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

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…"

"I assume then that you replace the pitot tube each water landing."

"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…"

"Curt, waterproofing works perfect on our UAV.  The photo below may answer the question better! as part of our quality control the UAV can be submerged into water and launched after. Even in the case water gets in, all electronic components,…"

"@Sergiu Yes, we all know the Puma lands on water as well. The difference between the two is that the AMTalon Amphibious carries two sets of cameras, has a link range of +30Km, and costs less than $15K USD. Puma is a military UAV, therefore pretty…"
