  1. Hello! I am new to drones & am currently in the process of completing training (via Drone Pilot Ground School) to get my part 107 license. I will be using the drone commercially to do testing for the company I work for. Very excited to complete the training, & actually get started flying drones!
  2. I'm new to this community so here's brief intro. I teach GPS for GIS at a local community college where I include a drone section for the class. Lots of student interest! I obtained my part 107 certification this past summer and just got a DJI Mavic Pro 2. My prior background was a hydrographic surveyor for NOAA where I established geodetic survey marks. Please take a look at my post on direction bias. I haven't found any online info about this. Thanks!

  4. Hello everyone. My name is Peter J. Sabo. I live in Oklahoma City, OK. I've been interested in aviation and flying for too many years. I would like to learn more about this amazing and, semi-new venture of drones and the commercial end of it. I know there is a website called: Drone Pilot Ground School. I have investigated this program and it looks like it'll be up my area of interest. I know there are a wide range of UAS/drones available. I'm thinking of starting small and gradually graduating to a more advance set up. I look forward to becoming a commercial UAS/Drone pi
  5. Hello to all! I'm looking forward to learning as much as I can about the drone industry, and hoping to become a part of that industry someday using drones creatively in a unique business model. To say I'm starting on the ground would be an understatement, but I'm motivated and determined to learn as much as I can. Thanks for being here!
  6. Hello - My name is Jim Critchfield. I live in Maryland and I am just taking the first steps into the world of sUAS. I have always held an interest in aviation but through life’s mixture of “Not enough money” as a young man through “Not enough time” as I entered my chosen career, I was never able to pursue this interest. I retired three years ago and now find I have the right combination of time and opportunity to pursue this interest. I hope to obtain my FAA certification and generate a little income, a little enjoyment and new adventurers through drone/videography. Hoping to join a community
  7. Hello I’m new to UAV’s and wanted to introduce myself.
  8. Hello there! I recently bought a DJI Mavic Air after I absolutely fell in love with flying several "toy" drones. They were so much fun and I saw just how much potential they held in terms of content creation (video, photography). I finally pulled the trigger and bought the Air Fly More Combo and absolutely love it! Unfortunately, I now realize that, to get the most out of its 4k capabilites, I now need a better PC (the wife disagrees). The laptop and older "Home office" PC just don't cut it when it comes to 4k video editing. At the moment, it is purely for fun and to improve my skill
  9. Just got my first Drone a DJI spark and hopefully can learn how to fly it like a pro. Also I would be interested in drone repair also.
  10. Hello to anyone who opens posts by new members! I'm excited to get involved in this online community and read and learn as much as I can! There seems to be an endless fountain of information to learn on this technology and FAA regulations, and quite frankly its a bit overwhelming. I'm hoping this forum helps me collect information to organize the most relevant aspects of the industry. I plan on using my DJI Mavic Air and Parrot Bebop 2 for Real Estate, and in the future hopefully creating media content for marketing other company's products and services. Before I drone on and lose any of you I
  11. Have my first (beginner) drone and a flight simulator on my iPhone. Think I will eventually want to move from hobby to business arena as my strength allows. I’ve a condition that will not allow me to work full time anymore. But I can see myself offering freelance for real estate or surveying or inspection, etc. on a part time basis.
  12. Greetings, all; my first post, newbie to here as well as to drones. I continually read that DJI has customer service that rates somewhere between sub par and atrocious. I also read that even the Phantom 4 Pro can have issues that render it unusable, i.e., it stops flying or won't fly. And so my questions are, what do you DJI owners do when your drone needs service, and are there other drone manufacturers of high quality, professional level drones that bear investigating? Thanks so much.
  13. Hello all, Just wanted to stop by and say hi. I'm new to flying drones and recently purchased a dji spark to learn with. Would love to find or create a group to meet up and fly, learn, socialize. I'm in the suburbs of Chicago around plainfield/naperville/Joliet area. Would love to hear from some people who know of active groups or be interested in starting one up. Can't wait for this cold weather to be over so I can try my first outside flight, indoors is very limited to pretty much up and down.
