  2. The ALTI team had an endurance flight with a standard Transition unmanned aircraft and achieved an endurance flight time of 10 hours, 43 minutes and 43 seconds. Various minor updates and improvements have been made to the ALTI Transition over the last few months and all these small changes have a BIG result, endurance. Based on calculations and previous flights, expected endurance was around 8 hours, compared with pre-production endurance tests of just over 6 hours in real world conditions. Breaking their very own expectations by nearly 3 hours on a standard, non-modified ALTI Transition ALTI is excited to offer their clients extended endurance to what is already an impressive 7 hour advertised performance. Since this flight ALTI have increase fuel capacity to allow for an endurance of over 11 hours, not because it was required, but because they could. To ALTI’s knowledge and research, an endurance of over 10 hours on a VTOL hybrid (fixed wing and multi-rotor) aircraft under 20kg MTOW and under 3m wingspan has never been achieved by any other aircraft. The current world record for any VTOL aircraft (manned or unmanned) is 22.5 hours, which ALTI plans on breaking by a few hours with its upcoming 6m wingspan ‘Reach’ due early 2018. ALTI develops, manufactures and exports the Transition VTOL system, a double-hybrid, unmanned and fully autonomous fixed wing aircraft with the ability to take-off and land vertically, from anywhere. The key objective with the ALTI Transition was to offer a highly capable, reliable and affordable civil use commercial VTOL (vertical take-off and land) aircraft, which one could actually purchase and use every day, unlike the majority of similar system, available only to military at high price points. The ALTI Transition is made from the highest-grade materials, to the highest standards using unique proprietary techniques. An advanced aerodynamic design with low stall speed, efficient cruise with very low drag, excellent stability in high winds and an incredibly low weight at only 5.6kg for the entire air-frame. The air-frame is completely modular and can be rapidly deployed, from in the case to in the air in under 10 minutes with only two operators required, this along with zero need for a runway or bulky and expensive catapult systems, provides quicker and safer operation, anywhere, any time. The Transition is designed as a hybrid system allowing for a combination of multi-rotor flight and traditional fixed wing flight, providing the advantages of both aircraft types, the practicality of multi-rotor flight for take-off and landing, with the efficiency, range and endurance of a fixed wing aircraft. The incorporation of VTOL technology into the fixed wing system allows the Transition to take-off and land in confined spaces, in a very short time, offering a massive advantage over traditional systems as well as a lower impact and stress on the aircraft with long term use, usually associated with hard and unpredictable parachute or belly landings.
  3. ALTI UAS, world-leading unmanned aircraft developer and manufacturing company, launches advanced Ground Control System (GCS). A complete control and command station for the ALTI Transition unmanned aircraft system as well as other stand-alone aircraft control or camera gimbal and sensor control unit. The ALTI GCS is an advanced, modular, multi-link unmanned aircraft command and control system. It features everything from a high-quality intel computer, pre-loaded with all the relevant mission planning software, dual screen design layout, backup data telemetry link, long range control link, main digital data link (flight planning and telemetry) as well as HD video support, all integrated seamlessly into a lightweight Pelican Air travel case. An optional Range Extension Package is available for the ALTI GCS, which boasts a long-range data and video operation of up to 100km, made possible using a pneumatic telescopic mast and directional grid antenna along with a 10W Microhard amplifier and optional antenna trackers. The ALTI GCS is complete with Intel NUC computer including wireless keyboard and mouse and comes standard with duel 15.6” LED HD display monitors allowing for 160°/160° viewing angles. The digital and video link is powered by Microhard MIMO 2.4Ghz pMDDL2450 ENC radio systems, a solution that provides the bandwidth and range needed for complex data intensive applications. “The ALTI Ground Control Station is designed specifically for the ALTI Transition, It is the ultimate all-round compact GCS solution for effectively controlling the ALTI Transition and other similar unmanned aircraft” said Duran De Villiers, Director, ALTI UAS. The ALTI GCS is compatible with the ALTI Transition, a highly capable, reliable and affordable civil use commercial VTOL (vertical take-off and land) aircraft. The Transition features impressive endurance of up to 12 hours, 3m wingspan, and with zero take-off run required, making it a pure VTOL unmanned aircraft. The ALTI GCS is compatible with various other unmanned aircraft, fixed wing, rotor wing, as well as hybrid aircraft, small quadcopters to large, long endurance fixed wings and more. The ALTI GCS is available with and included in any purchase of the ALTI Transition and also available for sale as a stand-alone product.

