  1. For aerially inspecting wind turbines and other structures, drone pilots come into action. During our mission in Texas, drone pilot Andrew Haskins from National Drone Pros learned how to operate the Sterblue App — in one day. Andrew is also part of the DroneBase network. Sterblue Engineer & Instructor Ignacio with drone Pilot Andrew inspecting wind turbines in Texas Drones with Sterblue software are already flying in four continents and twelve countries. As our company is growing, our pilot network needs to grow as well. Indeed, we need to rely on experienced drone pilots distributed all over the world in order to ensure fast and high-quality inspection processes. But how does the training for the Sterblue App look like? And who can fly a drone for Sterblue? Get some insights from our training with Andrew who now operates for Sterblue in the US. How does the training look like? Being trained to the Sterblue App on field can seamlessly be done in one day! The App allows to fly automatically around the three blades and four faces of a wind turbine. The production downtime is then optimized with a highly standardized data collection phase. Our training process is carried out in three steps: Pilot qualification interview (30 minutes) Online training (45 minutes) Onsite training (1 day) Before the actual training, we introduce ourselves in a 30 minute interview and check about our past experiences as well as future expectations. This is followed by an online training session, consisting of videos, exercises and tests. Here, the learner can gain insights into the Sterblue solution in an interactive way. The online training can be completed in 45 minutes. After passing the first two steps, we start the actual onsite training. For learning how to inspect wind turbines, Andrew joined our experienced Sterblue drone pilot on field in Texas. We believe that involving the pilot in a real mission provides the best learning experience. On the first day of operation, we met at the wind farm in Texas for a safety walk, before heading out to the first turbine. While training pilots to our App, we take as much time as needed in inspecting the first structures. This way, we can ensure that the pilot is fully comfortable and understands each point of the mission and the App. While inspecting the first turbine for about three hours, Andrew was in control of the drone the entire time with the supervision of our Sterblue instructor. Sterblue App: details of a wind turbine from the Sterblue mission in Texas During the following two days, he kept on inspecting wind turbines guided by a Sterblue instructor. This way, he increased his productivity with the Sterblue solution while ensuring good quality inspections. At the end of his training, Andrew inspected ten wind turbines in one day and a half. On his next project for Sterblue at the end of July, Andrew will inspect 29 wind turbines in less than one week. The perspectives of working with us are promising: the US wind market is big and there is a constant need for inspecting and maintaining wind turbines. How to become a Sterblue drone pilot? In order to create good conditions for the inspection process, you need to meet requirements in terms of Experience Location Equipment License At Sterblue, we look for professional drone operators being experienced from working in the industry. To follow on customer projects all over the world, our drone operators are distributed globally. This is to ensure that each drone inspector can act locally, for long and frequent travels to be avoided. For some upcoming projects, we are especially looking for drone operators in the US. Operating for Sterblue, you need to have specific equipment: Our Sterblue App and 3d automatic navigation software is compatible with the whole DJI product line. Preferably, we are using the DJI Matrice 200 series. Also, you need to be a licensed drone pilot in the country of your operation. If you are interested in working with us, please reach out for us here. We are also looking for pilots for our power grids market! Ignacio and Andrew after the wind turbine inspections
  2. Good advice on practice. Training flights are FUN! Each maneuver is scalable. Circularizing your flight, especially in tight regimes, is the toughest! This is by courtesy of Scott Burgess, PhD, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and their small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) program. Have fun, and to borrow from Scott Manley (youtube - DSnM), "Fly Safe!" Basic maneuvers to practice to proficiency: Square flight pattern with aircraft heading away at all times Square flight pattern with aircraft facing toward at all times Square flight pattern with aircraft pointing into the square at all times Circle flight pattern around the square with the camera continuously pointing at the center at all times
  3. Greetings, Have any of you gone through the UAV Coach hands on flight training? If so where did you train at and what is your evaluation of their training. I just booked a 90 minute course at Grand Bay, Alabama. Comments please Thank You
  4. Hi, I'm a new drone enthusiast and would like suggestions on where to start. On vacation I ran into a guy flying his drone and had such a great chat with him I thought I'd like to do that too. He talked about all the business opportunities and what fun he had doing it I just had to learn more. I would very much appreciate any and all suggestions on where to start, licensing, training and anything else you all could share about learning about drones and career opportunities. I'm in los Angeles so if any locals are willing to take on an apprentice I'm open!
