the past 4 years, I have been working as a drone operator and aerial cinematographer around the United States. I recently moved to Puerto Rico to pursue a documentary project and have decided to start a different kind of drone business with a local colleague. I am looking for advice on the most popular drone models that are currently used for damage/structural inspections, 3D mapping, and surveying (I understand that this is probably 3 separate drones). I could repurpose my Mavic Pro and Inspire 2 for this venture, but I imagine there are systems that are better s
  3. Hi all, just got this email from one of our students: Thoughts? I haven't spent enough time comparing the two myself. (cc @Lewis@IcarusAerials @Trevor - Icarus)
  4. Hi everyone! I am an architecture graduate currently working in Construction management. I passed the written exam for my FAA Remote Pilot License and am really dedicated to breaking into the drone industry as a career. My goal is to become a photographer/videographer with my Mavic 2 Pro. I'm naturally interested in providing services for architecture firms or construction companies given my education and occupation background but, I am very interested in getting into Real Estate and Inspections also. I've done research to find the proper training and programs needed for mapping/3D modelings
  5. very excited about learning to fly, Hoping to venture into a career change as I get older and hopefully wiser. I have flown a mavic pro and a Inspir 1 under the supervision of a 107 pilot. I loved it! looking for others who I can learn from and just enjoy the ride (from the ground of course). I am taking the 107 test Friday the 17th of Aug.2018....I feel very confident because I invested in a course from Remotepilot101.com, I have also taken multiple practice test and have performed very well, so here goes!!!
  6. All pilots that are considering using the H520 for mapping should watch this detailed analysis to determine if the rolling shutter implementation of the Yuneec E90 camera will provide you the accuracy that your customers require.
  7. Hi, Does anyone know what settings Pix4D Capture applies to the camera (Inspire 1 X3) when using the gridded flight mission? Last time I used it, I wasnt given the option to apply manual settings. Obviously I don't want Auto Exposure etc. applied. I am not sure what impact auto settings are having on the images Regards, Rylan
  8. Hi, I am a 'late bloomer' but already using drones to map estuarine edge and subtidal habitat. I do a few presentations each year and can augment images with aerial work. Keen to learn how others use drones and keep up with new drone technology.
  9. Hi, I'd like to ask if you know countries that have drone regulations specific to land surveying? I know there are countries that has initiatives where they use drones for conducting land surveys needed for getting land titles. These countries are Tanzania, Rwanda, Namibia among others. Would you know if these countries (and other countries) have government regulations guiding drone users on how they'll conduct land surveys? I only see policies related to drone registrations in aviation authorities. Thanks a bunch!
  10. Dear UAV Coach community, In Geoscan we develop multidimensional spatial data visualization system – Sputnik GIS. It is a great tool for viewing and analyzing wide range of UAV survey results. Here is areas of applications of Sputnik GIS: mining, urban planning, road construction and maintenance, oil and gas, emergency management, condition survey and more. We are glad to present you a new version of Sputnik 1.3. In this version, we improved TLS rendering algorithm and released new features. Please check out the list of improvements and innovations below. 1. TLS rend
  11. 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 b
  12. Roof assessment we did recently for a nice condominium with a rooftop terrace. Just want to pass this tip along to any pilots out there that are also doing roof assessments. This roof had a lot going on! Something you have to keep in mind is that some sections of the roof will not be visible depending on the angle of the which is important if that is a significant area of the roof. Try to get close to the areas that could be blocked out by an erected structure. https://imgur.com/5g6uMRX
  13. Hi all, CAVU Media created a 1,300+ acre map of New Orleans City Park. They were able to achieve higher resolution on the imagery w/ drone mapping software compared to traditional aerial photography. I would love to know your thoughts on this study as I've gotten some interesting feedback and challenges from posting this article. https://blog.dronedeploy.com/mapping-large-areas-drones-create-high-resolution-map-of-1-300-acre-urban-park-5637c6f055e1
  14. Hello everyone! I have created a software package that -amongst other purposes- it can be used to compensate for rolling shutter artifacts and provide corrected images. The overall scope is to increase the accuracy on 3D models created with photographs captured by Phantoms or other low cost UAVs and/or cameras. From tests that I have performed so far, the accuracy increases up to 70% for fast flights. I am turning to you now to further test my algorithm. If you have UAV-captured datasets that you can share with me, I would be very grateful. The only restriction is that I need datasets that hav
