    Does making youtube videos count? You can get money from youtube, so do I need a licence to fly a Mini 2?

  2. Jepu Tv on May 9, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    Similar to driver’s license, obtaining a drone license is no longer a question of should, but when. Whether your flights are recreational or commercial, as long as you plan to fly a drone in Canada, you need to get licensed in either basic or advanced operations. Any thoughts abouts this?

  3. Nutty_Noonan47 on May 9, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    So if I have a mini 2 it’s fine to post pictures and videos on Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat recreationally ?

  4. Lal Mawia on May 9, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    good idea

  5. Raymond Shack on May 9, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    If everyone would take the time to read the United States Code, and the constitution, you would never register anything with any government agency again, because you dont have to, and the only reason you do, is because most people dont know even the basics of law much less the bill of rights or the constitution Hosea 4:6 ……….18 U.S. Code 241 and 242

  6. Hamilton G. on May 9, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    Thank you 👍🏻

  7. arpaulus on May 9, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    Sooo, not mentioning that this is for the USA?

  8. rhyn70 on May 9, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    DJI Mavic Mini 1,2 or3. No registering needed EXCEPT Commercial(Paid to Fly).

  9. TreasureSweeper on May 9, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    So what actually is considered "getting paid"? Based on what you mentioned is everyone posting videos of drone footage on youtube and getting paid by google considered "getting paid" and legally responsible for being licensed?

  10. Life above 8,000 ft. on May 9, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    flying recreationally doesn’t mean you are not getting paid…it has to do with intent…..if you go out to inspect your roof…you need a 107 your not getting paid but the intent wasn’t to fly recreationally.

  11. Neural Zynapse on May 9, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    I love how redundant you have to be for all our short attention span folks including myself, this actually will get through people’s head because you explained this beautifully, thank you brother for the simple explanation! Keep it up!

  12. Paul Harris on May 9, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    If you are getting any compensation for your drone footage regardless of how small, including using it in a monetized YouTube video, you must have your 107 license. Flying your drone to take photos of your house in order to sell it would be considered a commercial use of your drone.

  13. Arnold jimenez on May 9, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    I have a mini 2 can i fly by the parks or beach open field from long beach california

  14. Eric G on May 9, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    Hypothetical screnario: Flew my recreationally registered drone and took some pretty sweet pics that I post to social media. Someone steals the pic(s) and uses them on a website for a business. Will I be held responsible for the violation if they get caught using them? And can I sue them for taking them from me? Thanks in advance!

  15. Stephen Powstinger on May 9, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    Do you suppose the enforcers (FAA whatever) might carry a scale around and if they catch you, you better not have the propeller guard on your Magic Mini or you’re over.

  16. David Lauridsen on May 9, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    Just a minor nitpick. You repeatedly make the commercial distinction as "you are getting / got paid." That is NOT the definition of commercial. While true that if you got paid for doing a flight, that is commercial, you can fly a drone "commercially" and NOT receive compensation. The purpose of the flight itself is what determines whether the flight is considered commercial. For example, if you take aerial footage of your house to add to a real estate listing or even to inspect your own roof, that IS considered a commercial purpose (even though you received no compensation for doing it, and even if it is your own property) and requires Part 107 certification.

  17. Duston Landscapes on May 9, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    Laws are to be broken

  18. David Pozzi on May 9, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    I have a 249g drone, flying recreationaly. But I’m in class D airspace. Do I have to seek authorization to fly? Using the Aloft app? If so, I think I need to register my drone because FAA needs it to authorize. As I understand it, I do not need authorization to fly below tree or building height in class D airspace.

  19. jimbolyo on May 9, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    Thank you for all the info!!

  20. videosofblessings on May 9, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    Considering buying as Snaptain SP600N. (700g) for recreational use.. I’m hearing so many different answers. I take it I need to register it but I hear the minute I put the video on YouTube I also have to get the license and a TRUST certificate even if I’m not getting any money for it. Is this true? What exactly do I need? Thanks

  21. TwilightWolfSpirit on May 9, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Thank you! Clear video straight and to the point.

  22. eksboks148 on May 9, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    Wait.. what??? I got the part 107 license but I didn’t have to go through any tests, reviews, or even pay extra, just 5 bucks and it says I have it and yes I’m on the official site, I checked a million times, I’m confused

  23. Paul Harris on May 9, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    In 2022 you now need to review the FAA online TRUST material and pass the online test before you fly any drone.

    "Federal law requires all recreational flyers to pass an aeronautical knowledge and safety test. The FAA developed The Recreational UAS Safety Test (TRUST) to meet this requirement."

    After completing the test you download a certificate that states you’ve meet this requirement.

  24. James Ramsey on May 9, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    You need to take this video down you now need your TRUST cert to fly…..

  25. Pastofino on May 9, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Thank you for the info.

  26. The Laundry Room on May 9, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Good video. Question – I registered my drone and got TRUST certification. I got airspace authorization to fly at my neighborhood park under 400 feet. However the city I live in prohibits recreational drone flying in city limits. Am I legal to fly at the park because the FAA authorized me to do so?

