Justin Stiltner commented on Bertrand Duchiron's blog post Canada drone regulations change in 2016
"I like that they state up front at the bottom of page 1 / top of page2 that the UAVs in this case are not flown for recreational purposes, or are recreational but over 35 Kg. "

Justin Stiltner commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Drones banned on Arctic and Antarctic cruises
"I think that banned may be the wrong word here.  I would have preferred to see "not allowed on cruises" instead.  Banned to me carries the meaning that some government entity has banned them, not that the members of these tour associations have…"

Justin Stiltner commented on Colin Snow's blog post FAA Proposed Drone Rules: Market Opportunity Winners and Losers
"I believe the visual line of sight stipulations are primarily to be able to sense other aircraft / people in the area, not so much as to be able to maintain control of the aircraft.  If you look at it from a safety perspective this makes sense,…"

Justin Stiltner replied to Justin Stiltner's discussion Iris+ operations at high altitude 6000ft-10000ft in IRIS
"I ordered a set of those and just tried them, they do not fit on the iris prop adapters.  It looks like the Iris threaded shafts are a little larger than the phantoms.  I will report back when I find ones that do fit.
I measured the nuts and they…"

Justin Stiltner posted a discussion in IRIS
I have a project that will require my Iris+ to takeoff and fly anywhere from 6000ft to 10000ft above sea level.  The aircraft will only be about 300ft above the ground.  I have run the numbers in ecalc and found that my required throttle will be…

Justin Stiltner commented on Chris Anderson's blog post FAA study finds trained pilots *worse* at operating drones
"Charles, I think the reason a lot of folks are up in arms is that the FAA currently also wants folks to actually get the license, as in do all of the time in the air in the real plane and solo.  I doubt you would have many folks complaining if the…"
