Not only are they the safest, quickest method of quickly taking a snapshot of an entire highly dynamic site, they significantly reduce surveying costs. Adding powerful structure from motion (SfM) software and virtual survey tools to the equation means no boots on the ground and no need for interrupting any operations.
I’ve been a card carrying member of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) for over a decade, when my first plane was a 2-channel toy with a turning radius of Texas from a hobby store. Today that humble start has grown into a whole collection of Warbirds, 3D planes, EDF jets, Helicopters and of course the…Continue

A very good piece in IEEE Spectrum reports on the research on the risks small/med bird strikes in aviation. Short conclusion: it rarely…Continue
I have been posting here for a couple years. Back when it consisted of a lot less drone and a lot more DIY. So please refrain from making silly comments like,"Do you know the name of the site you just posted on?"
Now that that's taken care of. You may have noticed the Commander in Chief told the FAA yesterday to do their job. That made me think. Not that I don't have this thought at least once a week. What happens if we lose our hobby what will I do?
