As the drone market is still gaining popularity, so no wonder there also has been a tremendous spike in drone website, blogs and also drone-related articles& newsletter. But among all these websites, which are the best that you should follow in 2019? Let’s check them out!
  
  
These website or articles may help you decide which drones to buy, what should you do after your drone’s broken, or massive amounts of drone news.
  
  
Top 5 Drone Forums in 2019
  
  
1.       UAV COACH
  
  
Its founder, Alan Pearlman is the instructor for drone pilot ground school and holds an FAA remote pilot certificate. So the website is not only famous for its informative and in depth articles, but also for its online preparatory courses for drone operations. It’s quite a cool website for beginners and also experienced pilots. There is also a community section which has a thriving forum of friendly members where you can ask for advice.
  
  
  
2.       DronePilots Network
  
  
DronePilots is probably the largest family of forums for online drone enthusiasts. Now they have over 850,000 unique users each month and over 4 million PVs. They’ve got like 11 independent forums for different products, such as MavicPilots, GoProPilots. No matter what drones you have, you can find the latest news and information about it. And the moderators are very responsive, they spend quite large amount of time and effort to keep the spammers out. So you don’t really have to worry much about being annoyed by the ads or meaningless content.
  
  
3.       Reddit Drones
  
Everybody knows that Reddit gathers all kinds of creepy, funny or valued information, and it has huge traffic. Most drone enthusiasts on Reddit are very likely to share their photography, videos, news about multicopters, rotorcraft, gliders, copters, multirotor aircraft and any form of unpersoned remote-control or robotic drone. You can get a lot of information there. So, it has an interesting mix of jaw-droppin landscape videos and photos, interwined with drone-related article and news.
  
  
4.       RCG Groups
  
RCG Groups is probably the most active Radio Control model community in the world. They host discussion about every kind of drone you can ever imagine. The community is super active and now has a tremendous amount of daily discussions.
  
  
Now this community got like millions of PVs, so probably every questions you ask, there’s already a thread about it.
  
  
5.      DJI Forum
  
As a huge fan of DJI, DJI forum will definitely come into the list. You can find all kinds of tutorial compilations on it. I have to say, DJI make really great and high quality video tutorials. So if you are also using a dji drone, then you really can’t miss their official forum. The admins in dji forum are all dji staff, so if you have any questions or need to contact their after sales team, they’ll get back to you and provide you with a good and safe solution.
  
  
Top 5 websites to Buy Quality Drones
  
  
1.       Amazon
  
Amazon has its wonderful return policy and the trustworthiness of their brand. You don’t have to worry whether you can get a full refund if you are not very satisfied with the product.
  
  
2.      Best Buy
  
Best Buy is one of the major consumer electronics retailers. Except Dji products, they had a good amount of Autel Robotics, Parrot and UDI drones in house. You can really have a vast selection of drones, not that much as Amazon, but it’ll have what you want in most of the case.
  
  
3.     B&H Photo
  
B&H Photo is an online retailer that mainly selles camera equipment. But a good drone is just a camera with wings, so B&H also sells drones. If you are looking for a wealth of choices, they are a great place to visit.
  
  
4.     Altair Aerial
  
Altair Aerial mainly sells a variety of beginner and intermediate level recreational drones. Also, they provide amazing quality and customer service. You can find their drones on amazon or at Altairaerial.com   
  
  
5.    Banggood
  
  
Banggood is an Amazon-esque online retailer. They offer a wide variety of drones, and you can check their reviews, as their customer often provide detailed and informative tips. But the difference between Banggood and Amazon is that Banggood tend to offer affordable drones that Amazone doesn’t. So if you can’t find the drones you are looking for on Amazon, then try Bangood.

No, don’t make the mistake of thinking passenger drones to be a bigger version of those toys that kids fly at home. It’s much more than that and we will tell you why it has everything in it to become ‘the next big thing’ to hit the aerospace industry in the coming days.

Drones have been extremely popular in recent years, but their use was restricted initially to recreation activities by hobbyists.  But, slowly, the use of drones was extended to research activities and military operations as well. Commercial companies also started to explore the possibilities of their use in transporting merchandise. Post 2011, many commercial builders and developers have conducted experiments using short-duration manned drones to support the transportation of materials.  Then came the concept of passenger drones. Also called the Drone Taxi, Pilotless Helicopter or a Flying Taxi-a passenger drone is a kind of UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) that can carry passengers. A commercial passenger drone was exhibited for the first time by Chinese entrepreneurs in the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2016. Named Ehang 184, this passenger taxi was capable of carrying a human and it opened up the door of enormous possibilities for the future.

Present Pioneers in commercial passenger drones
Bell Nexus Air Taxi
This shiny passenger drone was showcased in the recently concluded CES 2019. This is a luxury project by Bell, one of the largest manufacturers of helicopters.

eHang 184
This machine is almost ready to hit the market and has been undergoing testing in Dubai for quite some time now. It is expected to roll out flying taxi service in Dubai at any time.
Boeing PAV
Boeing, a renowned name in the aerospace industry, has acquired Aurora Flight Sciences, who has done a considerable bit of research and testing in passenger drones. We heard they are becoming ready to go commercial this year itself.

Airbus Vahana
Airbus Vahana is testing single and two passenger drones, with the unmatched tools, materials and experience provided by the Airbus team. Inside information coming from Airbus suggests that their air-taxi service will carry passengers at the same price as that of a ground taxi in the USA.  

E-Volo
Volocopter, the German company has already obtained the license to fly a passenger drone. Its tail-less mini helicopter E-Volo or Intel Volocopter did its test flight in September 2017 itself. It has impressive safety feature of multiple propellers instead of the customary single propeller.  

PARAGON VTOL AEROSPACE (https://paragonvtol.com/)
They are reshaping the infrastructure for 45 million people that live in the Caribbean Islands using their sophisticated drones and software technologies. Their technology is designed to work under extreme conditions and lift heavy materials using electric power. Their T21 Raptor is designed for universal applications based on industry requirements. They have successfully operated our third small scale prototype and developing a full scale to clear a path for commercialization.


The road ahead
Passenger drone is based on a fairly new technology. A lot of grey areas need to be addressed before full-fledged use of passenger drones for civilian travel. Further improvements are still required in aerial drone control, traffic coordination and collision avoidance before the inevitable proliferation of ‘drone-taxis’ actually happens.  A lot of work is being done to address these areas. Drone developers are also working tirelessly to overcome challenges such as airspace regulations, possible legal tangles, non-availability of data on drone safety operations, short flight time, noise etc. Once these issues are addressed, passenger drones are bound to find excessive use in commercial travel (as air-taxis) and healthcare (as air ambulance). We believe, that day is coming sooner than later.
