I look forward to exploring with you the opportunities and challenges of the future of unmanned aircraft systems. As is so often the case in our country, technology moves quicker than policymaking. This is […]
While we’re all currently focused on the issues surrounding commercial UAS for aerial imaging, data networking and small package delivery in our near future, what do we know about commercial UGS (Unmanned Ground Systems) plans for use in our daily lives? With resistance to getting the Amazon Drones off the ground due to current FAA regulatory indecision, maybe […]
Using a drone to get imagery for 3D mapping is rapidly catching on, and thanks to Pix4D software, they’ve made strides in bringing the technology to the small UAV market. We’ve only just begun to see where this technology is going to take us, and how we can best utilize it for industry. New designs in […]

After months of planning and preparing for the launch of this new addition to one of the world’s largest air shows and fly-ins (attended by over a 1/2 million people in a week), the reality of what we had prepared for along with the EAA management and staff was now upon us on opening day.
There are quite a few of us who like to fly the GoPro camera because of the video shooting options. This is especially true for people flying the 3DR Solo. One of the drawbacks is the fisheye effect that the small goPro lens produces. Its easy enough to remove it in Premiere Pro or After […]
A really neat feature that is coveted by drone makers is fully autonomous flying. I say “coveted” because it’s “sort” of there. First of all what is it? You can open a map and set points on the map for the drone to fly to. There are called waypoints. Once you have plotted your waypoints, […]
