    Enjoyed your video. Appreciate you sharing your story. I just purchased my first drone in hope of using it for recreation, and real estate. Are you still in Florida?

  4. Griga92 on April 20, 2022 at 5:58 pm

    What drone would you recommended I see you’ve done quite a few projects. Which would you recommend and what are you using now if its not the same as when you started.

    I was wondering if you use litchi for your construction progression work, and how often would you go and take images, like twice a week or bi-weekly or something? I am wanting to pursue the progression industry and would like some basic information, I have two Phantom 4 pro I will be working with.

    Hi Taylor, what software did you use for the augmented reality? 3D software? Editing? Thanks. 🙂

  8. Chris Jones on April 20, 2022 at 6:03 pm

  9. Stella Davila on April 20, 2022 at 6:04 pm

    How did you find the work?

  10. Brandon on April 20, 2022 at 6:04 pm

    I’m in commercial real estate industry and brought a magic mini. I’m looking g to start with commercial projects but curious on where to start with price. Do these commercial companies want to have long term contracts or is it mainly a few week or so on going job? What price package for contracts? I’m in North FL

  11. Kim Willingham on April 20, 2022 at 6:04 pm

    Hi, love your videos and content. I’m wondering if you give presentations to groups on this technology? I think a number of young people could benefit from hearing about this topic.

  17. eliyamil117 on April 20, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    Love your story. I’m new to the drone industry and I want to learn more. Your video inspired me to go for more. Just subscribed to your channel

  18. bonezfromga on April 20, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    Great stuff! It was a pleasure hearing/watching your storeee!

  19. Allen Smith on April 20, 2022 at 6:14 pm

    How did you reach out to construction companies on your own to do work? random cold calls, and what is your pitch to them?

  20. IncrediKAD76 on April 20, 2022 at 6:19 pm

    Nice! Just what I needed👍 Subscribed!

    👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾🤙🏾❤ Excited to have found your content.

  22. Early Retirement on April 20, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    Nice showreel, I am creating a site to promote drone pilot showreels at and through social media so hope you can add this video.

  23. Flying High on April 20, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    You recommend DJI drones

  24. Stephen Hajovsky on April 20, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    Taylor! I will be retiring from teaching in the very near future and this was the very 1st video that I watched on my new possible 2nd career! Thanks for taking the time to make the video. I will be watching everything that I can get my hands on:) Great job!

  25. Wein Williams on April 20, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    Thanks for this. I live in the UK where rules are different but the same if you know what I mean. So inspiring to see you do your thang. I’m a photographer and have just purchased my first ‘starter’ drone, a DJI mini 2 and I’m loving it. Now I know what birds feel like. I’d like to incorporate the drone into my photography business as well as doing filming with it too. So i’ts great to see what opportunities exist in the drone space. Thanks again for the insight.

  26. Barney Weiss on April 20, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    Professional drone pilot? It’s a remote-controlled helicopter. Every nine-year-old kid in America can do this.

  27. James Thomas on April 20, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    Looking at becoming a drone pilot in Baltimore Dc area could you drop the link to up to date ways on how to get business started

  28. Benjamin Perez on April 20, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    Glad I found your channel. I’ve been wanting to become a drone pilot. Do you have a video about how you structure your pricing?

  29. Peter Jaycock on April 20, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    Well done, great video.

  30. Slappyjoe on April 20, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    Much appreciated video. Piloting a DJI drone is nothing like a normal drone. When I say normal I mean a drone not linked to china and gps enabled always. Dji doesnt teach you throttle control. Dji products do not make someone a professional UAV pilot. Yes I am a professional UAV pilot and do not use dji products.

  31. Seunawo Vlog on April 20, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    What type of drone is yours pls

  32. Rochelle Hughes on April 20, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    Please train me. I will pay you.

  33. Stan Senter on April 20, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    If you were re-starting out, again, would you get your 107 license first or a drone(mini 2) first and just fly? Then what would be your next step? Approaching potential companies/individuals in various industries or another direction? Thank you for your video, by the way.

  34. WARESPOWER on April 20, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    Interesting! The photographer end of it is very new to me! I have flown just about everything in R/c . I’m looking at the drones now, and thinking about building mine. Thanks for posting your video

  35. Been There on April 20, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    Thanks for this and all your videos. I’m just starting and your videos are a very informative.

  36. Victor cruz on April 20, 2022 at 6:37 pm

  43. Rene Ruiz on April 20, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Do you have any blanket SOP’s or pre-flight checklist? I just got my part 107 last week and flew drone in the military but civilian side is way different. I love your videos and great work so far! Definitely subscribed and hope to hear from you soon!

  44. Matthew Van Wyk on April 20, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    I’m a junior drone Pilot and keep on messing up flight folios and logbook, I wanna know if this is a common thing and what are the repercussions of getting a flight folio wrong if anybody knows

  45. broccolihart71 on April 20, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    You are EXACTLY who I was looking for on YouTube. I’m subscribing immediately.

  46. Billy Robinson on April 20, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    Is it to late for me to consider drones as a career. I’m 55 years old. I’m in good health.

  47. Kathy Goudeket on April 20, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    Very interesting! You are very impressive Taylor and I’m looking forward to learning more.

    Wonderful video, thank you! I’m trying to convince my son that this may be a good career path for him due to his skills and interests, and yours is the first video I showed him to pique interest because you are so personable and thorough. I’ll definitely be sharing your videos and just subscribed.
