  1. Hey guys! My name is Josh and live in the L.A/ Santa Monica area. I just bought a mavic air and have already taken it on a handful of trips... im getting pretty good with quickshots and am OK at flying manually but am looking to improve / hone my skills. Would love to meet other pilots in the area. I would also be up for taking some private 1 on 1 lessons with a fellow experienced pilot who has experience with the mavic air and can help me be the ninja of the skies that i know i am destined to be ! Please feel free to DM me
  2. Greetings Airmen, I am just getting started with Part 107 training and can't wait to start flying. My dilemma is this: which drone to start with? I'm getting into this as a fun way to reignite my long dormant interest in photography. So you can understand why I would be interested in a "prosumer" level drone. 4K video and high end photo quality are important to me. But having never flown a drone before I am worried about crashing my new $2K-$4K investment on my first day out (I do intend to get some flight training). So, when I heard about the new Mavic Air I was intrigued. Awesome video capabilities and easy to fly. Combined with 12 meg pixel stills this would seem to be the perfect platform to get started with. And with a price point starting at around $800.00 the inevitable first crash is not as scary. Having said that, I should also mention that I have aspirations to do some limited work with my drone in the photography, inspection, mapping and possibly agricultural fields whenever possible. Because of that, I am also very interested in the release of the Typhoon H Plus this summer. It checks off everything on my "want" list and it provides the ability to upgrade to better cameras. For that reason alone I find the H Plus more desirable than the P4Pro which it seems to be in direct competition with. So, there's my dilemma. Affordable and easy for a beginner to fly with the Air, or a more substantial investment that provides better camera capabilities but is more difficult for a new pilot to fly in the H Plus? input please.
  3. Hello, My name is Jorge, I'm Commercial Drone Pilot, working in a Telecom Company, currently flying in Georgia for Cellphone Towers inspection, most of the time using M600P with Z30 Camera. My Team is planing to start flying in Los Angeles area, and we are not sure the differences with the Regulations and requirements between Georgia and California. So I will appreciate if this community can help me out to get more detailed information about flying in Los Angeles area. By the way, I got the Part 107 Certificate back in January 2017 Thanks to DronePilot Ground School Team. Here is a Proof of the BEST UAV COACH in the Drone Industry I'm excited to start flying in Los Angeles. Thanks in Advance for all the Support! Happy flying! Sincerely Jorge Luengo

    Hi

    Well, I’ve never flown ANY kind of a drone before, but after hurting my back working as a lineman, I’ve been really struggling to figure out what to do next, and more importantly going forward. I figure drones aren’t a fad and the more I think about it, the more I feel like the possibilities are almost endless as far as what they can be used for. I’m seriously considering going forward with training from the “ground up” if you will. (I put zero thought into that pun) lol. So that’s about it. Any info is greatly appreciated.
  5. What are some recommendations of drones you would suggest for the most green drone enthusiasts? Considering price, function, ease of ability to learn etc. Having NEVER flown a drone, I’m clueless ass to where to start. Thanks for any insight.
  6. Hello, My name is Jillian, an Architectural Designer at Urban Architecture Lab in Los Angeles. I have 7 or so years of experience in the CGI industry; rendering vehicles, airplanes, shoes, and most recently new mixed-use buildings in Los Angeles. I have begun to fly a Phantom 4 Pro for our proposed sites. Rendering our 3D building designs on top of the drone footage, camera tracked and composited in After Effects. (I have one example linked in the gallery. Yes, the building flickers - low render settings due to time constraints. (one week delivery) Typical right. I'll re-render it someday. I'm excited to peruse through this community's vault of work. (Especially the gorgeous photography / retouching examples.) Thank you for the warm welcome. Happy flying! Sincerely Jillian Cece
  7. Hi Everyone, Just completed the Drone Pilot Ground School course and passed the Part 107 test. I mostly fly a drone for my travel YouTube channels. However, I do want to start exploring more commercial work with drones and am even thinking of learning more about modeling and mapping. Right now, I am just flying a DJI Spark, but I do want to eventually look to purchase a more "professional" drone for commercial work. I figured I should probably figure out what direction I want to go (in terms of UAS work) before purchasing a new drone. Looking forward to being a member of this community! Thanks, Ernest
  8. Hi from Los Angeles area. New to drones. Looking forward to learning the in and outs of the industry. First purchased the Yuneec Breeze, then the dji mavic. Looking to use on mission trips, personal use.
  9. Looking a private coach to teach basic, intermediate and advanced drone flying skills. There are various workshops listed on line but they are either at bad times or the focus primarily on the part 107 certification test. I want to develop my skills as a pilot, and a private coach might be quicker than reviewing YouTube videos and practicing on my own. I live in Long Beach, CA about 25 miles south of LA.
  10. Hello UAV Coach Forum, I've been reading the forums for a while now and have benefited greatly from the information. Received my 1st airspace authorization a couple weeks to operate in Class D Airspace near Santa Monica Airport and have been ramping up my real estate work. Looking to learn more about 3d mapping and different drone applications for architecture, real estate and construction industries. I currently work full time for a real estate agency doing all their videos - (Would love any feedback) Big thanks to Alan and everyone at UAV coach for cultivating such a helpful community. Cheers! Cameron
  11. I should say no jobs for older people. That is unless you are US President or a Senator. Used to be in corporate management but thats no longer possible and I need cash. I have been looking for a small business that would suit my interests and keep me involved and this seems to have potential. By the way Im not that old I'm 64 and fit.
  12. Hi everyone my name is Kenneth Davila, I bought my phantom 4 back in September, its been a great investment not just for recreational purposes but also from a technical perspective. Its really opened me up to the technicalities involved in capturing great imagery and video. I am looking to learn more from more experienced photographers, videographers and phantom pilots. I have registered my drone with the FAA. I am certified in multi-media editing, so I am looking to take this to a 107 cert so I can do this as a side gig. Any recommendations to resources or meetups please don't hesitate to share. Happy droning everyone!
  13. I'm looking for great (legal) open spaces to practice. Any recommendations?!
