  1. Hi @Big Al, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! I am also from the Mid-West, it can be tough to fly here sometimes with the crazy weather, but I am sure you are aware of that. Looking forward to see what you bring to the forum! Best, - Chase
  2. Hi @Stephen2727, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! What drone did you end up purchasing? Best, - Chase
  3. Hi @Sethjacobovitch, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! The Evo series is looking to be a very promising line of drones. We will actually be adding some of these models in the coming weeks. Thanks for your interest! Best, - Chase
  4. Hi @Rudi, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! You can find all of our flight training locations here: https://uavcoach.com/drone-training/ I hope this helps! - Chase
  5. Hi @Wings22, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! If you are having a hard time finding interesting and legal flying locations, check out our 'Where to Fly' pages. Here are the pages we have for Florida. I hope this helps! - Chase
  6. Hi @scootny99, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum, Holy Stone makes some great drones! Although I do not have any flight recommendations for Danbury, we do have a 'Where to Fly' Hartford CT page that you may be interested in. Best, - Chase
  7. Hi @Nidp, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! I think you will be very happy with your Mavic Air 2. DJI makes some great drones. Will you be using the drone for recreation or are you looking to use it for a commercial purpose? Best, - Chase
  8. Hi @Vincent55, Congrats on the first drone flight and welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! Holy Stone makes some great drones, let us know how you like it as you continue to log more flights. Best, Chase
  9. Hi @Caseyqli, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! Nice pick on the drone, the new Mavic Air 2 looks incredible! As a recreational drone pilot you will not need any certification to fly your drone. The Part 107 certification is designed for drone pilots who want to use their drone for commercial work. You will just need to register your drone with the FAA on this website: https://faadronezone.faa.gov/#/ . If you are interested in learning how to fly your drone, we specialize in flight training with DJI drones. We have expert flight instructors in various cities throughout the United States. You can find more info on that here: https://uavcoach.com/drone-training/ I hope this helps! - Chase
  10. Hi @Yanik, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! The Mavic Mini is a great starter drone and it is packed with a lot of features for the price. I am sure that you will get some great drone footage in Canada. Feel free to share any aerial footage in our 'Aerial Photography' and 'Filmmaking/Cinematography' threads. Best, - Chase
  11. Hi @Twospot, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! I have heard great things about that drone, so I think you will be happy with your choice. Always feel free to ask us any questions! Best, - Chase
  12. Hi @MacColl, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! There are a lot of opportunities out in the drone industry, there are companies who do hire drone pilots. However, I would say the majority of drone pilots are running their own business. I would say if you are interested in starting a business and choosing the projects that you work on, then you may not want to work for a company. However, if running a business does not interest you, then I would suggest looking for a company hiring Part 107 pilots. Many drone services hire a network of drone pilots throughout the country so they can offer their services nationwide. If you are interested in the different opportunities, I recommend taking a look at our 'Drone Jobs' guide. I hope this helps! Best, - Chase

He’s had a long, successful career that includes work in corporate marketing and running his own production consulting company. In the last several years Roger has turned his creative energies toward wildlife photography and videography, creating an impressive portfolio of work showcasing nature around the world.
