    Sony a7rii yuneec tornado h920

    Something’s not right with your range. I fly a 920+ and regularly go out 550+ meters with no issues. I’m U.S. and don’t normally use metric measure but 1600’-2000’ is common for me. Adapting a Gremsy gimbal and Connex for video transmission would be a good direction to go. You would want to...

    Which drone for Real Estate?

    The Yuneec 4K will work just fine but it has the same "issue" all drones have when it goes up. The lens viewing angle is much too wide. R.E. agents do not want to show the entire neighborhood, or the property next door. They want the one, and only one property or structure. Lenses can be...

    Thunderpower part needed

    Long time getting back to this but Hitec markets a balance board that provides connectors for many different connector types and provides balance taps for 2S to 6S batteries. About $20.00 at better hobby shops.

    Thunderpower part needed

    Doesn't have to be Thunderpower. There are lots of different versions of this on Amazon, Tower Hobbies, or any of the FPV outfits.

    Survey / Mapping / Inspection / Post Processing Hourly Rate

    I did read your previous from top to bottom and the rates that were reflected indicated the fee structure was significantly lower than most professional level hourly rates. Where site flying/inspection has a two person crew going for less than a single person operation suggests something isn't...

It's pretty easy to determine what your hourly rate would be as an independent contractor and add to that for services additional to your engineering specialty. Sent from my iPhone using...

    losi vs jst connectors

    Visit Mouser Electronics and review how many types of JST connectors there are. What you depict is but a single version of a great many. Losi is nice but expensive for what they are and not as widely available. Select a connector by establishing what it needs to do and where it is to be...

    PolarPro Newb Question, Please Help!

    Most of the time no more than an ND4 filter is needed. When shooting highly reflective subjects, like snow in the sunlight, a higher value is needed. If you can obtain just one filter that will handle 90% of your work it makes sense to do some more shopping. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
