    Hi Nick, Talking to the owner before flying and explaining what you are doing, and the flight plan you will follow to keep people safe on the job site may help gain the owner's trust and approval. Perhaps the owner would be interested in using your photographs as well. Also, having your Part 107 and basic drone liability insurance would be helpful as well. If that doesn't work, I agree with Av8Chuck, you will need to weigh whether it's worth the risk to jeopardize the relationship. David

    Hi @Emmett Long, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! All drones that weigh more than 0.55 lbs must be registered regardless of if they will be used for either recreational or commercial operations. The DJI Mavic Pro would need to be registered, which is a very simply process and the registration can be completed on the FAA DroneZone website. It is important to know that drones can not be flown over people in the United States, but you can still capture great footage without being directly over people. To learn more about U.S. drone laws, I suggest looking at our U.S.A 'Drone Laws' page. As long as the footage recorded with the drone does not make any money (Commercial Operation) then you would fly as a hobbyist or recreational user which does not require any certification. The Remote ID regulations that you are referring to do have operational limitations on hobbyist users but those regulations have not been passed. The FAA posted the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking which allows the public to comment on the proposed rule making for Remote ID. The comment period has ended at this time. So personally I would not be concerned with that at this point in time. To learn more about Remote ID, you can check out our article on that topic here. I hope this helps and feel free to ask us any questions! - Chase

    There are times that you benifit from the property your shooting, they’re awesome, added to your video they look even better. This property, not so much but you still made it look great. Ok, it’s been a while — I hate you. Nice work.
