Mr. Leonard M. dela Mance


Senior Video Journalist / Certified Drone Operator
Objectives:
• To be able to demonstrate, execute and to
render proper trainings of basic drone
operations and safety handlings.

white board pen. etc.
Introduction:
What is a D.R.O.N.E.?
• D - Dynamic
• R - Remotely
• O - Operated
• N - Navigation
• E - Equipment
• An unmanned aerial vehicle ( UAV ),
known as a drone, is an aircraft without a
human pilot .

• Its flight is either controlled


autonomously by computers or under the
remote control of a pilot on the ground
History of DRONE
The Austrian balloons
The earliest recorded use of an unmanned aerial vehicle for warfighting occurred
on August 22, 1849, when the Austrians attacked the Italian city of Venice with
unmanned balloons loaded with explosives. At least some of the balloons were
launched from the Austrian ship Vulcano. Although some of the balloons worked
and successfully managed to bomb The Republic, others were caught in a change
of wind and blown back over Austrian lines. The Austrians had been developing
this system for months.
Kinds of drones

Fixed-wings :

Multi-rotor :
Fixed-wings :
• A fixed-wing aircraft is an aircraft, such as an
aeroplane, which is capable of flight using wings
that generate lift caused by the vehicle's forward
airspeed and the shape of the wings. Fixed-wing
aircraft are distinct from rotary-wing aircraft, in
which the wings form a rotor mounted on a
spinning shaft, and ornithopters, in which the
wings flap in similar manner to a bird.
Multi-rotor :
• is a multi-rotor helicopter that is lifted
and propelled by four rotors or more and
classified as rotorcraft, as opposed to
fixed-wing aircraft, because their lift is
generated by a set of rotors (vertically
oriented propellers).
• Is a device with an intense mixture of
Electronics, Mechanical and mainly on
the principle of aviation.

What is a GPS

Global Positioning System


Global Positioning
System
“ GPS is a network of orbiting satellites that
send precise details of their position in space
back to earth. The signals are obtained by GPS
receivers, such as navigation devices and are
used to calculate the exact position, speed and
time at the vehicles location”.
Solar Flare
A brief eruption of intense high-energy
radiation from the sun’s surface, associated
with sunspots and causing electromagnetic
disturbances on the earth, as with radio
frequency communications and power line
transmission.
Power cables / satellite
disc
Check the signal first and observe carefully
if stable or not. If not then ( No fly ) if
stable, fly with caution. Always check and
monitor the status of GPS signal and
Lightbridge signal when flying.
