    "If it could be dispersing something".
    "The registration number is on the outside so you don’t need to be exposed to an explosive".
    If somebody’s using a drone in an act of terrorism do you really think they’re going to register it and put the registration number on it?

    Do you realize that every car passing by or parked nearby can pose the same threat to a much greater degree? Do we make similar comments about cars? "The license plate is on the outside so you don’t have to get too close in case it blows up". No we don’t.
    Danielle seems paranoid. I hope she isn’t making the police paranoid 🙁

    Thanks for the information and the helpful information. I do want to point out something I noticed though, the speaker kept misspeaking several times; ie. in regards to drones at .55 pounds and below 55 pounds and she wasn’t corrected by her co-host at all. Also she gave a seemingly contradictory answer concerning the need to show a registration and did not sufficiently differential between "certification" and "registration" and it would have been helpful if she had elaborated more on the difference between 336 hobby registration and Part 107 certification. I know she didn’t intentionally make these mistakes but it is very confusing to viewers and can/will lead to unnecessary confrontations of drone pilots and law enforcement. I was thoroughly confused when she finished and I already know these things. Have a good day.

    The downloadable documents that were available during the original broadcast are not available here. Could these links be added to the description area just below the video?

    I am currently operating my drone as a recreationist. But currently I am taking part 107 training through the Pilot Institute. I live near Ellington Field (Class B) airfield. Is there an office I can take the Part 107 Test at Ellington?

    If your Public Safety organization in a Class B airspace has a COA, do you have to notify anyone when your drone goes up, or does the COA cover that?

    8:05 the first one seems pretty broad and subjective.

    People Don’t take these guidelines seriously! There is a reason are airspace is so safe! I take flying my drone very seriously, I am a pilot first and worry about imagery second.

    Much appreciated! Matter of fact, I am getting ready to take my part 107 EXAM

  13. Freddy Salinas on October 6, 2021 at 8:49 am

    My drone is registered with the FAA. Once I am part 107 licensed, do I have to register it as a commercial drone?

  14. Justin Preisendorfer on October 6, 2021 at 8:51 am

    Thanks for posting. Can we get the compilation of questions that was generated during the presentation? Near the beginning of the presentation we heard that would be emailed to those in attendance. It would be great if it also included links to the documents and websites referenced by the presenters.

    I’m a airline captain and a UAS operator with a part 107 certificate. I’m glad the FAA is setting clear guidelines and regulations for UAS operation. My biggest concern when drones became readily available, that there would be people who do extremely stupid things with these little aircraft. (As have been posted on youtube many times) I’m glad that there is guidance and rules that will keep the national airspace system safer and still allow for the responsible operation for drones. Flying drones is very fun, but requires responsible operators.

    I very much like the idea of having Productions like this one and the whole idea of communication between the FAA, law enforcement and Pilots. However I found this particular presentation very disappointing. I can’t outline everything I didn’t like about it right now but I’ll try and come back later and do that. I would encourage any Leo who watched this to realize that this was in my opinion incomplete to the point of being misleading or inaccurate in some ways. I would suggest that this video should be a starting point, not an ending point for your education about interacting with suas Pilots.

    I have had a situation where an off duty police officer, who happens to be a relative and happens to think all drone owners are peeping Toms, threatened to shoot my drone down. On another occasion, he actually showed up with a shotgun. I wasn’t flying at the time, but his intent was clear. Mind you, I fly over cornfields and open spaces. I am concerned when you say to law enforcement to "take action" without being more specific. To a person like the one I’m dealing with, that would be a big, bright green light to go ahead and shoot it down and maybe claim I was being a threat. Could you possibly be more specific in what kind of activities constitute an actual threat and what kind of law enforcement actions would be appropriate. I’m sure there are situations where shooting it down would be appropriate, but some individuals need to know that there are more appropriate actions that DON’T involve shooting it down. Great video. Thanks.
