  1. 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.

  3. I recently posted a video. This new video is about the benefits of being a drone pilot. While being able to make a living or even a part-time living as a drone operator can be difficult, It can also be very rewarding! The link is below and for those who do fly fulltime or part-time what do you think are the best benefits? Let us know in the thread!
  4. Hey @dnedzel I highly recommend looking into https://airdata.com/ for flight tracking, monitoring, and analytics. And https://kittyhawk.io/ for drone management and obtaining flight waiver (they also have limited flight tracking). Let me know if this helps.
  5. @dnedzel Thank you so much for your kind words! If you have any work now or in the future I would love to see them. Best,
  6. @OVERSEARTH it really was! One of the best benefits of the drone industry is just how unpredictable it can be. You just really have no idea where it can take you from day-to-day. While it takes a lot of hard work to get there, it makes it well worth it in the end!
  7. Hey UAV Coach Community, I just released my reel. For the past year, I have been very fortunate to work on some incredibly cool and unique projects. From Hollywood to the Gulf of Mexico, this reel represents what an incredible year I was able to experience. For all those looking to make a career in the drone industry, I hope this reel proves that it is more than possible. Special thanks to the team at uavcoach.com. Let me know what you all think. Also please subscribe to the channel as I provide a lot of valuable information to aspiring drone pilots.

  9. Hey Bill, Assuming you are doing instantat authorization, whenever you apply for instant authorization, via kittyhawk.io or airmap, you are going to be prompted to draw a flight plan during the application. Check out this tutorial for a better reference:
  10. I see a lot of new people coming into the community on a daily basis, which is great to see! While it can be exciting to purchase your first drone, you also need the know the correct method of setting up that drone for flight each and every time. Check out this tutorial that I hope can provide a manual to both new and experienced drone pilots.
  11. So what methods are people going to do to put their number on their drone? That is what I am not finding. Am I suppose to print a small piece of paper and tape it on to the drone. Where I live, we get a lot of high precipitation and humidity, and I feel like that label would come right off. Just some of my thoughts, I would like to find out more.
  12. @Alan Perlman @Kemper I did not know that Kittyhawk was not Android compatible. The one upgrade I wish they could enhance is to track flights from flying apps outside of DJI GO. I use Airdata when I have to use dronedeploy, litchi, or autopilot, but it would be nice to have everything under one roof.
  13. @Av8Chuck I am very curious about your criteria is when looking for a qualified pilot? And if possible could I send my information over to you. Less in regards for looking for a job, but more so to see where I measure up in a very competitive market. Best,
  14. @Isabella | UAV Coach I still say a park will always be the safest and convenient place to fly a drone, especially when starting out. I recommend that it is always best to fly where there aren't a lot of people when starting because there are fewer people to both you. This app/website is the best resource for checking on airspace at least from the FAA standpoint: https://faa.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=9c2e4406710048e19806ebf6a06754ad Hope this helps!
  15. @AngryHatter extra batteries for sure! For a carrying case, it may depend on your scope of work or utility. I do a lot of construction gigs so I bring a hard case for those jobs. If you just do photography, or weddings, or real estate a good carrying case ($50 or less). But most important of all you need to know what you're doing in regards to insurance.
