In this weeks tip we will upload our SketchUp model into Sketchfab which allows you to view in VR. We will be using NOON VR googles to view. It will only get better! Being able to place yourself in the model, to walk and look through VR will give us a whole new experience viewing 3d models. Enjoy!

So, out of the box, registered then ready for the first flight. In this weeks tip we look out how easy and smooth the DJI Phantom 3 Advanced quad can fly in manual flight (next time we will use the DJI go app to get the bird in the air).
Overall it was easily controllable and smooth operating quad. I was very impressed with the camera images and video captured. The DJI Phantom 3 can be easily controlled to capture data you need on the job site like a big concrete pour, logistics planning, sequencing and manpower utilization.
It might be hard to justify lost production every day to meet with your entire crew for thirty minutes, but how much time is wasted if you don’t have a crew meeting? It will take them five minutes to think through what they were doing the day before, five minutes to think about what tools they need, another five minutes to talk to other workers to see whom they will be working with. Another fifteen minutes to walk to the area drop off tools walk to the office wait in line to ask the supervisor any information he needs for the day. As well as fifteen minutes to relay information to the other crewmembers, half of which will get lost in translation, so let's add ten minutes to refresh that information. Morning crew meetings, when done properly, will not only help the supervisor get organized, but help the crew plan their work where they can be efficient. Simple things like getting tools and equipment in one shot can save 15 minutes, and if everyone on the crew understands the directive and goals for the day, can help to eliminate delays, confusion and frustration that associated with poor planning. To have an effective morning meeting try the five "D's".
Morning crew meeting provide a perfect platform for a successful day when done properly. How you convey your message will decide how they perform! For example, if you use I in all your sentences then it will be YOU trying to get everyone to perform. If you use the word WE, then it becomes a TEAM pushing together to achieve the goals. Don't waste a prime opportunity to motivate, communicate and collaborate that a quick daily crew meeting offers.
