Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Someone in work showed me this article,  which shows video of the what is believed to be the first recorded instance of a life being saved by a ';Drone'; in a search and rescue situation.

What a brilliant use for multis and hope that this will be used more for positive applicatuons like this, especially if battery technology allows much longer flight times.

Good news.
  Lot of moronic comments on that  page though...as is  usual from the uninformed  :rofl:
Let's be careful out there.
SAFETY is.. NO accident.

If this new development materialises the use of these machines for this type of thing (plus other not so appealing things) will become a lot more viable, also think about the knock on effect it could have on our chosen hobby!

Guess what you need is a heavy lift, with decent flight time, a gimbal that can cary a daylight and FLIR cameras &  ground station with the ability to see from both cameras.

Who fancies starting up UAV search and rescue?

the NZ fire service has purchased 3 multi rotors fitted out with thermal imaging cameras from the US at a price of $13000 each for search n rescue as well as looking for hotspots

After the big earthquake a couple of years ago in christchurch a few personal quads were used to look for bodies and  search  larger building using FPV even a few AR drones were used as well
