Hey Pete, good to hear.. great day here also.. some nice vineyard shots . Will follow yr youtube channel !.. You obviously have great faith in your Inspire!.. great distances! I guess I was a little "weirded-out" over my dodgy GPS/COMPASS issue.. seems though once its sorted itself its fine for the rest of the flight.. Im relaxing a bit more now. But love to hear how you "manage" your long flights (mentally). Cheers, TimHey Tim,
Shout-out from the shaky city of Christchurch here. Beautiful day down in Chch today, 26 degrees and not a breath of wind. Ideal day for flying but stuck to a desk!
Good stuff, gulls, magpies and swallows all give me grief.Hello Tim, Brin, Pete and others. I'm a new owner based in Auckland. Just tried a few short flights ... flock of about 20 seagulls circling and squaking at the drone whilst about 40m up had me seriously worried yesterday I have to say!! Flying on the latest firmware and, apart from savage seagulls, all good so far ;-)
Hi kiwidrone, good to hear it's all going well but before it doesn't I suggest you join and login to airshare.co.nz and check out the rules. You must stay within line off site during all of your flight in New Zealand. Stay safeHi guys,
I'm a new Inspire 1 pilot based in Feilding (near Palmerston North). Previously had Parrot ARDrone2 and Bebop drones but the Inspire is in another class completely!
Still getting the hang of the Inspire and have taken it out to just short of 1km before started losing signal. Wouldn't have dreamed of trying this with my previous drones!!
Hi RobHI Guys
Tim, Just had a look at your web page. - Wow very impressive and you guys really have some beautiful scenery in NZ. In South Africa the governing bodies are starting to crack down on us drone pilots. They are proposing a Pilots license for us. (I'm really in favor of this as it promotes responsible flying) but I suspect that someone is going to try to make a quick buck out of the process. At the moment it looks as if the license is just shy of a full PPL.....
My question really is around the flying regulations in NZ, do you have to have a certification before you can fly?
