    Great Video 💯

    Glad the lady was polite in her questions and not harassing. She seemed genuinely interested, rather than attempting to interrogate.

    I looked up Litchi and there are a couple of apps by Litchi – for DJI Drones (w/an eye and some red around it) for 22.99 (IOS) and there is a bundle. Which one did you use? Thanks

    Dude this is awesome thanks for the tips! I have gotten my advanced certificate here in Canada and want to start out. The most im worried about is dealing with complaints XD You handled that person very well! 😀

  13. Tom Meny on July 4, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    You just blew my mind, homey! Studying for my Part 107 now, got a bootcamp yesterday

  14. S.J. Owens on July 4, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Man just finding this video, thanks for doing this! So is it that bad with drones being a negative for other folks? How often do I get harassed? What state, city? Thanks again

  15. Rick Monroe on July 4, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    What was that name of the app. Sheet or ?

  16. Andrew Schumacher on July 4, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    hey just subscribed. Got my 107 very recently. Hope I can hustle like this during Covid!

    Nooo, not a secret squirrel operation! 🤣
    I APPRECIATE YOU sharing! I literally just passed my exam today, so I am eager to apply and make income on the side! New sub!

    I’ve been on DB for over a year. Highest paying job was 100 for 2-2.5 hours work. DB is horrific.

  20. Kevin Klingsheim on July 4, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    What company do you work for? I live in Houston and I was wondering if the company you work for or similar I can find over here.

  21. Tron Alpha on July 4, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    I am looking at doing some parttime work with my drone. I am going to get my lic next year. Any time you can make a bit of profit,is good.

    Are you self insured for this work?

  23. SHERBie on July 4, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    So can you literally get paid to operate drones?

  24. ba00173 on July 4, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Cool, thanks for sharing ! BTW, nice Jeep advertisement between 11m40s and 11m55s… lol. I also own a Wrangler. Have a great holiday, cheers !

    QuickTrip no longer available on the App store.

    Just curious. About the privacy laws. Is this exempt because it is a legit business with no intent to do "surveillance? Because what if someone shows up in an aerial shot in their backyard behind a fence and sees the video on the MLS? I love your channel. Professional Land surveyor here that flies RC planes and just getting into drones. I may retire in 3.5 years and use tis to supplement my retirement. Would love to discuss more through e-mail. Insurance questions, etc.

  27. CMC on July 4, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    thank you brother, I just passed my exam and I definitely need a payday. This was super valuable thank you and god bless

  28. Tom Meny on July 4, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Those of you who are interested, make sure you have a "Phantom 4, Mavic 2 Pro or better" or they will not accept you. Even though other drones are listed on the app. I found out the expensive way.

  29. Roadtrippin' with Takacs on July 4, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    So, do you still like Drone Base? Do you still use it?

    I currently work in a steel mill. My current wages about 28 $29 I know I can do much better than then working in the steel mill if I become disciplined to fly my drone. My drone is a DJI mavic Air 2 for now

  32. Ed Ansary on July 5, 2021 at 12:03 am

    I got my license and I have a Mavic air 2

  33. Red Pill Success on July 5, 2021 at 12:04 am

    How long does it take to get paid, is it daily, weekly, bi-weekly?

  34. Brand Ex on July 5, 2021 at 12:06 am

    Very good information and well made video. Thanks.

  35. Randy Weber on July 5, 2021 at 12:06 am

    Im thinking of doing this for side money to go toward music equipment/ hobbies. A co-worker is selling a Mavic mini for $350 with 3 batteries and I’m thinking of going for it! Do you think the camera is good enough?

  36. Riley Meier on July 5, 2021 at 12:07 am

    would this be possible for a 14 yr old to do? bc I think this would be a good income for me

  37. SeaC Programmer on July 5, 2021 at 12:08 am

    How many Karens have called the police and gotten you killed for flying a drone ( lol )

  38. Preston Firmin on July 5, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Great video!

  39. Equilibrium on July 5, 2021 at 12:11 am

    Is it easy to fly and take pics how do you practice? I got my exam on Monday I’m also a realtor

  40. Lwazi Mabota on July 5, 2021 at 12:13 am

    Just passed my faa test at 17, very excited to get in this field 💯🙏🏿

  41. MASSECURITY on July 5, 2021 at 12:15 am

    If you spend around 5 to 10 minutes and you get 50 for it, that’s actually pretty good. Do they offer this in EU as well?

  42. Andy Anderson on July 5, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Can’t beat 300dls for basically part time work.i got 5 drones making extra cash with them sounds good.

  43. McKinnon Erario on July 5, 2021 at 12:18 am

    You still using dronebase? Still doing well?

  44. Tom Johnson on July 5, 2021 at 12:18 am

    Now if you only had a drone CAR that could get you to those jobs faster. B)

  45. fred coker on July 5, 2021 at 12:19 am

    I stumbled to your account with the guy calling the Po-Po on you..lol Im glad that I did. You are giving me information like this DroneBase website to make some kind of money to start with flying my drone. I still have to get my 107 but I know where to start now. Thanks man and good luck!!

  46. Drive The Lightning - All EV Future on July 5, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Excellent video! Thank you!

  47. Elsa Guerra on July 5, 2021 at 12:19 am

    I like to chat with you over the phone. Pm so I can pm my cell #

  48. The Westcoast Flyer on July 5, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Thanks for another great video, I needed this motivation. I think I commented on your video when the cop pulled up on you, that was crazy. Never heard of Drone Base till you mentioned it. Like you said may not be the most money you can make with a drone but it’s a start. Took my part 107 and didn’t pass the first time, I’m now motivated to take it again. Thanks again for the great video.

  49. Alberto Papi on July 5, 2021 at 12:20 am

    Greetings,
    Thank you for taking extra time from your assignment to show us how Drone Base works. It’s not bad to start and to get more experience for this type of business. It’s a thumps up!👍🏻
