I have spent a few hours with learning and flying a drone, crashing a into trees a couple of times, and missing the manual landing more than hitting the pad. All of this is get practice and build skills for eventual commercial piloting (more information below). I have found the Autel Robotics drone to be an excellent mix of performance, quality of photos and video, support, and cost. In the next post, I will talk briefly about other manufactures and how they compare to the Autel Robotics.
Some useful websites for the FAA Part 107 drone operator testing and certification for commercial operation.
The following website is for registration of your drone if it meets criteria outlined by the FAA, which applies to most drones on the market today.
The following is a short list of drone manufactures that I have experience with, either from flying or researching the next drone that will be added to the Willow River Dynamics fleet.
