MD4-200 Experience Queries Response

Introduction Since our commercial decision to drop the use of the microdrones MD4-200 from the development of our Remote Aerial Imagery support service, we have had a steady stream of queries about our experiences and findings. This interest may be because the UK Distributor continues to have a link to our website. We have put… Read more »

April Update – Remote Imagery Survey Service Development

We have been researching and trailing UAS equipments to deliver aerial survey support. When we originally started research there were very limited commercially available VTOL SUAS. We started this challenge back in March 09 with a microdrones GmbH MD4-200 delivered and supported through their sole UK distributor MW Power Ltd. After 7 months of service… Read more »

CONFUSED IN WORDPRESS!

Dear Readers, This not the usual blog entry we intended to publish but it is very relevant to our continued experience as UAV operators, dealing with the UK microdrone distributor Microdrone (UK) Ltd.I started to pen a reply to Alistair Fox’s (Microdrone (UK) Ltd) comment when I realised he had brought comments from a different… Read more »

BAD PENNIES

Well well well……. you can never tell what time will eventually unearth. What a couple of days we have witnessed here at A J S Support Limited.   The first interesting event was an e mail from microdrones GmbH, telling us that our Twitter account is causing their customers confusion and we should stop using… Read more »

NEW MD COCKPIT VERSION

We have been experiencing random closure of the md cockpit application for our MD4-200 drone. Because of this we had been keeping an eye on the microdrones GmbH website and updated our mdCockpit application with the latest version (website current – mdCockpit V2.4.4.6) to see if this would help with a number of issues with the system.   We… Read more »

DHP FIRMWARE UPGRADE

  Today for a fee, our MD4-200 microdrone has had a firmware upgrade to the latest version. This includes the Dynamic Position Hold functionality. We at AJS are looking forward to carrying out our own airtests this weekend. It is hope that this will improve control in windy conditions. It is however a pity that we will be… Read more »

DYNAMIC POSITION HOLD UPGRADE

Previously, the MD4-200 pilot would have to compensate for wind influence when manually directing the drone away from GPS Hold function. Once an operator had input a manual control movement, the GPS Hold function would disengage completely.  We are looking forward to the microdrone GmbH Dynamic Position Hold (DPH) upgrade to the AJS Remote Imagery Support service microdrone . Its… Read more »

SUCCESSFUL SHORT FLIGHT

Today I took to the skies around Westbury in order to rebuild my confidence with the operation of our microdrone. It has been many weeks since I last flew it. We have been suffering with erratic battery performance then we could not fly at all while the batteries were recalled by the supplier. I am guessing that the new… Read more »

RETURN OF THE BATTERIES

Our batteries have returned after 3 weeks of travelling from Wiltshire to the Midlands then on to Germany. MW Power Systems Ltd had tested the batteries prior to sending them to microdrones GmbH and agreed that they were not performing consistently. microdrones GmbH have now returned the original batteries without a final explanation from either. So I… Read more »

BATTERY SAGA CONTINUES

Unfortunately, instead of demonstrating progress of a developing support service whilst logging interesting places and experiences flying our drone, I can only log that we still do not have batteries and therefore cannot fly. A fresh batch of tumble weed is blowing around the microdrone equipment in our store. The UK distributor for the microdrone… Read more »