  5. Good Afternoon Everyone, I recently launch a digital marketing agency that focuses solely on the golfing industry. One of the services I offer is hole-by-hole guided tours. I'm looking for an individual/team that lives in South Florida (Atlantic side of the state) to do contract work as part of my team. I posted this job on and was overwhelmed with the responses from all over the country. I unfortunately was not specific about the location of the individual/team, so I'm hoping to make that clear here, I just want Florida based licensed UAV/Drone operators. I really appreciate your time and please reach out if you have any questions/interested. I'll be in Boca Raton from May 1-11 and I'm looking to meet prior to agreeing to any terms. Thanks, Matthew Neumann
  6. Hello everyone! I'm Muhammad Waqas, student of Mechatronics Engineering from Islamabad, Pakistan. We're doing a project on UAVs and we need to make a flight controller board. So my question is pretty simple, can Raspberry Pi be used as a Flight Controller? How complex it is to code a flight controller? And is there an easy method to develop a flight controller of our own?
  7. Checkout this testcase for live video streaming from a UAV: Using ASMIRA from the UAV can be flown with visual transmission even with very low bandwidth. A preview of the video takes can be delivered in real time concurrently to the "normal" live camera view for the pilot, thus you can see the footage while the bird is still airborne.

  9. UAVs or as many know and call them, “drones”, have become quite popular in the last couple of years and it seems that, nowadays, everyone has them. This is mostly because the market is over flooded with a plethora of cheap models, and you can buy a drone to have fun with in the back yard for less than $20. Of course, if you want a more sophisticated model that goes over 60mph, or has a 4K camera and basically, does the flying on its own, you will have to cash out from $400 and up. Is there a solution that offers all those great features, but for less money? Yes, there is and it’s called a DIY drone kit. Such a kit gives you a chance to own a great drone model that you can customize to your liking and learn about the drone technology, electronics, physics, aerodynamics, and much more as your project advances. Depending on which kit you choose, you can just order a frame and buy the rest of the parts separately, or you can choose a kit that includes almost all the parts and usually, you just need to buy a battery and a transmitter. Whichever type of a kit you choose, you first need to know how to choose the right one for you. How To Pick the Right DIY Drone Kit If you think that picking a DIY drone kit is easy peasy, you are way off course. You can’t just pick any kit and hope that the final product will be capable of doing what you intended it to. First, you need to decide what are you going to use the drone for. There are two basic types you can choose from: Freestyle drones (also known as racing drones) Aerial photography drones Racing Drones If you choose to go down the Racing path, you need to find a kit that includes a small, light, and durable racing frame, high KV value motors (KV stands for Rounds per Volt), and a Flight Controller that is suitable for that kind of flying. Why do we say a small racing frame that is durable and light? Well, a racing drone needs to be as light and durable as possible because you will crash it a lot, believe us. As for the motors, well, the higher the rounds per volt, the faster it will go and the faster you will be able to change the direction and perform breathtaking aerial stunts like flips, barrel rolls, loops, and so on. Our advice is to opt for motors that have 2300KV or a higher value. When it comes to a flight controller, you won’t actually need one that has all the fancy sensors that keep your drone leveled all the time, the GPS position assistance systems, the high precision barometer for keeping the altitude on its own, and the rest of the high-tech gizmos. You will want a package that gives you the ability to fly in the Acro mode (meaning you get to do all the flying without any assistance) and have the raw power. If you want to have the real drone racing feeling, then your kit also needs to support the onboard FPV (First Person View) equipment and that includes an FPV camera and an RF signal transmitter. (Racing drones usually have carbon fiber bodies and short propellors) Aerial Photography Drones If aerial filming and photography is your choice, then the drone kit you choose needs to be much more sophisticated than a racing drone kit. For