We know that drones can achieve military exploration, long-range strikes, intelligence gathering, etc., and what role do they have in the civilian field? First of all, we must know that drones are a relatively broad concept, not just limited to drones. There are also self-driving cars. Since drones are so large in large fields, what kind of benefits can drones bring to us in the civilian field? Let me introduce them to you below.

Agricultural

In agriculture, drones can observe crop growth and harvest, spray pesticides, fertilize, and plant seeds. For animal husbandry, agricultural drones can also be used to monitor animals and collect animal data.

Construction company

In terms of construction, inspection drones can realize project monitoring and supervision, and can at a glance understand the progress of the project, just like a contractor, maybe the future drones can also replace the workers to achieve engineering construction.

Express industry

In the express delivery industry, express drones can already be delivered to your door. Although the current drone's load capacity is not strong, express drones are still a very promising application, especially in those areas with inconvenient traffic or dangerous areas such as mountainous areas. .

Environmental aspect

Drones can be used to monitor the ecological environment, and can also monitor animals without disturbing them, and contribute to the protection of nature.

Internet media

In the past,...Continue Reading

Some stuff came this week ..
Eachine Tx06 FPV cam / tx

All should be relatively light ,
I might go with that 800mm Wing .. The Bee 590 looks like it will get crowded really quickly .

Swallow 800mm Wing ..
Pictured = glue drying ...
Wow this wing warps easy ( soft foam ) , hopefully those flashlights will help it dry straight .. ( I hope )

 Surveying and mapping drones are now used in many areas of work. We can see that people have developed a variety of different functions in urban management, and also brought everyone to the construction and management of the city. A new way, let's take a look at a few main scenarios of drone applications.



I. 3D modeling

Mapping and modeling are the strengths of drones. Through fast and detailed multi-angle mapping, people can effectively help people quickly model cities in three dimensions, which can effectively help cities to effectively manage all aspects of the city. , And can also achieve very high accuracy, ensuring that 3D modeling is accurate and comprehensive, and no low-level errors occur.

 2. Traffic Management

The mapping drone can also play a strong role in urban traffic management. We can see that because the drone travels in the air, it can reach the scene more quickly when there are some traffic jams and inconveniences. For on-site scanning and image transmission, you can also use the drone's communication function to better guide on-site personnel to perform correct operations, so that traffic management issues can also be greatly assisted.
    
Project Construction
    
Now in engineering construction, you can also see the mapping of drones. Because drones have now universally used digital surveying and mapping technology, which has overcome many traditional problems, it can now also be powerful in engineering construction. The practicality of the project can provide effective data help for the perspective of the project and the construction situation so that everyone can have a better experience in these aspects.

Wind again from the right direction
forecast called for 15/16 mph and ramping down
When I got to the top at 2:30 I found steady 28 with pulsing sustained gust in the mid 30's
If I had know I would have brought heavier ships..
I flew my 30"12 oz Sizzle for 45 minutes - a amazing little wing ! see {https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...16-GEMS-Sizzle }
I had snow squalls blowing over that limited visibility ,really had to concentrate to keep it in site and not get blown over the back
Next I put my Parkzone Ka -8 up , the wind had subsided to the mid to high 20's most of the time ,blasted around with it for the next 45 or so minutes
When it started to get dark I landed and headed home - a Great way to end the day

If you're in need of a LiPo cell balance checker, balancer, and USB charger: This little iSDT BattGo is worth a look. It's not cheap but it is effective and performs as expected.

What are the design principles of multi-rotor drones? The multi-rotor UAV design is a comprehensive system, in terms of structure, including aerodynamics, structure, strength, power, materials, technology, shape and so on. Through the overall design indicators, the system is modularized, the modules and the interfaces between the modules are designed, and finally the overall design of the multi-rotor UAV is realized through system integration.

A good industrial designer must be an excellent structural designer. As mentioned earlier, the industrial design of the drone is related to the overall shape, and the shape design is related to the external structural layout, so it is about the multi-rotor drone In the early design stage, the design of Tianma Starry Sky can be performed according to the design concept and design skills. Using divergent thinking, the basic content of the multi-rotor drone's use, function, structure and form is explained.



1.Use

In recent years, with the rapid development of multi-rotor drone technology, there are more and more application scenarios. In military terms, multi-rotor drones are divided into reconnaissance and target aircraft. Reconnaissance aircraft are used to complete battlefield reconnaissance and surveillance, Positioning and firing, damage assessment, electronic warfare, etc .; civil aspects, such as border patrol, logistics and transportation, aerial photography, aerial prospecting, disaster surveillance, traffic patrol,...Continue Reading

     Speaking of what tools are currently used when surveying and mapping, currently when surveying outdoors, especially when surveying large areas, people generally choose to use surveying and mapping drones. This is very practical and very Intelligent surveying and mapping tools when used, must also bring many different high-quality effects to people.

     First, high efficiency

     The use of such drones for surveying and mapping effectively accelerates the surveying and mapping work. In the past, manpower required days or even tens of days of work. It can be completed in just a few hours with drones. Effective promotion.

So most of the surveying and mapping work has been handed over to drones, which can effectively help people save workload and bring better surveying and mapping results.

     Second, high accuracy

     The use of surveying and mapping drones is not only convenient and efficient, but also its accuracy is very high, because the transmission image can be generated in real-time, and at the same time, the three-dimensional image can be directly given by the subsequent image generation. The data does not need to be retested repeatedly, which brings more convenient and practical surveying results to people.

     Third, flexible and high

     What we can also see is that with the application of various intelligent technologies in mapping drones, these types of devices are now more flexible to use, not only based on the images returned in real-time. The drone can be operated remotely. At the same time, the next mapping route can be set directly on the chip of the drone, so that the device can automatically survey and map the whole process, which is very convenient and brings a more flexible experience for everyone.
