Hi everyone,

I am new to this community, just bought my first drone, working on my part 107 test... In the meantime I'd like to register the drone... for some reason I'm not able to pass the very first step. I give my email address, then wait for the activation link and it never comes. I checked my spam box, asked for another link, contacted the faa help... no answer, no mail in the spam... I am not sure what's wrong. Anyone has any idea for me? 

 

Thanks

 

Claire

Hi @Claire Wright,

Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! Are you trying to register through the FAA website through the FAADroneZone portal? I ask this because there are other websites that advertise registration and they are not affiliated with the FAA. If you are registering through the FAA website it should have prompted you to create an account as the first step. 

I would recommend calling the FAA UAS helsdesk directly if you are trying to register through the FAA and cannot set up your account. Here is the link for their direct phone number and email: https://www.faa.gov/uas/contact_us/

I hope this helps!

@Chase Flynn | UAV Coach I got a mavic 2 pro. I intend to eventually fly under part 107 (working on the test now, between jobs), hopefully find a way to make a little bit of money. But I also intend to take pictures with it, climbing pictures more specifically, in places where I allowed to obviously.

Hi @Claire Wright

The Mavic 2 Pro is a great choice! I think you will really enjoy that drone and it will be great to travel with on your climbing trips. When you start taking pictures with your drone, feel free to share them over in our Aerial Photography thread: https://community.uavcoach.com/forum/28-aerial-photography/

Good luck with your Part 107 studies/exam and please feel free to ask any questions! 

Best, 

 - Chase

@Chase Flynn | UAV Coach thank you. I've been taking the full tests from the Drone pilot ground school training, it looks like I am ready.

I will post for sure. I need to practice, practice and practice. I've been lucky to take a first class with one of your guys (Elliott) and he's been helping since then. Thank you.
