  1. Hi all, I have recently started a new job with a company that is producing the next generation of drones. Without giving too much away, our drones will significantly increase the flight time, distance and payload capabilities that that restrict existing drones. Our drones will also be able to withstand greater environmental conditions i.e. higher wind and heavier rainfall. As with existing drones, our next generation drone can be used in a multitude of markets from sports, film & entertainment recording, commercial, search & rescue, Inspection, emergency response, Oil & G
  2. Hi all,Just bought a drone? Already a professional? A drone enthusiast? Regardless, your help is needed!I am looking for drone/RPAS/UAV pilots and enthusiasts to be a part of research I am undertaking into drone flying practices in the UK.What are the aims of the project? I’m exploring what kind of airspace is produced by the interactions between regulation on the one hand and the actual experience of drone flying on the other. What do we know about the invisible politics of airspace? How important is the drone user in shaping their own flying experience? Don’t worry about answering that of co
  3. Hi, my wife is buying me a drone for christmas, I have also been a keen amateur photographer for many years, now I am looking forward to learning to fly and take some amazing photos.
  4. Just introdfucing myself as a new memberwho may be slightly different from the rest. My interest in drones has been sparked by my disability. I am trying to learn to fly them so I can take my camera where I cannot go myself (which is most places nowadays) allowing me to continue my hobby and old profession to some extent. I have started to learn using simulators on my Mac and iPad, as well as using a real life one, the Syma X5C . Yes I do have a long way to go, especially as I want to pass the CAA PFAW and then I feel I can teach other disabled people to use the drones to give them more f

  6. I'm hoping people with experience can give me some hints and tell me where you've made mistakes and what you've learnt
  7. Hi everyone, I'm Ex Military and Commercial Aviation. I've just started a couple of new businesses here in the UK, 1 being UK Drones, the other Fishtripadvisor. I'm looking for a decent uav, aerial photography and cinematography. Been trying to buy a Typhoon H pro from Yuneec here in the UK, but to be honest it looks like they are not bothered about making money, are they getting too big? I really liked the Typhoon, but might have to look at others. Anyway, nice to be part of your community. Regards Shaun
  8. Hi everyone. My name is Bob and I live in Surrey, England in the UK (Soon to no longer be part of the "EU"). One of my part-time hobbies is photography and recently, due to a prostate infection, I had been off work for several months. This gave me the opportunity to watch plenty of You Tube videos about drones, the different types, brands and the do's and don'ts of flying etc. I settled on a DJI Phantom 3 Standard as my first venture into the hobby. May get a bigger, better one later on. I have bought 2 extra batteries (official ones) and a gimbal/camera guard. I
  9. Hi all, Whilst I have no ambition to become a professional, I am still keen to keep up to date on UAV innovation and also to keep on top of legislation that is relevant to the places where I wish to fly.
  10. Hi my name is Iain from the Stonehaven in the North East of Scotland. I initialy bought a used 450 quadcopter a couple of years ago then gave that away and built my own 450 and recently built a 550 Hexacopter using DJI NAZA V2 controller and E300 motors. I have always had a keen interest in Model aircraft from many moons ago and very involved with photography and saw the drones(I must admit I hate that description) as a way to get some different images from different viewpoints. However, I still view myself very much as a newbie as I have not had much flying experience. At the moment i am mo
  11. Hi All New to the forum, I have been interested in the role of UAV within Technology for a long tome, especially for the potential to provide messed communications networks for disaster areas, at the moment I was thinking of the current earth quake in Italy. However it seems communications is still a way off (please correct me if I'm wrong) .. but the use of UAV for surveying within construction and Mining is a very health market, one question I have particularly on Mapping software. Is there a current mapping software that would recognize Japanese knot-weed. Th
  12. Hi all, Just a quick hello from the UK. Looking to connect with other's from around the World. Cheers, Steve FAA Dispatch Instructor
  13. Hi all, haven't flown yet! but looking to start really soon with a Phantom 4 i think. Looking round for some beginner courses before buying. michael
  14. Hi, I am a fairly new drone user and have a DJI Phantom 3 Standard. I am very interested in photography which is the reason I bought this particular model of drone. I am interested particularly to hear from other P3S users to gain any advice which will help me as well as sharing any information I have to help others. My main drive is always to fly safely within our own CAA guidelines and as I visit Texas fairly r=frequently, to abide by FAA regulations. If anybody wants a chat, please contact me. Fly safe!!
  15. Just joined. I am a retired surveyor interested in the use of drones for the inspection of high buildings and structures; also in connection with ground survey. Looking to learn and welcoming tips and advice Waiting for delivery of a Hubsan 502S
  16. Hi, My name is Kerr I'm interested in finding out what tools/resources pilots are currently using to pre-plan and log flights? Thanks for your time, Kerr
  17. Hi all, I am a beginner, having struggled to learn on a Hubsan 107L, I have now acquired an MXJ X101. A very different bird. I know it's very much entry-level, so am not expecting too much from it but is it possible to extend the control range? 100 meters isn't much and I'd hate to see it just drift off into the distance! Once I have managed a few flights - the weather here is not ideal for flying at the moment - I will upload some videos. Don't expect too much; it's only a 1mp camera.
  18. Hi all, received the below email from Ren out of Manchester. With his permission, I'm posting. Hope this is helpful to those of you in the UK considering getting your PFAW. -- Hi Alan, Ren here in the UK. I have just undergone the process to become a professional UAV pilot here in the UK. To do this you need a permission from the Civil Aviation Authority (the UK equivalent of your FAA) and have to undergo training with a CAA accredited organisation to achieve this. There are a number of organisations that offer this service and it’s up to the individual involved which one y

I'm Karl from the UK, I am currently a tree surgeon however I am half way through getting my Cap-C PFAW, I have done the theory side, now just battling my way through the operations manual (tedious) before I can go for my practical exam I hope to meet new hobbyists and commercial pilots to share thoughts and ideas!
