How I Fly Drones For a Living (And You Can Too)

How I Fly Drones For a Living (And You Can Too)

Today we’re taking a look at how I’m able to fly drones for a living and how you can do it too!
I’m sharing all of my income streams, together with some other ways to make good money on the side that I haven’t explored yet. For the purpose of the video I decided to not disclose the exact amount I’ve made in 2021, as I don’t feel like it will contribute to anything besides bragging to you guys, which is not the point of the video. Just know there’s plenty of money to be made, plenty of opportunities for all of us and if you give 110% you can certainly make a great living out of drones.
Good luck!

    What about shutter stock? Do you have income from them?

  4. Plain Lazy on January 6, 2022 at 12:52 pm

    I’m starting my first company this year. Local filming, but mostly rally, drift, motocross and so on. Clients with huge ego and deep pockets πŸ˜€ Also licensing unused clips. It’s not going to be easy, because I’m 100% fpv pilot.

  5. Eddie Nunez on January 6, 2022 at 12:52 pm

    Happy new year. Great video, thanks for sharing.

    Very cool ideas Mike! I will for sure try to put some of my footage to sell on Shutterstock πŸ™‚ But I don’t agree on NFTs. I don’t think they will stay for long. Anyway, have a Great New Year and continue your fantastic job πŸ™‚

    affiliates had become a nightmare. they had lead to a devaluation of the channel cause each and every channel followed the same way, same product release covered by all of the channels and the results had become obvious.

    If the affiliate sales become the motivation the channel will be dying sooner or later.

    Since dji has stopped the previous affiliate program some dji channels have stopped their production or reduced it to real content, which is of value like tips and tricks.

    And I also reduce and unsubscribe 2 times a year all the channels I can not remember the last video I had watched. If I investigate that and see too much affiliate pushing content I start unsubribing.
    I unsubscribed billy kyle, ken horton, rick and finally drone valley as a pure sales or homeshopping channel.
    Too much of affiliate links, unreflected reviews like mavic 3 is better than ever and sales push.
    I simply avoid them first and then I unsubscribe in a moment when enough is enough.

    These channels will mostly grow slower or dy or move ahead into segments with high adrevenues cause car channels can make a living from just 30000 subs in west europe at least with english content.

    Most channel will suffer a lot in the moment when the drone industry will go down faster cause drones sales and consumer volume is declining already.

    Love it Mike! Such an insightful video both for someone who’s just starting and someone who’s been doing stuff for a while and is looking for a way to diversify.

  20. GM Drones UK on January 6, 2022 at 1:24 pm

    Thanks for sharing your ideas, great to hear how you started. At present my main income is from being sub-contracted with local chartered surveyors, for roofing and structural visual inspection. πŸ‘

    Thanks, Mike! I was hoping you would do a video like this. At this point drone photography is just a hobby, but was always wondering how can this grow in to something bigger. You are a true inspiration!

    Really nice video bother ! Keep It real !!! πŸ™‚

    For the purpose of the video I decided to not disclose the exact amount of money I’ve made in 2021, as I don’t feel like it will contribute to anything besides bragging to you guys, which is not the point of the video.

    Thanks Mike for the great information you put in this compared small video πŸ˜€

  27. Sam Perez on January 6, 2022 at 1:33 pm

    great video mike! nfts will definitely make good money if you know how to play around it. one question, from the money that you make, how much of it is made with dji drones vs homebuilt 5” drones? I dont own any dji drones but maybe i should! what do you think

  28. Don Mcdo on January 6, 2022 at 1:34 pm

    Nice Bro, thanks for that ideas… i used DJI M2 for my Travel Vlog.

    I experimented with uploading footage to Shutterstock but the copyright issues are ridiculous. I even had shots declined due to graffiti in the distance as well as a flag in many of the shots. It seems it only works if it’s generic beach or forest shots with nothing in the background. I might explore it again in 2022.

  32. Kiwi T on January 6, 2022 at 1:43 pm

    Thanks Mike, great inspirational video.
