  1. 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 course… that’s my job!How could you contribute?I’m looking for two types of contributions, both of which would be completely anonymous in the final research: Flight diary – regardless of how long you’ve been flying drones, I’m looking for pilots (beginner, hobbyist, professional, whatever!) to record a diary of the experience of just a few drone flights over the next 2 months - I'd give plenty of pointers as to the kind of things to talk about, and time commitment is all up to you. This might then be followed up by an interview if you’d be willing. Interview – if you work in the industry, this would be a short (informal) interview discussing your own drone flying habits and interests, along with the wider sentiment of the industry/your company. I am based in London, though you would not be expected to travel – please do get in contact wherever you are as I would love to hear from you.If you are interested or would like further information, please get in contact with me via PM or by email – droneflightresearch@gmail.comThank you for your time!HarryGeography undergraduate student at Oxford with a keen interest in the aviation industry, currently undertaking research for my dissertation.
  2. Ok, I think I'm getting ahead of myself but nothing ventured nothing gained! So I have been looking at various UAV manufacturers. My initial list includes Yuneec and DJI. Yuneec were a firm favourite based on the performance and reviews and a nice price point. That was all before the guys at Icarus Aerials pointed out in Aerial and 3D Mapping course - the Mapping Hardware module covered somethig that I hadn't even considered, that being an important point of geotagging photographs. So currently that appears to discount the Yuneec Hexacopters - obviously happy for arguements in favour of the Yuneecs and any associated workarounds for geotagging. What I am looking to achieve is value adds to topographical (TSC2 with an S3 and TSC2 with a 5600 for GPS. We also use 3D laser scanning (Trimble TX5) for elevations and internal work. I work as a Junior Assistant Surveyor and amtrying to get the company to extend their remit and go outside their staples of land based surveys. The cost for the CAA course and UAV will have to be mine as they are not in the right mind set to to take up the new challenges and engage with clients to offer it as a service. Thanks to Spitfire 76 and the thread he shared - http://bestdroneforthejob.com/drones-for-work/agriculture-drone-buyers-guide/ I now have questions based around the brilliant section 'How Flying Cameras Measure Crop Health'. With VIS and NIR is possible through the use of an appropriate filter to determine the species of trees in a forest based on colour scale for Oak, Beech, Ash, Horn Beam, Alder etc? If not is this sort of data/detail possible through any other multi-spectral imagery? Is thermalimaging included in the banner of multi-spectral imagery or is a separate solution? As well as that I have a number of questions around the 3D requirements in terms of software, camera, UAVs capable of performing the task of capturing the required data and the back end system requirements to interpret the data. How reliable is the data in terms of accuracy? Then this accuracy point brings me to GIS, just how accurate is it when used to fix specific points like buildings, street furniture like man hole and inspections covers, verges and kerbs, lamp posts etc. Can it be used in conjuction with a topographical survey to enhance detail and help a client visualise what is just a 'flat' plan of a site? If I am all over the place inmy logic and questions, I apologise just put it down to being more than a little green Thanks for your time Gavin
