  1. Ok Ya'll so I took the test today. While it says there is an introduction and 3 sections, it really is an introduction and one section. It took me about an hour or so to get through the intro and section one. Sections 2 and 3 are essentially other resources for you. Yes, you do need to get a 100% on the test - it was a 45 question multiple choice test. If you did read through the lessons you should be fine. Happy to answer any questions people have. Cheers, Adam
  2. Has anyone taken it yet? Do you actually need a 100%? Likely will take it tomorrow as I lapsed a few days ago....and can update this thread afterwards. -Adam
  3. Thanks everyone for the information. Definitely helpful. @T3rdEye, I think that you can only do that once so for those of us who have already done that, when our 6 months are up, we will have to take a recurrent test. @Alex Martin I am hoping it is not 12-18 months before it comes out, especially since they already have the 6 month course from 2020 during COVID Lockdown. I guess I'll give it another few weeks and see if more information comes out before booking an in-person exam for end of March when my 6 month extension runs out. Thanks everyone for the information and hopefully more will come out soon to clarify everything even more. Cheers.
  4. Would be interested as well as I took the online test to stay current due to COVID but that 6 month extension is coming up. Would be great to just have to take an online course to stay current vs going to a PSI test center. @Alan Perlman any insight into this? Thanks! -Adam
  5. Hi All, I am looking for a drone pilot in Atlanta, GA who has experience doing 3D Models from Drone Deploy software. You must have a Drone Deploy business plan or higher as I will need the output file format to be LAS. Email me at adamgoldbergphotography@gmail.com . Cheers, Adam
  6. Thanks for the comments. Yes, I know the laws - which is why I got my FAA clearance (it was a 0 AGL zone so I had to submit an airspace authorization request, not a LAANC). Was just curious as to if anyone would not fly. I think @Av8Chuck makes a good point about not asking permission. There is a difference between asking permission and letting them know you are going to be flying right next to a helicopter landing spot. Most hospitals I have worked with have appreciated the heads up and just ask for your phone number so they can call if there is an inbound helicopter - and I have been called and informed as such in the past. Anyways, was just throwing this out for discussion. For the record, I flew and had no issues (and received a thumbs up from the hospital before the flight anyway.) Cheers!
  7. Hi All, Wanted to get the communities take on this. I have FAA approval for a flight near 3 hospitals. Max - per my approval - is 150ft AGL. I thought I'd reach out and give a courtesy call to the hospitals to let them know when and where I'd be flying. Two of the hospitals were as pleasant as could be. The third more or less said "no" at this time - but would get back to me - (they wanted a week lead time of a heads up so they could communicate and coordinate it and decide on approving or not). The hospital is about 1/3 to 1/2 mile from the drone launch site and where I will mostly be flying. I would be flying for a 3rd party client. Would you still do the flight without a thumbs up from the 3rd hospital (assuming you got the go ahead from your client)? -Adam
  8. Hi @newejuice. I actually created a post about this - you can check it out here. https://agoldbergphoto.com/10-tips-to-improve-your-drone-photography/ Happy to answer any questions you have! Cheers, Adam
  9. Here is another image as well!
  10. Hi All, Recently got back from the Caribbean with my Mavic Pro 2 and Tiffen Company filters. It is definitely a great travel drone. If you'd like to see more shots, let me know. Enjoy and feedback is always appreciated! Cheers, Adam
  11. Nicely done Alan! Only thing is maybe warm it up a bit since you are saying its sunrise! Cheers, Adam
  12. Thanks all for the responses. @Av8Chuck that is what I figured and similar to actually getting one's license, this is just another checkbox for those of us trying to fly legally. Maybe one day your license will be linked to the maps in DJI and thats the only way areas can be unlocked. @Letac thanks for the insight on the pros and cons of each one - really appreciate it!
  13. I'll have to checkout Skyward. I've had success with AirMap, but still find it odd that I get confirmation of my automatic authorization immediately via a text. Makes me feel like the automatic authorizations are just a check-box that you "agree" to fly within the parameters set with your automatic authorization. Limited to no accountability on the ATC to notify planes that you'll be flying nor on you to fly legally under your authorization.
  14. Looks like an amazing property. Like you, I also offer interiors. Really helps land the jobs! Great work.
