(Authored by Trent Siggard) We are singlehandedly experiencing the drone revolution as its happening. Thousands of people are hungry to get a chunk of the expected 4 billion dollar drone market by the end of 2016 and there have been many people who tried but failed to get into the drone market. We’re also in the […]
2015 was a whirlwind year for drones — consumer drone sales hit records, the FAA called for drone registration, and the commercial drone regulation deadline was missed. We saw drones epically (and dangerously) crash, and we also saw epic innovation in the technology, with everything from improved cameras to quads that are easier to fly than ever.
DJI this week announced new plans to expand the list of its restricted flight locations to include places like prisons and power plants. The software update is an expansion of its geofencing program, a virtual barrier which literally prohibits the drone from taking off or flying into areas in its geofence. DJI already uses geofencing in “no-fly-zones,” which […]

With their demo video going viral in all the social channels this week and raising lots of questions and controversy over their DroneDefender™ concept, I reached out to talk with Battelle’s PR and development team for a phone interview today and to provide some clarification on just how their system works.
Search and Rescue (SaR) using sUAS and personal drones is becoming more accepted and practical as technology advancements continue – as well as public perception. Small success stories are popping up every week and more and more drone pilots are preparing to volunteer in their communities as the network grows.
Researchers and developers at Stanford University along with Adobe, 3DR and others, have created a tool to help both experienced and novice videographers get better aerial shots from their sUAS and camera drones.
I have been working all summer on new projects with drones. Here is the one that I have worked on the longest. The technology has finally come along far enough to showcase this amazing new capture and display process. We will start off in this post just showing a couple of 3D Model Maps that […]
This week brought a long-await announcement from DJI that finally brings a new camera option to the DJI Inspire 1 platform. The question is, is this really the “game changer” some people are calling it, or will it really make any difference. We will dissect some of the features and see what this will really […]
