  1. Hello, brand new to the industry. Just passed my 107 and was preparing to purchase a p4p and start my own business utilizing the abilities of the p4p, and drone deploy, on the cheap just like everybody else. I don't have a day job and my experience in construction and facilities maintenance has been hands on labor type. Lost a fair amount of use in my right arm for good so no more hammers or drills or heavy lifting etc. So since passing my test I've been reading non-stop and can't seem to find anyone who knows their stuff that thinks it's a good idea. Surely someone is paying the bills with a p4p out there, right? I'm learning about the limitations of the products, I won't produce survey grade anything, won't be legal, will be for informational purpose only. Agricultural applications seem possible depending on all the usual factors that pertain to demand, ROI, competition, quality of deliverable' s. I've worked on farms and know some farmers and plan to contact an agronomist or 2 and learn what data they require. I'm moderately familiar with what's growing when. So the smart people on this and my other forum say do one thing well, but without using all the device can do, photography, mapping, crop health, I feel as though I would be restricting my ability to generate income. Can't a person be good at all those things? Also, if I was going to do only one thing and become the expert, the p4p probably isn't the rig, right? So I'm reading all the horror stories of failed attempts and heeding the warnings of, well, every single one of you, but I still want to become a provider and be self employed. So if you're out there and have any stories of success I'd love to hear them. Also I would love to hear more horror stories about failure and misery and why under no circumstances should I do this. As depressing as they are, they're extremely helpful in my decision making process. Thank you all very much, this site is great.

  4. Introducing Myself

    Hi, I am Pete and just an old guy who got a mini HRV drone for Christmas from our youngest kid. Been having fun learning to fly it in the house as it is cold and snowy outside. I did take it outside yesterday and lost it for about 4 hours. I am finally getting better control now. In fact I enjoy flying it so much I have ordered a larger "fancier" one, a Syma X5c along with extra parts and batteries. Also ordered extra blades for my HRV as I put my last spare on today. I used to do a LOT of helicopter flying when I worked for Weyerhaeuser Company in the '60's, '70's '80's and '90's. I also have been flying fixed wing fire detection for the Forest Service for 24 years. I am not a pilot, but always a wanabe pilot, drones are more in my price range.
  5. Greetings from beautiful Beaverton, Oregon... a suburb of Portland. I saw the news about Part 107 and thought, this is the big game-changer I've been waiting for (gulp). Desktop publishing? Building PC's? Selling sub-prime mortgages? I'm an IT guy and have seen a few opportunities to get in early, and never committed, and looked back with some regret (maybe not that last one). This will not be that. My goal is to go from zero to revenue dollar $1 before the end of the year and in 2017 make enough profit to cover the cost of training and equipment, put that second $1 in the frame on the wall. I trust this is achievable, and am ready to dedicate hours and cash and see how high I can fly (is that a cliche yet?). I'm going to click the Submit button and go pull the trigger, tonight I'm enrolling in Drone Pilot Ground School. Let's do this!
