3DR keeps doing it, they keep charging a "tax" for international orders. When you are placing an order in the 3DR store, during checkout it adds the "tax" automatically.Please note this is NOT the…Continue

3DR charged me Sales Tax even though I order from Canada. As distributor and UAV integrator, I have been ordering from 3DR for years now, and I started to get charged HST on the last three orders.…Continue

"Can someone explain how all the electronics have been waterproofed? There's also mention of "redundancy" in reference to electronics getting wet...that seems to be saying if some electronic component gets wet and fails, that a backup…"

AEROMAPPER 300 & 42Mp camera with PPK bundle: unrivaled resolution & accuracy

Many owners of small sub-1Kg flying wings or multirotor drones at some point encounter the need to cover more area in less time without (hopefully) sacrificing too much ground resolution, or just increase productivity when confronted with large area survey projects. In many other cases, small drones can’t just cope with the wind which shows no sign of easing, the deadline…See More

WATERPROOF DRONES SOLVES MAPPING & INSPECTION ON MARINE AREAS

The Aeromapper Talon Amphibious is the only truly affordable fixed wing UAV system that can be used for inspection and mapping in marine environments.  The UAV system delivers high resolution georeferenced imagery as well as video feed from up to 30 kms from the operators. After completing its mission the UAV later returns and safely lands on the water, adequately serving maritime Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations. But how to ensure proper waterproofing for repeated landings on the…See More

"We had a similar experience with the pitot tube as well.  A bit surprising maybe, but the water has trouble forcing it's way very far in.  Our experience with flipping upside down was in about 25kt winds and fairly heavy swells was…"

Mauricio commented on Mauricio's blog post Pioneering steps into fixed wing - water landing drones in marine ecology
"@Crut, after landing on open ocean in winds in excess of 40km/h the drone can stay floating indefinitely and no swell or wind will flip it over, even in in very large swells. WE have experienced this already in +three dozen landings on the ocean and…"

"May I ask how you water proof the pitot tube/airspeed sensor? Also if the plane is sealed what do you do about the barometer maintain correct altitude?"

Curt Olson commented on Mauricio's blog post Pioneering steps into fixed wing - water landing drones in marine ecology
"Cool, yes, you really need to be able to submerge the plane because it will get splashed by big waves, flipped upside down by the wind, will get run over by your boat, and every other possible thing you could imagine will happen.  Our plane had…"
