Flying the DJI Mavic Pro

We have been flying our DJI Mavic Pro UAS for a month and we really love it.  The video is very nice and clear and the still photos are wonderful.  Included in this post is a video we took at O’Fallon’s St Ellen Mine Park last month.

We are still learning how to use the Mavic, but it is an incredible UAS.  This UAS is very revolutionary in its workflow and integrated systems.

AAAE Airfields Geospatial Conference

Exhibiting at the AAAE Airport Geospatial Technologies Conference in Reno this week.  Meeting lots of great geospatial professionals all focused on airfields.  Only 5 exhibitors here, so a good opportunity to stand out.

VerticalGeo at the Missouri GIS Conference

Last week we exhibited at the Missouri GIS Conference.  We brought our large DJI S1000 Spreadwings UAS with the FLIR Thermal Camera attached to show conference attendees what you can learn from thermal imagery.  We had a great time at the conference and met lots of wonderful people.  We will see you again next time!

Surveying and Mapping with Fixed Wing UAS: A Fly-Off Between Leading UAS Providers

I just came across a great White Paper by Black Swift Technology that compares their Swift Trainer Fixed Wing UAS with the Sensefly Ecobee and the Trimble UX5.  Of course, it shows how well the Swift Trainer does compared to the others.  Shocker that their study shows it out pereforms the rest!  If you are interested in Fixed Wing UAS Technology you should read the comparison.
