We actually have a really cool(er) show today as we welcome to the mic Justin Woodcock from IR Distro (http://www.irdistro.com/). You may recall that recently on episode ADU 0071 we talked about the Nepal earthquake and the use of drones for search and rescue. We also mentioned that Justin was part of a team going out there to take part in these efforts. So we’re very excited to have Justin back and we wanted to interview him to hear all about the efforts and how drones we’re actually utilized. Let us assure you of this, you will find this to be a very interesting and maybe even fascinating show as you hear all about the efforts and role of drones in Nepal in mapping/search/rescue/recovery. We also, by the way, talk a lot of technical details about the Phantom and drones in general for these type purposes. So stay tuned and let us know what you think.
If you’re interested in giving your time to help with these type efforts, and you are a good pilot, then go to http://www.halodrop.com/ and fill out the requested info there.

Today we’re going to, once again, step away from the norm and not answer anybody’s specific question. Instead, we’re going to talk about how drones can be used for good, especially in light of the events taking place in Nepal right now.
We have some good friends (and partners) in IR Distro who are on their way to Nepal right now to use their drones and IR cameras to help in the search and rescue efforts. As a result, we felt it applicable and maybe even a bit necessary to step back and talk about how drones are and can be used for the greater good.
We also give a quick run down of an organization called SWARM (http://sardrones.org/) where you can volunteer for search and rescue efforts with the help of your drone and flying skills.
You can ask and submit your question at http://AskDroneU.com and we’ll be sure to answer it on an upcoming episode. It couldn’t be easier to do, so go check it out now.
