    Is it possible to capture the raw footage from the drone and higher a video editor instead of editing the video yourself

    Very informative. I have a mavic mini, can I still make money with not having a Mavic Pro. Also, My drone doesn’t have to be registered. Should I register my drone to sell stock footage?

    I do not understand why the FAA has anything to do with individuals using their drone to make some money. I really would rather not have to get this license as it is they know every damn time I launch my drone but I’m definitely able to launch in a lot more spots and little areas throughly Vegas then I previously thought I would. Seems like the whole drone thing is over saturated with people who aren’t really trying to get out there and do something or anything but make YouTube videos that only people in the hobby follow. Idk

    Awesome! Thanks for the upload fellas.

    Hardest thing for me is editing

    Hey there, love the channel and the great info you put out but I wanted to clarify a couple of things. The FAA is very particular about using a drone commercially so I would say that the Part 107 is not something that should be highly considered, but is mandatory if you plan to sell the footage you take. Even giving footage to someone else for free so that they can use it in a commercial setting is classified "in furtherance of a business". Additionally, the night shot of the Ferris wheel, while awesome, is not something normally permitted under the part 107 without a waiver. 30 minutes after sunset (civil twilight) is all that is allowed commercially sans waiver. The last thing, the hyperlapse over the road looking downtown is very much illegal. Part 107 or not, you are not permitted to fly over people or moving vehicles. While I don’t exactly agree with these rules (and I’m certainly not the type to put a call in to the FAA about it) I do think it’s worth addressing these things in the spirit of the very informative channel you have created here. I’d hate for someone to see these shots, try to do it themselves, and get slammed with fines and legal trouble. Again, I love the channel and I’m not trying to stir any pots, just thought that should be made more clear.

    Gonna do this with our good pal Sparrow (Mavic Mini 2) do you think this would be a good drone to start off selling stock footage?
