  1. Whats good my fellow UAV Community; I hope you all are having an AWESOME weekend!!! The reason for my post is because I'm just curious if anyone has any suggestions on how one can go about generating 3-D mapping & modeling business with construction companies, wind turbine companies, and cell phone tower providers. I've tried to get ahold of entities like Verizon's Telecom Dept. but I can't get ahold of anyone. I'm also very interested in trying to work with and provide construction companies and architectural firms with this beneficial service, but I'm not sure what's the best approach to generate this kind of service. Also, what's the best way to get training for 3-D Mapping and modeling? Your help and expertise would be appreciated. Thank you all for your time. Joe C.
  2. Chris, thank you for posting this. That was totally ridiculous on that individual's part. I hate to say it but we know his issue was not really about drones; pretty sad. Kuddos to you though on staying controlled. That would have been hard for me especially when he was disrespecting and profiling you. Anyhow, keep up the good work bro.
  3. L&L Drone Views, I understand where you are coming from and thank you for sharing your candid insight. As for myself, I'm learning and getting a true feel regarding professionals in the business such as yourself and others, who have shared their experiences regarding this issue and others that has posed challenges to the dreams many of us share, of either developing or further developing these awesome and useful services. Recently, I talked to a business consultant/instructor who gave me some tips. He also handed me this book to read called, "All In Start Up". Now let me be clear, im not promoting anything here, but I just thought I would mention that this book I'm reading has some potentially helpful tips that may or (may not) give you or others some helpful tips regarding our different and possibly simular plights. An to be honest, in my opinion, "The Old School Way," is not bad at all.
  4. Thank you Av8Chuck for sharing your experiences and in-depth info. This is very helpful.
  5. What's good, my fellow UAS Entreprenaurs? As I'm sure you all know, the UAS community is embarking on some EXCITING new times and opportunities, that continues to not only revolutionize how different industries operate, but more importantly, how we provide top notch and very needed services to our consumers. However, with that being said, I'm sure many of you regardless of how long you have been operating your business, have or are, experiencing different challenges that I'm sure has provided some discouragement. So my question to all of you is, WHAT CHALLENGES are you or have you faced running your UAS business?
  6. Good morning all. I just have a general question regarding what your suggestion(s) would be on how to go about selling farmers on the idea of utilizing AG Drone Companies to regularly monitor/scout their crops. I've been doing a lot of research the last year an a 1/2 on Ag drone models, FAA rules & regulations, etc. because I'm very interested in starting my own company. So I was going through a list of possible rebuttals that Farmers might have as to why they don't feel it's necessary to use an AG Drone Company for crop monitoring and one of the rebuttals I came up with that they might have is that they might say, "why spend the money to have someone else do it when they can do it themselves". What would be your suggestion on how to get around this an any other popular rebuttals that is prevalent in the farming communities who may not be so Gung-ho on this new an beneficial technology?Also, most farmers I think on average pay row walker's or scouts to look over their crops about $1.50 to $2.00 an acre what is the avg. per acre that most of you are seeing, that most Ag drone companies charge farmers to monitor/scout their crops? An do any of you have any tips as to the best ways to go about casting a net to gauge interest and sell your business to farmers, state & government agencies, utility companies, etc.?Your feed back will be very much appreciated, thank you all for your time and have a great day.