starters, you will need a much bigger frame. Also, unlike for racing, where people use exclusively frames for 4 motors (quadcopters), when it comes to aerial filming, the more motors the better. You can choose a Hexacopter frame or even an Octocopter frame. As for motors, this time it’s reversed, the lower the KV value of a motor is, the more stable your drone will be and more filming equipment (camera and gimbal) it will be capable of lifting safely in the air. We suggest going from 900KV or lower. You also need bigger props. For example, if you choose 900KV motor, you should opt for a 10-inch prop. The lower the KV goes, the bigger props you will need if you want efficiency. When it comes to Flight Controllers, for this type of a drone, you will need as much assistance systems as possible. You want your drone to be stable and self-reliant as possible so that you can focus on filming and not so much on flying. If you want ease of setup and to be airborne as soon as possible, we suggest something like the DJI Naza series. If you want to program all the features yourself, you can choose something like the Pixhawk or APM flight controllers. But be warned, if you are not that familiar with programming and coding matter, we suggest going for the Naza series (M Lite or M V2). Important to know: Before choosing any type of DIY drone kit, make sure you know how to actually control a drone. Otherwise, you might get it all prepared for a flight, and crash it only after a few meters if something unexpected happens. Therefore, we suggest that you first buy a small, cheap drone to hone your piloting skills, and only then opt for a more serious drone kit that will get you deep into this hobby. If you want to read more about drone flying tips, we suggest checking out this How to Fly a Drone article. (Aerial photography drones have wider bodies and longer propellors to stabilize their cameras) How to Use a Drone Kit Using a drone kit is pretty much like building a drone from scratch, only, in this case, you don’t have to build the frame from scratch, as you get the frame in parts and you only have to follow the instructions to assemble it with bolts. As for the rest of the parts, depending on what is included in your kit, the procedure is the same as with other DIY UAV projects. After assembling the frame, you need to add ESC’s and motors, connect them properly (check the ESC’s and motor rotation). To connect the motors and ESC’s, we suggest using bullet connectors and heat shrink tubing for isolation. Then, you have to solder the ESCs to the power distribution board, (but most frames today come with an integrated power distribution board so you will probably just have to solder the ESC wires to marked spots on the frame). After that, you need to place your flight controller, but you need to be careful where you place it on the frame because if it’s not directly in the center, your controller might have glitches that can cause your bird to crash or even worse, simply fly away. Also, you need to find the perfect spot for your RC receiver (and the FPV transmitter if you decide to fly in FPV), as far as possible from the GPS module and the flight controller, to avoid interference. The same goes for the GPS module, you need to find the center position for it, but don’t worry, with the help of Mr. Know-it-all (YouTube) you will get everything done quite easy because there are tons of tutorials there. However, if you want an in-depth tutorial on building your drone, we suggest that you check out our DIY Drone: How to Build Your First Quadcopter – Part one and Part two articles for every bit of information you will need for such a project. Wrapping It Up Now that you know how to pick the right DIY drone kit for your needs, and you are equipped with all the needed knowledge, the only step you have to do is to pick a kit. Happy building and don’t forget to let us know which kit you chose and how it went!
  10. Hello everyone! I have created a software package that -amongst other purposes- it can be used to compensate for rolling shutter artifacts and provide corrected images. The overall scope is to increase the accuracy on 3D models created with photographs captured by Phantoms or other low cost UAVs and/or cameras. From tests that I have performed so far, the accuracy increases up to 70% for fast flights. I am turning to you now to further test my algorithm. If you have UAV-captured datasets that you can share with me, I would be very grateful. The only restriction is that I need datasets that have GCPs measured with RTK to eliminate this error source. Thank you very much in advance!

