  1. according to the OSI model as your project work?

  2. This means that as long as the drone has internet access (3G/4G signal) you can control it over the internet! Wow! Now we need to find a way to prolong the battery life significantly. This is why I am in love with drone technology :) It just keeps on evolving every day! Amazing! Great news for aerial photographers, the range now depends only on the battery capacity. And, for those who want to find out more about drone photography and the models used for this type of art, I suggest checking out this article: http://mydronelab.com/best-pick/aerial-photography-drone.html

  3. Awesome blog. I enjoyed reading your articles. This is truly a great read for me. I have bookmarked it and I am looking forward to reading new articles. Keep up the good work!
