  1. Hi UAV coach community, I wanted firstly to personally extend my thanks to the administrators of the forum who have said it's okay for me to post here but please do speak up if you feel this is not appropriate here and I will move on. I am writing from https://dronecloud.io/ a new drone management platform focussed on the business of running a drone operation. Dronecloud is the direct product of 6 years of commercial drone operations. It is funded, designed and managed by drone operators. We are currently looking to spread the word and get as many people trialing the platform as poss
  2. I am very new to the drone game, even newer to the drone business game. If I am going to get my Part 107 license and want to make money, do I need to set up a business and get state and local licenses? Or am I basically covered in that regard by the Part 107. I heard that I can get the Part 107 license and then make money the next day.
  3. Anyone here have experience with event? They are coming thru Denver and am determining if it is worth the 3 days of time and money. Thank you
  4. Hi all. If you have discovered that the non-technical aspects of the commercial drone business are a major challenge, I have created a resource that should be a major benefit for you. The book "Success with Drones in Civil Engineering" is packed with case studies, lessons learned, business strategies & tactics, and interviews & insights from industry leaders. You'll get an accelerated introduction and overview of disciplined project management and how that can help you plan, execute, and deliver more accurate and effective results with your drone. You'll get a crash course (ha) on
  5. OK, so I have my Part 107 certificate and I have the Drone Pilot Ground School certificate, I must be finished with UAV Coach, right? Not so fast. I just finished the last of the BONUS interviews that are provided as part of the Drone Pilot Ground School. The information there is really incredible! There is a goldmine of knowledge and information in those interviews. So, for anyone who is taking this course or has completed the course and obtained their Part 107 certification, I think it is very important that you finish the course and listen to each one of the interviews. I've liste
  6. Hi all Could anyone point me towards examples of UAVs being used in the social sciences for educational purposes (ie, creation of learning content or for research projects)? We are from the Business faculty of a university, so interested in previous applications in this area as well as law, psychology, human geography, arts, etc Many thanks!
  7. Hey everyone, my name is Cody. I live in the Chicago area. My drone is a mavic pro. My drone-goals are two pronged. I'm looking for a place to collaborate and learn from as I create a successful aerial imaging solutions company. The other prong is to share and get feedback on the cool shots I capture. My background and passion are in photography, and through photography I've found a love to fly drones. I'll attach a shot from my trip to the Ozarks! Here's my website Can anyone point me in the best direction to learn about experiences with Thumbtack and/or DroneBase missions?
  8. Hey guys, I wish to project a question out here! Believe many will be searching for the same. Here is the one: How about cyber security solutions? Any idea about this? For months, I was planning to bring in the security features in place. But couldn't rely on a particular one. Can anyone list the pros and cons of cyber security solutions? I have heard that, it’s not much beneficial for the small businesses. Is it so? Any restrictions for it? I’m running a small business and I had plans to be more secure than ever before! But, all these doubts have pushed me into a

  11. Hi there, I recently read some articles about UAVs being used for the purpose of structural inspections of offshore oil platforms and the cargo tanks of ships. Having worked operationally in the maritime industry for the last 16 years, in both the offshore energy and merchant sectors, I was wondering if I can help any UAV professionals get started in these markets. There is definitely lot of room for UAV service and product development in the maritime industry, so depending on your needs, I can help you understand the maritime industry better and identify local opp
  12. Hi to all fellow drone enthusiasts;) I'm new to droning; i'm developer of alternative energy systems for a sustainable energy supply for everyone; solar and wind energy project developments require substantial amount of space; this space has to be mapped, georeferenced and topography imported into CAD for further processing (cut and fill, grading, foundation design, ...) Later on, o&m work has to be performed (pole inspection, powerlines inspection and thermal inspection of solar field, ...) I'm in the process of setting up business to provide development, design, and o&
  13. Alan Perlman asks new members to introduce themselves, and here I am. I am a Graduate of the University of Dubuque's Aviation program and Aviation Advisory Board Member for them. My full time job is with John Deere, and in agriculture, there are certainly growing opportunities evolving. I am also looking at business opportunities within the drone industry form ag to real estate, not necessarily US based. I am amazed at how drones help in managing crops from pest control to nutrient management and storm damage assessment. I see in California, Yamaha utilizes large RC helicopters to spray s
  14. I am selling my Drone Pilot Directory & Trades website. I am attaching full details if you are interested. Drone Trades For Sale.pdf
  15. Hello everyone, I am looking forward to joining with other drone owners who share my interest and passion for flying drones. My FAA test is tomorrow. After passing it and getting a Remote PIC Certificate, my next step is to develop a drone services business. Since I am so new to this, the type(s) of service to offer is still being researched and considered. Being a member of this group will give me a great resource to learn from the experiences of other members. Jim
  16. Hey again guys. The moment is finally here. We are obtaining our certifications and in search of jobs. Because this market is "new", in a sense, what is the "standard" or ball park pricing we are charging for different services. (Yes there are many). We can say it's based upon location, experience, demand. Yes those all play a role. However, at the moment it's hard to justify pricing. Simply because there isn't much in this industry just yet. For myself, I'm starting off shooting real estate and exteriors for builders. What did photographers charge who shot out of a heli
  17. Those of you who want to start or maneuver into a profitable business niche with your UAV, I want to share and recommend some wisdom from military history and innovative marketing professionals. Here is an excerpt from my latest blog article that I believe (and hope) will benefit you greatly: If you focus on time (speed and agility) and direct engagement with your target customers more than your particular drone model or software version, you'll be moving in the right direction. Combine that with guerrilla marketing tactics and you'll do it very cost-effectively too. If you want
  18. Okay, so you've practiced flying your drone and have your skills up to an acceptable level. You have a DJI Phantom Pro 3 or something similar that has the minimal pro video quality. What next? Business license? Website? UAV pilot license? (Depending on what they come up with in June) What things do you feel are necessary or you've found in your own experience that were helpful to you in getting your business up and running? Did you get a business loan? What did you have to go through for that process? I would love to see this thread grow into a sticky thread that people can keep adding
  19. I've been thinking about just doing mapping but then I thought about doing mapping and inspections or just mapping. I think one job will make money come slower but more than one will make it come faster. But there's some of the jobs that look difficult to do and I was just thinking about doing the ones that I think I can do. But if I just do mapping will that be a good source of income or will two drone jobs be better?
  20. Thanks for the invite. In the initial stages of setting up a aerial photography business. Looking forward to exchanging information and ideas. Paul

  22. Hello, My name is Marc Concialdi and I am interested in purchasing a drone and want to fly one for a business some day. I have my Pilot's license and instrument rating and have been in aviation for years. I have flown toy drones before, but nothing too serious. I would like to know, which drone would be the best for me to make money with? Are there drones out there that are diverse and can help me make money in a variety of areas? I'd like to purchase one so I can register it with the FAA and start flying to make money as soon as possible

  24. Hi, Alan, et al... Thanks for the information on the upcoming Model and 3D Mapping course! I have a question for you. I'm curious as to what you've heard concerning the FAA's ban on commercial use of drones. It has always seemed wrong to me that a teenager can fly the same flight plans that I fly using the same drone and take video and photos with no problem. However, I'm prohibited from flying the exact same route and drone if I make any money from the effort. It would be a little more reasonable if hobbyists were restricted more than commercial operators, such as, only