    Hi Everyone, I am Prince and I am from Ghana and i happy to be part of this wonderful community. DJI Phantom4 Pro is what i use. Hope to learn more from here.
  12. Not to long ago I received my first airspace authorization after about 2 months. When I applied I submitted to applications, one for airspace authorization in Class D Airspace with 90 days out, as I had a flexible client.. And another for a job that I would lose unless I could get the authorization within 30 days. The one I submitted for 30 days was denied based on the timeframe. The one I submitted for 90 days was approve. I'm curious the way you guys are approaching requesting authorizations that you need before the 90 days. Can I assume that any request with a start date within 90 days will be denied? I have shoots that I need to get done asap, but I'm worried If I fill out the application with a start date sooner than 90 days it will get denied. Has anyone been approved for authorizations with start dates sooner than 90 days out? If so, how did you determine your start date? Any advice on submitting applications for authorizations for projects that are flexible on exact dates but generally time sensitive (the sooner scheduled the better) would be great.

    UAS College of Choice

    Hi guys, I'm a newly interested UAS drone pilot looking for a school to pick from in terms of preparing myself for the industry. Right now I am torn between UND and Oklahoma State. UND is a leader when it comes to training pilots and offers a major in UAS (however it only focuses on flying and not engineering or design in uas), they are also pretty cheap when it comes to overall cost. Oklahoma on the other hand offers a graduate program that focuses on UAS engineering. What I am torn on is the decision about whether to completely forgo my backup plan to be a professional pilot and enter the drone industry through the engineering aspect of things, or should I keep the commercial pilot idea in hand because of the shortage and just go through one of the drone pilot programs that focus on flight and not necessarily engineering or design? Anybody who has experience in the field or at one of these universities would offer me huge help, thanks.

    Tarot 680 Build

    Hello everyone! I am undergoing a new build using the Tarot 680 Pro frame as my base....however I ordered the Tarot Iron Man 680 kit instead of the 680 Pro kit. Does anyone know if I can just swap the center boards/integrated PCB board from the 680 Pro kit with the stock Iron Man 680 kit? That way I don't have to buy a second kit. Secondly, has anyone had experience using a Canon S110 or S120? I'm planning on using this as my imaging sensor. Finally, does anyone know where to find inexpensive gimbals or gimbal kits that will support the size of an S110/120 or any other digital camera for that matter? I greatly appreciate the help in advance!! -Cody

    UAV Insurance Broker

    Are you thinking about becoming a commercial UAV pilot under FAA part 107? If so, UAV insurance should be a main concern of your new business. A vast majority of "standard" liability insurance policies exclude anything that has to do with aircraft. Since UAVs are under the purview of the FAA, they are considered to be aircraft by most insurers. So how do you get your new UAV operation insured? Easy, contact an aviation specific insurance broker (I happen to be one). If this sounds intimating, you are not alone. However, once you understand the basics of insuring an aircraft, you will be an aviation insurance wizard. The base policy in the aviation insurance industry is liability only. The limits on liability only policies range from $500,000 each occurrence all the way up to $5,000,000 each occurrence. However, if higher limits are needed, they can be negotiated. This liability coverage will protect you from any Bodily Injury or Property Damage claims that may arise from your operation of your insured UAV(s). Fly through a window while shooting a real estate video and land on somebody's grand piano? Covered. Hit a passerby and cut their finger? Covered. After you have purchased liability coverage, and are looking for more protection, you can then add "hull" coverage to your policy with some of the aviation insurance companies. Hull coverage is physical damage to your UAV itself. This is a "Stated" or "Agreed" value. Let us say you have a basic DJI Phantom 3 Professional that you have insured for $1000. You slam this aircraft into a tree and completely destroy it. The insurance company takes a look, sees that it will not be feasible to repair it, and they deem it a total loss. In this scenario, you would get a check for $1000 minus any applicable deductibles ( UAV deductibles are usually 5% - 10% of the insured value of the aircraft). Same logic applies to any other UAV. However, if you have an inspire 1, with a very expensive upgraded camera, you would want to "schedule" the aircraft and the camera separately. The upgraded camera can be added to most UAV insurance policies as "payload" equipment. Liability and Hull coverage are the main coverages that you should be concerned with as a commercial UAV operator. There are some other "ancillary" coverages that I will address in future posts. Thanks, Joe Ernster Bullock Agency, Inc.
  21. Hey, just my introduction! I am a photographer of 15+ years and started flying UAVs about 1 year ago. I love to create stunning images with my Phantom 4 and also shooting a lot of video. I am 107 Certified and looking for ways to make some money in this business. So this is me and here is one of my favorite photos I have taken so far. Iceland If anyone is in my area let me know so we can hook up and go fly or just talk business My number is 214-516-8430

