Drone BAN News in India| Drones In India

To Let Drones Fly In The Sky, Home Ministry Says Law Round The Corner

Till the time the government did not ban drones anyone could buy one and operate it. But once the act is enforced, officials say things would streamline.

All India | Written by Neeta Sharma | Updated: August 31, 2017 00:41 IST
NEW DELHI:  The Home Ministry is planning to bring in a draft policy next month that will regulate the usage of unmanned aerial vehicles or drones in the country instead of completely banning them.

“We are working on a draft drone act, which will focus on regulating the use of drones instead of banning. It should come out in public domain by September after which comments will be taken from stakeholders,” Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi said on Wednesday.

Currently, the use of drones is being regulated only through an executive order. Whenever someone is caught violating the law they are booked under the aircraft act.

“There is an entire act for planes which regulates their operation and as of now if someone is caught operating drones they are also booked under aircraft act,” said a senior official.

There are no radars to detect the presence of a drone or its path. So the government says it feels it does need some basics which need to be worked out, which will be addressed in this new act.

Till the time the government did not ban drones anyone could buy one and operate it. But once the act is enforced, officials say things would streamline.

“Essentially the act will spell out the mechanism to police a drone i.e., a procedure who all can buy for what purpose they can buy, which all areas they can fly a drone and lastly how much punishment will a person get who flies an unlicensed drone,” explained an officer who is dealing with drafting the act.

Earlier this month, the pilot of an Air Asia flight complained of getting distracted by drones while landing at Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi. Following the pilot’s report, operations at Delhi airport were shut for two hours.

According to rules, the airport security force have been told to treat drones as possible security threats, but there is no guideline as to how to react when a drone is spotted in the vicinity of an airport.

Every month, six to seven cases of pilots getting distracted by different objects while landing/taking off are reported from Delhi airport.

Civilian drones may account for bulk of 40,000 UAVs in Indian skies despite ban by regulator

MUMBAI: Only defence forces, law-enforcement agencies and a few select government companies are allowed to use drones, but that is not stopping civilian ‘droners’ from hitting the skies. Over the past two years, Indians have spent close to Rs 40 crore buying civil drones, as per estimates of the Consortium of Unmanned Vehicle Systems India (CUVSI). Civil drones, which also include toy drones, bear price tags in the range of Rs 2,000 and Rs 50,000; a rough calculation hints at the presence of 40, ..

————————————————————————————————-

Civilian drones, despite ban, flying in India; time to relook ‘blanket prohibition’

 

Despite a blanket ban on the use of commercial unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) in the country, civilian drones worth Rs 40 crore were bought by Indians in the last two years, reported Economictimes.com.

Representational image. AP

Although the rules prohibit the use of commercial drones, the daily reported that their sale is not banned per se.

Talking about the trend, Huzefa Tavawalla, who heads international commercial law practice at Nishith Desai Associates, says to Firstpost : “As per Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) rules any civilian use of drones in India is illegal, but people still use them by taking permission from local authorities, which is also according to me not legally acceptable.”

According to Tavawalla, the blanket ban on the use of commercial drones is reactionary and lacks a long-term vision of incorporating drones in achieving goals of socio-economic development.

Apart from defence and reconnaissance, drones have several commercial use. They could be used for the quick delivery of donated organs, enhancing agricultural efficiency by identifying factors such as moisture content and nutrient soil availability. Remote sensing through drones can be of significant use in disaster-prone areas for pinpointing and fighting fires or detection of theft and pilferage of goods meant for public utilisation, or in detection of LPG gas leaks which can save several lives.

Presently, people mostly use drones for aerial photography in weddings and for hobby flying. Drones are also used to take aerial shots in movie and documentary making. These drones typically include toy drones which cost between Rs 2,000 and Rs 50,000.

Drones have been used in India for some time, however, their use caught public attention when a pizzeria in Mumbai delivered a pizza by a UAV to much fanfare in May, 2014. The police, realising that there were no regulations on drones, banned their use.

This was followed by the DGCA issuing a public notice on 7 October, 2014, imposing a blanket ban on the use of civil drones in the interest of national security.

While the ban has been imposed due to ‘national security’, the DGCA acknowledged that drones have potential for a large number of civil applications.

“It’s perfectly fine to regulate advance drones as these can be misused by unscrupulous elements…But a blanket ban is unfair. Drones have enormous commercial possibilities,” says Pritam Sahu of Edall Systems, a Bengaluru based drone maker, to Economictimes.

Talking to Firstpost, Sahu says that there should be a guideline from the government in terms of the use of drones for civilian purpose.

“Currently people are importing drones illegally from abroad and using them. What I think is the use of the UAVs can be regulated here,” Sahu says.

Drones are quickly becoming cost effective and more capable and have been widely adopted by the law enforcement agencies in India. Currently, India accounts for the highest percentage of the world’s UAV imports (for defence purposes) at 22.5 percent. The government of India has recently entered into an arrangement to purchase armed drones from Israel and the US.

