  5. Below is a clip I made for a friend/client of his cabin in Washington State (near Mt. Rainier) Below is another clip I did just flying around my area...

  6. Hi Flying Monkey, Based on what you said, I would contact the person/company that filed for you and ask about the other docs? As I've been waiting since first of the year... I did see all my document information and the other 13 attachments/docs that go with it! I really hope to have it around summer possibly? (June/July) Good LUCK & Happy Waiting!
  7. Thanks Chris, Great to know! Hopefully insurance premiums will continue to go down as the technology matures and gets better! ;-)
  8. Thanks for the compliment! So far so good! No one has complained yet! In fact most people actually stop and ask me a bunch of questions, etc. And are generally very nice! One question I do get asked alot is, does the homeowner "own/or have rights" to the airspace directly above their house? I generally say the FAA has that jurisdiction??? What I do tell/remind them is that also the utility companies actually have what's called an "Aeriel Easement" that extends up to about 30-50ft for utility lines/poles etc in most backyards...

  11. Hi Alan, could you possibly give us your thoughts on how the new features of the P4 such as collision avoidance, active track, etc. will affect commercial drone insurance rates & policies? It will be interesting to see where the insurance companies will react to this emerging technology? Or will rates actually go up, knowing people will certainly push & test the limits of this new technology and probably make a lot more "stupid decisions" when flying the P4 and are mistakenly thinking the technology will save or help them? I'm sure the technology will get even better over time? But I w
  12. Thanks for your input Alan! I will ask around and try out a few prices & ideas out and post my finding back on the forum... Thanks Again, Rob
  13. Hi Alan, Rob Buchanan here, I just wanted to say hello to you and all the other members out there and introduce myself! I must say Alan you have done a Fantastic job of putting all of this information together (website & forum) for us R/C flyers out there to use & enjoy!

Been flying a few different multi-rotor drones (Syma, UDI, HubSan) since last year and recently got a Phantom 3 Pro back a few months ago. I just recently started mentioning my drone services to real estate investors &am
