  1. interesting how diversified our fellow drone pilots are and the many uses of these interesting gadgets we use - could be fir business- pleasure- just for a great experience with a son or daughter or perhaps a friend. I believe getting to know the sky’s has changed some many perspectives in our lives and our businesses if using a Mavic mini Mavic pro pro 2 etc. matters not it’s the perspective that’s changed. when could you inspect a roof without a ladder or grab a sunset in all its glory or the early morning sunrise with such detail. real Estate community now relies on great pictures
  2. All above interesting and to the point in the real estate industry these air pirates are pervasive. As a Former State President of Ny State Association of Realtors I am most concerned that these folks are not only not following the law ( subject to a fine of when caught) but are submitting their photos into a national Multiple Liating Setvice for the benefit of profit ( oh really) problem is the Realtor Association doesn’t seem to care if their members are in violation of federal law by using their photos videos in a commercial manner.

  3. Thank you kindly. I’m sure the FAA testing centers will be more up to date shortly
  4. Hi all just set up my recurrent testing for part 107 while in process I asked testing center I used in past if I could take exam prior to the expiration of my current certification ( Sept 1, 2016 issued) no one seems to know my question for all is: if I want to take exam a few weeks before my old certification privileges expire will that carry over to my true expire date¿ no one seems to know does anyone have a clue¿
  5. Good advice and once again appreciated. Great sport and business. Too bad we cannot get a group of mavic pilots together once in awhile to tech one another and just have fun.
  6. Have been reading etc best cable. Some say make sure ends are gold plated for best reception others length is most important Amazon is full of choices- i realized with mini 4 your hands are configured differently on controller so right angle is needed any cable experiences anyone can share?
  7. Wow great reply many thanks womder if my Wilkie talkie I use clipped to vest could interfere with any signals used for me and my spotter. ( referring to your interference comment) Any experience using filters to improve pictures and video? one last question any advice on cold weather flying I understand batteries on both mavic and iPad mini all drain quickly dji says fly above 32 degress hard to do in NY in Winter
  8. Thank you for advice. A happy holiday to you and yours
  9. Located 100 miles north of New York City in rural area. Thousands of Land Conservancy Protected acres in area so hawks, Eagles ( too many Canadian Geese) all hang out here. Not to mention an occasional Helicopter ( not permitted yet land anyway) fun stuff obeying laws watching for predators and avoiding trees. Great fun really - just a kick flying the Mavic
  10. Any experience fitting iPad mini 4 in nanuck 920 case. I have read that yellow fits others don’t. Doesn’t make sense but who knows
  11. Much appreciated and certainly good advice. In our area need to stay away from red tail hawks. My understanding from others is they love to investigate.
  12. Any suggestions on Best you tube videos to watch ( there are just so many channels and how to topics) as new mavic pilot. I have watched Dji go 4 etc etc. hoping any of you have your favorites that you might suggest. i do realize it’s a pretty open question ( sorry about that)
