  1. West Maui Mountains

    Pssht, this isn't fair. WHAT AN AMAZING SHOT. Mahalo for sharing with us
  2. Yes, you can apply for Airspace Authorization before you get your temporary license. More information on how to apply for airspace authorization over here. And yes, as soon as you get the email from the FAA with your temporary, you're good to start flying. Your hard card will come in the mail in 6-8 weeks.
  3. Post Production

    Hi Carlos, lots of good threads on this already. I should merge all these at some point More information here:
  4. Video Editing Software

    Haha, touche
  5. Employment Opportunities

    Thanks for posting here, Jake.
  6. Remote Pilot on Resume

    I would stick to jargon that someone outside of the industry can instantly understand. So using "Part 107" doesn't mean anything to someone looking to hire a drone pilot. But saying "FAA-certified" or even just "certified / insured" is a good idea to demonstrate professionalism. Hope that helps!
  7. Video Editing Software

    Great advice, @Av8Chuck.
  8. Zephyr Drone Simulator - Cyber Monday Deal

    Hopefully XPONENTIAL in Denver
  9. Log Books

    Ooh, lots of options. Flight ops management companies like the ones over here: https://www.dronepilotgroundschool.com/flight-operations-management/ There's also these two on Amazon: UAS Pilot Log Drone Operator's Logbook I know a lot of pilots who use Google Sheets or Excel as well.
  10. Hi from Nepal

    Nice to meet you, @prabeen! I lived in Kathmandu for 4 months back in 2006. What's the drone scene like in Nepal right now? What are the regulations like? Do you know Uttam Puadasaini? We interviewed him earlier this year: https://uavcoach.com/interview-nepal-flying-labs/
  11. Sectional chart Visibility Help

    Ooh, I know this one It's a trick question. You can't find visibility requirements on a sectional chart. The minimum visibility for any sUAS operations is always 3 SM, no matter where you are flying. It's a regulations question, not a sectional chart question. The chart is a red herring meant to throw you off. One of the many ways the FAA tries to trick test-takers! (cc: @robolizard222)
  12. Hi From Atlanta

  14. Zephyr Drone Simulator - Cyber Monday Deal

    Hope the sale went well, was good to run into you at InterDrone!
  15. Not a helpful response at all, @Av8Chuck. Funny I suppose, but not helpful. @Marty L, unclear from your post what you're worried about but will do my best to assist. Many different ways to sell your drone: Our "For Sale" section on this forum: http://community.uavcoach.com/forum/44-for-sale/ Craigslist, where I'd only take cash. You'll likely want to power up the P3 to show it works during the transaction. With Craigslist transactions, the buyer understands the risk and purchases "as is." If you show the system is working and he/she inspects it, then that's all you can really do. Not much more to worry about. I've sold many electronic (and other high-priced) items on Craigslist and have ever run into issues. Facebook Marketplace Hope that helps!
  16. Contract terms

    Yah, check out the contracts that Drone Law Pro offers over here. Their PDFs are really easy to modify on a per-client basis. You only have to pay for the template once.

  18. DJI M600 Complete Package - Price Reduced

    Hi all, this kit has been sold. Thanks!
  19. Maui Lifestyle Video

    I love the editing at 0:16-0:17. I've found this is a really easy effect to add into pano shots like this, or really any shot that's kind of long where the beginning is important, and the end is important, but the middle can be sped up through to match music, or just to offer a cool visual.
  20. best first contract?

    Check out Drone Law Pro, they have some great contracts.
  21. Selling Tips

    Wanted to post this resource from the RTV crew here as well: https://uavcoach.com/real-estate-marketing/
