  1. Hey Everybody, I have been very busy lately but recently I wrote an article on why 2019 has been a difficult year for consumer and prosumer pilots. It is not the end of the drone world but some of these entries are very frustrating. Anyways the link is below, let me know what you think in the forum: https://crescentflightops.com/blog/f/10-reasons-why-2019-has-been-a-difficult-year-for-the-drone-indus
  2. Hey pilots, I am heading to Orlando, FL for business in a couple of weeks. I have one afternoon open, and you know what that is going to be used for 🤗. I know Disney is off limits so where are some cool places to capture with a drone in Orlando or the vicinity. Let me know!
  3. My best advice is to fly all the time, if not every day. Consume drone-related content every single day. Find ways to add value and have some fun!
  4. Recently I had the opportunity to pitch a drone service in a small business pitch competition. While I did not win, a lot of people loved my presentation and it led to a reoccurring job. I posted my experiences in a video below. While I list a few things you will need, to me the most important aspect is finding a differentiator in the drone service industry and visually displaying your value to your clients. Below is the video, let me know what you think in the forum.
  5. Thank you @Chase Flynn | UAV Coach it took me nearly to fly fulltime! While there isn't a direct pathway yet, that gives many qualified, passionate, and skilled individuals a chance to work in an incredibly exciting industry.
  6. @Chase Flynn | UAV Coach I hope you're right! I have done a lot of mapping missions for companies and they only want the P4P. But we shall see, 2019 is gearing up to be an interesting year for the drone industry, it has not been the best but hopefully it will change.
  7. @Dave Pitman 😂 New age businesses do not care about sales and satisfying their customers it's all about "funding" and whose on the Board of Directors.
  8. I hyped up Kittyhawk for a while, but I was wrong and I am going to explain why I am eating this delicious crow. Kittyhawk is the second biggest drone disappointment of 2019 (first being the Phantom 4 series). First, their LAANC system is down for 2 weeks, then it comes back BUT you can't file for an airspace authorization in advance unless you have the enterprise option...which you can't even get a quote on. What a joke.
  9. @Isabella | UAV Coach Thank you for your kind words! I think that people who aspire to work in the industry especially as an operator will face a myriad of challenges. However, these challenges can be overcome.
  10. @Everett the Phantom 4 Pro is objectively praised as the best all-around drone on the market. Many believe that the imagery is still better than the Hasselblad camera on the Mavic Pro 2. Anywho it doesn't make sense that DJI releases a mapping software that is exclusively only available for a drone that is not in production. In addition, adding a mapping software that does not include your latest product relegates the Mavic Series to only basic photography and videography (minus the Mavic 2 Enterprise).
  11. Hey everybody. I have been a big fan of Kittyhawk.io but this is pretty disappointing. Kittyhawk's LAANC system is down till next week. If you need auto airspace authorization you can try Airmap or Skyward. Best,
  12. Hey pilots. recently DJI halted production on the Phantom 4 series. DJI has its "reasons" but this is a blow to the drone industry because the Phantom 4 Pro is widely regarded as the best all-around drone on the market. The industry is leaning too much toward to hobbyists with a steady stream of foldable drones while leaving out more serious commercial pilots (we are their customers too!). I believe the community needs to come together to show our dismay with DJI. I think the best action to do is by contacting DJI (https://www.dji.com/contact) with our thoughts. If enough people reach out to them, it could give them a reason to change course.
