  1. Yes, I concur with what you say. I have productively worked with many surveyors who spend inordinate amounts of time chasing title and metes-and-bounds descriptions. But, any good public university offers coursework in how to build maps and maybe has a department of Geography. I don't think it is a simple matter at all and I hope you won't take issue with my comment. I think Av8Chuck is right. Maybe that's why my prices are so high
  2. Even providing surface files from which any spatial data can be derived is not land surveying. Plenty of publicly available data from the USGS, online, for example.
  3. Acquiring imagery is not land surveying. It can be definitely a useful part, but it is not conducting a licensed survey. My drone flights are conducted with the objective of doing photogrammetry i.e. precision aerial photography. I know of no state licensure program for a photogrammatrist. Even if I collate all the spatial data and generate maps, it is not surveying. Greg V. makes a very salient point that an x-ray technician is not a radiologist and has no business practicing medicine. But, guaranteed, the radiologist can't effectively do their jobs without an image technician.
  4. Mr. Fenigsohn, I am interested in test flights using your platform. I am happy to provide a CV and particulars upon request. Part 107 certified in NYS since 2016. Contact at
  5. Started on a Mambo. Favorite is the Bebop 2 (still humming @ 4 yrs). Still have Anafi Work for 2 years. Commercial customer support is thin but overall great products! Part 107 #3938554 since 2016. vb77
  6. Apparently another, earlier post of mine did not make it. No, you don't need "type certificates" or other sUAS license. However, I have found great benefit in learing as much about drones, their histories, flight planning and their limitations by taking coursework through Emby-Riddle's Online Campus. Their coursework is pricey, no doubt, but thorough and rewarding. If you want to learn about small unmanned aircraft systems (beyond 15 CFR Part 107), this is a good start:
  7. Oh, and having finished Alan's coursework, the faculty of ERAU will certainly appreciate your input. I know they did mine.
  8. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University ( offers great small unmanned aircraft system coursework through their office of professional education, Worldwide campus.
  9. The offer just below the return shipping cost to me was downright insulting. I mentioned it to them ... politely 🙂
  10. I'll add that there is no way to have many accessories like prop guards or floats (NIB) estimated online.
  11. Not at all. I sent the a/c in for appraisal. In short, cost to me was $4-6 to keep my own unit. Heed my warning.
  12. Just a side note. After Isabella's somewhat recent article about the Autel trade in program, I went a-looking for some others and found DJI's. I have a low-time, older Phantom 3 that I basically started videography with but that I haven't flow in years. For credit toward a newer model of DJI product, the DJI trade-up program offers credit for a new DJI product by trading in an older model; the cost for you to ship to them is free (they will email you a shipping label). I sent a Phantom 3 standard with an unused float kit, two new batteries and four propeller guards (with eight servi
  13. Congrats, Alan and your team! I also always look forward to your weekly newsletter. Thank you too for your training and support! V.
