UAS for Search and Rescue

UAS for Search and Rescue

Looking through the Trees When an autistic 11-year-old on his bike went missing with his dad’s rifle this past August, Alaska State Troopers had a problem.

Have DartGun, Will Travel!

Have DartGun, Will Travel!

South Africa’s Super Drone Advanced drones armed with double-barrel dart guns—that sounds like a scifi movie if ever I heard one. But it’s true—and not in a sinister way.

Composition Aerial Photography

Composition Aerial Photography

Taking photos from dizzying heights doesn’t necessarily mean that they will be interesting or effective. Once you’ve located yourself on a high altitude with a drone, aimlessly shooting will not guarantee you any visually pleasing results. In fact, the most common problem I’ve observed with amateur photographers is that, once they’ve made their drone airborne, […]

Cloverleaf and Helical antenna explained

Cloverleaf and Helical antenna explained

A cloverleaf antenna is considered omnidirectional and a helical is directional. An omni-directional antenna sends and receives signals in all directions, so it’s a great choice for video transmitters. A helical antenna produces a cone-shaped signal in front of it and has a small pocket behind it to receive a signal. It will provide better […]

Aerial rebels with a cause

Raphael Pirker and Team BlackSheep Back in 2003, first-person view (FPV) was little more than a half-baked idea in the mind of a young Swiss- Austrian student studying at the University of Zurich. But it was a potent mixture of “why not” attitude, plenty of spare time, and living in a scenic area that led […]
