    Strange "Custom" Advisory

    Can anyone explain the large yellow polygon around the area near where I live. It was not there yesterday and it's labeled "Custom" "York County" but yet this polygon encompasses 5 or 6 counties. Although I heard some fighter jets flying around the area today, I did't see any NOTAMS posted so I don't know how this advisory might affect flying. Frank

    Wind Barbs on Vector Maps

    At what altitude are the winds being measured when viewing a vector map on I saw 125+ knot winds yesterday in my region, and this morning it's showing 75 knots. That's hurricane force winds, yet the surface winds are about 6-12 MPH over the past two days. Just curious... Frank
  3. Not sure if this is the right forum to post but passed my 107 today after studying through drone pilot ground school's program. The test IMO was pretty easy although some questions had multiple correct answers. The Drone Pilot Ground School was a tremendous help and their mock tests was close to a mirror image to the 107. Many thanks to a great program!

    Drone Search and Rescue

    I'm being a little bit facetious here, but I see a need for a company that finds and rescues lost drones. I've read a lot of stories about hobbyists, particularly, who write about their drone adventures, and often end with, "...and then it flew away." Never to be found again. Some of these are very expensive drones with pilots who like to push the limits beyond the radio range of their controllers. My neighbor just recently got a drone as a gift from his wife. His wife told me that on his first flight he was pushing the limits and went beyond them. "...and then it flew away." It occurred to me that there may soon be a business case for a company that specializes in finding and recovering lost drones. Yes, I'm aware that there are drones with homing capabilities, but they may not work perfectly, either. I have no idea how to get around all the rules that would probably govern such a business. E.g. flying over property, getting permission to do a rescue operation, etc. Or the mechanics of doing this kind of business. How would you get a drone that is stuck in a tree 150 feet off the ground? Climb up the tree? Use a "wrecker drone" with a hook on the end of a rope or chain? Use a tethered balloon with a radio-controlled hook-and-chain mechanism? Engage the fire department hook and ladder truck--if they can rescue cats, surely they could rescue a lost drone. The Drone Search and Rescue company could probably sell Tiles® or some kind of Bluetooth tag system to attach to a drone that would broadcast its position. Well, it was a thought. Stan Nickel

    David New to Drones

    Hello, I was looking to try using a drone to lift a fish line over a tree that is about 100 ft tall in order to put up a HAM Radio antenna. The fish line doesn't have to be strong, maybe 10 pound line. I used to use a Bow & Arrow, but we almost hit a neighborhood dog, so am looking for an alternative. Don't want to spend big bucks. I thought that the drone might allow more precision placement of the line. (BTW, the fish line is used to drag up a heavier line.) Any ideas? David

    Hello Everyone!

    Just thought I would introduce myself! My name is April and I'm from the beautiful mountains of Virginia. I'm currently working for a smaller video/media production company out of Roanoke...but I have a background in a little bit of everything! I'm about 6 hours away from having my private pilots license (that's on the back burner at the moment...funny how life gets in the way of all the fun things!!) and I'm delving into the world of UAV's and aerial cinematography. More of a trial by fire approach at this point but very eager to soak up as much knowledge as I can here. Looking to possibly pull the trigger on a DJI Phantom 4 or YUNEEC Typhoon H...and dive head first into this! Love all things involved with aviation and adventure and look forward to making great connections here and learning as much as I can. Happy flying!! April
