  1. Congrats on your first drone...they are a blast. Mainly fly safe and manage your batteries to get the most out of them. Each model is different and I don't know your particular model, but on my DJI drones I store the batteries at about 60% charge, never charge them when they are hot, and watch for swelling/cracking etc. Your owner manual should have some good guidelines, and YouTube is your friend Happy flying!
  2. Anyone have a p4p v2 controller they no longer need? Dropped mine and need a replacement. Thank you! joey (AT)
  3. Any chance you have a P4P V2 controller? Dropped mine and need a replacement. Thank you. joey AT
  4. You haven't shared any details on the airspace you are working in, so I can't give much specific advice, but here goes: No on #1. #2 is yes, you can get wide-area authorizations and long term authorizations for specific areas, but you will have to do the work and submit for them manually. For example, I have a large commercial development in DMA Class C airspace (Air Force base) marked as 0 altitude with no ability to submit for authorization in LANCC. I now have a standing authorization to fly at 150' for the next 2 years. This makes sense for me as there are may people that need ae
  5. Given what you've shared, I'd say a compelling email is a good start with an offer to try you out, taking care not to "cheapen" your services where they expect a deal every time. Often they will try someone new, especially if you have some good work to show them. Do some research on who to contact - the luxury real estate market uses our services the most. You'll have the most luck with them. Others will debate this, but you may want to do a job for free here and there, depending on your level of experience and if you have a portfolio already. Also look at commercial real estate brokers.
  6. I can't speak to what's on the UAV Coach website, but I would think you'd want to go by Georgia State Parks says on their website:,ways help promote the sites. See the last entry on the page titled Drones. Looks like drones are prohibited unless you have a waiver, for commercial purposes, with permission from the division director.
  7. Hi all. I am getting ready to submit an analysis and recommendations to increase altitude limits for some grids around Davis Monthan Air Force Base. Has anyone in the group successfully submitted a request like this to an AFB or to the FAA directly? Thank you.
  8. Odd question I know, but I know some areas are not LAANC enabled. Can a recreational flyer file for a wide-area authorization through FAA Drone Zone?
  9. Good to know. I'm sure the Evo II will be a big improvement. For now I'm keeping my money.
  10. I'm disappointed with the Evo 2 delay, but I'm glad because it's given me time to do a bit more research. I was ready to buy the Evo 2, but now I'm going to wait for the Mavic 3 instead to make a decision. Now that I've seen some more in-depth comparisons with the Evo 2 vs the Mavic 2, I have serious reservations on the Evo 2, particularly with video quality.
  11. Cool video. You certainly have some nice scenery to work with!
  12. Welcome @Bill G, and congrats on your impending retirement.
  13. @Kamau54 Welcome to the forum. SW Michigan...I spent some time in St. Joseph/Benton Harbor. Gorgeous area, but COLD! I bet you'll get some beautiful footage around the lake when it warms up. I posted an article on LinkedIn the other day, How To Stay Out Of Trouble With Your New Drone. You may have learned all this already but it's a quick and you may find it useful. Happy flying. Looking forward to seeing some of your work.
  14. I'd use those filters to capture some awesome Arizona sunsets for sure.
  15. Ditto on talking to folks in person. Identify a problem, offer a solution. Go for the low hanging fruit - higher volume, luxury real estate, commercial real estate, and construction. Pick the ones you want to work with, then offer them something of value.
