Drone Updates

I’ve continued practicing flying and using the drone to get real estate property images and I am really hoping for one specific update from the manufacturer:  wider exposure values when taking HDR images.  Currently they’ll let you choose 3 images (normal exposure and up to +/-0.7 over and under exposure) but what is really needed are up to 5 images with +/- one stop exposure between each to capture the full dynamic range of the scene.  But I think I can make do, with a lot of editing in Photoshop, with what they currently provide.  

Another item of note:  I’m still waiting, nearly 3 months now, for approval to fly inside along the northern boundary of the Tyndall AFB Class D airspace over the land.  I don’t know why it’s taking them so long to approve this or why they even haven’t let me know if there’s an issue or not.  Or when they might get to it.  These kind of delays are totally unrealistic and untenable for those of us who are wanting to provide a service with our drones.  I’m almost at my wit’s end trying to figure out what to do next.  Hopefully something will happen soon though I’m sure it will be “fill it out again with more information” and another 3-month waiting period.  Ugh…
