  1. Just saw this — Haven't listened yet but plan to. Well said, @Av8Chuck. DroneBase wasn't purchased by PrecisionHawk, but you're right about, not sure about the other one that was bought. I remember two.
  2. I don't have time to read this entire thread, I've kind of avoided it but its longevity kind of indicates those that believed much of the hype of these sorts of companies and those that didn't. It's as important to point out what's not working in this industry as it is to point out what is. Also, keep in mind that and Dronebase (I think) were purchased by PrecisionHawk. This was part of a $100M series-D funding, this added to an already great story for investors. It has little to do with the quality of their products or services. When these types of M/A take pla
  3. Yep it is a jungle out there. My best day on Drone Base was $500 or so. Driving from one end of the county to another. That was months ago and have not seen a mission posted in my area in over months. Have never been able to crack the yet since it is by bid. Ditto on all the comments of unlicensed operators out there. Without enforcement it will continue to get worse. As L&L Drone Views said, the uberdrone models are normalizing the service rates. We are subcontractors to subcontractors in those models. I also agree that drone pilots should form local associations t
  4. Hello All, I'm happy to share and do so based upon my personal experience with both entities...Please be mindful that my experience with said entiteis just may be an exception... Presison Hawk in my opinion is only interested in raising investment money to acquire small potential startups to increase their product line and company size for an enventual buyout... ....While they do provide you with leads when their insurance clients need damage inspections, they allow and support a strict inflexible appointment schedule and have provided no (reply) communication to inquires re sam
  5. Hi there @SCPdrone, sorry to hear about your experience. Don't take this the wrong way, but it sounds like you had some unrealistic expectations around them 110% sending you business as soon as you sign up. Unfortunately that's not where the industry is at right now — of the dozens of sites out there sending folks business, Dronebase is one of the best. So is, where you bid on projects alongside others, similar to Thumbtack. There's more listed over here: I signed up with Dronebase over a year ago and
  6. Hey everyone! I have been doing some research on drone marketplaces and was curious what some of you who have had experience operating and selling your services, think of the top marketplaces out there. I have only recently purchased a Mavic Pro and am gearing up to get P107 certified soon. I've been looking at Dronebase,, and SkyTango seems to have a pretty cool feature to help people see where pilots are visually. I ask because the company I work for is developing a new drone marketplace and it would be super helpful to get any feedback to be sure they're creating so
  7. I agree with a lot of the concern about some of the negativity but also with @L&L DRONE VIEWS to stay positive and it is still early. Dronebase and are tough because folks are willing to do that work for so cheap (more of a concern on IMO). Also, I know a lot of people locally who fly commercially without a license and they are canabilizing some of the business as they are willing to do it cheaper than I ever would. I would stick to your pricing and show the quality of your work. That is what I have done with my repeat clients and it has paid off. Do I make
  8. Is this for I completed the questionnaire. And as much of my profile as it would let me. My Account shows “Pending Review” and that I must complete my profile before it can be approved. Except I CAN’T complete it because it is in review? ??????????? I have also sent several emails with no response.
  9. DroneBase and seem to be the most active, haven't heard much from those other links recently.
  10. Hello AV8Chuck and all... ....While I appreciate you reaching out, I must apopogize because I'm not sure I really have anything to contribute at present....If the question is "How's Business"?....we're doin OK...Still writing black ink but I'm just a one horse operation...if the number of employees did equate to success, I'd be failing!... ....Being an "Old Schooler" I've already put in 30+ years (managing over a dozen employees in the process) so I've never really looked toward expansion and the responsibilities and effort that goes with it in this new start up....I just wanted a f
  11. I'm just learning and found and and those are all marketplaces to post your services. I'm thinking of creating one, that's why I got on here
  12. Getting a drone pilot marketplace started. Just learned about and now owned by PrecisionHawk focused on the US. Looking for suggestions about starting a drone pilot marketplace. Where do pilots go to get work? And why there? What do you like / dislike about the current marketplace? Would it help to make a blockchain dapp or AI instead of a regular website? Would partnering to promote schools help get the word out for pilots to signup? Any advice would be appreciated on getting started.
  13. Good Afternoon Everyone, I recently launch a digital marketing agency that focuses solely on the golfing industry. One of the services I offer is hole-by-hole guided tours. I'm looking for an individual/team that lives in South Florida (Atlantic side of the state) to do contract work as part of my team. I posted this job on and was overwhelmed with the responses from all over the country. I unfortunately was not specific about the location of the individual/team, so I'm hoping to make that clear here, I just want Florida based licensed UAV/Drone operators. I really appre
  14. It's been less than expected, and clients ideas of what things should cost are entirely way too low. I am apart of Dronebase and and it's insane. On I have seen multiple people requesting commercial photos/video 1-3 min for $150. And what's more insane is that there are 15 bids on it! In any case I do believe my business will eventually grow, but I know its going to take a lot of work to develop it.
  15. Okay, I can confirm I tried these guys for three months and as expected nothing, no job (I admit I'm a risk taker). I can't say I'm surprised seeing that I've been on for a year. has been around way longer than FlyGuys and I've been getting notification on jobs in most major cities in California. The number of jobs is low, even for major cities, even on Droners which has the most exposure. So if jobs are scarce on Droners they'll be even more scarce anywhere else. And when the jobs do come up, it's a feeding frenzy so you now you've got a bunch of guys low balling, de
  16. Realizing that all my opinion and $5 dollars will buy you is a latte at Star Bucks, I am truly concerned....I can certainly understand an appreciate that there are reliable, honest, hard working folks out there who want a chance to perhaps capture the future or realize a passion for flight, photography even editing but to provide services for an insurance company at what has to be considered minimum wage (regardless of volume) is a danger to all pilots and the industry in general.... ...It sends a message to these companies that there is an over abundance of pilots who perhaps do not kno
