Hi all,Just bought a drone? Already a professional? A drone enthusiast? Regardless, your help is needed!I am looking for drone/RPAS/UAV pilots and enthusiasts to be a part of research I am undertaking into drone flying practices in the UK.What are the aims of the project? I’m exploring what kind of airspace is produced by the interactions between regulation on the one hand and the actual experience of drone flying on the other. What do we know about the invisible politics of airspace? How important is the drone user in shaping their own flying experience? Don’t worry about answering that of course… that’s my job!How could you contribute?I’m looking for two types of contributions, both of which would be completely anonymous in the final research: Flight diary – regardless of how long you’ve been flying drones, I’m looking for pilots (beginner, hobbyist, professional, whatever!) to record a diary of the experience of just a few drone flights over the next 2 months - I'd give plenty of pointers as to the kind of things to talk about, and time commitment is all up to you. This might then be followed up by an interview if you’d be willing. Interview – if you work in the industry, this would be a short (informal) interview discussing your own drone flying habits and interests, along with the wider sentiment of the industry/your company. I am based in London, though you would not be expected to travel – please do get in contact wherever you are as I would love to hear from you.If you are interested or would like further information, please get in contact with me via PM or by email – firstname.lastname@example.orgThank you for your time!HarryGeography undergraduate student at Oxford with a keen interest in the aviation industry, currently undertaking research for my dissertation.
Greetings from the Shenandoah Valley of Northwestern Virginia. About a year ago I saw an ad for an "in person" course in drone certification at a community college. It was a week long course but I was not able to get the time off from work approved. I never took the course, but the interest remained. My girlfriend gave me a drone for Christmas this past year and I want to learn how to fly it the right way, so I can safely pursue a fun hobby and maybe do it professionally as well, since it seems to be a growing industry. I've been fascinated by aviation in general as long as I can remember and now I'm ready to do something about it.
I am moving and need to sell this platform. The price has been reduced to $6,500.00 and the shipping can be split, I will entertain serious reasonable offers, shoot me a reply!! This unit is a solid platform and easy to fly, if you have flown other DJI products (Phantom or Inspire) you will find this as easy or easier to fly than those and this unit has less than 1 hour on it. I started my business focusing on construction inspection and engineering surveys, but life has pulled me in a different direction so I am selling my equipment. If I didn’t have to sell, I wouldn’t, the package includes the following: - 1 DJI Matrice 600 - 1 Matrice Controller - 4 sets of TB47S batteries (24 total) - 4 100W Power Adapters/chargers with AC Cables - 1 DJI Lightbrige 2 - Ground Unit - 1 Run Cam Owl Plus FPV camera - 1 Smart Powercharge SPCM100+ deep cycle battery charger - 2 Controller Lanyards - 3 USB to micro USB cables - 1 Go Professional - DJI Matrice 600 Travel Case - 1 Ronin MX - 2 Ronin Batteries - 1 Ronin Battery charger - 1 Ronin Controller - 1 Sony IR cable (allows the Sony camera to be triggered remotely) - 1 Remote start/stop unit (used to remotely start/stop video, and trigger the camera) - 1 Carry Bar - 1 Ronin Stand - 1 Custom Pelican 1560 hard case for the Ronin The pictures can be found here. My storage device takes a minute or two to load. Since these pictures were taken, the Matrice was assembled and test flown twice. Everything works great, just getting out of the drone business. https://files.mycloud.com/home.php?brand=webfiles&seuuid=3aaffc77b20824c3c439772fcc484011&name=Matrice_-
Ok my phantom 3 professional will be here this Friday. Happy Camper! Since I am going from a hobby to a business. I have been through various sites including DJI, download all the manuals, googled "setup dji phantom 3 professional". The equipment is the DJI Phantom 3 Professional, and the Apple IPAD Mini 2 with WiFI. Both are starting with a clean slate, as almost my brain. Looking for best practices and steps for the whole package. Example: I have read were some apps conflicts with others with operating your DJI were you need to force stop one to correct an issue. Example: I have also read and experienced how firmware can brick a piece of equipment. Example of one site found. http://droneflyers.com/talk/threads/phantom-3-hints-tips-and-fixes.969/ Looking for the best clean setup for the DJI and to have installed only that's needed also good to have apps on the Ipad. Thank You Very Much
