    Quick video flying close to powerlines

    Again, I didn't expect a lot of people to agree with me. A small tree limb falling on a power line can cause can short on a circuit. Just think about someone in the OR being operated on, or some old folks with oxygen machines to keep them alive, or business owners losing customers because...

    Quick video flying close to powerlines

    As a photographer and videographer for a medium-size power company, I did not enjoy this video footage, or any videos of hobbyists flying too close to power lines. If you are licensed and hired as a high-voltage power line inspector, I would not have any issues with that. For hobbyists like...

    What flight times are you guys/girls getting?

    20 mins or 25% battery life whichever comes first (just to be safe).

    Non-commercial use for my company

    OK. I just want to make sure I doing the right thing. It is just a matter of convincing management to pay for my license, or else, they don't get drone clips. Thank you all.

    Non-commercial use for my company

    My future drone clips will not "further a business" or making money. This is 100% for internal use to assess damages so we can send out crews, not thing commercial. Hope this clarifies my initial post.

    Non-commercial use for my company

    Hello all, I am a corporate photographer for my company (electric utility). I've been using DSLRs and camcorders to capture everything from corporate events, meetings, training materials, especially during natural storms (wind, snow, ice, etc...) I understand that an FAA license is...

    'Low noise' props??

    What about prop shadows with the new Plattinum props? I was thinking about getting these new props but now I am concerned about ghostly, horizontal lines and props shadows on video clips... More discussion here: You Might Want To Watch This Before Buying Platinum Pro Props

    Got attacked by eagle.... scared the crap put of me!!

    I wonder if DJI or other drone manufacturers would come up with an ultrasonic wave or ping (as a firmware upgrade or an add on mod) device that can deter large birds from coming close to our precious bird...

    Question about Costco Deal

    Not a bad deal. However, I don't often use the original bag because, like most of us drone pilots do, is to start adding accessories to the MP: extra batteries, iPad, antenna extenders, mods, etc. Pretty soon, you are gonna say to yourself: hmmm...that bag is getting tight and I need an...

    Here you go. As you can see, I never flew too far from shore... At 2:02, you'll see me at the bottom right of screen (red swim trunk walking). Enjoy and feel free to upload any future vids.

    After 3 months I finally took my first flight(s) with my Mavic Pro! Pics!

    Great picts! That tennis court is a like a nice private CopterPad to takeoff and land. I wanted to wait like you until I watched all the YT vids and read forums like this, but I had to bite the bullet and bring it to Cancun with me after only 4 days of owning it (Yikes!). I was very careful...
