That’s interesting. I’m sure you meant not be able to operate under part 107. There seems to be no FAR for drones over 55 lbs. I’ll have to check into that. I may just have to operate under part 133. Thanks for pointing that out. I thought maybe I would just need a waiver.
I am an 18,000 hour helicopter pilot. Many of the things we do, I see being done by drones in the future. Such as moving Christmas Trees, river surveys etc... so I have been looking to see if there is a company that builds drones that have a payload of 300 to 1000 pounds for the lift work. Also one that could autonomously survey a river taking video footage along the way. I would attempt to build my own if I can find a supplier of parts.
