    Thanks for the information David, hopefully getting this will help my small business offer a new service.

  2. moe s on February 23, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    How many questions I’m not sure if you said it and I just missed the information
    much thanks for the informative video

  3. RYAN AND ANDREA on February 23, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    Thank you for this, have to take this now for my work to shoot the car dealerships! This was a great first introduction to it!

  4. D-Man Studios on February 23, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    is there a drug test involved?

  5. Jonathan Pajak on February 23, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    Doing this as soon as the Corona goes away!

  6. Andrea Zaniboni on February 23, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    Post more drone content!!

  7. Lab University Performance Specialists on February 23, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Very informative👍🏽

  8. Noe Hernandez Vlog on February 23, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    Bro this is an awesome video really made me understand on how to get certified, and it’s awesome how we both in the same home town, Tampa Bay bro

  9. Paul Hendershott on February 23, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    The FAA is really cracking down on Realtors taking drone video and pictures, even for their own property listings. It is a $4000 to $10,600 Minimum fine against the Real Estate Agent AND their Managing Broker/Owner. Anything Real Estate is automatically considered in "Furtherance of a Business" by the FAA and they are NOT fooling around anymore. I am a Part 91 Private Pilot, Part 107 Commercial Drone operator, and a Broker/Owner of a Chicago Real Estate company, so I have seen the recent crackdowns – no playing around anymore. Funny your take on the Sectional Maps! 🙂

  10. Rexarthur Ramos on February 23, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    No mention of iacra and ftn?

  11. Jim Prpich on February 23, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Great video!! I bought a MAV Air 2. My first drone. I took a drone course A year ago But never followed through getting the RPL. Now I definitely will.

  12. Jason on February 23, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    I really appreciate this video and how you explained the process. Thanks, def going to pursue this.

  13. The Pseudo Outdoorsman on February 23, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    This video was extremely helpful, thank you! I’m stressing less about this now and plan to start working towards the license soon!

  14. furonwarrior on February 23, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    2:24 Not true. Anyone can request permission from Air Traffic Control through apps on your phone like what I use: AirMap. It can tell you current events and if where you want to fly will require permission.
    Unfortunately, the FAA is applying more restrictions… can’t renew your registration this year unless you passed a knowledge exam which is what the Part 107 license is. So, you won’t be able to fly legally when flying any UAV above 0.55lbs unless you pass the knowledge exam… and more rules will be in place like Remote ID….

  15. Seminight 7 on February 23, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Thanks David, this is was very helpful.

  16. Julius S DeLaCruz on February 23, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Thank you! That was so informative. Do you have a video for people specifically looking to fly recreationally?

  17. Mr Dinomict on February 23, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    in Malaysia you need to pay for 60 dollar for 3 month to fly your drone LOL

  18. lobbyrobby on February 23, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    Does that card get you all the ladies? 🤔

  19. Adventures with Redbeard on February 23, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Thanks for the info! I’m wanting to add aerial video to my YouTube channel and wasn’t sure where to start. Now I know.

  20. Stlshotyme page on February 23, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Good video helped me with a few of my questions, and I’m gratefully thankful for your expertise my friend! Thanx

  21. Richard Butterfoss on February 23, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Have a ham license. I am a movie Producer. “Room 9” used drone scenes. Was uncomfortable because I didn’t have one. We used a drone pilot. RWB

  22. Bobby Flores on February 23, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    Super helpful! I’ve been thinking about getting a drone for my construction business and this cleared up questions about getting a license!

  23. Eric Bravo on February 23, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Great informative video 👍🏼. Do you have to produce legal documentation to them when applying? I’ve lost mine and working now to get it back.. All I have immediately is my driver’s license. 🤦🏻‍♂️

  24. LST PRO on February 23, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    great video, just got a drone getting license soon! what app do you suggest for that laanc stuff?

