Stories of Commercial Drones in Action

As always, at sUAS News we are keen to see stories of commercial drone tasks being successfully completed by operators around the world. If you are a UAS operator and have a story to tell about an interesting commercial task you have performed with your drone, write up a detailed “debrief” and send it to us, remember to include lots of hi-res photos of the task and of your drone in action. We then pick the most interesting stories to go into sUAS Guide. The last day that we will consider story submissions for sUAS Guide Issue 2 specifically is this coming Friday, 24 June. You can send your story and photos to the same e-mail as the above photo submissions.

CIO, sUAS News | "My interest in UAS began in 2006 in the Masai Mara, Kenya where I was working as a bush pilot and met Gary Mortimer. I have always loved computers, maps, aerial photos and any kind of flying thing so the UAS addiction quickly took hold. Since then my interest in these technologies has grown from just an interest to building and flying small UAS as well as getting involved with sUAS News."