“With India’s innovation flight taking off with the launch of key initiatives such ‘Make in India’, ‘Digital India’ and a strong focus on IT start-ups, the government must use this opportunity to make India the global manufacturing leader for drones,” Tavawalla said.

A Whole New Way To Experience The Spark

 

Spark is an easy-to-use, fun-to-fly mini camera drone that lifts off from the palm of your hand to capture and share those special moments on the go. Spark is the first consumer drone that users can control by hand gestures alone, whether it’s sending it up and away, taking a selfie or shooting a video, or calling it back.

    

With the newly added Paper Plane flight mode, users now have more ways to enjoy the Spark. This new mode allows users to launch the drone in a forward motion, just like flying a paper plane. The camera will automatically begin recording a Dronie video using user-defined distance with a fixed angle and speed. When filming is complete, the DJI Spark will automatically return to the pilot and the footage can be quickly and easily edited and shared.

    

In addition, a new Sphere mode will be added to the Panorama photo feature, enabling users to produce a panoramic photo with a fisheye lense effect. Both features will be included soon in the forthcoming DJI Go 4 mobile app and Spark firmware updates.

The New And Improved Mavic Pro Platinum

MAVIC PRO PLATINUM

From USD $1,099

August 31, 2017 – DJI, the world’s leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, today introduced two new drones, the Mavic Pro Platinum and Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian and will also demonstrate the Spark with newly added features at IFA 2017 in Berlin.

“DJI continuously look for ways to improve its products and introduce new features, many of which are the result of the positive feedback and requests we received from customers around the world,” said Paul Pan, DJI Senior Product Manager. “Starting with our Osmo Mobile Silver handheld stabilizer, DJI has been expanding its product variations to meet the different lifestyles and needs of consumers. Similarly, we’ve done the same with two of the most iconic DJI drone products, the Mavic Pro and Phantom 4 Pro. The newly added features of the Spark will also introduce new ways for people to experience flight and the fun of aerial photography.”

The DJI Mavic Pro Platinum takes all of the advanced features of the Mavic Pro which revolutionised personal flight and builds on them.  It is ideal for travellers, amateur photographers and outdoor sports enthusiasts

    

With an 11 percent gain in flight time taking it up 30 minutes coupled with a 60% noise power reduction[1], the Mavic Pro Platinum provides the best portable drone experience yet.  Additionally, the drone’s compact and powerful body has also been created with an attractive platinum coloured shell.

    

The increased flight time and quieter operation has been achieved by integrating new electronic speed controllers (ESC’s) and freshly designed propellers which are also compatible with the current Mavic Pro.

    

Furthermore, pilots of the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum benefit from a portable, powerful and easy-to-use camera drone that features a 4K stabilised camera, 4.3 mile (7km)[2] range, innovative FlightAutonomy technology to sense obstacles up to 49ft (15m) away and a range of intelligent flight modes that make it extremely fun and easy to fly.



The Mavic Pro Platinum features a sleek design and compact body that is both powerful and alluring. A new and improved 30-minute flight time coupled with 60% noise reduction makes the Mavic Pro Platinum DJI’s best portable drone yet.

 

 

 

 

 

Conclusion: Paying $100 you get around 4 mins extra and some sound reduction…. Although with that $100 you can get a new battery and fly for more 25mins and have no issues if you dnt mind the sound that the drone makes…

As per my experience with DJI drones its very silent compared to inspire and p4pro so it atleast doesnt matters for me so i have a mavic pro those who always wanted a silent drone can go for the pro version also more drones are going to be launched check out DJI NEWS.

2gm sbus/ppm reciever

radiolink

Radiolink R12DSM, 2.4G 12 Channels DSSS &FHSS Receiver

 

R12DSM

 

Radiolink R12DSM, 2.4G 12 channels receiver, DSSS and FHSS hybrid dual spread spectrum, 2.5 gram weight, SBUS and PPM signal support, use for Radiolink transmitters AT9, AT9S,AT10 and AT10II, is the best choice for racing drone.

 

 

Two signal working mode:

Blue/purple LED, SBUS signal , 12 channels totally.

Red LED always, PPM signal, 12 channels totally.

SBUS and PPM signal change:

Short press the ID SET switch two times within 1 second, the signal is changed from SBUS to PPM. The red LED indicates the PPM and blue/purple indicates SBUS.

 How to match code with transmitter:

1. Place the transmitter and the receiver close to each other within 1 meters.

2. Turn on the transmitter, then power on the R12DSM.

3. There is a black button on the R12DSM, press the binding button twice in two seconds and release, receiver light start blinking, after about 8 times blinking, match code success when receiver signal LED always on!

 Receiver’s Antenna Installation:

 

To obtain the best results of the diversity function, please refer to the following instructions:

1.The two antennas must be kept as straight as possible. Otherwise it will reduce the effective range.

2.The two antennas should be placed at 90 degrees to each other.

This is not a critical figure, but the most important thing is to keep the antennas away from each other as much as possible.

Larger models can have large metal objects that can attenuate the RF signal. In this case the antennas should be placed at both sides of the model. Then the best RF signal condition is obtained at any flying attitude.

