  1. 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
  2. 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: https://www.enrole.com/erau/jsp/index.jsp?categoryId=5580C1C0
  3. Oh, and having finished Alan's coursework, the faculty of ERAU will certainly appreciate your input. I know they did mine.
  4. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU.edu) offers great small unmanned aircraft system coursework through their office of professional education, Worldwide campus.
  5. The offer just below the return shipping cost to me was downright insulting. I mentioned it to them ... politely 🙂
  6. I'll add that there is no way to have many accessories like prop guards or floats (NIB) estimated online.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Congrats, Alan and your team! I also always look forward to your weekly newsletter. Thank you too for your training and support! V.
  10. A Mavic Mini To add to my growing fleet. Will fly very soon.
  11. Hi Av8Chuck. Always appreciate and look forward to your informative input. I read part 107 to basically say that flight from moving vehicles is waive-able if not conducted over populated areas (i.e. waive-able in "sparsely populated areas") and in no circumstance shall carry for hire. I think the full version of the original rule with comments that supply some context is informative. This section of part 107 has not been amended by the FAA reauthorization act of 2018.
  12. Flight from ground vehicles are pretty much prohibited. I note the "... sparsely populated areas...." language and the Part 14 § 107.205 stipulations Part of which follow here: List of regulations subject to waiver. A certificate of waiver issued pursuant to § 107.200 may authorize a deviation from the following regulations of this part: (a) Section 107.25—Operation from a moving vehicle or aircraft. However, no waiver of this provision will be issued to allow the carriage of property of another by aircraft for compensation or hire. Particulary, regarding language that pr
  13. Hi Isabella. Thanks for your article on Autel's trade-in program. Every manufacturer should consider a similar program, I think. It will, however, introduce considerable logistical considerations (e.g. trade-in receipt and processing) and potential investment burden on any supplier. Yes, I'd look into Autel's offer, at a minimum and can plan to take advantage of it. I have several aircraft in my fleet -- all different platforms, all registered and flown commercially, and all with different mission capabilities. The EVO is a great sUAS in class with the Mavic and Anafi.
