  1. @Jason Bagnell — great video, thanks for sharing! @MorganCaldbeck — "Therefore, effective immediately, we only need to provide authorizations for Class E airspace if the airport itself is a Class E airport." So it's just the magenta dashed circle. If you're within 400 ft. of a tower like in the video example above, and you fly up past 700 ft. AGL when there's a magenta fuzzy line (Class E transition area), then no authorization is needed.
  2. Love your background, thanks for joining this forum and that's fascinating re: the bathymetry project. So much fun to use cutting edge technology to do stuff like this!
  3. Great domain name and thanks for posting here, @Paddy Evans.
  4. Welcome, @EarlC! Good luck with the 107 certification process, and hope you're enjoying the Mavic Mini. Great model!
  5. Welcome, @Nicksyve! Thanks for joining and congrats on the move. How's the CFI training going? One of our hands-on flight instructors is a pilot and flies drones as a side business in Florida. Definitely possible to do both at the same time!
  6. Welcome @jjwallace! What part of Michigan? @Chase Flynn | UAV Coach is up there as well. The winter months are a great time to focus on all the business stuff. Love the Mavic Air and actually took mine out to fly a couple of weeks ago for the first time in a while.
  7. "As a result I focus on collecting the data which also helps to overcome any anxiety I feel about flying the drone." Well said, @Av8Chuck. I think about it the same way.
  8. Beautiful! How long was the hyperlapse? My guess is that this was almost the full battery.
  9. Welcome, @Kevin0! What do you think of the Skydio 2? We've been talking with some public safety agencies that are evaluating it as an option for indoor / close quarter flying.

    Good day to you too, @KBMON! Thanks for joining our forum and blue skies and safe flying to you. Alan
  11. Welcome, @mahanke! Hope the course is going well, let us know if you have any questions along the way! Alan
  12. Very cool — I know there are businesses like this with other photography / filmmaking equipment. How are things going so far? What kind of numbers can you share with us?
  13. Agree with @David M. — lots of slightly used drones on Craigslist and FB marketplace. Some are sold in this forum as well!
