'Ello! Name's Teri, been flying my Mavic Pro on and off for 3 years now (hurm, must check registration expiration date...) mostly getting landscape video of the surrounding Nevada desert and trying to figure out a way to use the automated features to follow me while riding my motorcycle (drooling over that Skydio 2). Was recently asked about some of the FAA regulations so figured since I needed to study up on those, might as well go all the way and get my Part 107 certificate. Passed the test this weekend with a 93%, now just waiting for TSA to realize they already know me. Anyway, huge thanks for the course, that really helped. Now to read through the forums to better understand all the rules and regs.
New to drones but have been performing Commercial Real Estate photography for over a decade in Nevada, Arizona, California, Washington and Alaska. Recently purchased a Phantom 3 Pro, and have been getting my 'feet wet' so to speak. Never had any type of aviation certification from the Feds, though back in the day, as an enlisted man, I had my Air Crew wings in the Navy. Also, never piloted a craft until now, but sure jumped/rappelled out of more than enough perfectly good craft to know what not to do, and we all spent our time playing the Flight Sims when they first came out. I want to add aerial photography of property to my arsenal. Would love to do bazillon $$$$ homes and make bank, but we know how small those odds are. My goal for the next 6 months, to prepare for the FAA test to get my commercial UAV license. In the interim would like to know as much about these craft as I can, and thought this might be an excellent resource. Who knows, maybe the training aspect will become a more viable, and less worrysome alternative, only time will tell.
