Hi all,Im new to the forum and to this whole developing field. Having said that, I am a remote sensing guy and own an aerial imaging business. We have been working in Hawaii mapping forests with…Continue
"No :) You can figure it out for yourself. All you need to know is the average operating power in watts of the aircraft. Propeller efficiency and power to weight. Energy losses (ESC's Radios, Cameras, Autopilot/GPS/Compass ect... and battery…"
"I think your probably very correct in that statement. But lets just say for arguments sake that they can get even an hour with a camera on board. Do you or anyone else have an idea how they would do that??"
"Watch out for smoke and mirrors! That's probably without a camera striped down and indoors. I'm just saying do some power calculations. I bet these micro copters are selling for $20,000+ as well. Don't believe everything you see or…"
"No kidding. Hawaii is a crazy place to fly. As you said things are still closed for commercial flying with UAVs but we are working with the University and TNC as research partners so we can get a working platform in place and tested for…"
"Lol yeah flying a helicopter in Hawaii can indeed be fun! :) Cross over the crest of one of those cliffs and your at an instant 40 degree angle possibly more!
Right now it's not legal to make money flying a UAV in the states still a no drone…"
Hi all,Im new to the forum and to this whole developing field. Having said that, I am a remote sensing guy and own an aerial imaging business. We have been working in Hawaii mapping forests with high resolution aerial imagery. With resent changes and development we are working to come up with a platform and configuration that will allow us to image the more difficult to reach and fly areas. The basic issue is this, most turn key systems are either limited by consistent resolution on the…See More
