Got a New Drone? It’s Time to Get Up to Speed with Safety
Until fairly recently, drone aircraft were limited to military use, and some niche professionals involved with intelligence, photography, cartography, and industries like real estate and construction. Today, the scene is vastly different, and now there are millions of people considering buying drones every single year. At the end of 2016, a major UK retailer reported a 60% increase in drone sales, illustrating just how desirable these small UAVs have become. If you’re the proud owner of a new drone, then you’re going to have countless hours of enjoyable flight in front of you, however, you’re going to need to make sure that you’re using a drone in a safe and responsible way. The United Kingdom has some of the busiest airspace in the world, so operating a drone can be riskier and inherently more dangerous than in other countries. If you want to be certain that you’re on the right side of safety and the law, then you’re going to have to get up to speed with the rules and best safety practices for when your drone is in the air. Know the Rules Before Operating a Drone As fun as drone piloting can be, it’s essential that you understand […]
Amazon Air to Work Closely with the UK Government
It seems that everything is falling into place for Amazon and their parcel delivery by air service. Most recently, Amazon has partnered with the UK government, allowing the company to go ahead with testing of their Amazon Air drone delivery service in rural and suburban areas throughout the country. Amazon has been given permission from the government, as well as the UK Civil Aviation Authority, to begin testing line of sight drone operations in specific rural and lightly populated suburban areas. In addition to line of sight flight, the company will be allowed to test sensor based flight, with drones avoiding obstacles without direct human control, and another part of the testing will focus on the feasibility of a single operator overseeing the semi-autonomous flight of several delivery drones. Amazon’s Vision of a Future with Drones Amazon has been talking about drone technology since at least 2003. The company has a long term goal of delivering a significant portion of their smaller products using drones. According to representatives from Amazon, drone packages will be limited to 5lb. in weight, however, UAV technology could mean that deliveries would be completed in 30 minutes in areas that have drone coverage. This could […]
Amazon Has Made Its First Delivery with Prime Air Service
Recently it was announced that Amazon had partnered with the Government of the United Kingdom, as well as the UK Civil Aviation Authority, to gain permission for a drone delivery testing program in rural and suburban areas. The tests were outlined to the public as being focused on automatic obstacle avoidance through drone sensors, line of sight operation, and semi-autonomous operation with an operator overseeing the flights of multiple drones. This was exciting news not just for Amazon and their customers, but for the drone community as a whole. It has now been revealed that Amazon’s first drone delivery test was a success, with the company sending a small package to one of their UK test customers in Cambridgeshire. Big Step Made with a Small Package This first delivery was completed last year on the 7th of December. The delivery took 13 minutes’ time in total, and the flight was fully autonomous with no human pilot directly controlling the navigation of the drone. Because Amazon’s drone payloads are limited to 5lb. with current custom UAVs, the delivery was made up of only an Amazon Fire Stick (a device for turning any TV into an Amazon Smart TV), and a bag […]
Could Drones Be Used for Amazon UK Deliveries in the near Future?
Going as far back as 2013, Amazon has had some big plans for the use of drones in their delivery services. As the largest ecommerce company in the world, and the largest retailer in the United States, Amazon is no stranger to the logistics of shipping consumer products. With recent advancements in drone technology, the company wants to be able to deliver some of their smaller packages to your door, using nothing but an unmanned aerial vehicle. With a newly signed partnership with the UK government, Amazon has even start testing outside of their primary market. Delivery by Drone – Is the Concept Ready for Deployment? Four years ago, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos optimistically said that he wanted to be able to offer a new Amazon Prime Air delivery service within the next five years. Although not quite there yet, it’s not unfeasible to think that Amazon might be able to deploy their service within this decade. Traditionally, retailers and distributors have relied on ground, sea, and air logistics. For local deliveries, third party courier companies are usually used, after products are passed through main centralised dispatch centres. Amazon wants to cut out the last leg of the distribution process, […]
DJI and Elia Locardi Set to Host Aerial Photography Workshop World Tour

DJI workshops cover all aspects of drone photography, from getting the best out of a drone in terms of performance and handling, to finding the best shots and locations for video capture, as well as perfecting stills and […]
Drone Assist App Popularity Shows UK Drone Community’s Commitment to Safety
Safety is a major concern for enthusiasts within the drone community, the government, and civil and commercial aviation companies in the United Kingdom. While drones offer plenty to be excited about, especially with advancing technologies, there’s still an ever-present risk if the right safety measures aren’t observed or enforced. Drones have become such an important topic, that government and industry backed organisations like Drone Safe have emerged, helping to spread the awareness of drone safety by providing simple rules and a code of conduct for both private and commercial drone operators. In the latest news, it appears that the push for safer drone use has so far been a success, with up to 10,000 users signing up for a new NATS (National Air Traffic Services) Drone Assist app that allows for safer piloting through a convenient smartphone app. Using Innovative Software to Address Some of the Risks of Drone Piloting The biggest challenge for any drone operator, is finding a location that is both conditionally ideal and safe to fly in. Followers of the Drone Code will know that in rural and lightly populated areas, drones must be flown at distances of at least 50 metres from people and buildings. […]

Using aerial video for property marketing is undoubtedly one of the most effective ways of showing the most significant elements of a property, like location, layout, neighbouring properties, boundaries, proximity to other buildings, towns, villages and facilities. It is also a very quick and convenient method of ‘touring’ the premises to show different elevations, outbuildings and, of course, the view of the surrounding area. So why not do it? The usual responses are cost and inconvenience. Videos can be expensive to make and deliver and typically require a diverse range of skills and resources, and hosting them can be a nightmare of bandwidth and and download problems if not tackled properly. The good news here is that we have devised a video package that includes all the necessary skills and resources at unusually reasonable prices, far less than traditional costs. Even a simple short video like this one can convey far more than ground level photos or video, and far more than mere words. It also doesn’t need to be outrageously expensive or complex to film and edit. We can film, edit and host videos at very short notice and provide electronic files, embed code, or upload them to the medium of your […]
