  1. Thanks again R Martin. I appreciate all of your advice! This has been very helpful.

It will vary from project to project but some projects may be 2 miles of a road corridor or it may be a 20 acre cornfield. I also don't know if a 20mp camera will do. I don't know if will be necessary to fly our projects at 400ft AGL. I had assumed that we'd be flying most of our projects around 200ft AGL but I don't have any specific reason for that other than hearing other people fly at that height. I feel like a clearance of 90-100ft AGL would not be high enough. The thought has crossed my
