UK UAV Regulations Explained I had a look around the site, and it seems that the discussion on UAV regulation is mostly centred around America and the FAA. All very informative, but if, like me, you live in England, not very helpful. So, not wanting to get myself into trouble, I headed over to the UK Civil Aviation Authority's website, and searched... and searched... and then gave up, and e-mailed General Enquiries. Taking Flight: Drone Photography & Video with Jeff Foster Aerial photography and videography captures some of the most stunning images out there, but the tools, techniques, and gadgets used to capture the action are often confusing and difficult to master. Join Jeff Foster and special guests for an exciting and highly informative class and get a running start at unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) photography. In this course, you'll learn how to capture stunning aerial shots with an impressive range of aerial gear – including; 3D Robotics multicopters, DJI multirotors, GoPros, DSLRs and more. You'll get an introduction to the best tools for beginners and see demonstrations of the sophisticated gear used by the most in-demand professional photographers and filmmakers.

Tarot T-2D Brushless Gimbal for GoPro HERO 3 For hobby and professional use, gives you perfectly leveled video footage at all time - Tarot GoPro HERO 3 Gimbal This is a piece of high end camera equipement, driven by Brushless Motor to give you the fastest and smooothest respond, no matter how you move the drone, the camera will still give you perfectly leveled image! Using the latest 3-Axis Gyroscope technology, it picks up the sligtest movement on the drone and tell the brushless motor to compensate, the motion is seamless, like magic. The gimbal has a Pitch (Tilt) angle control, you can plug it into a empty slot on your RC transmitter or use another remote controller and ask another guy to take control of the Tilt angle, that will make the footage look good.

Unmanned Aircraft and Aircraft Systems Please refer to the Model Aircraft webpage for more information about recreational flying. Introduction Traditionally unmanned aircraft have only been used by model aircraft enthusiasts for recreational purposes. However, they are increasingly being used for professional applications such as surveillance and data-gathering. Such aircraft are likely to be operated in a way that may pose a greater risk to the general public. Unlike manned aircraft or model aircraft used for recreational purposes, there are no established operating guidelines so operators may not be aware of the potential dangers or indeed the responsibility they have towards not endangering the public. Brushless Gimbal V3.0 Controller w/ Sensor (Martinez) - Flight Controllers This controller is for use with brushless direct drive (BLDC) motors. Included sensor unit with gyro and accelerometer is mounted on the camera platform; the controller unit receives data from IMU to define camera inclination angles. PID-controller calculates the amount of compensation and sends command to the power unit, which controls the current in the windings and thus the direction of the vector of magnetic field in the stator. Magnetic field moves the rotor to the right position.

Members Insurance A question that is regularly asked of the office staff is "When does insurance cover start when I join the BMFA?". As with all seemingly simple questions there are always two answers. They are summarised as follows: Membership through an Affiliated Club DIY GoPro3 video out cable GoPro just released their new Hero3 HD camera lineup, which boasts being 30% smaller, 25% lighter while being able to deliver 1080p in 60 frames per second and even 2.7K in 30FPS . But while shrinking the camera, Gopro removed the 2.5mm video out jack. But fear not, the GoPro 3 is still able to output the composite video we need for FPV flying. Instead of a normal 5 pin mini USB connector, GoPro chose the much less common 10 pin version.
