  1. Hi @Ashish Mv, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! You can find the drone laws for India on this page. I hope this helps! - Chase
  2. Hi @Brian Holley, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! I too really enjoy aerial images, they just offer a really interesting perspective and have so many applications. I know many people do not like looking at sectional charts, but once you understand them I think they are fascinating to look at. Just seeing the complexity of the airspace and all the systems that must work correctly in order for the NAS to run smoothly is really interesting to see. Best, Chase
  3. Hi @InfraredAerial, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! The Matrice 210 V2 looks like an incredible aircraft, how has your experience been with it so far? Also if you do not mind sharing, how has business been so far? Looking forward to your response! - Chase
  4. Hi @digimatic, While we do not have any 'Where to Fly' guides for other countries, we do have a U.K. 'Drone Laws' guide that you may be interested in. I hope this helps! Chase
  5. Hi @nicortech, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! It is great to see that you have certifications in multiple countries. It's is also a good sign that more countries are developing more clear regulatory frameworks around drone operations. Do you operate in one country in particular more often than the others? How has business been so far? Looking forward to your response! - Chase
  6. Hi @Mdcanon, Thanks for posting your questions and welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! This is a commonly asked question as there many people concerned about drones flying over their property. However, as a drone pilot myself, I can say most drone pilots are not there to spy or anything like that. They are simply passing through to get to where they are going. The National Airspace System is owned by the federal government, only the the Federal Aviation Administration has jurisdiction over the NAS. Legally a drone can fly over your property as you do not own the airspace above your property. I hope this helps! Chase
  7. Hi @Drekko, Thanks for sharing your video and welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! Great job on the video, I really enjoyed watching it. Are you a recreational drone pilot or are you looking to get into the commercial side of the industry? Best, Chase
  8. Hi @JohnJClark, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum and congratulations on getting your first drone! We have a 'How to Fly a Drone' guide that you may be interested in checking out. It is a very detailed guide that should help get you started. As far as apps go, I would recommend AirMap which is used for reviewing the airspace around you to check if it is legal for you to fly. Another great app is UAV Forecast which will tell you if its safe to fly based on the current weather conditions. My favorite feature is the ability to see the wind speeds at various levels of altitude. Please let me know if you have any questions! - Chase
  9. Hi @JohnJClark, Thanks, I really appreciate the feedback! It was a really cool experience and one I will never forget. Walking around that house was like stepping back in time. When I first started flying my drone I did the same thing. Started flying around the house and then went to the nearby high school that has open fields to practice. I would recommend flying in large open areas as you get use to flying your drone. Before you know it, you will be doing risky shots like flying through trees and over water (those are always a good time). Please let me know if you have any questions about anything! Best, - Chase
  10. Hi @Jason Kovacs, It is great to hear that you have found the forum to be a valuable resource over the years! It sounds like you have a very interesting career and it is very cool to see that you have been integrating drone technology into you operations. What drones are in your fleet and have you noticed a difference in project efficiency/accuracy? Looking forward to your response! - Chase
  11. Hi @KonaGuy22, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum and congratulations on becoming Part 107 certified! There are many opportunities in the drone industry, which can make it overwhelming when deciding on which path is the right one. You may be interested in checking out our ‘UAV/Drone Jobs’ Guide Please let us know if you have any questions! - Chase
  12. Hi @Steve Bruckshaw, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! You may be interested in checking out our United Kingdom ‘Drone Laws’ page for more information regarding commercial certification requirements. Best of luck with your certification! - Chase
  13. Hi @Trailbrake, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! I agree with you, it is so easy to get hooked on drones. I remember the first time I saw a YouTube video that had drone footage in it, and I knew I had to have one. Those smaller drones can be a lot of fun to fly and a great way to learn how to fly a drone. They may be hard to control sometimes, but that just adds to the fun and adds the the experience. In the U.S., any drone that weighs 0.55 lbs or above must be registered with the FAA. If you are looking to understand more about FAA regulations, feel free to check out our United States of America ‘Drone Laws’ page. I hope this helps! - Chase
