Thanks for your questions. If by "users here" you mean pilots and not customers, then the answer to your question is more income. Simple as that. Unless your schedule is already completely packed subcontracting for other services, we serve as just another source of jobs. If you had to choose between two services for some reason then you would have to make a choice depending on how the two services compare as far as the details of their offer. As far as we are concerned, you can work as a subcontractor for as many companies as you want.
How much do we pay? It varies widely depending on three main factors: (a) the pilot's capability - which is a combination of their experience, skills, efficiency, and their reliability/thoroughness/attention to detail, (b) whether or not the lead for the job came from them or us, and (c) the area of the country they are working in. What we are finding is there are many experienced drone pilots throughout the country that would like to increase their income without the time, cost and complexity of starting and running their own business. They fly and get paid for it, we take care of everything else. For many, this is an ideal situation, especially if they have another job. In addition, we also compensate you for your travel time.
We have an article on our website titled Starting a Drone Business Is More Than Photography - Ideas, Plans, Pricing. It's by no means an exhaustive examination of all the ins and outs of starting and operating all aspects of the business but it sheds insight into some important considerations.
Lead time is flexible to fit within the pilot's schedule, but the goal of getting the job done is of course always ASAP. Only a small percentage of our jobs would require a lead time of 48 hours or less. Most jobs we would be within schedule with a lead time of up to 7 days.
We would not assign a job to a pilot that requires FAA Authorization without first obtaining that authorization. Many of our clients are large companies that require a certificate of insurance that names both us and them on the policy. The insurance coverage is voided if the pilot is violating Federal laws or regulations. So pilots flying without required authorization or waivers would essentially be flying with no insurance. If something happens, you can expect that all parties even indirectly involved can and will be sued. That includes the pilot, the company the pilot is working for, and the customer if the plaintiff is different from the customer. Heck they may even sue the Drone or Drone Software manufacturer if the cause was a hardware or software defect.
Hope that answers your questions.
