  1. Hi @ChrisV, Thank you for your service and welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! Have you flown a drone yet? Is there a particular application that you find interesting? Looking forward to your response! Best, - Chase
  2. Hi @Derek M., It is great to hear that you passed your exam, congratulations! We also want to welcome you to the UAV Coach Community Forum! Real estate and mapping are in demand drone applications that continue to see steady growth. What drone do you currently own? We have also have threads for real estate and mapping. Here are the links for those: https://community.uavcoach.com/forum/18-property-real-estate-marketing/ https://community.uavcoach.com/forum/13-3d-gis-land-surveying-mapping/ I hope this helps! - Chase
  3. Hi @Spitfire76, Thanks for sharing this, it is a very interesting UAV challenge. I am a senior at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and we had an assignment that was based off the Outback Joe Challenge. We had to choose a platform that we could customize. However, if I remember right our drone had to deliver a bottle of water and medical supplies instead of visual confirmation that Outback Joe was alive. It is cool to see this application outside of my school application. Thanks again for sharing this! Best, - Chase
  4. Hi @Dricus de Rooij, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! Conducting solar inspections with a drone is a great application. It appears to be a very fast growing and in-demand drone application. What drone platforms are you currently using to perform the inspections? If you also would not mind sharing, what challenges have you experienced so far when conducting these inspections? I look forward to your response! - Chase
  5. Hi @Jay Bhayani, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! Do you currently have a drone or are you just getting into the industry? If you have any questions always feel free to ask! Best, - Chase
  6. Hi @Oly, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! Flight training is a great way to get more comfortable with flying your drone. We actually offer hands-on flight train at various locations throughout the country. Here is a link for that if you are interested in learning more about that: https://uavcoach.com/drone-training/ Please let us know if you have any questions! - Chase
  7. Hi @JEBO, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! The Mavic 2 is a great choice, they are very capable for so many applications. Have you worked on any interesting videography projects yet? Feel free to share any of your footage in our Filmmaking/ Cinematography thread. Here is a link for that: https://community.uavcoach.com/forum/16-filmmaking-cinematography/ I hope this helps! - Chase
  8. Hi @Laurie S, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! There are so many opportunities in the drone industry, I am sure you will find something that interests you. Is there a particular drone application that you find interesting? Good luck with your studies and please always feel free to ask questions! Best, - Chase
  9. It's often challenging to find a legal, safe, and visually interesting location to fly your drone, especially in a densely populated area with one or more airports. After a round of comprehensive research, our team compiled a list of where to fly a drone in Kansas City. We also have this list of drone laws in Missouri that might be helpful. Where do you like to fly your drone in Kansas City? We welcome your comments/experiences below.
  10. Hi @Petah, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum and congratulations on becoming Part 107 Certified! Starting a drone service business is exciting and there is always something to be working on. What services are you planning to offer and what equipment will you be using? We have a Business Advice thread that is great for getting advice. Here is the link for that: https://community.uavcoach.com/forum/34-business-advice/ I hope this helps! - Chase
  11. Hi @Steve1235, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! You are correct, the industry is rapidly advancing and there are so many opportunities. There are many resources within the forum that will help get you started with learning about the drone industry. What area of the drone industry interests you the most? If you have any questions always feel free to ask! Best, - Chase
  12. Hi @Nguyen Thanh Lam, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! The drone industry is growing fast and there are so many opportunities. What are you looking to learn about in this industry? We are always happy to answer any questions you may have! Best, - Chase
  13. It's often challenging to find a legal, safe, and visually interesting location to fly your drone, especially in a densely populated area with one or more airports. After a round of comprehensive research, our team compiled a list of where to fly a drone in Cincinnati. We also have this list of drone laws in Ohio that might be helpful. Where do you like to fly your drone in Cincinnati? We welcome your comments/experiences below.
  14. Hi @Lincon, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum and congratulations on becoming Part 107 Certified! I reviewed the files you posted and that looks like an interesting project that covers a large area. Drones are not allowed to operate over 400 feet AGL for safety reasons. Manned aircraft (Except helicopters) are not allowed to operate below 500 feet AGL. This provides a buffer between drones and manned aircraft to avoid collisions. Atlanta is under Class B airspace and Atlanta is also one of the busiest airspace classes in the country. Flying up to 400 feet would depend on the region of airspace you are flying in. If you use an app like Airmap, you will see there is a grid over that area of controlled airspace. You will see numbers such as '0', '200', etc. These numbers indicate the altitude the FAA will allow authorization for. So, if you are flying in a grid area that says '200', you can only get authorization up to 200 feet AGL. There are sections of the Part 107 regulations that can be waived. Here is the FAA link that explains all of the waivable sections: https://www.faa.gov/uas/commercial_operators/part_107_waivers/ A drone can only fly above 400 feet if it is within 400 feet of a structure and does not exceed 400 feet above that structure. However, if doing this puts the drone into controlled airspace you will need prior authorization. Flying at 400 feet (If possible) should be more than enough altitude to capture your images. Even at 400 feet, pictures from a drone will have less detail because of how high the drone is. You would be surprised at how much a drone sensor can capture even at lower altitudes. Also, most drone software restricts the drone from getting anywhere near 2350 feet AGL. On DJI drones the max altitude is set to 500 meters which is about 1640 feet AGL. If you would like to post the airspace pictures with the grids from Airmap; I would be happy to help you understand the situation further. I hope this helps! - Chase
  15. Hi @LizImages, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! I have attached a link for a youtube video that walks you through how to get airspace authorization step-by-step in Airmap. The actual process begins at 5 minutes into the video. Please let us know if you need any more help. I hope this helps! - Chase