    Matrice 100 Questions

    Hello, I just discovered the Matrice 100 and there are some questions I’d like to ask: As far as I know, the Matrice 100 has additional expansion bays which allows me to add my own components and computing boards/microcontroller board. I want to add my own WIFI module, Depth Camera, Infrared Camera…etc. These components are to link with the microcontroller board while the board communicates with the Matrice 100. I’d like to ask: 1. Will the Matrice 100 be able to satisfy my needs? 2. If it can, what microcontroller board/ can meet my needs? Where can I buy it or does DJI sell it? 3. Which Depth Cameras & Infrared Cameras be able to link with a computing board? Does DJI sell this stuff? 4. If the Matice 100 doesn’t meet my needs, what kind of UAV will?

    Succesfull Acceptance Test Procedure (ATP) in Israel

    Located at the Volcani Center campus in Bet-Dagan, near Tel-Aviv, Agricultural Research Organization (ARO) six institutes are responsible for Plant Sciences, Animal Science, Plant Protection, Soil, Water and Environmental Sciences, Agricultural Engineering, and Postharvest and Food Sciences. ARO also operates four research stations, in various parts of the country, and serves as a testing center for agricultural produce and equipment. Israel's Gene Bank For Agricultural Crops is also located on the ARO Volcani Center campus. While encompassing the full range of agricultural research activities, ARO focuses in particular on arid zone agriculture, enabling Israel - a country short of all the resources required for agriculture - to achieve among the highest levels of agricultural output in the world. As an agricultural research center of international standing, ARO each year attracts a large number of groups from abroad, as well as numerous individual visitors. These include academics, heads of experimental stations, representatives of private companies and public officials. ARO maintains particularly close relations with the various international, regional and national institutes involved in the promotion of good agricultural practice and in the increase of agricultural output, and in particular with the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). At Alpha Unmanned Systems we have always believed that our UAV, the SNIPER, could be useful in improving agriculture. From the Volcani Institute they have proven us correct and by buying two of our drone helicopters they have placed themself at the forefront of agricultural innovation. Equipped with a Flir SC-655 infrared camera plus an on-board processing computer, with a 2 hours autonomous flight and a 2.5 Kg payload; both SNIPER units will support the ARO in their precision agriculture researches, with main topics such as hydric stress, diseases detection or soil nutrients optimization. Also we want to emphasize that we will be pioneers in achieving certification for civilian use of unmanned helicopter. Once delivered, corrected and accepted by the Israeli authority all communication systems and manuals, Alpha gave a training program in Spain, Madrid for two pilots of the ARO and two pilots recognized by the Israel Civil Aviation Authority (ICAA) so they can mentor new pilots in their homeland. After making the handover protocol we travelled to Israel, Tel-Aviv to finish the ATP with our client and perform the first flight tests required to achieve certification by the ICAA. The flights were realized at Tel-Gezer which is a well known area due to it's natural park and past history. All both ATP & ICAA requirements were carried out succesfully.
