  1. Hi @prisoner307, Thank you for sharing this video with us! I really enjoyed the shot with path through the trees and the wind turbines spinning off in the distance. The color correction was also very well done. - Chase
  2. Hi @Dmjohnston, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! To help get you started, I recommend reviewing the drone laws in the U.S. In order to operate your drone commercially, you will need to have an FAA Part 107 certification. You can learn more about that process on this page . Please let us know if you have any questions! - Chase

  7. Hi @Caryboy, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! Taking the Part 107 exam is not hard if you study and put the work in.

  9. Hi @Ras Marcus, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! These are really cool, your 1st and third image have a great angle with sun reflection aligning with the pier. When I am taking sunrise or sunset pictures, I like to use the PolarPro ND4 filter. With the smoke in the sky, there is going to be more noise if you try increasing the exposure of the sky. I would use a mask to edit the sky as a separate layer and increase the highlights, this make the sun brighter and add more light to the sky. Just be sure not to increase the highlights too much where it washes out the sun. To dea

  12. @Gravity FriendlyThank you, I appreciate the feedback!
  13. Hi @Dfd, Thank you for sharing your concerns with location #4. Looking at both AirMap and the FAA Visual Map again, this area is still a legal flying location. Although the Selfridge National Guard Base is nearby, it is not directly over Point Huron. Looking on AirMap and the FAA Visual map you will see a grid over the airspace with numbers that vary. Directly over the park and out over the lake you will see the numbers vary from 100 to 300 feet AGL. This means that you can request authorization to fly in that specific grid of airspace up to but not over the specified altitud
  14. Hi @Megan, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! The weight of the drone determines if it needs registered. You can find all of the drone laws for a hobbyist on this page: https://uavcoach.com/drone-laws-in-united-states-of-america/ There are many apps out there like AirMap that will tell you what kind of airspace you are in and it makes the process of knowing where to fly and where not to fly really easy. Using a drone to capture abandoned locations is a great way to get a new perspective. I have seen others use drones for exploring abandoned places and it always looks awesome
  15. Hi @Larry in Palm Springs, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! I recommend having a look at our U.S.A drone laws page. You will find everything you need on that page. Please let me know if you have any questions! https://uavcoach.com/drone-laws-in-united-states-of-america/ Best, Chase
