Our Drones

TATTS has been using a fleet of drones over the years as well as a base station, FPV equipment and a variety of other supplemental tools to support our missions.  Over  the years, the drones themselves have been used quite heavily and are in dire need of replacement.  We make due though but can always use support to improve our fleet!
  1. 4 microdrones (no GPS but cameras) for inside flying/practice
  2. 1 DJI Phantom 2 with radio controller
  3. GoPro Hero3 Black Edition camera on the DJI Phantom 
  4. GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition (with after market 5.6mm non-distortion lens)
  5. Spektrum DX5e and DX8 radios (one for the adult and one for the child)
  6. 21" LCD TV for viewing video in real time
  7. FatShark Base goggles (adjustable eye pieces to fit the different kids and adults)
  8. ImmersionRC 5.8 GHz 600mw video transmitter and receiver
  9. Numerous LiPO batteries 
  10. Phoenix flight simulator (included the Spektrum DX5e radio and software to run on a laptop)Hitec X1 ACPlus battery charger
  11. Quadframes 200mm landing gear
  12. Quadframes camera gimbal
  13. Skew planar antennas for the video transmitter and receiver
  14. Power converter to run the TV off of a car battery
  15. AV amplifier to boost and split the receiver's video signal to both the goggles and TV
  16. Assorted cables such as a cable to connect the two radios when team flying and RCA cables to connect the video receiver to the TV
  17. Soldering kit and flux
  18. Pix4D - for generating 3D point clouds and orthos from our aerial imagery
Previously, we built or used some other equipment.
  1. 2 DJI Flamewheel F550's (build it yourself kits) with radio controllers
  2. 3 DJI Phantom 2s (no longer working due to bumps and bruises)
