  1. I am new to this group and have a question for anyone knowledgable about how drones use elevation data in their flights. Is it loaded into the software onboard the UAV? What data is currently available and used. And would very specific elevation data of the ground surface area along with obstacles present be of any value in that process? Here is what I am talking about .It is a collaboration between Lufthansa and Intermap Technologies in creating a global database for Drone/ UAV usage called NextView. The data specifications are listed at the bottom... https://www.intermap.com/aviation-survace-data Thanks in advance as I don't know (but am trying to learn quickly) all the nuances involved with a wildly growing industry.

  2. Hi everyone! The time is finally here!! We just opened up our beta program for Airilo Connect. The next step is that you finally get to start using it. We are going to open this first test up to 20 videographers. If you have interest, please respond IMMEDIATELY because we are offering spots on a first come, first serve basis. Just respond to this post with anything that shows interest like "YES" or "I'm in!!" and fill out this survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/XG2XSG5 We can't wait to start working with all of you. Even if you end up not making the first 20 spots, we're opening more up quickly so don't worry. Cheers, Matt
  3. At Airilo, we believe in the power of collaboration. We developed a network of drone pilots that stretches across the country in order to offer exceptional videos to real estate agents and vacation rental owners. This network allows us to efficiently deliver our products, but it also provides inspiration for new and better ways of doing business. Especially in real estate videography, we saw sharing videos with clients and getting paid in a timely manner as a common pain point. I can attest to the hassle of emailing Youtube links to share videos with clients, sending Dropbox folders to download the video files and using Paypal to invoice clients only to have to manually remind them if they are slow to pay. I yearned for a platform that would allow me to automatically share videos with clients after I uploaded them and allow clients to download the videos only after they had paid for them. This sentiment was echoed by many other drone pilots. Thus, the idea for Airilo Connect was born. We are currently working on a platform that brings together scheduling, video review, file transfer, and billing so that drone operators don’t have to waste time piecing together multiple programs. In the end, we aim to provide a complete solution for client interaction, product delivery and billing, allowing drone operators to focus on what they do best: providing stunning videos. In the next several months, we will be opening up the beta program for Airilo Connect. The first phase will allow drone pilots to upload their videos and share an online version with their clients and enable clients to download the video after a payment has been made. Even in this basic form, we hope to save drone operators time by automating the sharing and file transfer process and get them paid faster by requiring payment before download. As the beta program progresses, we will add scheduling features, photography and virtual tour sharing capabilities and an automated project management system. Throughout this process we would love feedback on what features you are most intrigued by as well as what features you think should be added. We are excited for this beta program to be the beginning of a conversation about what tools we can provide to best serve all of you. We will initially be inviting people to test Airilo Connect based on when they sign up for the beta program. If you would like to sign up for the beta program click here. We will keep you updated on our progress and will notify you when you have been chosen to be a product tester. I look forward to working with all of you because good things come from working together. Sincerely, Matt Rafferty
  4. Hi UAV Coach community! I'm really glad to join you Recently I've got my first drone (DJI Inspire 2), before I dealt only with ordinary landscape photography and processed them with Luminar photo editor. With aerial photography I keep doing the same, but maybe there are some special tools novices should know about? Plugins, stand alone apps, etc.
  5. Hello, it's a pleasure to e-meet you! I stumbled upon this community while researching for fellow enthusiasts working with drones in the agriculture sector and noticed that there are some forum discussions related to this topic. I am co-founder of AgroHelper and we recently released a web platform that converts drone captured images of farm fields into actionable crop health data. You can learn more here. To give you a bit of additional background: we are a team of 3 co-founders, enthusiasts based in Bulgaria, we don’t have any employees or funding. We all have day jobs and we work on our platform in our free time, essentially very early in the morning, after work and during the weekends. We want to build something really useful for pilots and farmers. To get the user experience right, we need feedback from people like you guys - the ones that spent time in the fields, know the feeling of planning a mission for an entire week and finally crashing before completing it or how hard it is to explain to farmers what's the benefit of using drones. Actually, last time I heard from a farmer with more than 10 000 ha of wheat, he said: "why should I invest in drones, I really like driving my truck around?" You can get a free lifetime account (no CC required). The sole limitation is: 3 data sets (maps) processed each calendar month for free. There're no other limits in terms of number of images, resolution, number of hectares, file sizes etc. So, if you fly above the fields we'll be very happy to hear your feedback! Cheers, Mihail
  6. Hi there, I have been using Skyward software for the past year. It is time for renewal and wondering if there is better software for the dollar? Comments?
