Hello Everyone! I've been reading posts in this forum for the past year or so. It's been a wealth of information and has brought some sanity to me in this ever-changing industry! As of Feb this year I'm 107 certified. Started out learning to fly manually with a micro drone practicing in indoors. After successfully hitting my wife one time two many in her head. Moved up to a Latrax Alias outdoors. It was the most stable under $100 mid size model and enabled me to build up my skills, (still have much to learn) confidence and above all situational awareness. Watched many of YouTube clips of Cassey Neistat and as much about this industry as humanly possible. I recently went to the LA international drone expo in Dec. Although not a big expo, I made some great connections and was able to benefit from the info presented in manageable portions.

My Dad was a Aviation enthusiast, retired USAF airframe mechanic and B-17 flight engineer and instructor. His legacy inspired me to find my passion with flying remote sUAS's and jumping in head first (or is it nose first?) in this amazing industry. I look forward to learning more from the experts and like minded souls. 

Thanks Alan and to Christian for putting up with my neophyte questions. The 107 test prep and aerial film editing courses were invaluable and are continually used for reference and clarification. 

Happy and Safe Flying!

Hey @BV Productions and welcome.  Wondering when your Dad worked on Forts.  My Dad (long gone now) was a bombardier on b-17's and flew 32 missions over Germany - and lived through it all! He was based in Poddington, England.
