  1. I would like to be a beta test pilot. I am Part 107 with over 250 hours of flight time. I am based in Louisiana, which is one of the emerging drone service and utility markets in the country. I can be reached at
  2. Tips for flying in the French Quarter. The Airspace is Class G, HOWEVER, there is a lot of aerial traffic in the area including coast guard helicopters, military jets, and of course other drone pilots 🙂. The best shots are going to be of Jackson Square and St. Louis Cathedral (the white church). If you want to get the front of the church with the city in the background for a golden hour go at sunrise, if you want to get the back of the church with a river shot for a golden hour go at sunset. Try not to fly to far because the magnetic interference is really bad and you will get
  3. Hey pilots this is Captain Philip with another drone video tour of the French Quarter, this 300 year old neighborhood is the tourist gem of New Orleans. Filled with history, art, architecture, culture, night life and more. Below is the tour with beautiful aerial imagery and insightful information. Also I am going to post a comment under of tips of how to fly in the French Quarter if you ever make your way to New Orleans.
  4. Greetings, Below is a drone video tour of the Louisiana swamp lands! This video has a lot of great imagery and great information so I hope you enjoy!
  5. Two years ago, I had the opportunity to get drone footage of an offshore oil rig deep in the Gulf of Mexico! I recently repurposed it and turned it into an "aerial tour". Topics I touch on include the oil and gas industry in the state of Louisiana, the size and scope of an offshore oil platform, and a look into the BP oil disaster. Hope you enjoy!
  6. It's a four part process in my opinion 1. Find ways to bring value to your clients. 2. Next find ways to set you apart from the competition and/or get noticed organically. 3. Find ways to showcase and market your talents 4. Deliver EVERYTIME! Hope this helps. Best,
  7. @Zacc DukowitzAnother one from Los Angeles. It was a wild night in the City of Angels!
  8. @Cap'n Chip I had something like that happen to me a few months ago (I have been flying commercial for three years). I was on a large construction site and my Phantom 4 Pro plopped out the sky as well. I thought it had hit one of the tall cranes. But upon looking at the data it was nowhere near the crane. A worker recovered it and luckily no one was hurt.
  9. Have a great fourth of July Weekend. Check out this aerial tour of the USS Alabama, a World War 2 Battleship that played a part in many campaigns in the Pacific Theater.
  10. Hey Everybody, Curiosity post/poll, which drone is everyone looking to buy or have bought this year curious to see the answers!
  11. @Charles Westerfield I would imagine not many, at least from an airspace perspective. Most of the sites are in Class G Airspace.
  12. Hey everybody. For the past twenty years, Louisiana has been a well sought out destination for the film and television industry. Dubbed "Hollywood South", the state has produced billion-dollar box office hits, Academy Award Winners, and everything in between. We will be taking a look at some of the most famous movie locations in Louisiana, so sit back relax and enjoy your tour!
  13. Next time flip the switch to Atti mode (left side of the controller). That will turn off all the satellites as well as obstacle avoidance so you will have to fly manually.
  14. Hey Pilots Philip back here and recently I had a fairly close encounter while flying my drone near Biloxi, Mississippi. After flying, heading home, and going over the footage I realized that I was about 50 ft away from a lurking alligator! I document this encounter below: Let me know what you think! Best,
  15. I will be heading to the UAV Expo. I am only doing the exhibition hall but I will be going to the flight demo on Monday morning.
  16. Doing a drone reshoot is never fun (especially when it is in a difficult environment to fly). And that is if you are able to do reshoot! Imagine being commissioned by a big time client to film and fly an event, and something prevents you from delivering a great final product; it could be a big blow to your career. Check out this article about things to consider to prevent a drone reshoot. I hope this helps somebody! Question: If anybody has had to a drone reshoot what were the reason(s)?
  17. 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:
  18. 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!
  19. 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!
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
