  5. Ryan Deremo is a Drone Pilot Ground School alum and owner of the aerial services company SkyFly Cinematics, which is based in Los Angeles, CA. Ryan started his aerial work doing shots for wedding and real estate, and eventually broke into movies and television—in fact, we interviewed Ryan a while back on how to get started doing movie and T.V. work with drones. I recently sat down again with Ryan to hear about his experience as the drone pilot on set for the new Hollywood film Breaking and Exiting, a dark romantic comedy about suicide prevention and awareness. Check out the interview here to learn about Ryan's work on set, and chime in with any thoughts or comments you might have.

  9. Hello, I am Kevin Hiatt a recently retired airline pilot and aviation safety executive. I have a great background in fixed wing aircraft operations and safety processes. I would like to learn as much about UAVs and perhaps break into the commercial sUAS market. I look forward to reading more of all the information that is provided on UAV Coach. Thanks for a great website!
  10. DJI drones helped track and stop the Notre Dame fire Source 1, Source 2 , video Gabriel Plus was later reported to have said: A video from the French Ministry of the Interior shows some of the drone footage as well as their operators. As we fully support female drone pilots, we’d like to point out that in one of the shots, a woman is seen holding the controls Of interest: Mavic 2 Pro , Matrice for public safety
  11. Hey guys, Here are this week’s new tracks. Free to use with attribution. Enjoy! 8-BIT ANTICS – Maybe for a cute retro-2D game? Or something else? Chiptunes 3 | THE ANT HILL GANG SADDLES UP AGAIN – And they’re off…the most incompetent gang to ever (attempt to) ride across the west. They’ll probably get lost. Anyhow, this might be fun in a comedic western-themed piece. Funny 6 | TECHNO RANDOMNESS – Unlike many of my tracks that are built layer by layer, this one was done “live” (in real-time) by improvising with two of my synths at the same time. Perhaps useful in some kind of wacky technology-based puzzle game? Puzzle Music 4 | DYSTOPIAN SUNSET – Perched atop a mile-high structure, the machine-being stares out over the shimmering grid, wondering what the night will bring. Sci-Fi 7 |

  14. Hi all, I just got this email from one of our students: Here was my response back to him, and curious how other pilots in this forum choose to weigh in. --- Hi there, both great models! "Worth it" is highly dependant on you and your goals as a 'dronepreneur' Some quick thoughts: How will you ever know without trying? Both models are perfectly suitable tools for taking high-quality aerial photos / video. I know pros who still use the Phantom 3, which isn't as strong of a camera or sensor set as your two options right now. The magic isn't in the camera itself, but the post-production...see the latest videos in this thread and feel free to scroll back a few pages to see earlier additions. Some great professional real estate marketers sharing their videos! It's a very consultative sales process — you're going to have to hustle and grind and keep building out your list of target clients and proactively reaching out to them to better understand what kind of service delivery (pricing, packaging, turnaround time, etc.) you feel comfortable with. It's a young industry. There's a TON of opportunity out there, but it's not easy money by any means. Building any kind of service-based business is really tough. Hope that helps!
  15. Hi all, I recently severed my signal line transmission cable on my Mavic Pro. I see they are available for sale, is this something I can replace my self?
  16. I am a videographer and web designer looking to extend my services to aerial photography. Oscar
  17. Hi, there. I wanted to purchase a drone but I don't know much about it. Could you recommend one or send me the link for the one you bought?
  18. After what seemed like forever, working the puzzle of weather, availability, cleaning, etc, I've finally been able to wrap this piece for a 9,000+ square foot oceanfront home, listed at just under $30M. Enjoy!
  19. Well done, you made for a very interesting exterior-only presentation! I love the CrumplePop tracking you used, definitely going to look into it for FCPX. I've been using another platform that works most of the time, but sometimes (the most important times it seems) it totally fails. I'm with's annoying to have to jump through DJI's hoops to accomplish what the governing airspace body has already approved. Glad it worked out for you, and let's always hope for the best in that area. Thanks for sharing, nice vid overall!
  20. Parrot announced their ANAFI Thermal Drone earlier to today. Price is $1900.
  21. Hey pilots, I am heading to Orlando, FL for business in a couple of weeks. I have one afternoon open, and you know what that is going to be used for 🤗. I know Disney is off limits so where are some cool places to capture with a drone in Orlando or the vicinity. Let me know!
  22. My best advice is to fly all the time, if not every day. Consume drone-related content every single day. Find ways to add value and have some fun!
