  1. Hi everyone, this is Sparkles and I'm based in NYC. I have a DJI Mavic Air and I'm very new to all of this, so I'm very excited to learn more from everyone here, and I'd love to get together to for group flying sessions if you guys do that!
  2. My name is Mark from NJ. I am a graphic artist with a 26 year background in the commercial printing industry. I am interested in learning as much as I can about the UAS industry with a focus on purchasing equipment, becoming certified and starting a new career. I have a lot of questions and would hope to get good advice from this forum. Thanks and I look forward to your comments. - MV
  3. Hi Everyone! I'm a student here studying for Part 107! Hope everyone's doing well : ) I'm interested in getting some feedback about my options for buying a drone with specific specs for a project I'm working on. OK so here it goes: Carrying capacity of up to 8-10 lbs Transmission distance at least 3 miles Ability to fly at least 6 miles roundtrip I have been looking at the DJI Matrice 200 & 600 but I'm sure there are alternatives out there...just don't know enough about all of the different manufacturers yet! I suppose a fixed wing UAV would also be an option. I really appreciate any help I can get as a newcomer here! Thanks!!
  4. My name is Mike Russell and I am the owner/president of UAS Fire Consulting LLC in central New Jersey. UAS Fire Consulting LLC originated from the results of my doctoral research on the perception of UAS use in fire departments in New Jersey. The primary function of the business is to assist organizations and agencies in the fire services and other public organizations with drone acquisition, training and policy development. I started my business a year ago with just me. It hasn't been easy but I've made it through the first year. I'm still a small operation but am making headway. I've just signed on a new partner who I've known for several years. Together we have 30+ years experience in both the fire services and law enforcement. In that time we have developed an extensive network in both industries. Collectively, my business partner and I have spoken at public safety symposiums, briefed first responders and law enforcement agencies at the largest infrastructure project taking place in the United States (the construction of the new Tappan Zee Bridge), have published a public policy text and trade magazine article respectively, and have prepared several students to take and pass the Part 107 exam. As well we are both veterans of the armed forces (US Army Reserve/Army National Guard and US Marine Corps). At this point, we would now like to bring on an RPIC to handle flying responsibilities. I'm Part 107 certified but I'd like to have someone who can talk the technical talk and explain the various UAVs, sensors, monitors, 3D mapping, and all of the engineering/technical details, etc. to our prospective customers who up until this point have mostly been members of fire departments and police departments, in addition to some commercial individuals which include landscape businesses. We are looking for someone who can do all of the things I mentioned above but maybe hasn't quite established himself/herself in the industry yet and is looking to work with a newer company. The prospective pilot would need to have ample flight time and a good working background on the technical details described. Our business has been approached by public safety and commercial organizations around the area and in a short time has built a positive reputation for its training, extensive knowledge, and customer service. Anyone out there interested in having a discussion about this opportunity? For now it would pretty much be on a part-time basis and there would have to be some flexibility with scheduling as we have to work around our customers' availability. That said, with some real effort and a good push maybe we could all turn this into something full-time. Take a look at and get in touch if this is something that appeals to you. Feel free to contact me through this thread or through the email provided on our website. An additional note is that we will also soon be doing business as Drone Flight Services. This will give us the avenue to provide a wider array of services to a broader market of customers. I look forward to hearing from you! Best Wishes, Mike
  5. Hi All! I am a professional photographer new to UAVs and I just bought my first drone, a DJI4. As I begin the learning curve of flying drones I realize the more I know the more I realize I don’t know! I’m hoping to increase my knowledge with this group and connect with other users. I photograph mostly portraits and events for families and corporate clients, but also have a commercial real estate client that has been asking their photo vendors if they are using drones. The demand is no doubt increasing for aerial photography. I plan on getting certified under the new Part 107 regulations and wondering how deep a knowledge of aviation I will need to pass the test. Any info in that regard or recommended study guides is appreciated. If interested, here is my portrait website: and gallery of real estate photography: Best Ken
  6. Hello, My name is Mike. I live in Rutherford, New Jersey and I work in Hoboken, New Jersey. I am new to the hobby. I have been flying a small indoor Quadcopter (Estes - Proto Z) for the last few months. I just pulled the trigger on my first FPV Racing quad. I purchased a Storm Racing QAV210, FrSky Taranis remote and FPV goggles. I am going all in on my new hobby! I look forward learning all I can about the sport, new rules/regulations/laws and possibly using this as a segway into a new career or business opportunity. I have also signed up for several meet up groups so that I can get out there and network with people who do this everyday.
  7. Hello, I'm looking for a school that would teach me how to build and fly drones professionally. Also would like to meet people who is already involved in the drone industry. I'm looking forward to meet my future colleague entrepreneurs.