  7. Hi I work for PCM IT-Solutions I would love to get connected with organizations that are in need of IT-purchasing and help with any resources for their IT-infrastructure. We are a publicly traded company who does end to end solutions. Let me know if you want to start a conversation about your IT environment, we have vendor agnostics and IT engineers who can hop on calls for free and be consultants
  8. Hey everyone! I'm Justin, and I've been in the industry since early 2014. I started a company called Digital Sky with a guy I met who had a lot of experience in film production (as my background is in commercial flight). We had a phantom 2 with a gopro, and away we went. Since then we've come a long way, we've gone full time, and even have employees. We like to think we're the most advanced drone service provider in the state of Nebraska, and we work in multiple industries, including real-estate. Over the past three years I've learned quite a bit about what it takes to run a drone business, and I'm hoping to make that a bit easier for those of you who are looking for help with some of the more annoying parts of it all, including onboarding new clients and scheduling work. I've developed a software platform that is map based, and makes it easy for your clients to request the exact type of work they're wanting exactly where they want it. It also automates a lot of work like estimating price for jobs, developing proposals, and even handles some client communication and invoicing. We've got quite a bit of it built, and right now we're trying to gauge community interest with an expected launch to the general public in September. If you wouldn't mind taking a look, check us out at www.schedudrone.com and if you think it's a cool idea, let us know by signing up! Signing up doesn't cost a thing, and is a great way for us to know if we should keep doing what we're doing! Thanks!
  9. I currently work in the environmental department of a civil and structural engineering firm in Baltimore, Maryland and have largely taken it upon myself to try and convince management staff that UAS technology could be beneficial within our industry. They’ve yet to fully turn the corner in terms of their support of my interest, so I’ve been on my own with regards to expenses related to your course, the exam, equipment, etc. Based on what I’ve read in the advertisement for the Mapping and 3D Modeling 101 course, it seems the mapping and modeling techniques provided could potentially be useful in our field and might further supplement my pitch for the use of UAS technology. However, I’m trying to get a sense of what costs would be associated with the necessary hardware and software required to perform the techniques provided in the course. If there’s a huge cost for the hardware or software to, say, create contour files from UAS-gathered data, then I might not be ready since this whole endeavor is essentially being paid for out of my own pocket. Basically, I’m curious what additional costs are associated with that Mapping and 3D Modeling 101 course in order to do everything taught in the course.
  10. Hi, After reviewing the list of best budget/starter drones from this site I have, for my first UAV, decided on the Traxxas La Trax Aiias. The main reason being that I suspect it might need to take a few wipouts, dings, bangs edirectytc whilst I find the skills to pilot it effectively and safely. Whilst the immediacy of the out of the box excitement and fly of a drone will be met, I also want to start building and coding my own drones so that I truly get to grips with what it takes to get a UAV into the sky, keep it there and control it. To that end I would like to ask if there is any recommended books on coding, related software, GPS etc specifically linked to drones/UAVs? I know it's a bit green, so myapologies but I wasn't sure how to word it! Any advice appreciated and thanks for your time Gavin
  11. Hello, My name is Brady Koehler I work with the USDA-ARS in Fargo, ND. I am a lead technician for a sunflower drought stress study. The study will take place over the next 2 years. We have small plots that are about 5 acres and want to get as much information on a plant by plant basis if possible. I am most curious about image processing software that can help me get everything below. I have looked at a few places but there are so many out there. What would you recommend? I also would be curious to which drones you like most. I am currently looking at the DJI Inspire or 3DR Solo combined with an infrared camera, thermo camera, and rgb camera which we can mount and remove. Below is a list of everything we want the drone to do: · Plant height and plant count (RGB camera) · Maturity and flower date · Rogue plants · Hybrid phenology · Evaluate leaf and canopy traits · Canopy height · Canopy temperature to determine CWSI · Measurement of canopy light reflectance for determination of NDVI and CWSI. · Data geo-referencing · Temperature · Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) · Crop Water Stress Index (CWSI) · Leaf Area Index (LAI) Thanks, Brady
  12. I'm trying to flash the firmware on my storm 32 gimbal controller. I have and FTDI board plugged in to do this. Problem is that when I hit the flash firmware button, the dos box that comes up says ERROR: cannot open the com port, it may be in use by another application. I tried switching it to a different com port but no success. Can anybody give me some suggestions on what the issued might be? Thanks
