    I have 2 days to begin studying for my exam. Wish me luck.

    lol 11:12 Happened to me yesterday! The neighbor came out and watched my drone as I shot a lot for another agent. I did not have my certification on me. However, I was following protocol and the cop was mad at the neighbor for wasting his time.

  3. mark ockwell on June 30, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    I fly and I am fully certified – The UK…. We have to register our drones every year which costs about $12 per drone – but our pilots license lasts for 5 years….

  4. Mesbah on June 30, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    So if I just wanna do it for fun then do I need to have any license ? Like what do I require to have it on me just to fly for fun? Thank you

  5. Wiitees on June 30, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    hold up, you said legally and ethically you’re supposed to have the license. Legally, yes. But ethically? Nothing about getting a drone license is an ethical decision

  6. Sun-Moon on June 30, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Wow this was very informative and no non-sense! Thank you! I been scratching my head forever tryna figure out how to go about doing this.

  7. davezgy1 on June 30, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    Stumbled upon this video, btw my name is the same as yours.

  8. Tiffany Backup on June 30, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    Hello, thanks so much for the video. Do you have insurance to operate and if so, does it cover you internationally? What would you recommend for recreational use?

  9. Jason Carmichael on June 30, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    The current price for the exam is $175. (October 2021)

  15. David Crisler on June 30, 2022 at 7:27 pm

  16. Alpha Gonzalez on June 30, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    Thanks for the video . I recently got my Drone license in Korea it is for drones upto 150 KG (330 pound ) It is the highest drone license in Korea I wonder what is the equivalent license in US ?

  20. Jaime Hernandez on June 30, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    What’s the best way to get hands on with a drone. And not breaking your first drone

  21. Overflow Media Productions on June 30, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    Very Helpful! Thank You!

  22. Designed Audio on June 30, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    From FAA website “Effective July 1, 2021, the fee to schedule for all FAA Airmen Knowledge Exams will be $175.” Additionally there is a $5 fee for registering the drone.

  23. Ajinkya Kolhe on June 30, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Thanks! Your video was so complete and I am glad I don’t have to ‘research’ through other videos.

    "yes wedding videographers…" dead.

  27. Steve00 Alt on June 30, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Im not into photography and only fly it as a hobby.

  28. Ibrahim S kamara on June 30, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Thanks for the piece. I really want to fly drones and be a certified pilot.

  29. Pokegemz on June 30, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    Great info – thank you so much

  30. Michael Superbacker on June 30, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    What blows my mind is that I can fly a paramotor with me on it up to 18,000 feet, without a license!!! But with a drone to go 400 feet, I need a license??? Makes sense right?

  31. TREVINCI FILMS on June 30, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    I passed my exam…how long does it take for the card to come in the mail?

  32. Test Flights on June 30, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    I’m also from Tampa, FL. Thank you very very much!

  33. Stephen Roberts on June 30, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    I think this would be an awesome business to start! But, I am not yet certified, nor own any drones/equipment. Yet. I think a nice spending spree is in order when I get my profit sharing bonus in late January.

  34. Stan Wallace on June 30, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Is there a difference between being certified and the 107 license?

  35. Ephraim Semo on June 30, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Quick fast and efficient video 💯thank you sir 👍

  36. Andy Atmosphere on June 30, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Glad I clicked on your video, straight forward and Awesome! Thank you.

  40. Summerlin Realtor and Drone Pilot on June 30, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Thank you David for this great video. Today, I took my exam and I thought I failed it. I walked out today with an 80%! This test is no joke! I saw a lot of questions on there today not from this video at all. Study, study and more study. Do not rely on practice exams or you will fail this test. This was the hardest exam I have ever taken. Learn sectional charts and airspace class. Most of my test was about that. I am a horrible test taker but all of the tests and study time paid off. I wish everyone the best of luck with this exam.

  41. Valentine Agbenu on June 30, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Watched your video 2 days ago , got excited then watched Andy’s video. Boom !! I passed with an 80% today. Big up to you for the inspiration and Andy for making it so simple.

  42. Cisco099 on June 30, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    This was a great video. Thanks for sharing man!

  43. DeVante Style on June 30, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Would you say this is still about accurate if I wanted to take the test this year ?

  44. Luis Velasquez on June 30, 2022 at 7:58 pm

  50. Tristan Scott on June 30, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    So what if you want to do that stuff free of charge and not make any money doing it? Just doing it to do it. No money involved.
