Flying drones legally is something I have been looking into for a long time. Recently I passed my FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate Test. I have been flying drones, mainly DJI drones since 2013 so I had some flight time going in to the testing. I wanted to share my experiences getting my FAA Part 107 license as well as demonstrate how I use drones in construction utilizing DroneDeploy and other software. I also used Drone Pilot Ground School (an online course) for my training. I passed the test, and I wanted to share that experience with you.

    Good video, I knew most of this and have actually parked my drone since getting monitized and this is a good reminder for me to knock this out over the winter. Want to use in videos next spring while fishing.

    Love your videos, not really into the drones but I do follow your Harley videos, and really enjoyed you speaking to the eight who got those bikes and gave their feedback to Harley. Keep up the good work PS I know you’re a friend of John Maxwell, does he do YouTube anymore because I haven’t seen him in a while or is he just on Patreon? Thanks and I do enjoy the variety on your channel, keep up the good work thanks again

    I don’t watch network TV. The only way to watch YouTube for me is on a big screen.

    The FAA has these 5 words β€œ in furtherance of a business β€œ. You must have part 107 if you make one penny with the drone. You should reach out to Ken Heron, he is a great drone resource. Also the FAA is going to require a hobby license soon.

    I’m on my iPad. 1080 is fine. But you could drop a 4K video every once in awhile.
