  1. 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
  2. Hi, new member here. Sorry in advance if some of my questions are too "noobish" I work for a mining company, limestone being our main thing, and a higher up recently got enamored with drone surveying, more specifically Trimble. After a few meetings with them, I attended being the obligatory IT guy, They seem like a legit big company, but not the most cost-friendly from my own research. Apparently the main selling points of theirs is their proprietary Image processing software/service Stratus & proprietary GCPs, Aeropoints. They claim to have images processed in under 6-8 h
  3. I operate a 3D mapping company that conducts surveys and designs for solar projects. I'm looking for drone pilots with electrical experience, who are interested in conducting site surveys. Among several tasks, you must be comfortable removing the cover of an electrical box. We are looking to work with pilots around the United States and have an immediate need in New York State, specifically near Utica and Corning/Elmira. If you're interested, please email me at Jason.Steinberg@scanifly.com. In your email, please include your resume and/or why you are qualified for the project.
  4. Hello everyone! My name is Frank Lovering and I've been flying drones over 3 years now and passed the initial 107 Certification Test 2 years ago plus the 2nd test 2 months ago. All of my experience has been on DJI drones (P4, Inspire 1v2 and now a Mavic 2 Pro). I'm interested in learning about surveying with the new DJI P4 RTK, the Mavic 2 Pro for Search and Rescue and the Matrice 200 for Ag purposes. And also interested in learning how to fly tiny whoops and race drones. I'm in Yakima, WA. Would love to know where to look for folks using drones professionally and for racing!
  5. Hi, We are TraceAir - we use digital copies of construction sites to automate earthmoving. We are making a "virtual engineer" that automatically compares digital copies of construction sites made with drones against designs and blueprints to help construction teams build faster & cheaper. We raised a seed round of investment and hiring great people. Here is a link to Drone/Field Operations Manager opening at our company. Please read more and apply on Angel List if interested. Thanks! https://angel.co/l/27bTvs Nikita Ushakov, Co-Founder, Head of Marketi
  6. Hey all - My name is Ryan and I’m new to the drone community here in the northeast. Looking to dive into this industry and see how we can incorporate it into our civil/survey workflow. Kudos to Alan and the course curriculum he tought. Passed the Part 107 Test yesterday with a 95 ?? Ryan B
  7. Anyone ran into problems for not having a land surveyor state license? Providing aerial surveying can sometimes replace boots-on-the-ground topographic surveying. I expect there will (already been) push back that UAV data are not as accurate as ground measurements. For example, would a client prefer state licensed ground crew over a newbie UAV surveyor? How do you justify UAV other than lower cost? Thanks, Kam
  8. Hello people, i just passed my 107 and I am waiting to receive my license number but while I wait I am trying to get my company off the ground. I have a LOT to learn, like reducing error in drone deploy/autocad transfer basically field to finish work and having it reliable for customers. Anyhow I would seriously appreciate any advice or help with any of the issues listed above. Thanks! Ray
  9. Hi to all fellow drone enthusiasts;) I'm new to droning; i'm developer of alternative energy systems for a sustainable energy supply for everyone; solar and wind energy project developments require substantial amount of space; this space has to be mapped, georeferenced and topography imported into CAD for further processing (cut and fill, grading, foundation design, ...) Later on, o&m work has to be performed (pole inspection, powerlines inspection and thermal inspection of solar field, ...) I'm in the process of setting up business to provide development, design, and o&
  10. Hello, I just got asked to to a project which involves surveying. The client would like a 29 acre area of land referenced and have a 3D map showing elevations if possible. What is the best program to use for this? I have a Phantom 3 Pro and an Inspire 1 Pro to take the pictures. Also, how much would you charge for this? The client also wants pics and a video fly over. If anyone has any good advice and a good place to see examples, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks! Bert P
  11. Hello, I have a couple of potential large clients within a couple of miles of me. One has a granite quarry, stone crushing, and asphault manufacuring. Another has a very large stone & gravel company, does land clearing and developing including some properties they purchase for themselves. The later is currently doing a 400 acre site clearing where the town has a, I believe, national company provide drone arerial photography to satisfy the town on the work near wet lands. Since my interest is in the commercial industrial, construction, inspection areas, including real estate to pu
  12. Helllo everybody I'm Evan from India. I have been working as a GIS Professional for the past 7 years. Now in near future we might have to acquire aerial photographs of 400 Sq Km and prepare orthophotos. The study area has some significant undulations and forest cover as well. What I would like to know Can I propose a UAV survey method for this kind of project? If yes then roughly how long will it take to complete the flying (considering 10 cm. GSD)? What kind of UAV & software combination (e.g. DJI Phantom 4 with Pix4D Mapper) should I think about? Any help is much appreciated!
