Canadian UAV Site Selection Tool

UAV Site Selection Tool

The team at the National Research Council (NRC) of Canada has built up an interactive UAV Site Selection tool that can help Canadian UAV operators select flying sites away from aerodromes and built-up areas within Canada.

If you’re planning on flying your UAV in Canada, this could be a helpful tool for you to reference while planning your flight. Input the latitude and longitude of the location that you are looking to fly within to find airport/aerodrome contact information, airport management, radio details and more.

For more information and to access the map, visit the interactive map on the NRC’s website.

Atlantic Cape Community College

Our friends at Atlantic Cape Community College in Mays Landing New Jersey have been showcasing our Draganflyers in their growing UAS Program for quite some time and we’re thrilled to see them get some traction. They’re planning to offer a UAS Operation course starting in August and we’re glad that they’ve chosen to use our systems in their course.

For more information on their programming and to read more about their UAS course, read the full article here.

What is a Draganflyer?

The Draganflyer is an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle that provides real-time data from an aerial perspective. This gives public safety personnel, professional photographers, and videographers an “eye in the sky” vantage point that was previously unattainable without large teams and costly equipment. The patented, compact, and collapsible airframe is quick-to-deploy and easy-to-use, making the Draganflyer an invaluable tool for collecting critical, tactical information in a safe and timely manner. The unrestricted benefits of an aerial view with razor-sharp imaging allow us to accomplish what was once next to impossible. With this capability, the world as we see it, understand it, and record it, is changed.

How high will it fly?

In most countries the agency regulating the use of the air space typically limits aircraft flying to 122m (400 ft.) – 152m (500 ft.) above ground level. However, the helicopter will perform at altitudes up in the mountains to 2,428m (8,000 ft.).

How long does the battery last?

You won’t like this answer but it’s the truth… your results will vary. In very general terms, and depending on the model you are flying, you can expect to be in the air from 10-45 minutes before landing for a battery change. The time varies because of the weather, your flying habits, what camera you’re carrying and how well you’ve been caring for your batteries.

With the default or lightest payloads you will get about 12 minutes of flight time with the Guardian, 17-22 minutes with the X4-P & X4-ES, and 30-36 minutes with the Commander.
