Hello all, Greetings from the Mid Atlantic, glad to be here. Just a quick introduction for everyone; I grew up around Army aviation and when I was born my crib overlooked the flight line at Schofield and I have been hooked on aviation ever since. Ive always had a passion for flight. When I was a late teen I completed my private pilot ground school but was never able to fund my flight hours. That is something I hope to finish. Regardless, I've been building & flying line of site UAS vehicles for about 5 years now, mostly fixed wing, I have been an amateur photographer for a long time, mostly nature, animals, landscapes. Outdoors stuff with some architecture shots. I love being out in the wilds and shooting with my Camera, a Canon 30D. In my early 20's I spent 4 to 5 years land surveying, I love maps and navigation, and as for the recent past I've been an IT/network geek. So my pssion for flight, and my job history and interests have lead me to the up and coming UAS opportunities. So much to love here. Photographer, mapping, cinema, law enforcement maybe? Good times.
Hello everyone! I am a 28 year old from Raleigh, NC and I own a small film business(mostly music, promotional, skateboarding, and corporate videos so far). I am planning on buying a drone in less than 2 weeks. My budget allows me two choices: the DJI Phantom 2 w/ Zennmuse H4-3D gimbal or the Yuneec Typhoon G, as I own a Go Pro Hero 4 Black. After weeks of grueling research, I believe I've decided on the Yuneec Typhoon G, solely because you can video stream live and see what your recording in flight, unlike the Phantom 2. I'm extremely excited to begin learning how to use and properly film with the drone, but does anybody have any input on the Typhoon G vs the Phantom 2 w/ H4-3D gimbal? Any advice would help. Thanks!! -David Timmons