    Drones are the future of aviation. By installing a computer instead of a pilot the jet is lighter and slimmer, which reduces drag.
    Also when they get shot down the enemy doesn’t get your pilot — just your computer. What good is that gonna do them? How can you get information from a captured computer? I can’t even get my VCR to stop blinking 12:00.
    Drones can now shoot defeat Migs, Sukhois, dragons, flying saucers — anything that flies without our permission.
    The Russians cannot make anything like it so they attack Ukraine with rocks, Mig-21s and crossbowmen. Of those 3 the crossbowmen should do the most damage.
    To whom it may concern, these are my favorite art books:
    – Icon by Frank Frazetta
    – Infinite Worlds by Vincent DiFate
    – Great Fighter Jets of the Galaxy 1 by Tim Gibson

  29. Boise Houses Online on May 9, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    I wanted to make youtube videos of the subdivision areas and I’m not selling the videos would I still need a licenses to fly the drone?

  30. Low or No Cost Hacks on May 9, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Thanks for settling a rather heated argument. Your word is evidently better than mine since a viewing of this finally shut everyone the #@$& up. I guess you just have one of those faces…

    BTW , is it really true air traffic radar at least 50 miles away can detect a Mavic Mini 2 above 400 feet? It has a very low profile and is mostly plastic , so I say no. But what if you launch from a tall hill or structure? I say you can push the limits in the right areas and go way the heck up there above 400 and technically not get in trouble.

    Imagine this scenario: A drone is launched from a high place near a peak that’s 2500 feet or even more above sea level , the drone is kept under 400 feet above that launch point as per regs. Total actual height now equals at least 2900 feet. A pilot in a Cessna or whatever comes along away from the peak and hits it even though he is in the 3000 minimum safety altitude and the drone is within limits of the launch point height. My brother in law is a pilot who said recreational flying just to sightsee is best done at that height or else he prefers it. Not sure. Anyways..The pilot gets in trouble or the drone operator? Both?

    I highly suspect the FAA monitors all you YouTube droners and might read this and get ideas. We’ll see. But then again nobody reads my comments or upvotes them so we are probably okay for now. It’s only a matter of time until they make us put some kind of leash on our drones that keeps them without a few yards but we can still take selfies at least. Yay! Did you like that joke , Mr. FAA Man? Here’s another one: Down with the System! Freedoooom! Attica…Attica….Attica…!

  31. Mediaman67 on May 9, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    You need a TRUST now at least – plus – a 107 is needed even if you don’t get paid by a client. – for example, if a youtube channel has drone footage in it, and it’s monetized, you need a 107, even if the footage was shot for rec use to begin with. – silly I know but that is how it goes. if you follow these 4 things, you will be ok – 1) don’t fly over people 2) don’t fly at night 3) don’t fly above 200 ft (most toys are capped at 400ft) 4) line of sight only… if you can’t see it, you can’t fly it!

  32. Dj on May 9, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Too many restrictions to fly. That’s why idiots fly rogue

  33. Feast with Pete on May 9, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    What if I’m trying to shoot some footage for a wedding do I need part 107 and register my drone even if it weighs less than 249 grams?

  34. Stephen Sheldon on May 9, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    What if I use my drone for photos and videos to promote my fishing charter business? I make money using my boat but would like to get videos and photos to put on my page.

  35. Second Chance on May 9, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    Fortunately we (us here in New Zealand) only need a license if our drone is 25kg or over 😊

  36. *•.•* Morpheus *•.•* on May 9, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    My question is does it hurt to register your drone rven it’s under the .055 or over recreational only?

    Take a safety course that they recommend also?

  37. Don Neuenschwander on May 9, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Very helpful for new flyers, thank you for posting this!!

  38. eastwood brown on May 9, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    thats right dudes. you CAN fly a drone without any certifcation or registration. Rule 1: have a drone of any size or weight. rule 2: have a big fat dick and do whatever you want all over everywhere.

  39. C47FORCE on May 9, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Why dude keep saying under 249 grams. ???? The law clearly states under 250 grams.

  40. craig woodgate on May 9, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    I’m from the UK and we have to have an license to fly one and a registration unless its a toy

  41. Kat Ogden on May 9, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Thanks for your video

  42. prideOrhonesty on May 9, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    I recommend registering regardless of the weight. It’s nice to just get something done and move on from it instead of always second guessing.

  43. Chris Cosme on May 9, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    Hey nick thanks for the info i have a question do i need a licence.. part 107 or register my drone to flying at night ?..

  44. Larry Owens on May 9, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    You keep going over and over of the same thing, could have done this in half the time

  45. David Page on May 9, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    What If I were flying my drone for fun, without a license, and I took a picture of an accident. Channel News 2 found out that I have a picture of that accident. They want to get it, and they are willing to give me some money. Can I take the money?

  46. Larry Owens on May 9, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    Good video but pretty repetitive, says the same thing over and over

  47. skinny Mitch AIR GUN BROTHERHOOD on May 9, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    Where do I go to get my trust certificate. I understand from the video that I need to go to FAA drop zone. To certify my drone. But I don’t know where to go for the trust certificate if it is necessary. I have a question what if you don’t have a camera on your drone at all.

  48. John Conley on May 9, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    This video should be removed or edited. This information is incorrect. If you get caught flying any drone without taking the easy basic knowledge test called Trust you can get in legal trouble. You have to carry a certificate of completion for this simple test. It only takes a few minutes to get legal.

  49. THEREALSHO-TIME23 on May 9, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    The odds of getting caught is rarely

  50. Bass Player on May 9, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    I got a "Trust" certification, what is that for?