3.The antennas must be kept away from conductive materials, such as metal, carbon and fuel tank by at least a half inch. The coaxial part of the antennas does not need to follow these guidelines, but do not bend it in a tight radius.

4.Keep the antennas away from the motor, ESC, and other noise source as much as possible.

*The two antennas should be placed at 90 degrees to each other.

*The Illustration demonstrates how the antenna should be placed.

*Receiver Vibration and Waterproofing: The receiver contains precision electronic parts. Be sure to avoid vibration, shock, and temperature extremes.

For protection, wrap the receiver in foam rubber or other vibration-absorbing materials.

It is also a good idea to waterproof the receiver by placing it in a plastic bag and securing the open end of the bag with a rubber band before wrapping it with foam rubber. If you accidentally get moisture or fuel inside the receiver, you may experience intermittent operation or a crash. If in doubt, return the receiver to our service center for service.

Technical Parameters

1) Channels: 12 channels

 

2) Working voltage: 4.8-6V

 

3) Working current: 40-180mA(input voltage: 5V)

High voltage Endurance motors for cheap

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 2.56.48 AM

High voltage Endurance motors for cheap is correct they are cheap like 20$ or so some of the motors are obviously branded so are been rated high am going to list down 3 motors i found to be better in efficiency and are good for endurance long flights.

Visit here for long time endurance flight quadcopter build : LINK

Motors :

SunnySky V3508 380kv

Racerstar Racing Edition 3508 BR3508 380KV 3-8S Brushless Motor For 600 700 800 RC Multirotors

Multistar Elite 3508-268KV High Voltage Endurance Motor

You can click on the motor names and check the specs although you can also scroll down i have copied them for you.

Now coming to individual price which is very important.

SUNNYSKY is a brand and they make awesome motors but they have a lot of oem and fake manufacturer in the market so buying from china from sites like aliexpress or ebay can land you with fake knockoffs beware. You can directly buy from sunnysky talk to them. Price for sunnysky is about $37.9 on Getfpv which is i feel costlier than the other 2 motors.

RACERSTAR is the best motor i felt among all the 3 due to the price and the datasheet i would say datasheet of all 3 motors is almost the same with some 0.xx amps here and there but it doesnt really matter as that can be counteracted with many other factors and tricks. Price of this motor is just $15 with free shipping on Banggood which is nice and best in the budget it runs on 3s to8s which is again a good thing.

Now the final motor which is the Multistar elite 3508 268kv now this is the motor which can be optimised and is a bit pricer than Racerstar Hobbyking has given us various specs and types of configuration for the same so that we can arrange the configuration between hexcopter and quadcopter and 6s and 8s battery according to our needs. This motor costs a normal customer $34 and for new or diamond customer about $24 which is $10 difference.

 

Best motor to buy if you are on budget and want to try a brand out go for Racerstar v3508 380kv only for $15 .

Now that is just Rs.1000 for each motor which i feel is nice also the weight consideration of this motors comes out to be cool.

How to make long endurance flying quadcopter/drone

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 2.58.53 AM

As you see the title Best long endurance flying quadcopter, Here in this post i am going to list down a way to get about 70-80 mins of flight time from a quad setup and yes it is possible many of them have done it ..

Budget $450-$500.

Video at the bottom

Well i have made separate posts for individual motors, frame types ,etc.

For getting the best endurance out of a quad first we need to look at the weight to thrust ratio.

We will focus on the making the lightest frame possible.. best way is to buy some carbon fibre min. 10mm or bigger in outer diameter or you can use aluminum booms or wood as per the weight you decide.

Motors

Coming to the motors there are couple efficient motors out in the market specifically designed to give you more flight time longer than the usual quads that we make .. propeller size that we are considering here is the 15inch to 17inch bar. Visit here for motors : MOTORS

you can check the individual motor specs and choose the prop you want even though the best motor i feel among the 3 i found is Racerstar as it is cheaper than all others.

Battery

Also if you are concerned to get about a long flight of 40min and above i would suggest to go for a customised lion battery which would reduce weight and might be you can even add your payload as necessary.

While considering the batteries see to it that you choose wisely according to your purpose as LIPO takes less time to charge than a big LIon battery pack also the charger wires and connectors and stuff.

Frame

I would use a 16mm outerdiameter carbonfibre rod which is easily available in stores and on aliexpress even you can go for different motor mounts available for tarot frames.

Whatever you use see to it you keep the frame light.

Flight controller

In endurance long flight setups you always see to it that you keep less stuff onboard as possible less wires and that calls for a fc like DJI  NAZA  you can buy one from here  well it not only is less weighted with less wires but also it is very good in flight stability and provides you that stability you need to fly this copter for an hour or so …. 10min of flight is also tiring sometimes.

Note:

Will update this post soon as i get time to write and find out more intresting parts to share keep connected pls. share the blog as much as possible.

 

Update :

Have tried various combinations and wanted a frame and total AUW to be 3kg and less.

Designed and printed 3-4 designs for frame and motor mount not sure which one to use one of them is just 7gms and seems to work fine lets see…

will update with images and file links soon.
