  1. There are literally several if you google photography tutorials. Toms's Tech Time, on You tube. Tony Northrop is a good one. DPreview5d i think its called. No film school is another one, mostly for video. All of these are relevant.
  2. You need to do more! For one most realtors have no idea on the 107. That is something they don't care about minus their liability for negligently hiring the kid on his skateboard. For starters you need to show them your work. It always boils down to your work and what your end product is. You have a Yuneec Typhoon, not a bad system, but so what? What makes you different than the thousand other people in Houston who have Typhoons, Phantoms, Mavics and other like platforms? Also what are you providing? Ok you get some various elevated shot angles of a house. The realtor probably o
  3. This is straight out of the Remote Pilot Study Guide. "In most cases, a remote pilot will not need ATC authorization to operate in Class E airspace." also The primary airport(s) within the TRSA become(s) Class D airspace. The remaining portion of the TRSA overlies other controlled airspace, which is normally Class E airspace beginning at 700 or 1,200 feet and established to transition to/ from the en route/terminal environment. TRSAs are depicted on VFR sectional charts and terminal area charts with a solid black line and altitudes for each segment. The Class D portion is chart
  4. I don't think you do need permission. For one there is no option for it under the ATC COA portal, there is only SFC-E. You can't even request like Class E to 700 or 1200. If you ctrl-F Class E in the 107 "big document," all the references are just for boundaries of surface areas of Class E at airports. My thought is that they would have explicitly stated just simply Class E and not E to the surface. I think the rationale is that E to surface at an airport would expect a higher volume of IFR traffic coming into altitudes that would put the remote aircraft closer to traffic. IFR traff
  5. I think one of the challenges of running a UAS company is getting away from the mentality of being a UAS business and more of end product service provider that offers a full spectrum of services beyond the flying system. When I started 7 years ago it was all about the drone. That was for the exact same reasons AV8Chuck mentioned. You could not just get one that was easy to fly and ready to go with some minimal setup. You were soldering and integrating components to try to piece together a reasonable platform to do a job. You did not have to be an engineer. However, you needed to have som