  25. ReaganVFilms on February 23, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    To be fair as a 13 year old who wants to fly his drone for his church… I wonder why they won’t allow ages down to 14 years old rather than 16, like we are getting younger filmmakers here hello faa, they should allow the age to be lower towards the part 107 license thing.

  26. Arrowhead Aventures & Treasures on February 23, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    WE just started flying drones and no we don’t have a license YET! 😬

  27. Allwonkyvids on February 23, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    The Tampa Bay area is a great place to drone. I’m new to the hobby and I think I should get certification before I spend good money on a quality drone. Are there spots around St Pete that you know of where we can fly our drones?

  28. Randy Valimont on February 23, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    Thanks! Studying for my test now. Didn’t know about LAANC, that’s kewl. Much faster. Very surprised the government allowed anything that might help cut through a little red tape.

  29. Yasodini Indrajith on February 23, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Very much enjoyed it, David

  30. Zorena on February 23, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Awesome video! Just found your channel thanks to the algorithm and I love it! Big shout out from Tampa, FL!!

  31. Vitino Solano on February 23, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Phuck the police and neighbors, I’m flying rouge since you mentioned there’s no drone swat team lol. I’ll be working for the cartels and shipping keys 🤣😂. Fastest way to a 100k

  32. Joseph Burton on February 23, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    My buddy said it’s almost identical to his private pilot license test.

  33. Andrea Zaniboni on February 23, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Thanks for posting I’m also local to Tampa

  34. Zanda Kaskieva on February 23, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Thank you for the video and the tips. It was vey helpful and positive.

  35. David R.S. on February 23, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    THANK YOU!

  36. EZJ on February 23, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Great video bro, thanks for the lesson! I love your intro… did you make it yourself?

  37. Nikolaus Wijngard on February 23, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Thanks David, good video.

  38. Da Vinci Home LLC on February 24, 2021 at 12:04 am

    Could you not use a mini to drone the stadium? I’m sure this is an asshole question. But I’m still curious.

  39. broccolihart71 on February 24, 2021 at 12:04 am

    Thank you

  40. furonwarrior on February 24, 2021 at 12:06 am

    My recommendation is to get an amateur radio license. You’ll need a higher grade to pass, but the exam is very easy, can be completely free and you get to enjoy a wonderful new hobby filled with Elmers. 😉

  41. Royce Cedrick Bulado on February 24, 2021 at 12:06 am

    Here in the Philippines drone license is freaking expensive at the price of $200 you will get your license😑🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

  42. ConnorFXDB on February 24, 2021 at 12:07 am

    my man! Thank you for the video! Well thought out and clear information tossed out our way! Just ordered a drone for the channel as well as for a new RE business. This answered all and any questions I had! Cheers! Liked and subscribed!

  43. Christopher Gibson on February 24, 2021 at 12:07 am

    I am interested in getting certified but have been turned off with the amount of prep since this is just an (unpaid) hobby for me. However, this video was very helpful. Thank you.

  44. The Naborhood on February 24, 2021 at 12:09 am

    Thank you for this video! Definitely going to follow through and get the license. ✌🏽

  45. MTF on February 24, 2021 at 12:11 am

    8 to 10 weeks?? Thanks a lot 😭

  46. michael A on February 24, 2021 at 12:11 am

    I recently bought a drone, and finding any bit of information to get Part 107 is a little hard. I googled and didn’t find much info. Im glad I found the tool to find a testing site in my area. Turns out, the place that came up when I googled does do testing for general public ( I live by an air base) . So it makes sense now, thanks for helping me clear that up! Ill deff be looking into the video you recommended to study

  47. Operation Repair on February 24, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Great video!

  48. David Bell on February 24, 2021 at 12:14 am

    So piss off you stupid license luck mate it’s a piss off

  49. Big Red on February 24, 2021 at 12:15 am

    I got 51% going str8 on practices test first up with no study or study guide

  50. Eric Scheid on February 24, 2021 at 12:16 am

    If you drone is under 250Grams DJI Mini 2 you don’t need to register it, right?
