UAV Flight Mission Notes
Piloting an unmanned aerial vehicle over moving water has it’s own set of challenges. That coupled with a low count of GPS/GLONASS satellites and tight spaces due to vegetation makes flying at this location challenging to pilot an unmanned aerial vehicle.
Some of the aerial photos and aerial video was captured within 15 cm of the water. Care has to be taken to stay away from rapids, that are creating spray or mist, to keep your UAV dry and the camera lens cover clean.
Take care while crossing the larger of the two logs crossing over to the island. In dry conditions, crossing the log is relatively safe. Good footwear will help.
Fly safe and enjoy the beauty Kamloops has to offer!
- Watch for manned aircraft (no matter how unlikely)
- Be bear aware and watch for wildlife
- Slips, trips, falls – wet rocks, undergrowth, balancing while crossing log
- Bug spray
- Proper footwear with ankle support
