  1. Right, there's the "line of sight" component to this as well. Good point.
  2. Hey Gary, pardon the delayed response and thanks for posting here. I'm wondering if you could use a DJI Mavic 2 Pro with this payload attachment accessory? That payload attachment price feels high, I'm sure there are other options out there. And you could figure out a way to package and attach your WiFi router securely? The DJI Mavic 2 Pro has an intelligent flight mode called Waypoints that you could use to program an autonomous flight. You could use an app like Litchi to do this as well. Would love it if you shared your progress with the project in this forum thread.
  3. Hi Braden, thanks for reaching out. While the new recurrent training and test are supposed to go live on 4/6, the new initial test that you need to take isn't necessarily going live on that date. And that 4/6 deadline has been pushed back 2x already. So it might be several more weeks. All this to say, I'd go ahead and take your test. When the new recurrent training is live, it'll be free and online and you can go through it whenever you'd like to be able to fly at night under the new rules.
  4. Hey @Alex1200 — was your question around getting a license? That part is pretty straightforward. Here's our guide that walks through the process of getting an FAA Remote Pilot Certificate to fly your drone for business purposes. As for flying a drone in New York City, that's a little more complicated. More info in this article that my team put together over here: https://uavcoach.com/where-to-fly-drone/new-york-city/
  5. Hey @NamVol, thanks for sharing your question. The nature of your flight is recreational, so you'd be flying under those rules: https://www.faa.gov/uas/recreational_fliers/ You can punch your property's address into an app like B4UFLY or Airmap. Those apps will show you the airspace and whether or not you need to request airspace authorization. And most of the time you can request authorization right from within the app. Happy to answer any additional questions!
  6. WOW, this is unreal. The flights are superb, but the sound fx is MAGICAL, you did such a great job with this.
  7. Adam good to see you in here! Has been a while since I've been to downtown Nashville to fly, need to get out there for a sunrise / sunset shoot one of these days. Love the Canyon Lake Finger Tour video on your website, looks like a really cool place to fly.
  8. Beautiful storytelling as always. Appreciate you checking in and hope you're well! At 1:06, are you using a Ken Burns effect? It's a short clip, but I really like the motion and can't figure out why I like it so much
  9. Hi all, if you're not familiar with Loveland Innovations, they've made a huge impact helping folks use drones in roofing, insurance, and solar inspections. We partnered with them a few years ago, and everyone I've spoken with who uses their product is a huge fan. They reached out to me with an opportunity that I wanted to share: ### Are you interested in high-quality drone pilot jobs for top insurance carriers? Have a Phantom 4 Pro (V1 or V2) or a Mavic 2 Pro and an iOS device? Apply to be a part of the Loveland Innovations services network. Fly and inspect properties and
  10. Thanks, Jim! We'll get that photo updated, appreciate your keen eyes. (cc @Chase Flynn | UAV Coach)
  11. I had a lot of fun networking with folks at the Women and Drones Coffee Connection — it's a group of folks in the drone industry that meet on Tuesday mornings. https://womenanddrones.com/online-events/ There were about 20-30 people when I participated. They have a spotlight speaker who leads a discussion for 10-15 minutes, then Q&A, then we broke out into smaller groups to chat / network more. Really great program, got to meet some new people in the industry, would encourage you to check out!
