Drones...

Recommended Posts

7.46am - I'm on the wireless discussing council plans to fine drone users and drone privacy implications. :thumbup: They're also using my soundbite on the news!

I'm also in the local paper!

There will be an autograph signing session in my local pub later if anyone wants to meet someone famous!

Took some pics for an architect a couple of weeks ago. With the correct implementation of the permissions we're given by the CAA, it's quite easy to safely fly in congested areas.

This was an interesting job on Tuesday. Working for a surveyor, we photogrpahed 119 hectares of building site to measure with very good accuracy all of the stockpiles on site. 

Around 1,200 images...

Turns into this point cloud map with 16,000,000 datapoints...

Which looks like this a little closer. These aren't photos but the millions of points all of which can be used for measurement datum.

It needs to be run through 4 more software packages to improve accuracy yet but here's a rough volume measurement just from the pics..., it's not bad!

Oh, and so what was the weather like at Gatwick? :lol:

:lol:

The investigation into Gatwick has just been closed. £790,000 it cost. Not one suspect, not one picture of a drone. 

I wonder if the airport would have sold for more later than week than the £2.9bn it fetched if that story hadn't happened!

Ah but, just as importantly, how many anti-drone systems have been sold to airports since the Gatwick episode, eh? ;)

West Sussex council has had a £36,000 drone for 18 months and has never flown it. Wonder why they bought it in the first place ,perhaps they might sell it @bibs

Because they didn't use their own money? (unless it's different in the UK of course ^^)

What sort of a drone costs that much? That's the price of a car. :shock:


All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.
