Comments to FAA re: UAS Prohibition

This is a follow up to my post earlier today, detailing the FAA’s proposed prohibition on flying RC aircraft via “first person view” (FPV) as well as operating commercially.  If you missed that post you can get caught up HERE. For those willing to comment on the FAA’s memo of interpretation, I wanted to share what I…



FAA aims to outlaw RC “drones”

I’ve been doing some research into the laws pertaining to flying my quadcopter with a camera attached.  I’m contemplating pursuing it commercially, since it’s a rare occasion where I have a skill-set that could potentially be used to make income for my family (most of my skill-sets are next to worthless in terms of supporting a…



Lake Minnewaska AP

Huge thanks to my parents, “Mimi and Poppy”, for watching Scarlett this afternoon!  I finally got the lawn mowed, and had just enough time to run up to Lake Minnewaska State Park to catch the ‘golden hour’ of spectacular lighting.  Well, technically I was a little early for golden hour, but that late in the…



Aerial Photography

I’ve been doing a lot of ‘AP’ lately (which is what cool people call Aerial Photography).  I’m really enjoying the aerial perspective and having a new and exciting method of image capture. Here is my 1-minute demo reel showing my favorite shots so far:   The industry surrounding using these remote control drones- for lack of…



Ellenville Aero-Photoshoot

So there’s a photo I’ve been wanting to get for a long, long time… and I decided the clouds and trees and everything looked just right to try for it today.  To get the shot, I’d need to fly with my nose-boom camera mount and my Panasonic GH2 (GoPro image quality doesn’t even come close!)….



Wallerby

Down at Wallaby Ranch in Davenport, FL doing a landing clinic sponsored by Wills Wing for their annual “demo days” and anniversary celebration event.  We had favorable weather and filmed landings this morning, with the first of two classroom sessions after breakfast was served.  Tomorrow morning looks like rain, but we’ll be doing the second…



6k Winter Day

Fun day of flying, mostly with Lindsey- although he and I didn’t connect much aloft. It was truly the “best day of the year”, which isn’t saying a whole lot since it’s only March.  I was able to break through 6k ft MSL for the first time in 2014… which ain’t a bad day considering…



Cowboy Up

Spring is in the air and I’m getting the itch to freestyle again… Here are some memories from a session last summer with the most excellent Bart and Tiki at Cowboy Up hang gliding, near Jackson WY.



Road Rampin’

With all the snow we’ve had lately, the road up to the Ellenville launch is impassible. Not a problem, though, because there is a lower “road ramp” right off of a scenic overlook on Rt 52 that was built for just such occasions. People have been launching off of Rt 52 long before the current…
