Hi All, my name is John Vermeer and I live in Sydney Australia where we are enjoying a few days of 40 degree celsius temperatures which makes flying here interesting but
the quad motors cope well. I have flown in 44 degrees and no problem with the motors I do have to watch the batteries though.
This will seem strange to some of you as you are having lots of snow and freezing temperatures and needing to pre-warm your batteries.
I just wish to compliment those concerned with this Forum it is great, well done. Cheers, John

Welcome @crlmjohnson and @BuzzBetter. Glad to have you on the forum with us.


I'm not sure how I missed this thread in my time here but I'll go ahead and add my info here:

Name is Allen and I live with my lovely wife of 28 years in the gorgeous Great Smoky Mountains (live in Clyde, NC)
  • sUAS operator 45 years (blows my mind LOL) flying everything from Free-Flight, to gliders, R/C Jets, Seaplanes, Helicopters and of course now MultiRotors (aka Drones)
  • Manned Aircraft Part 61 Pilot 21 years (SEL)
  • Owner/Operator of A Shot Above of WNC, LLC out of Waynesville, NC. We are a full service Aerial Data Acquisition company working in Residential, Commercial, and Emergency Services industries. We fly for Emergency Services on the local and stage (NC) level both operationally and training.
  • Member of Wings of Mercy and DSAR - Both sUAS SAR related groups
  • FAA Part 61, Part 107, NC DOT Commercial Drone License, and various FEMA/NIMS certifications for Emergency Services.

We have a "few" sUAS we use for both pleasure and work. Most are DJI but we have others for special operations/needs.

I'm an IT guy by day and work in the Residential Building Supply industry.

Let me close by saying, LIFE IS GOOD!!

Hey All,
I’m Tony. I’ve been flying drones a couple of years now. I’ve been a licensed pilot since the late 90’s. I recently decided to try and turn my passion into profit. I’m looking forward to using you guys knowledge and input in helping me further my endeavor. I would rate myself a a fairly skilled pilot but I have quite a bit to learn when it comes to photography.
Blue Skies,
Tony

Hello BigAI07, thank you for the welcome! I am currently located in and fly in the Florida Panhandle. I travel to Southern California and Hawaii quite often so I try to fly in those places as much as I can.
