    A380 video analysis

    I couldn't resist playing around some more with the recent video purporting to be a recording of an Emirates A380 departing MRU in Mauritius. There has been much debate online, including an earlier thread on this forum about whether this was real or fake. It turns out that quite a lot of...

The recreational market must be a potential goldmine for an insurance company that ticks the right boxes. Who do you use? He's a quick over view of...

    Drone vs Quadcopter (Multirotor)

    It may sound silly but worth a try. Some ignorants, unaware of consequences started this long time ago calling flying multirotor - the drone.

I've uploaded screenshots from B4UFLY and UAV Forecast. You can see from both (especially UAV...

    A little video I did in Lake Powell, near the Bullfrog Marina.

    I must say, it was more difficult landing on the boat than I initially thought with obstacle avoidance turned on. It was a bit unnerving at first, but I got used to taking off and manually landing on a platform 2' by 2'. And obviously, return to home doesn't work when the boat is constantly...
