    Command Drone Seminars

    1. I would say right now, it would be construction and land surveying (where the bulk of my work comes from). It is great because I get reoccurring work. You might be thinking real estate, but it is a very oversaturated market, low profits, and are usually one time jobs. 2. I think a seminar is great for a pilot to network and learn some great insight. But it really comes down to your budget and how much you're willing to spend. 3. The best all-around drone on the market is the DJI Phantom 4 pro! You will be able to get almost any job with a Phantom 4 pro. Here is a good video I what to consider when buying a drone.

    Drone Pictures in Construction - Training

    For construction, you are going to want to learn and be comfortable with autonomous functions. Of course, learning how to fly manually is an obvious must. Flying autonomous missions will get you actionable data, and with a drone you can take the same picture and video, over and over again. A good application is Litchi.

    How to Find Drone Work During the Winter

    @Alan Perlman Thanks Alan!
  4. While the winter has historically been a lean time for the commercial UAV industry, I have been very fortunate to scale up this winter, to the point where I am getting the most amount of jobs (mostly reoccurring jobs) in my career. I have to give UAV Coach a big thank you for my recent successes and I would like to share some of my experiences and secrets with this community. Below is a video I produced on this subject. And if your looking for any tips or things I may have missed please let me know in the forum.

    What kind of drone is best for beginners?

    If you're a true rookie I would start off with a holystone drone that you can get off of Amazon. They are cheap, they allow you to crash and they will teach you fundamental flight maneuvers. Check out this video for more information:

    Kittyhawk: A Must Have Drone App

    @Luke Kittyhawk has a couple of viewing options for airspace, including the street style view (similar to air map) or a sectional chart. Which makes for good versatility.
  7. Hey Everybody. I translated one of my most popular blog articles "10 enemies of a drone pilot" into a video. I think this video and article are great for beginners just learning how to fly as well as professionals who deal with this on a daily basis. I am adding a poll and would love to hear your thoughts. Thank you in advance.

    Kittyhawk: A Must Have Drone App

    Hey Everybody, I found out about this app called Kittyhawk.io and I am in love. This app and website has virtually everything! Including: -Seamless ways to add pre-flight, in-flight, and post-flight checklist -Very easy and convenient way to log your flights (syncs with the DJI go app) -You can save locations (great for those like me who do a couple of recurring jobs) -A convenient way to store important documents like insurance and necessary registrations. -And BEST of all you can apply for LAANC authorization directly through the app In my humble opinion Kittyhawk is the Target/Walmart for professional drone pilot and drone service providers. Hope you all enjoy and let me know your thoughts Best,
  9. Hey Pilots, For all those who are interested in or see what it takes to work for a big budget Hollywood production. This article provides some great insight: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/day-life-movie-set-drone-pilot-bobby-watts/ Spoiler alert* (You may need at least $60,000 just to get started)

    Hawaii allowed droneflying zones

    @Jojo check out this site here: https://faa.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=9c2e4406710048e19806ebf6a06754ad
  11. Hey Pilots! I had to do some airspace research for an upcoming and I found this great resource for drone airspace that is administered directly from the FAA. Here is the link: https://faa.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=9c2e4406710048e19806ebf6a06754ad What I like about it is that it tells you: 1. Airspace Class 2. The Ceiling 3. Associated Airport (in case you need to call in) 4. And if it is LAANC ready or not ready I hope this helps pilots in the field and those that are studying for their Part 107 test. Let me know your thoughts below. Best,

    Flight BVLOS

    Wow, this is a very informational thread, look forward to hearing the end result. Out of curiosity. Does anybody know how many BVLOS waivers have been issued?

    Large drones

    Hey Dale, If you want to operate a drone with a 300-1000 pound payload, you will be able to do that under part 107. Where the maximum weight payload included is 55 lbs.
