Answering Your ADS-B Questions – Remote Pilot 101


hey remote pilot 101 Jason here and I
want to clarify something in regards to a DSP it’s something I could have
personally said better last week and a lot of us could have said better in
regards to DJ eyes new air since we talked time and time again about the ad
SB 20/20 mandate well that is for manned aircraft
you see DJI air sense is technology called a DSP in which allows you to
receive a signal from all aircraft as they’re flying around with the exception
of gliders ultra lights these sort of things older aircraft like I have a
1940’s j-3 cub with no electrical system there’s a lot of aircraft that will
still be exempt from this but most modern aircraft by the beginning of 2020
will be required to have what’s called a DSP out so receivers like a DSP in like
the latest products from DJI with air scents will be able to receive that
signal now I don’t quite know how air sense is going to look just yet but I
can tell you on our iPad screens for aircraft that I already have a DSP in
and out I can see their tail number I can see their altitude their speed their
direction that they’re heading where they’re gonna be in a certain distance
I would imagine you’d get similar data now the FAA has recently said their
symposium as well that you know ATS be out for drones as a part of this remote
ID something they’re working on is is not going to be a thing it’s gonna cause
too much just confusion it’s mean too much data out not only to bog down the
system but bog down the pilots not only the man pilots but the drone pilots as
well so for now remote pilots DJI air sends is nothing to worry about
it’s nothing you actually have to retrofit your drone for this is simply
just a safety addition to DJ eyes latest products now I’m sure some savvy
entrepreneur down the road is gonna come up with a retrofit or maybe DJI will who
knows and it will be a great safety addition to add to
your workflow and add to your remote and your drum as well here but for now
nothing to worry with DJI air since it’s on their newer products and it’s a DSP
in I’m sure there’s a ton of questions so myself and this great team here at
remote pilot we watch into comments all throughout this week on
YouTube on Facebook to get you a great response remote pilot 101 is the most
successful part 107 test prep course on the market with over 18,000 tests pass

    Hello Jason, this video covered many questions people do not understand or have misunderstood, hopefully now they will! Thank you for this clarification video, nicely done!

    Thanks Jason, BTY, I past my Part-107 last month and to date have recommended Remote Pilot to four other folks…

    My Mavic 2 ED has AirSense but when it shows a commercial airliner, all I get is the partial tail number (which is fine for security purposes) and a distance. I see the icon as it moves obviously but I don’t get an altitude or heading or anything else, just distance. As for a refit to existing non-Enterprise models, why not just get a handheld device? I thought you could get one of those for about $500. Then you would really only need one ADS-B receiver for ALL of your drones.

    Hey Jason. I obtained my 107 through your program and now recommend it to all my Public Safety colleagues. At this time Airsense by DJI is a joke. I get a warning for every aircraft in my vicinity of my Matrice 210. I could be at 200 AGL and receiving alerts from aircraft at 5,000 AGL and more than 10SM away. It is a major annoyance. Since I operate with the Northern end of DFW, Alliance, and Addison Municipal as well as the entire Denton Enterprise Airports in my County I see the benefit, but not at it's current configuration. It is a constant nagging that takes over the majority of the Crystal Sky screen on every plane in the airspace.

    The Mavic-2-Enterprise already has it. I can record some screenshots & send to you tomorrow if you want too see what it looks like.

    Thanks Jason.
    It would be nice if we could have the ADS information on a separate monitor as opposed to the primary monitor. The primary is already crowded with information. Depending on when the ADS received begins to report on the received signal, there could be a lot of noise that is effectively not applicable to the RPIC. e.g. the manned aircraft is 250 miles out, and the ADS recognizes that and reports it to the UAS RPIC. I realize aircraft travel quickly, but that may be excessive.

    Will this be just added to the app or will it only be on new DJI products? I have a mavic pro, will this be on my screen?

    Is there going to be an Android or iPhone app? I'm a rec flyer and I would be nice to at least be able to monitor the traffic overhead.