  5. Anyone here have experience with event? They are coming thru Denver and am determining if it is worth the 3 days of time and money. Thank you
  6. Hi all, I am planning out some improvements and updates to the Post-Production course and part of that is a consideration for making some new screencast videos on either new topics or going more in depth on a topic already covered. So, wondering what everyone thinks should be included and hoping at least a few of you have some time to share more in-depth thoughts over email or a phone call. Just let me know, want to make the course something that appeals to even more students if possible. Best, Christian
  7. Hello! Does anyone have any experience with Drone Simulators? I'd like to purchase one to improve my flight skills without possibly sacrificing one of my actual sUAS babies! I've looked into Zephyr and RealFlight. Anyone love either of those or have a different recommendation? Just passed Part 107 with a 93% so its time to log some hours and hit the ground running! Thanks!
  8. Little Arms Studios just released its newest build of Zephyr Drone Simulator, a professional-minded simulator already adopted by various flight schools within the U.S. and abroad. We felt this release was particularly noteworthy, however, because we’ve completely redesigned our website and given a new look to the Learning Management System interface. In addition, we’ve now packaged two different popular controller styles or a versatile USB adapter with Zephyr so that pilots will be able to select a complete hardware solution that meets their own preferences. As UAV Coach has a vibrant community we wanted to let everyone know about the newest developments with Zephyr. If you’ve been aware of us in the past we welcome you to come see how Zephyr has transformed into a powerful training tool. If you’re just finding out about us for the first time come discover why Zephyr is a steadily growing platform for serious sUAS training. You can view our full press release on sUAS News.
  9. Hi all! We're opening up enrollment to our newest online training course, Aerial Post-Production 101, tomorrow morning: http://learn.uavcoach.com/p/aerial-cinematography @Christian Tucci, our instructor, and all around post-production guru / nice dude, will be working 1:1 with students to develop demo reels and to teach concepts like assembling rough cuts, transitions, coloring, music, and post-processing workflows. Christian reminded me this morning that video editors can charge $250+ / hour for post-processing work...at $199, I feel really good about the value students will be getting in this course. Almost 6 hours of video content! Personalized instruction and 1:1 support from Christian! To ensure that each student gets quality attention, we're limiting course enrollment to the first 100 students for now...so make sure to join our pre-enrollment list to get notified when we open up enrollment tomorrow. Happy to field any questions about the course in this thread. Hope you all are doing well / getting some flying time in!
  10. Hello all, I'm currently working with VA Vocational Rehab to get some UAS training and certification, but I don't want to be limited to quadcopters and photography. What would you recommend for a civilian to train in fixed wing drones with a focus towards law enforcement? I am pushing for them to send me to UND Fargo but I would like to know if there are other options. Thanks in Advance!
  11. Hi There, I am a Canadian photographer and bought a DJI 4 last week. I am teaching myself to fly and having a great time. Do you need drone training and certification in order to market yourself as a drone photographer (video & stills)so you can sell your services for private commissions? What happens if I work in the USA? Thanks Sid
  12. Hi all! Excited to announce that our UAV Coach Aerial Cinematography Training Course will be going live soon, in July! The final touches are being put on the course and its content. We have some great training material for you all and hope you will sign up on the promo page below for further updates. The course is going to cover a HUGE amount of material and concepts from aerial camera system theory, digital cinema camera basics, Stabilization 101, image control, and 2 dedicated modules on post-production editing, music, transitions, and color correction! After you take the course you are going to be capable of shooting aerials that help to tell a story, one of the main goals of any professional cinematographer. You will then be able to edit this footage into a professional, high-quality reel perfectly synced with music and color corrected to really make the footage pop! We even shot a short action film complete with aerials and ground based footage to demonstrate and teach you the topics in the course through a unique perspective. During the course, and even after it ends, you will have full access to myself and my co-instructor, Brendan. You can ask us any questions you would like, show us your footage, and get our feedback on your cuts. We are excited to work with you all and see what you can create! http://learn.uavcoach.com/courses/aerial-cinematography Check out the promo page above to sign up for updates and to watch the promo video. See you all in the course! ~Christian T.

  16. Whoa there. Just found this: http://thedroneracingleague.com/fpv-simulator/ It's a free FPV racing simulator. I just bought the FrSky® Taranis X9D transmitter for $230 on eBay, and I plan to start training. Might be a while before I hit the pro FPV racing circuit, but I'll give it a go. Who's with me? Want to train together?
