SBMS monthly Meeting Announcements:
The following text and attached photo are for the SBMS February 2016 meeting.
Photographic drone helicopters are exploding in popularity. One manufacturer sold about
a million "quad copters" in the U.S. alone in 2015. What does this have to do with microwaves?
They use the 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi band to send high resolution video from the copter to the remote
control and a smart phone or tablet. The RC-to-aircraft control link is at 5.7 GHz.
The technology is amazing for a consumer-priced product. In addition to two microwave radio
transceivers, there is a full array of flight sensors plus GPS and a very sophisticated on-board
flight control computer. The camera is highly stable with a three-axis gimbal mount. When
you take off, the aircraft remembers exactly where it was—and returns there either on
command or if the RC link should be lost.
Wayne, N6NB owns two DJI Phantom 3 quad copters. He’s learned you need to know
something about microwave propagation to fly one these gadgets at any significant distance.
Wayne will do a demo and presentation at the upcoming SBMS Meeting on Thursday 04 February.
